Hey guys...ive come for your help once again!

Im sorry if this is explained in the FAQ above but i couldnt make heads or tails of that ha ha...

so im goin to thailand at the end of the month and am stayin for a little over a month but will need a 60 day visa. according to this website: http://www.thaivisa.com/272.0.html you can get one at a immigration office which sounds all fine and dandy and im willing to do...my problem here is that i cant really find anything to back this up...is it bogus information? secondly its not very clear about weather or not i will have to pay..i dont mind paying just would be nice to know if i have to or not...

lastly, if i do go into the immigration office and request this extention then how are they in there with english, is it easy to do? my thai is virtually non-existant ha ha...

much thanks in advance!

Matt,
My friend here in Vegas just got 2 free 60 day tourist visas last week from the LA Thai Consulate. I would call/e-mail your Thai Embassy/Consulate and tell them you need a 60 day tourist visa. You will have your answer quickly. Thai Immigration is used to farangs that don't speak Thai. You will have no problem if you choose to extend your visa.
