Applying for a visa? Let R2A take the time and hassle off your shoulders!


We know from experience the visa application process can be very confusing. Complete it incorrectly and it can delay your application, cause you undue stress and even cost you the non-refundable application fee.

Retire to Asia has two services covering all four SE Asian countries that offer long term retirement visas: 

Thailand Visa

There are two visa options to consider; a 6-months (multi-entry option – max stay 60 days per entry) and the usual comprehensive 12-month multi-entry retirement visa (O-A Visa).

What are the main differences between the two:

The 6-month visa is suitable for those that wish to trial living in Thailand before committing longer term.

For those that intend to stay longer, the 12-month O-A multi-entry visa will be more suitable as there are no requirements to exit and re-enter the country during this period. International Private Health Insurance over Travel Insurance is far more suitable if intended stays are longer. 

What does the Retire to Asia Thai Visa Application Service include?

Includes the following;

How much does it cost?

The 6-month multi-entry tourist visa cost is $595 and the 12-month O-A retirement visa is $795.

Both fees are inclusive of GST and the non-refundable Royal Thai Consulate Application Fee of $300, which Retire to Asia will pay on your behalf on lodgement of the application. 

Indonesia (Bali & Lombok), Philippines & Malaysia Visa

Malaysia and the Philippines require the retirement visa application process to be conducted through local registered visa agents.

Whereas for Indonesia, there is a requirement that all applications have a local sponsor as part of the visa application process.

Due to the above visa application requirements you will need to go through a local visa agent for your country of choice.

As part of our broad range of services, Retire to Asia has conducted extensive due diligence to find the right local partners for you to deal with. Our local partners will professionally manage and implement your visa application on your behalf in a cost competitive manner.
