Hi - did a thai Visa run today over the Myanmar border at Mae Sai. Much to our great surprise, we were given until 12 December, not the 15 days we were expecting.
This happened with both me and my girlfriend, both UK passport holders. Was this an aberration, or have we missed something, or what? Everything we've read says 15 days, including signage at the border.
Also: we don't actually plan to use 13 days, just extending briefly to enjoy Loi Krathong. If we return next year as planned, will this limit our total stay to 30 days or will we have the potential to extend further, assuming the 90 days in 6 months scenario applies?
Had a very nice afternoon in Tachiliek, by the way, if you're there take lunch at valentines about 100 metres from the bridge, last exit on the roundabout.
The 90 days per six months thing has been dead for a few years now. And recently G7 nationalities including UK now qualify for 30 days visa-exempt re/entering by land or air.
