Schengen Visa Information
for Thai Nationals

Schengen States:



Czech Republic
























Thai citizens seeking to travel to any of the 26 Schengen Area countries are required to obtain a valid visa in order to gain entrance. Once issued a valid Schengen visa, Thai Nationals can enjoy the freedom of movement to travel around to any of the following 26 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.

One common confusion that most applicants have and always ask is "Am I allowed to travel to the United Kingdom if I am in possession of a valid Schengen visa?" and vice-versa "Am I allowed to travel to the Schengen Area if I am in possession of a valid UK visa?" The answer to both these questions is No. You must apply for a visa separately for the United Kingdom and a visa separately for the Schengen Area. Even though the United Kingdom is part of the European Union, it maintains opt-outs of the Schengen Agreement.

Before applying, make sure to check to see if you qualify for that specific visa. Depending on the purpose of your trip (Holiday, vacation, sightseeing, group visit, tourism, private family or friend visit, education, business) there are different requirements you will need to meet and demonstrate.
