What is the difference between Elite Visa & Permanent Residence in Thailand?
In Thailand, there are different requirements for applying for and maintaining legal permanent residency than there are for Elite Card membership. Once granted permanent residency, a person is no longer required to leave the nation and has few legal responsibilities. With the Elite card, such is not the case. While Elite cards do not expire, permanent residency does. Permanent residency, however, is reversible. Like a protracted tourist visa, the Elite Card. Although elite status can persist for a long time, it is not a right to live there permanently in Thailand. A visa is not a status of permanent residence. To obtain it, one must already have a visa. Elite card status is not a prerequisite for seeking Thai citizenship; permanent residency is. It is not regarded as residency and is therefore one of the requirements to seek naturalization Thai citizenship because it is essentially a very lengthy tourist visa. Obtaining a work permit while in Elite status depends on the situation and necessitates dealing with immigration once more. Work authorization is required with permanent residency as well, but the procedure is much simpler. In contrast to Elite status, which does not require a re-entry permit (endorsement) to enter or exit the country, permanent residency requires specific actions to exit the country.
