The visa is being issued for short stays not exceeding 15 days, with applicants required to show proof of their departure from Thailand within that period. 

They must also have a minimum of 30 days remaining before their passport date expires , and the passport must have a blank page available for the visa.

Applicants will need to complete an online form and upload the required paperwork. 

They will also need to provide their address in Thailand and have sufficient funds for their stay, which is defined as 10,000 baht per person or 20,000 baht per family.

The usual 2,000 baht visa fee is being waived between now and until 30 April 2020, but applicants will still need to pay a processing fee levied by the websites offering the service. 

This is currently 530 baht, but will increase to 560 baht from January 1, 2020.
