    Hello.

    I'm in Thailand now and I've a 30days visa, but I want to stay 75days.

    So, how many times can I cross the border by land? 3 times is possible?

    thank you.

    No set/enforced limit, although Immigration officers can at their discretion give you less than the 15 days (visa exempt land entry) if they think you're a trouble-maker. Most appropriate thing to do if you want to stay 75 days is get a proper tourist visa (at the Thai consulate in Vientiane, Penang, Phnom Penh, etc)

    Just a quick question, does this mean you can re-enter thailand as many times as you want or have I misunderstood?

    Yes it does,within reason.There used to be a limit on the number of days within a certain time period that you could spend in Thailand by using this method-commonly referred to as "Visa runs" As you now only get 15 days if you enter Thailand via a land border,this rule has been abolished,and in theory you can do it as many times as you wish,but,as has been said earlier,it's a lot easier and cheaper to get a proper tourist visa in the first place.
