Thailand Visa Policy

Millions of people per year come to Thailand for holidays, business, etc. It is a very safe country to travel in; still, as with travel to all places, one needs to be mindful enough about money and personal belongings.

At Alcohol Rehab Asia, we want your travel and program to be enjoyable and effective. To this end, we meet most clients at the airport on arrival and escort them to the center on Koh Chang (Elephant Island), or directly to the hospital when it is deemed necessary for you to be evaluated by the doctor prior to checking into Alcohol Rehab Asia.
