Apply for VISA in your home country (For Russians, Royal Thai Embassy is located in Moscow), secure a COVID-19 test with a negative result, have a COVID-19 health insurance coverage, and undergo a mandatory quarantine (14 days) at Alternative State Quarantine facilities upon arrival.
Apply for tourist VISA (30-90 days) to have a look at universities (undergo the same procedures mentioned above); 30 days before your VISA ends you have to make a decision and re-apply for student VISA at the university of your choice.
