In most instances, your departure date will be 2 calendar days before the arrival date to ensure that you arrive on the correct date for the retreat. We will assist you in booking your travel tickets.

If you are traveling from the United States or Canada and have a valid passport, then you do not need a visa to enter Thailand.

If you wish to stay longer, you may extend your visa on arrival at the immigration office in Thailand for an additional 30 days. Extending your trip is at your sole discretion and is not included in the cost or planning of The Empath Grounding Retreat.

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE:

Travel insurance is highly recommended for your travels to protect you from cancellations, delays, lost or damaged baggage, medical emergencies, and more. We recommend using Safety Wing, which offers medical and travel insurance across the globe for only $45/month (can be canceled at any time). This price covers one adult along with two minors for free.
