you can get only 60 day visas from the consulate.

If you need to extend your visa you can do it in Thailand - but by crossing the border you can get a new visa without paying an extension fee.

Tourist visa is valid only 60 days. However, I suggest you to do visa run by buying low cost ticket to Singapore and take a trip there..Cheap flight could be only @ US$ 40 if you fly during weekday.

It's easier than you take a bus to do visa run in border ( Myanmar or Cambodia )

For more information, please contact the Office of Immigration Bureau, Soi Suan Plu, off South Sathorn Road, Bangkok 10120, Tel. (662) 287-3101-10 or at website

Do let me know , if you need more help.:)
