hi guys, i'm going to thailand in august and travelling around se asia for 6 months or so. im gonna be in thailand for 3 weeks, then going into cambodia. after 2 weeks in cambodia back to thailand. then im going into laos, thru vietnam, cambodia again, and then back to thailand.
what type of visa do i need? will i be entitled to the thirty day visa when i arrive at the airport at the start of my trip? my return flight is set for four months after i arrive at the moment, but i might put it back. im only gonna be in thailand for less than a month at a time.
it seems i might have to buy a 30 day transit visa before i fly out to thailand. joey
up to 30 days - free on the border, up to 60 days - 25 pounds from embassy
Just get the 30 day visa on arrival to Thailand. Cambodia will issue you a visa on arrival for about $22, good for 30 days. Get your VN visa in PP for about $30, depends how fast you need it. Once you have done the bouncing around, get a tourist visa for Tland in PP, good for 60 days, can extend it another 30 days. Do another run to Cambodia or Malaysia and you have another 90 days. Good luck Joey.
cheers mike! if i get the 30 days at the airport and then a cambodian visa at the border, will i get 30 days again for free when i re-enter thailand? thing is i have to go back to thailand after a couple of weeks in cambodia. i have to see my girlfriend off at the airport in bangkok. i don't want to buy a visa in pp for thai then though, as i literally only plan on seeing her off before leaving thai again!
in short... i will be in thailand for three weeks, then cambodia for two weeks. then back to thailand for two weeks (at most!) to see my girlfriend off. after that i will be heading for vietnam through cambodia.
after all that i will go to laos, and then come back to thailand for a big relax somewhere! i would probably get a 60 day thai visa in laos (basically at the end of the hectic part of my trip) cos thats when i would want to spend a longer time in thailand.
so, will i get stamped into thailand no worries after cambodia?
