Visa For A Visitor From UK

Posted by chrisb4 on 28/5/2012 at 10:38

Hello everyone, a brief question. I am visiting Thailand for two months in a few weeks. I understand that, as a visitor from the UK, I am entitled to the first 30 days of my visit without needing a visa. Is this correct?
Also, as I will be there longer than 30 days I will need to get one for the remaining time. Is this easy to do once inside Thailand, or is it easier to get a 90 day tourist visa before I arrive?

if you want longer than 30 days - sort it with a Thai Embassy in your own country before you leave

What you get on arrival without a visa is a 30-day visa exemption (30 days by air arrival, 15 days by land arrival). You cannot get another one (or a proper visa for that matter) inside Thailand. In your case get a tourist visa in advance in the UK. The easiest is via the Thai consulate in Hull by mail.

This will get you a 60-day entry which can be extended 30 days longer at any Thai immigration office for 1900 baht.
