    I am going to be traveling SE Asia starting Nov 5th, I will be going in and out of Thailand more than 3 times to other countries. Does anyone know what I need to get? As in do I need a multiple entry non-immigrant visa? I will be traveling for 120 days. I do know I have to leave Thailand every 30 days but wondering after the 3rd re-entry will Thailand let me come in again? I hope this makes sense cause I am needing the answers! THANK YOU!!!!!

    That's a tough one. First off it's 30 days if you arrive by air but half of that if you arrive on a land border. I'd say you'd be OK but it might be worth checking a Thai consulate as the Thais seem to make the rules up as they go along.

    See here:

    "Foreigners who enter Thailand under the Tourist Visa Exemption category and would like to leave and re-enter may only stay for a cumulative duration which does not exceed 90 days and is within a 6-month period from the date of first entry. (Passport or travel document must be valid for at least 6 months after the date of first entry)."

    So as I understand it, you can go in and out of Thailand provided the cumulative duration of your stay does not exceed 90 days for a 6-month period beginning from date of first entry.

    Didn't they scrap the "3 times and you're out" rule a few years ago? I think it's just 90 days stay every six months now. Captain Bob will know I expect.
