First off this is the best website!
I just have a question on the Thai Visa situation which I cant seem to find answers for.
I am going to apply for a thai tourist visa with 3 entries I think as im there from sept until jan.
From what I can see I have to leave every 60 days which is fine as Im planning to go to cambodia and laos. I was planning on going to cambodia first off and then laos later on.
Will my next 60 days be activated if I travel overland though?
Also will it make a difference to my next 60 days if during that time I travel to Laos?
thanks in advance for any advice!!
Regardless of how you arrive by land, sea or air you will be able to activate your 60 day visa but the moment you leave Thailand that visa will be cancelled regardless of how little of the 60 days you have used.To avoid a fine remember that the day you arrive and the day you leave count within that 60 days so really you are only getting 58 complete days.If you have 3 entries you basically have 3 visas.
Doesn't matter if you leave Thailand and return in 1 hour, 1 day, or 1 month. As long as the visa is still valid (see the "Enter Before" date) you still get 60 days per entry (by air or land border) and can extend each entry 30 more days at any Thai Immigration office if desired. Try to plan your side-trips to get the most out of each of the three Thailand entries - quite simple.
You can extend a tourist visa 30 days 1 time per each entry. So if you have a triple-entry visa you'll have three possible entries with one extension per each. In other words you cannot extend more than once per entry. Make sense?
