Im planning on spending 7 weeks in Thailand
14th Aug until 30th Sep
Whats my best option?
do i just apply for a single entry tourist 60 day visa from the Thai Consulate in Hull if i post them my passport
i know its free if i fly in for 30 days but i would have to leave and fly back in to get a further 30days, so if i pay 25quid i should get a 60 day stamp before i leave the uk? Right?
cant find the info!
Thanks in advance!

Yep, the Hull consulate is your baby http://www.thaiconsul-uk.com They do single/double/triple entry tourist visas so just plan how many times you want to re/enter Thailand. This will also clear the way with airlines requiring either a visa or proof of onward air ticket within 30 days (randomly enforced). Just a technicality, you will get a 60-day entry on arrival (not before you leave the UK) which can be extended 30 days at immigration for 1900 baht, but each entry expires if/when you leave (side-trip to Laos, Cambodia, etc.)

Like everyone said, get the 60 day single entry, I'll be doing that my next visit as I'm not sure how long I'll stay... maybe only 40 - but I want the flexibility.

I have been talking to a few people about a similar situation and it seems a lot of people don't know you only get 15 days if you enter Thailand without a visa.
So if you leave Thailand before your visa and come back in via road make sure you have less than 15 days left.
