Lets have a quick look on Thailand Visa FAQs.

1. What is the difference between Thailand Visa, Visa on Arrival and e-visa on arrival?

Answer: Pre visa is what you apply and get at any Royal Embassy of Thailand located at almost all major cities in India.

Normal visa on arrival is a traditional kind of on arrival visa which you get upon arrival at any of international airports of Thailand. You have to submit the required documents and visa fees only at the visa on arrival counters.

While in e-visa, you have to apply and pay the fees online and print the e-visa application receipt and fly to Thailand. But in this case too, you have to take the final visa at special e-visa on arrival counters.

2. Are bank statements required for Thailand visa/e-visa on arrival?

Answer: No, bank statements are not required for visa/e-visa on arrival. But if you apply at any Thai Embassy, it is required.

3. How much cash should I carry for Thailand visa/e-visa on arrival?

Answer: You have to carry minimum 10,000 Thai Baht.

4. Do I need to pay at counter in case of e-visa on arrival?

Answer: No, you will pay only online in case of e-visa on arrival and pay at counters in case of normal visa on arrival.

5. Why should I take e-visa on arrival?

Answer: There are a lot of long queues at normal visa on arrival counters. Sometimes it takes more than 2 hrs for getting the visa. But if you already applied the e-visa on arrival, you neither need to fill any form nor submit any fees at counters. There are special counters of e-visa on arrival for producing the e-visa receipt only, so you get visa faster than normal visa on arrival.

क्या थाईलैंड में सेक्स टूरिज्म या देह व्यापार क़ानूनी है? Is sex tourism legal in Thailand?

थाईलैंड टूरिज्म: एक नजर दोस्तों जैसा की आप यह भली भांति जानते हैं की थाईलैंड tourism दुनिया भर में काफी लोकप्रिय है जिसका प्रमुख कारण वहां का sex tourism या देह व्यापार है। थाईलैंड में घूमने के लिए तो बहुत सारी चीजें हैं- जैसे खूबसूरत sea beaches, मंदिर, पुराने स्मारक या historical monuments वगैरह। लेकिन फिर भी ऐसा माना जाता है की मुख्यतः लोग वहां जिस चीज के लिए जाते हैं वो sex tourism ही है, बाकी सभी चीजें secondary है या उतने important नहीं हैं। थाईलैंड यात्रा: कोलकाता से बैंकाक (Thailand Trip: Kolkata to Bangkok) बैंकाक से पटाया (Bangkok to Pattaya) पटाया की एक शाम और कोरल द्वीप की सैर (Walking Street and Coral Island, Pattaya) बैंकाक शहर- वाट फ़ो और वाट अरुण (Bangkok City: Wat Pho and Wat Arun) Buy Thailand 4G SIM(Siam Center, BKK or DMK Airport Pick Up) कुछ लोग ऐसे भी कहते मिलेंगे की एक बार थाईलैंड जाने के बाद character certificate बनवाना पड़ेगा क्योंकि वहां जाने का मतलब है चरित्र में दाग लगना ! वैसे ये कुछ conservative या पुराने ख्यालात वाले लोग ही कह सकते हैं, क्यों

Top 4 waterfalls of Jharkhand- Hundru, Dassam, Hirni and Jonha

When the word ‘Jharkhand’ comes in our mind, we think forest, greenery, hills, valley, rivers etc. Jharkhand is such a state in our country which is very rich in mines and minerals, flora and fauna, but unfortunately, due to whatever reason, tourism has not sprouted here like other Indian states. This is still a tourist deficient region but in no way it ever means that it has not the capability to attract the mass. Jharkhand has almost every package that any traveler needs, it has a lot of possibilities in tourism. Jharkhand has got everything from the mother nature, but lacks only the fundamental and infrastructural development.   Hills and Valleys of Jharkhand- Parasnath, Netarhat, Dalma and Kiriburu.
