Enjoy the ease of Thailand Elite
The easiest, most secure way to live in Thailand
The Thailand Elite visa is the easiest way to live in Thailand with the security of long-term residency. Elite membership allows you to skip the hassle of meeting visa requirements and dealings with Immigration year after year. If you want to pay for convenience and peace of mind, this is the visa for you.
As a relocation consultant and Elite visa agent, I will not only help you get the Elite visa, but I'll also assist you through your relocation. I'll share relocation tips for expats and assist you to enter Thailand, free of charge. You only pay the cost of the visa.
Packages range from 5-20 years, and start at $18,000 USD.
Assistance you can trust
I am an agent with Star Visa Service, an Authorized Seller and Service Agent for the Thailand Elite Membership program. Star Visa Service is the main service point for all Elite members in Chiang Mai.
When we assist you to obtain Elite membership, you receive not only Elite privileges and services included in your membership, but additional support we provide exclusively to our clients.
Benefits of working with me:
+ Assistance to meet COVID-specific requirements to enter Thailand, including your COE
+ Current Promotion: Applicants applying now receive 1 Year of Accident Insurance included
+ I host events exclusively for my Elite clients. When the COVID situation improves, we will celebrate with a yacht party off the coast of Koh Samui!
+ $50 USD donated to Thai Freedom House, an organization that provides emergency aid for refugees from Myanmar
As a Sales Agent, I don't charge any service fees (I receive commission for clients I assist). That means it doesn't cost you any more than working with Elite directly!
I genuinely love my job. I'm honored to help my clients create a life of joy and abundance in Thailand, and I'm excited for the opportunity to help you through your transition too!
I have just completed a more than two month process of assessing, decision-making and executing a plan for obtaining my Thai Elite visa, and Hailey has been an absolute star in shepherding me through it all. Especially in the difficult and changing conditions of Covid, her diligent professionalism made all the difference.
From my first consultation through to my arrival in Thailand, Hailey was a reliable, knowledgeable and courteous partner. She always made herself available, worked hard to track down accurate info, and generally gave me peace of mind that I was in good hands. She did all the leg work on the application and also resolved a number of random, tricky matters that cropped up along the way with both Thai immigration and Thai Elite themselves.
I don’t know how I would have made it through this process without her help and am very grateful for her dedicated efforts on my behalf. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a smart, honest and reliable consultant to help with their Thai visa.

Wouldn’t have wanted to go through this process without her assistance. Especially during this whole “situation”.
Although the Thai speak English - trust me - you want Hailey there “by your side” from scratch to the end.

Hailey was extremely organized and led me through the process step by step.Hailey gave me a list of everything I had to do to apply for the Certificate of Entry; she made it very easy for me not to forget anything. And she always responded quickly to any of my questions or concerns.With cancelled flights, resulting ASQ changes, and Thai government changes, I had to obtain several updated COEs and she did all that for me. Hailey supported me all through this process. She is used to Thailand and was able to help me understand and not worry about the changes.In summary, Hailey was a needed part of my move to Thailand. I am greatly appreciative of her support, knowledge and positive attitude.She made a rather difficult process much more accessible. I am glad I chose to use her and definitely would do so again!- Jim F., American retiree / Spiritual Teacher relocating from Mexico
Thanks Hailey for such wonderful service! 5 stars!
From start to finish Hailey took care of everything for me - even some extra steps that were particular to my case!
Communication was very clear.
Highly recommended. I will ask Hailey to help with my brother's visa application next year.

Great thanks to Hailey @RetireinChiangMai
I have been trying to navigate the Thai Embassy in LA web site. When it came to filling out the paperwork and figuring out what I needed to do, it became very frustrating. I searched YouTube for help and found a video on RetireinChiangMai, with Hailey. The video was very informative and went thru all the steps necessary to complete the forms and when to submit the correct information. My wife and I scheduled a phone conversation with Hailey and she assured us we could get to Thailand by April like we had planned.
Hailey helped us with all the paperwork to get the Elite 5 year visa and the visa exemption upon entry when we arrived on April 3rd. I emailed Hailey multiple times and she responded back with encouragement and positive information, including while we were at the airport getting ready to fly to Tokyo and the people at the airport were saying the visa upon arrival was suspended. Hailey came thru with her positive and caring response as usual. Thanks to Hailey, my wife and I are in Thailand on 3 April starting our quarantine.
Thanks Hailey for your commitment.

I don't normally review companies as I guess there seem to be so many fake reviews about that I wonder about their true value.That said, I have absolutely no problem reviewing Hailey, as I believe the service she provided was second to none. Not only did she help us with the Elite Visa applications, but in these testing times for travel, she supplied not only a road map (figuratively speaking) of how to get here with the (constantly changing) documentation but completed virtually all of it for us via online services.Not only that but her fee is included in the price you pay to Elite Visa, so even if you did it all yourself you'd pay the same price regardless. I highly recommend her without hesitation, and indeed the Elite Visa people here are also superbly efficient.-Paul T., British superstar relocating from Spain
I found Hailey from her YouTube channel explaining about how to apply for Thai Elite Visa. As I was very interested, I immediately contacted Hailey via email after I visited her website.
At that time, I was not sure whether she was a right person to help me. Nevertheless, I made an appointment with her to discuss more details and to understand the application process for Elite Visa.
Subsequently, I was very impressed with Hailey's knowledge about Elite Visa application. She answered all the questions that I asked very patiently. Hailey provided me her full support throughout my application process, providing information ASQ hotels, COE submission, Covid health insurance service providers and all other information related to Covid quarantine in Thailand. Hailey was very responsive whenever I needed her support during the whole process. Interestingly, I even took her advice for choosing my ASQ hotel in Bangkok.
Thanks to Hailey, I have now successfully become an Elite Visa Member of Thailand. I have also recently moved to Thailand.
In summary, I am sure that I made the best decision in choosing Retire in Chiang Mai to help me in my Thailand Elite Visa application. I hope to keep in touch with Hailey for other assistance that she offers.

Hailey made it easy for me to get the thai elite visa. She filled out all the forms for me, walked me through the whole process -- and the process is not so easy in our current covid age (you're going to want an assistant to help with the myriad things the government asks of you). With Hailey I could just have her handle all of it -- and she can do your quarterly reportings too. So I think if you want a visa in today's world and planning to come to Thailand she's a very good choice. And she's also just very nice, like you see in the videos here.
-Brant, Canadian Entrepreneur moving from Korea
Hailey and her colleague Sammie (aka The Visa Angel !) have nailed their business process for getting this visa. This process was extremely smooth & fast! In my life/career I have churned through ~8 residency/passport processes and this was honestly <5% of the average of previous dramas. It is almost as if Thailand wants us there... you don't quite get that vibe in the surrounding area!! I'm pretty happy that I stumbled upon this vid & took action!
-John, CPA from Australia
Hailey has been a wonderful asset with helping me get my Elite visa. She is extremely knowledgeable with all of the requirements including what is needed to enter Thailand. Hailey took care of everything for me and made the process very easy. Highly recommend!
- Shawn, American moving from Bali
I found Hailey online through her YouTube channel RetireinChiangMai come at just the nick of time. I was in a transitional phase of leaving my old life in the Middle East and moving back to the Far East.
I came across the Thai Elite Visa but the steps and process seemed cumbersome especially with the added covid requirements. Hailey's calm demeanor was just what I needed during this stressful time.
She was there for me every step along the way from the documents for the application and successfully getting the Thai Elite Visa Card. Always ready and available to answer any of my questions, even though I asked them a million times before
If you need someone to make the process easier, and take the guesswork out of it, don't hesitate to reach out to Hailey today.
-Michelle, Cryptocurrency investor from South Africa
Just would like to drop a quick note to anyone interested in moving to Thailand, that when I was considering moving I happened to come across Hailey’s YouTube video and contacted her accordingly. She was a huge help in guiding me through the numerous hurdles and believe me it can be daunting! However her pleasant manner and infinite patience was a breath of fresh air and I am now living my dream having got my elite visa and now reside in Bangkok worry free. Thank you Hailey
thanks to RETIRE IN CHIANG MAI I got my elite visa very easy, fast and without stress and now I'm in Thailand!

I recommend to anybody that need a visa for come to Thailand in this hard time for travelers to contact her.

The Most Common Mistakes on Elite Visa Applications
- Signature on application doesn't match passport signature
- The question "Have you ever overstayed your visa in Thailand?" does NOT mean a 30 day extension on a tourist visa or an extension due to the COVID-19 visa amnesty. If you have stayed longer than your visa (and any extensions or renewals) is valid for, you will have an "overstay" stamp in your passport. If you're not sure, be sure to email us so we can clarify if you have ever overstayed.
