    Apologies in advance for asking questions probably asked 100 times before. I've read some conflicting info, so I wanted clarification.

    I'm flying into Thailand so I know I'll get a 30 day visa, but from there I'll be crossing by land into Laos and then Cambodia. I then plan to fly from Cambodia into Thailand to get another 30 day visa, then eventually travel overland to Singapore where I fly to Oz. So:

    1) I read recently that I need proof of onward travel to get a 30 day visa. My singapore flight is 4 months after my first Thailand entry. Will I encounter a problem with this?

    2) Are there any issues with flying from Cambodia to Thailand, in terms of getting another 30 day visa?

    Your help and patience is appreciated.

    I understand proof of onward travel is technically required, but I've never been asked for any in around 15 entries into Thailand by plane or overland.

    Hi Chris,

    As per Lother. In theory you need proof, but in practise legitimate tourists are not asked for it.

    2) No.

    Just resurrecting this post.

    I've recently read about people not being allowed to board their flight to Thailand because they don't have proof of onward travel within 30 days. I'm flying from HK to BKK with Air Asia and I don't have proof of onward travel. Should I be concerned?
