Thai Visa Exemption
5th January, 2011
I am heading to Thailand for my honeymoon in September and was looking at Visas. I know I am entitled to the Visa Exemption as i have a UK Passport and am staying less than 30 days.
However, my question is regarding the proof of finances. Is it 10,000 or 20,000 Baht per person? I have read both! and how do you prove it? cash? travellers cheques? bank statement?
Also, has anyone actually been asked to prove it or is it just a legality?

I've never been asked to show proof of finances, but I assumed they only asked for that if you don't have proof of onward travel anyway (even then I would think it unlikely).

Very unlikely they will ask to see this. It's just a formality rarely exercised. I was asked one time (been here 7 years now) and just flashed the inside of my wallet to reveal a few notes and was waved past. If they do ask then a recent ATM slip or any hard currency or bank statement would suffice. But anyway you won't likely get asked especially with your return ticket in hand.
