In a move to encourage Indians to visit Thailand, the Thai Immigration has reduced passport validity to only one month before expiry date.
Earlier, for the Indian traveller who wished to visit Thailand, normally the validity of passport was more than 6 months.
However, with the new rule change, the passport validity has been reduced to only one month before the expiry date.
This rule is applied for both Visa on Arrival and Visa at the Consulate.
