When can I come back. How long can I stay. How often can I come back?

Recommended Posts

i know I have to go, and I will go.  I did not think about when I can come back, how many times I can come back, and how long I can stay, in a one year period.  I am only used to the long visa I was using for some years.  Now I must use tourist visa.  Will the toursist visa rules change with all the people that can not get the long visas and will be coming back on tourist visas.  Any news on this?

No changes to the rules for applying for tourist visas are expected.

Is it two per year or something like this? Can you get a 60 day visa and extend for 30 days, then leave Thailand for 3 months, then you can can come back?  Can I live 6 months of the year in Thailand with tourist visas and live 6 months of the year somewhere else?  I think this may be a popular consideration for people.

There are no written rules on how long you can stay on tourist visas.

You can get back to back single entry tourist visas without a problem.

Best to get a multiple entry tourist visa in your home country that allows unlimited 60 day entries for 6 months from the date of issue. You can get almost 9 months of total stay from it by doing an entry just before it expires and extending that 60 days for 30 days.

I remember something like this.  It was ok before.  Do you think this will change with the thousands of people going out of Thailand and coming back on the system you describe?

No and I don't think there will be thousands leaving. I think most be people will adjust to the changes.

A lot of people talking about not staying here anymore.  If they do these adjustments and stay, what are all of these changes for?  Maybe give more money to the Thai banking system? If the tourist visa rules stay the same, that's ok.  I can live 6 months Thailand and 6 months somewhere else, but it is difficult to chose the other place.  I ask this question on a different forum.

Wisely invest and the Thai Banking system pays the investor.

I just input money into the Thai economy, not so much the  Thai bank system, over several years.  They will not miss me or my money.  I know that and it's fine.  I must now look at living somewhere other than Thailand.  I did not think to ask about the rules for coming back sometimes, so now I ask.  Ubonjoe says not many will leave and come back using tourist visas.  The time will tell for this.   I think if many leave and come back on tourist visas that will be the next visa rule change.

Just head to Philippines, no visa hassles <deleted>...

I know I will be going somewhere. Can you tell me some places in the Philippines?  Not a big city.  Not the jungle.  A beach would be nice but I will consider any place.

This astonds me. "You can get back to back setv without a problem" Does that mean guaranteed entry at bkk airports?

You serious. Why so many threads and posts indicating opposite experience. ....one comes to mind chap with setv from Saigon refused entry DM. Flown back to Saigon. Refused entry. They flown to UK.

Many others.

I read about the young people having this tourist visa problem.  I think now many older people will be in this same group as the younger people and maybe they change the rule again to stop the many people using the tourist visas to stay here each year.

Nothing is going to prevent a person from using a tourist visa for a holiday and then returning home.
