Mai Sai visa run crackdown

Posted by somtam2000 on 10/5/2014 at 01:56 admin

Reports today of people doing back to back visa runs to Mai Sai crossing are being denied exit from Thailand. Seems aimed at people on the 15- and 30-day visa free entries.

Reasons are unclear. Will update when I find out more.
