Discussion on a Schengen-style ASEAN single visa is still underway, while Thailand plans to start a single visa scheme with Cambodia as the first step.

Thailand plans to start a single visa with Cambodia – but the problem of different visa fees needs to be tackled first.
Officials from other ASEAN countries also welcomed ASEAN single visa.
