border crossing by bicycle

Posted by mumpat on 16/11/2015 at 04:21

I know that being holder of a Belgian passport I'm granted a visa-free entry to Malaysia for 90 days.

But, as I am travelling by bike I will cross the Thailand-Malaysia border over land. Last year I had a bad experience at the Laos-Thailand border where I received a visum for only 15 days because I arrived in Thailand over land (when you arrive by plane you receive 30 days). So, I want to know if I cross the border over land I will get the same Visum on Arrival (90 days) as someone who arrives in Malaysia by plane.

Any other suggestions about the best border-crossing Thai-Malaysia by bike are welcome

Yes, visa-exempt entry to Thailand is 30 days by air 15 days by land for qualified nationalities.
Malaysia doesn't distinguish between air or land arrival. You'll still get the usual 90 days.
