Multi entry Thailand
2nd June, 2010
Bit confused as to what visa i will need for Thailand.
Basically i am flying into Bankgkok in late October - probably staying 1 week in thailand then on to Cambodia and Vietnam. Back in to Thailand in early December and will need a visa for more than 30 days as leaving from Bangkok on 8th Jan 2011. Can i apply for a multi entry visa in advance?

Thai visas are valid for 3 months from the date of issue.
Single entry visa are much cheaper than mulitple entry. Single entry should be free, although Birmingham (UK) charge a 15 pound admin fee (not sure who else charges that). A double mulitple entry is normal price at 56.
You could get a single entry to enter Thailand (you need that OR an air ticket out of Thailand within 30 days), and then apply for another single entry in Cambodia or Vietnam. A bit of a hassle depending on how much time you have, but it would certainly be cheaper.

Thanks for your response Mike
How about this - if I get a 60-day single entry tourist visa before I go, can I then head out to Thailand in October, on arrival get a 30-day free visa, then use the 60-day tourist visa when I re-enter in early December? Or will Thai immigration automatically use my 60-day visa on arrival in October?

Yes you can do that too. Just ask the immigration officer not to stamp the tourist visa now, explain why if necessary.
I've done that several times, never had a problem.

You can do that, there is no problem! It is quite simple and is not complex procedure.
