How long will you stay in Thailand when you re-enter for your flight home? If it's less than 30 days, you probably don't need to get any visas for Thailand at all, but it depends on your nationality. This page breaks down which nationalities get free 30-day visa-exempt stays.

Hi, I'm from the u.s. when I re enter it will be less then 30 days. However, when I first arrive I'm two to three weeks there before I depart to loas. Do I include the weeks I spent at that time as my 30 days when I re enter? I thinking of going to the Thialand embassy in Cambodia to get an extension on the 30 exempt visa. Thank you for the reply

You'll get 30 day visa-exempt stays for both entries. So you don't need to get a visa or anything.

US passport holders and those of about 50 other countries don't need a visa to enter Thailand. They are allowed to stay for up to 30 days and will get a stamp to this effect from immigration at the point of entry.

You can do this - officially - twice in one year..........

Furthermore you can extend you stay for a further 30 days by paying 1900 baht at any immigration office.

If rules for US citizens are same as for FR citizens then:

- For less than 30 days - no need any visa, just 30 days stamp for free.

- For more than 30 but less than 90 days - tourist visa (now can apply for multiple if apply in your home country)

- For more than 90 days - ED-Visa you need to find a school which provides you student status and the letter from MOI for the consulate. I can recommend this Language school on Koh Samui island - http://kstvs.com/edvisa/student-visa-application/
!!! If you stay in Thailand with ED-Visa you can go out of the country only if have a reason (meeting with a doctor for example)! And you can be outside of Thailand no more than 1 week!!!

O visa is a legal way to stay for 90 days or up to a year, but you need to ask your consulate what kind of O visas are available. You normally need to show money in a bank etc.

Ed visas are for those studying at a recognised school.
