    Hi All,


    Just 3 more weeks before we take off and I would like to get something confirmed.

    We will be arriving in Bangkok, going trough customs, flying to HCMC on the same day and then go overland back to BKK to fly back home.

    Can anyone see if I have made a mistake on the VISA thingies

    Arrive BKK: Get the 30 Day Free VISA at customs - nothing to be done upfront - do I need a picture?

    Fly to HCMC on the same day of arrival in BBK: VISA for Vietnam arranged in Brussels, Belgium

    Cross the border to Cambodja: get the VISA at the border - nothing to be done upfront - just make sure I have a picture of myself

    Cross the border to Thailand over land: get a new VISA or will the initial one still be valid??

    Thanks,

    Lawoat

    Sounds OK except the 30 days you get at the airport is NOT a visa it's a visa exemption.(I presume your nationality entitles you to it)
    If you return to Thailand via a land border you will only get 14 days of visa exemption.So if you plan to leave Thailand within 14 days no problem.
