    Whoops. Sorry about the blank message.

    What i wanted to ask is:

    I am going to SE Asia for 4 months in total. I fly into Bangkok and am going up to Chiang Mai then crossing into Laos to Vietnam to Cambodia then crossing into Thailand again. From here i would then travel through Thailand to Malaysia and return to Thailand to fly home.

    Would i need to get a Multiple Entry visa for this or could i just get a new visa each time i enter Thailand again?

    I would enter 3 times each for less than 30 days. I have read the Thai embassy website and think that I don't need a special visa before i leave but would just like some clarification on this.

    Hi James,

    Without knowing your nationality, it's a bit of a guessing game, but, generally speaking , as long as each entry is for less than 30 days -- so you're looking at less than 90 days in total across the four month period, then you should be fine.
