Thailand: A few days overstay = Just pay the 500 thb/day fine and that's that?

Posted by kristoffer_zaar on 13/11/2010 at 21:37

The story... I'm off for a short trip to Thailand and Cambodia and I don't want to waste too much time on transport and/or VISA applications. The trip is about three weeks in total (24 days i think). I arrive by plane in BKK Dec 17, and have a ticket out on Jan 9, also from BKK. Now when I realised (thanks to this awesome forum) that the new Visa-on-arrival rules just gave you 15 days when arriving overland my plan was sort of messed up. The original plan was to fly from BKK to Cambodia (PP o ...

Thai Visa - booking onward travel within 30-day period

Posted by gingersmith869 on 13/6/2011 at 21:39

Hi everyone, I am currently getting mixed messages about not needing a Thai Tourist Visa if I am planning on staying in the country for less than 30 days, and wondered if somebody in the know could help? I arrive in Thailand on Aug 21st 2011 and plan to move on to Laos after 3 weeks via the overland crossing at Vientianne. I am yet to book any transportation so have no confirmed outward travel dates. Do I need to present documentation to show I intend to leave the country within 30 days in ord ...

Border Crossings on Motorbikes....advice needed

Posted by moomin1802 on 28/5/2011 at 19:06

We are currently in Siem Reap, Cambodia and own a Minsk (with vietnamese plates and papers) and a dirt bike (with cambodian plates no papers). We are planning on heading across the border into Laos at Dong Kralor then spend 1 month in Lao before crossing into Thailand on the same bikes (cross at either the Nong Khai friendship bridge or at Chaing Khong/Huay Xai in the north) Firstly, is this possible as one of the bikes has no papers? Also, we have heard stories on various forums about having ...

Avoid Train From Nong Khai To Thalang!!!

Posted by Naturepunk324 on 25/5/2011 at 09:57

This place is a scam. 1. The worker behind the counter lied to me and told me the train went all the way to Veintaine when, in reality, it goes just over teh bridge where it dumps you at imagration. About 20-30 Baht for a 5 minute train ride (Which I know might not sound like a lot of money when you compare it everything back home, but as a long term budget traveler who had just paid 250 to go all the way from Bangkok (612 Km's and a 12 hour trip) I was a pit pissed. 2. Even though it was almost ...

Crossing into Thailand by land - Visa extension

Posted by flexo_24 on 12/5/2011 at 13:05

Hi guys, So, a pretty simple question, and one that I'm a bit emabrassed to be asking on this sort of forum as I'm sure the answer is out there, but I've been trawling the internet and travelfish for hours now and can't find the answer. So apologies if this is a really easy question to answer. I'm hoping to cycle from Singapore all the way up to the Thai border where I'll get a 15 Day Visa (as I'm entering on land) so then I have 15 days to get an extension on the visa. The question is just wh ...

Border crossing at Poipet

Posted by jgnitt on 9/5/2011 at 20:23

My friend and I are currently in Phnom Penh and going on to Siem Reap tomorrow. From there we were planning on heading to Bangkok on the 12th or 13th by a combination of taxi/bus and crossing the border at Poipet on foot. Can anyone let me know if we need to have a departure ticket from Thailand to do this? I've seen mixed reviews on the internet, and while we could fly in if absolutely necessary, it would really cut into our trip budget and we'd rather save the money traveling by land. Anyone w ...

Indonesia: Second 60 day visa

Posted by WonderingTsar on 28/4/2011 at 09:59

Hi Does anyone have an up-to-date position on getting a second 60 day tourist visa for Indonesia ? I have a 211 / 60 day tourist visa (UK passport) and I will want a second 60 days. I was planning on going to Singapore and applying for a fresh one. There are some old posts on another travel forum saying that you can get an agent (sponsor) to extend it twice in country for 30 days each, but you have to be in a big city. Is that still the case? How much does it cost it and is Bali big enoug ...

Haad Yao to Langkawi on Tigerline

Posted by WonderingTsar on 11/3/2011 at 10:08

Hi all The Tigerline ferry goes from various points in South West Thailand then Haat Yao (near trang) then Koh Lipe on to Langkawi Malaysia. I know that there is an im/emigration office on Lipe, but how does it work (stamp out of Thailand) if you are going direct from Haat Yao to Langkawi? I don't think that there is an immigration/emigration office in Haat Yao. Do Tigerline wait for you to go ashore at Lipe and get stamped out there, or is there a Thai office in Langkawi, or what? I want ...
