    Hi, I am going to Thailand for just under thirty days on the 8th of july, however the flights are flexible and depending on money i may want to stay another week.

    is there any way i can get a visa for the extra week when over there? or would i be able to pay a fine at the airport?

    many thanks

    Options... you can:

    1. Buy a two month tourist visa prior to departure in your own country. Saves any hassle.

    2. Extend your free entry stamp for 7 days at any immigration office ... 1900B and it involves getting to an immigration office (which may be inconvenient and/or fairly expensive depending on where you are) and queuing.

    3. Pay the fine at the airport ...500B per day overstay. Not sure if it's still the case but the first day's overstay used to be waived. If you have 2 days overstay or more you have to pay the first day too. The problem with overstaying is that you risk arrest if you get caught before you actually reach the airport.
