    Hi Guys

    Need some help please..

    We have booked flights from the UK to Bangkok leaving March returning Sept, so for 6 mths in total. I have read to my horror that we may need visas ? We only intend to stay overnight first night and last night so two nights in total. Do we need a visa if so which one and where do I get it from. Can I get it upon arrival?

    Also will immigration let us through with a one way flight ticket to Vietnam or does it need to be a return ticket? I hear there rules are very strict and we really do not want to be denied entry.

    We need you help.

    Many thanks in advance

    Bit unclear about your travel plans, but if you are arriving in Thailand with an air ticket to Vietnam (within 30 days) you will get a free visa for 30 days for Thailand.
    Regardless, you will need a visa for Vietnam; you do not need a return airticket.
    If you enter Thailand by land, you will get a 15 day free visa.
    Have fun,
