Thailand, away, and then back again - what visa do I need/will I be allowed in?
5th May, 2011
I know that there are ton of threads asking this question but I can't find any that apply to my specific case.
I live in England. I am flying to Thailand from Nepal on June 29th. I want to stay there for around 21 days. I will then go travelling in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, and return to Thailand for a few days just to get my flight back home from Bangkok on August 19th. At first I thought I would be OK with a visa exemption, as I am there for under 30 days, and then when re-arriving by land for under 15 days - but then I read that I will not be allowed in to the country by my airline if I do not have a visa or a flight booked to go out of the country within 30 days - so am I required to get a visa?
This is very confusing to me so thank you very much for any replies!

I booked my flights for 32 days in SE Asia, and I'm pretty much following your route. When booking the travel agent at STA Travel told us that we would only need the free 30 day by air then further 15 days by land visa. She didn't mention anything about needing an on going flight within the time, so I hope not!

At least 32
it's all good. If you leave England and they tell you there that you actually need the visa, just tell them that you get one at the airport in thailand for 30 days and that you will be travelling by land to another country. I've never had any problems with that in the last 3,5 years.
