Hi,

I have seen all the posts about Visas but I am still a little confused.

I fly into Bangkok and fly out of Singapore. I am there for one month. Do I need to sort my visas out before I go?

From the posts that are already on here I think I can get a social visa when I arrive in Bangkok. But I will be travelling through Malaysia to Singapore...so do I need visas for there?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Ali

1) What's your nationality?
2) How long do you plan to be at each of the country mentioned?

Sorry would have been helpful to give that info first!

I am a British citizen and I fly into Bangkok and then fly out of Sinagpore exactly a month later.

Thanks!

British citizens are not required to have a pre-approved visa to travel to Malaysia and Singapore. You will be given visa (stamps in passport) accordingly as you cross the borders.

Brilliant! Thanks for your help! And Thailand I can just get a social visa on arrival?

Yes, you can get a visa on arrival in Bangkok.

OK - just to clear up the comment by the mod above - you do NOT require a visa on arrival, nor will you be given one.

As a British passport holder you are in one of the 40 plus countries that do not need a visa to enter the Kingdom -

you WILL receive a stamp allowing you to stay for 30 days if arriving by international flight. - this is not a visa.

if you arrive by LAND - you will receive a 15 days stamp.

there are signs at the airport for "visa on arrival" you do not need this just go to immigration control, join the line and present your passport.

PS - At present 60 day tourist VISAS can be obtained free (plus admin fee), but these must be obtained BEFORE you arrive in Thailand from any Thai consulate or embassy.
