Hi guys! More questions :)

So I need Thai visa advice.

I fly into Bangkok, and then 3 days later I leave for Cambodia. Then the next month I travel overland from Laos to Thailand where I'll be spending roughly 28 days in Thailand.

Should I pay £28 (each entry, so £56) for a multi entry visa. Or can I get away with arriving on a visa waiver, and getting a single entry visa for when I return?

My only worry is if the visa is a stamp in my passport, that will get used up when I first arrive and then I'll only hve 15 days when I come in overland and I need a month.

Help?!

With the new visa rules, you will only get a 15-day social visit pass when you cross overland, compared to a 30-day pass if you enter by air. So if you want to stay for more than 15 days (you said you planned for 28 days) on your second entry into Thailand (overland from Laos), you'll have to get the Tourist Visa.

With a multiple-entry Tourist Visa, they will only check the number of entries you do and also the total amount of days you spend in Thailand. Say, you have a 2-entry, 60-day Tourist Visa. You arrive in Bangkok, stay for 3 days, and depart for Cambodia. So that means you may stay for 57 days on your next entry.

I just got my triple entry visa for free with the current free visa promotion.

Rob,
Good for you. Thailand is trying to encourage tourism by waiving all visa fees. All TP members should take advantage of this opportunity if they are heading over to Thailand.

Hummmm, thats quite interesting. How does one go about sorting this free visa out!??

Can it be done over the ti'interweb, or would i have to post my passport off to an agency?
