Thai Visa

Posted by ttsteve on 2/5/2012 at 08:03

I am a US citizen, flying into Vietnam (have my visa already) then traveling by land through Cambodia and eventually into Thailand. I will be in Thailand from June 12 until July 1. I understand that because I'm entering Thailand by land I am only getting 15 days.

Is there an Embassy in Cambodia that I can get a 30 day tourist visa? What type of visa will I need for this 18-19 day stay in Thailand?

I thought tourist visas are for 2 months?
Where is the consulate in Sihanoukville? The Embassy in Phnom Penh is quite a long way out of the centre not so far from the Russian market.

TTSteve,
I think all you need is an extension, however that will cost 1,900 Baht. This is what the US Embassy in Bangkok says:

Only place you can get a Thai tourist visa in Cambodia is the Thai embassy in Phnom Penh (takes two days). This would get you a 60-day entry. However it's probably more efficient in your case to just get the 15-day visa-exempt entry (by land) then go to the nearest Immigration office and get a 7-day extension for 1900 baht. Either that or fly cheap (AirAsia.com) from Phnom Penh to Bangkok then you'll get 30 days visa-exempt (by air).
