Thai VISA... HELP!!

Posted by rachel0621 on 25/11/2009 at 13:09

Hi, We need help with our VISA! We arrived in Phuket on the 1st Nov and had a 30 day visa granted until the 30th Nov. We left on the 11th nov for vietnam and now planning on going back on the 1st Dec for a few days then travelleling overland to Laos for a few weeks, then back down to Thailand again on the 23rd of December until we fly out on the 17th Jan.

Nan overland to Luang Prabang

Posted by bellatrx on 29/10/2009 at 15:27

Any updates on this route overland? We have Lao visas already, but are a bit daunted by the lack of information on how to travel from Nan to Luang Prabang (or even whether it's possible). Does anyone know what the parts of the journey are, and about how long it'd take? Has anyone done it? Thanks! ...

Visa on arrival letter...Ho Chi Min airport

Posted by Carolynimini on 20/11/2009 at 09:33

Any one use a website to obtain a "VISA on arrival letter" Does this info from vntraveler.com look legit? "Thanks to the open travel policy of Vietnam, visitors now can apply for a so-called visa on arrival (VOA). Travellers can apply for their entry visa online and pick up their visas at Vietnam international airports. After checking through travel forums to find out a good service provider for this type of visa, we found My Vietnam Visa a reliable agent to start with. It is being recomm ...

I am flying in to Bangkok with BA on 2 December and my onward flight to Hong Kong is on the 17 March. I intend to leave Thailand at Chiang Khong after around 20 days so within the visa exemption period. However i have heard stories of people being refused entry or not being allowed to board BA flights without a return or onward flight within those 30 days. Does this still happen a ...

Border cross f/Msian @ HCMC-PP & Btmbng-BKK

Posted by cuffedbloke on 3/11/2009 at 23:00

Hi, I will be taking a bus from HCMC to Phnom Penh and then later from Battambang to Bangkok. I hold a Malaysian passport. As far as I know (for 30 days stay or less) I don't need a visa, however I'd like to be sure since I've been reading so much about paying for visas at the borders. And how could I avoid the I-get-visa-for-you-quicker scam at the border, or perhaps I'm just paranoid? Lastly, does it make sense to take a boat to the Thai border from Battambang and then switch to ...

Hey all, I have a 60 day single entry tourist visa for Thailand, and I fly into Bangkok on the 23rd. However, I was hoping to go to Laos for my first week there. Does anyone have any experience with how strict Thai immigration is on stamping existing Visas? My hope was they would just give me the 30 day visa exempt thing so I could use my tourist visa on reentry for my longer stay. Any insight? ...
