Since I will already have passed through M ...

Extension of stay - Thailand

Posted by spork on 21/12/2009 at 00:35

Getting out of Thailand is going to take longer than I'd planned, so I'm gonna end up overstaying by a couple days. And I'd rather not have the overstay stamp in my passport if I can help it. But the only information I can find is about extending a tourist visa. What if you had no visa to begin with? What is the process of ...
