90 Border run Savanakhet

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am thinking about doing a Border run over friendship bridge 2 to Savanakhet.

I am on a 1 year multi entry non-o, just wondering if there will be a problem doing a same day border run there.

Thanks in advance

Regards Geordie

No problem.

 

Ensure you have $ in excellent condition if you wish to pay for your Laos visa in U.S. $. Otherwise, it is pay in Baht and pay around 400 Baht more in equivalent currency.

hi. I did my NON-O 90 days 2 months ago. All perfect.

 

all you will spend for 50 baht going to laos 50 baht for coming back for the bridge bus. Plus Laos visa which is max 1600 baht.

 

if your going by your own car, you can park really next to the border. Its inside the border area. Theres also another private parking area which is 250 baht per day.

 

if your going by taxi.. it should be around 200 baht from the bus station. tuk tuk will probably ask the same.

 

Just be nice to the guys who will ask you to cross border by their car (200 baht). And they will say its faster than bus. Personally i dont know its true or not. Because i think they also must do some paper work for the car so it will take some time too. And you cant say hey forget about it after your in the care already. Be nice because you leave your car where they walk around 😉 Just say ohh thanks i dont want my friend is waiting for me. 🙂

 

PS: just in case please come back to post after your trip and let us know all ok or not.

Hope someone can help me out. . Want to traveling in on a tourist visa. Can go to immigration and get a retirement visa before the 30 day ends? Possible?

There is no 30 day tourist visa. I you mean a 30 day visa exempt visa entry.

You can apply for a 90 day non immigrant visa (category O) entry based upon qualifying for an extension of stay based upon retirement.

General requirements are here (click Eng at the top of the page change the language). https://www.immigration.go.th/content/service_80

During the last 30 days of the 90 day entry you can apply for a one year extension of stay based upon retirement by showing the same financial requirements needed for the visa.

Have you had 800,000 baht in the bank for 2 or 3 months

( 2 or 3 depends on office rules) or recorded income of 65,000 a month transferred into Thailand.

Are you over 50?

what visa do you want to get. For me NON-O (marriage)

= 2 photo

= Visa form

= 5000 baht for multi non-o

= Copy first page of your passport 

= Copy of your wife's ID and she sign it

= Copy of wife's house paper her sign

= Copy and your marriage certificate (copy for the embassy / real for them to check.)

thats all

Looking into this as a possible "plan C." Is is possible to fly from BKK to Savanakhet? I'd prefer to avoid van travel if possible.
