  • invitation letter in original from the organizing sport or cultural event association or authority (e.g. university) in Luxembourg, stating the purpose, financial cover and the length of the visit;
  • original certificate of employment or equivalent from the company or organization in Thailand – stating position, length of employment, salary, purpose and duration of the trip, and who will absorb the expense for the visit;
  • bank statement of the last three months from the entity that is covering the cost of the trip;
  • travel medical insurance valid for all Schengen countries covering all risks for the whole duration of stay with a minimum coverage of EUR 30,000. Coverage may include: accident, emergency medical care, hospital based treatment and repatriation. For multiple entry visas, the duration of the insurance contract shall be a year. Applicants can provide a policy from an insurance company based in Europe or in Thailand, for the latter please find the complete list of eligible insurance providers under the link " travel medical insurance". Any other submitted insurance from a Thailand based company will be rejected.
  • minors less than 18 years of age, if traveling alone, have to provide a written consent certified by a public notary of both parents (or legal guardians) having actual custody of the minor. If traveling with one parent only, a written consent certified by a public notary of the other parent is required. If one parent has sole custody, a Court Order bestowing this state of affairs must be submitted. These documents must be legalized by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs first, and finally translated by a sworn translator.
