Thailand presents a lovely contrast between the bustle of city life and the tranquil views of green rice paddies, mountainous landscapes and pristine beaches. The country is also a compelling investment destination exhibiting environments that attract industrial players and investors across all sectors. The country also offers Thailand Elite, the membership programme that handles all the facilitations, conveniences, business privileges and lifestyle benefits for all friends of Thailand. No wonder many business owners, entrepreneurs, investors and even long-staying tourists have chosen Thailand as their second home, if not their new home.

Through Thailand Privilege Card’s Thailand Elite membership programme, guests come as friends and leave as family. As “friends” of Thailand, frequent travellers, foreign guests and their families can enjoy special visa privileges and enhanced benefits the moment they arrive. Guests experience the ease and comfort of VIP status while revelling in Thai heritage and hospitality.

Showcasing the epitome of Thai hospitality, Thailand Elite’s representatives welcome members at the airport as they disembark. Guests are granted special visa privileges as they smoothly go through immigration. Their baggage is collected so members feel safe as they are escorted to their personal limousines. Whether through business facilitation, networking or connections, Thailand Elite is happy to assist and guide its foreign guests.

Members who also apply for the Privilege Entry visa can choose to extend their stay for up to a year without leaving the country.

Aiming to be golfers’ utmost delight, Thailand Elite endows foreigners with the best vacation and business experiences. The country is popular for its many world-class golf courses, from the rolling beachside fairways in Phuket, Hua Hin and Pattaya to the scenic mountainside courses of Chiang Mai.

Apart from offering special access to golf courses, Thailand Elite also accords guests with Thai-style care and indulgence through spa treatments, Thai massages and foot massages in the finest health resorts across the country – touted as a paradise of well-being. Members can also take advantage of medical services from Thailand’s leading hospitals and health facilities, which are among the world’s best.

Membership categories include Elite Ultimate Privilege, Elite Family Excursion and Elite Easy Access. Validity is from five to 20 years with membership and annual fees ranging from 500,000 Thai baht (HK$118,000) to 2 million baht.
