45 days before the student departure date

Hi [Name],

As we have stated in the Thailand Program Guide, you will be entering Thailand on a Tourist Visa. You do NOT have to apply for a Tourist Visa in advance as Thailand issues Tourist Visas upon arrival to US Citizens. The Tourist Visa is good for 30 days upon arrival, so plenty of time!

While you are participating in a Career and Technical Training program, it is important that you enter Thailand on a Tourist Visa as you will also be participating in some “tourist” activities (elephant sanctuary, market visits, waterfalls, etc.) with a licensed Tourist Guide!

Also, when you are asked for an address on the Visa Form, please put the following:

Street Address: Santitam Guest House, 61 Santitham Rd.
Province/State: Tambon Chang Phueak,
City: Chiang Mai
Zip: 50300
Country: Thailand

That’s all for now! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
