Thai Tourist Visas Are Free.......

Posted by JamieG on 6/8/2010 at 17:29

Hi Guys, I thought I would just post this for anyone wondering. I am in the UK and this morning recieved my visa stamped passport back from the Thai Consulate allowing me 3 entries of upto 60 days! It cost all of £8 for the postage and took 48 hours. They are currently free, and if you are visited SEA like me, and think you will be in and out of Thailand more than once, it may be worth getting this before you leave, as not only will it make customs super easy but you get double the time of ...

Vietnam e-Visa/ Visa on Arrival

Posted by tayls on 16/4/2009 at 23:09

I have found some sites offering Visa pre-approval. For US$21.95 you get a pre-approval letter and then present this letter and pay US$25 when you get to Vietnam for a Visa on Arrival. It seems much easier and also cheaper to do this than sending off your passport to the Vietnam embassy. Has anyone used such a service and does it work? Any recommendations on a website to use? ...

Help/advice on ticket

Posted by austintexas512 on 3/8/2010 at 23:40

So I am planning to get a one-way ticket to BKK, but I have been told the airline might not let me on the flight without a visa or some sort of onward travel.. If I apply for a Thailand Visa before I leave so they let me on the flight, will the 30 or 60 days start counting down when I get there? Will it "pause" if I cross over into Cambodia? I am very confused on how this works, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! ...

Vietnam Visa

Posted by karyn on 8/7/2006 at 22:14

Hi again! I read through a couple of strings about visa for Vietnam; however, I just want to make sure of a couple of things. Does the visa run out from the date you apply for it or can you request a start date? Can a visa be issued in the same day ~ getting there in the morning, going back in the late afternoon? Is there a map/easy directions to get to the Embassy in Bangkok on the site? Is the service reliable in the sense the visa is ready when they say or is it often ready later? THA ...

Thai Visa-Free 30 Days

Posted by LaraP on 1/8/2010 at 03:10

Hey, So, just a quick question. It seems like the whole buy a cheap AirAsia plane ticket is the best way to enter without any problems (or rather to board the plane to Bangkok in the first place). Does it matter if you get a cheap flight sooner than the actual date you intend to leave? Do they just give you 30 days no matter what or would they only give me the amount of time until the flight? Thanks! ...

Hi I was really hoping someone could help me out! I am drowning in Visa applications.. Basically I am flying into Vietnam first so I am organizing my Visa from Australia. I'm reading mixed reports that once it is issued the 30 days begins.. but does 'issued' mean when it passes through the embassy or when you are actually stamped in on arrival? I leave in 2 months so should I wait to get it processed? Also from Vietnam I will be traveling (over land) to Cambodia, and Visa's are available on ar ...

Otherwise I will need to get my China Visa whilst in Hanoi (where I currently am) but this seems to take minimum of 4 day, or risk backtracking if I cant get visa in Lao Cai. any help would be really appreciated. thankyou. ...

Free Thai Tourist Visas

Posted by nicolasmith83 on 6/4/2010 at 15:47

Does anyone know if it's still possible to get a free TOURIST visa for Thailand (i.e. one that gives you 60days, not the visas on arrival that only give 15/30 days for overland/flight entry)? And if so, at the Embassy in Ho Chi Minh City? I read they were available until April 2010. If not, how much will it cost a UK passport holder to buy a Thai Tourist Visa in Saigon? ...
