Returning to Thailand from Cambodia, and I lost my yellow fever certificate

Posted by Fixman on 20/8/2011 at 19:30

I'm an Argentine citizen, and while I can enter Thailand without a Visa, I need to have had the yellow fever vaccine before coming to the country. I entered Thailand with that certificate, and after a few weeks I left it and went to Cambodia. Now I was planning on staying an extra day in Bangkok, but I lost my certificate. Does anyone know if this will be a problem, even through I have a Thailand stamp already on my passport? ...

Bad info about crossing from Vietnam into Cambodia with Vietnamese motorbike?

Posted by brand0n on 27/6/2011 at 04:53

I have heard that it is pretty hassle-free to cross into Cambodia with a Vietnamese motorbike, but one response that I got from a rental shop in Hanoi has me a bit worried: "According to me ride up through Cambodia from Vn side it is not sensible idea because Vietnamese custom not accept to ride any motorbike(even bike in your own name) to Cambodia if the bike don’t have a permit road work for crossing border. it make by ministry of communications and transport." We are planning ...

Was planning on just using whatever transport i can find while out there and making only a couple of flights if possible. Will this be a major issue at the crossings?? Any advice?? Thanks ...

thai tourist visa

Posted by ambersaffron on 5/8/2011 at 11:08

I have a couple of questions about the thai tourist visa. Please forgive me if these have been answered already, I've done some searching but couldn't find the answers. Can you get the Thai tourist visa in Thailand? Is it possible to get a multiple entry Thai tourist visa? Where can you get an extension for your thai tourist visa? Does it have to be at an embassy or consulate, or can a guesthouse or travel agent do it? To apply for a Thai tourist visa before arriving in SE Asia, do you need to ...

hi guys, this is my first post so go easy on me! I hold a UK passport, and am going travelling around south east asia in august for 7 months. At the moment, I'm considering going straight from SEasia to australia to work for a year or two, rather than getting on my return flight to england and having to fly back at some point.

SEasia to Australia

Posted by joe_leviente on 24/6/2011 at 17:41

hi guys, I'm going to be backpacking around SEasia for 7 months (aug-march) then getting a flight to Australia, where I'll be spending 1-2 years on a working holiday visa. At the moment I'm looking at the flight between Asia and Australia, does anyone have any advice regarding the cheapest/easiest way to do it? I'm thinking Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane would be a possibility, anyone know any better? Do you reckon I should book the ticket way in advance, or will the prices not go up too much if I ...

Postal Application for Vietnamese Visa from London

Posted by luckysmartie on 10/7/2011 at 23:34

Hi everyone, first post on here, although I've been reading (and taking advice!) for some time [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img] I'm just about to make a postal application for a Vietnamese visa from the London embassy. I've done this for a Russian visa a couple of times and have always sent a Special Delivery envelope with the application, however there has never been a postal charge if you do this. The Vietnamese embassy have told me to send an SAE in addition to paying extra for postage (£8 ). D ...

Anyone entered Thailand overland recently?

Posted by christay2009 on 27/7/2011 at 22:04

Yes, another question on Thai visa exemptions... Has anyone crossed into Thailand overland recently and been given the 15 day exemption? I am debating my trip right now but it will almost certainly end up with me crossing into Laos from Thailand then back into Thailand. I called the UK Thai consulate recently (about something else) and they bashed me over the head with how I must have onward travel proof for an exemption if I cross overland (and Air) into Thailand. I did not even mention doi ...

Crossing from Thailand to Laos via Chiang Khong - Huay Xai

Posted by donnaansell on 1/10/2007 at 20:13

I will be travelling from Thailand to Laos in November and would like to cross overland via Chiang Khong-Huay Xai, so that I can do the 2 day slow boat trip to Luang Prabang. I was just wondering if they issue visa's on arrival and how much it costs? I've been on a few websites and they all seem to have different answers - some say you need to get it in advance for $50 in Chiang Khong and some say visa on arrival. also some say 15 day and some say 30, so I'm a bit confused!! ...

Thai Visa Exemption

Posted by creasetofu on 25/6/2011 at 03:33

Hi, I am heading to Thailand for my honeymoon in September and was looking at Visas. I know I am entitled to the Visa Exemption as i have a UK Passport and am staying less than 30 days. However, my question is regarding the proof of finances. Is it 10,000 or 20,000 Baht per person? I have read both! and how do you prove it? cash? travellers cheques? bank statement? Also, has anyone actually been asked to prove it or is it just a legality? Thanks!!!! ...

Proof of Onward Flight for Camb/Laos VIs

Posted by jendo on 21/8/2009 at 06:00

jendo I'm assuming you wanted to know whether when you enter these nations, the border/immigration people want to see 'evidence' of a 'booked' outward journey. My experience is no. It appears they leave that decision to you. And, if you overstay your time, you must pay a fine. Cheers ...

I have read in a few places that a one-month Laos visa may be changed to one week if you bring in a motorbike. Here in particular: Can anyone confirm or dispel this?

Walking from departures to arrival for a Thai land 15 exemption

Posted by Sethinthebox on 24/6/2011 at 20:20

I'm pretty sure that this isn't posted already but correct me if I'm wrong. I will be in Loei province (Dan Sai more specifically) for a few days just before my 15 day visa exemption expires. I was hoping to do a visa run, departing Thailand at either Chiang Khan or Muang Nong Khai. I do not have a Lao visa currently, and I would prefer not to get one just yet. Is it possible to just walk out of the "departures" office of Thailand, turn around and come back into the country again? W ...

Thailand: A few days overstay = Just pay the 500 thb/day fine and that's that?

Posted by kristoffer_zaar on 13/11/2010 at 21:37

The story... I'm off for a short trip to Thailand and Cambodia and I don't want to waste too much time on transport and/or VISA applications. The trip is about three weeks in total (24 days i think). I arrive by plane in BKK Dec 17, and have a ticket out on Jan 9, also from BKK. Now when I realised (thanks to this awesome forum) that the new Visa-on-arrival rules just gave you 15 days when arriving overland my plan was sort of messed up. The original plan was to fly from BKK to Cambodia (PP o ...

Thai Visa - booking onward travel within 30-day period

Posted by gingersmith869 on 13/6/2011 at 21:39

Hi everyone, I am currently getting mixed messages about not needing a Thai Tourist Visa if I am planning on staying in the country for less than 30 days, and wondered if somebody in the know could help? I arrive in Thailand on Aug 21st 2011 and plan to move on to Laos after 3 weeks via the overland crossing at Vientianne. I am yet to book any transportation so have no confirmed outward travel dates. Do I need to present documentation to show I intend to leave the country within 30 days in ord ...

Border Crossings on Motorbikes....advice needed

Posted by moomin1802 on 28/5/2011 at 19:06

We are currently in Siem Reap, Cambodia and own a Minsk (with vietnamese plates and papers) and a dirt bike (with cambodian plates no papers). We are planning on heading across the border into Laos at Dong Kralor then spend 1 month in Lao before crossing into Thailand on the same bikes (cross at either the Nong Khai friendship bridge or at Chaing Khong/Huay Xai in the north) Firstly, is this possible as one of the bikes has no papers? Also, we have heard stories on various forums about having ...

Avoid Train From Nong Khai To Thalang!!!

Posted by Naturepunk324 on 25/5/2011 at 09:57

This place is a scam. 1. The worker behind the counter lied to me and told me the train went all the way to Veintaine when, in reality, it goes just over teh bridge where it dumps you at imagration. About 20-30 Baht for a 5 minute train ride (Which I know might not sound like a lot of money when you compare it everything back home, but as a long term budget traveler who had just paid 250 to go all the way from Bangkok (612 Km's and a 12 hour trip) I was a pit pissed. 2. Even though it was almost ...
