Visa exempt entry to Thailand immediately following expiry of O-A visa extension

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I will encounter any problems if I exit Thailand a day or two before my retirement extension expires in August 2019 and then fly back to Thailand after my extension has expired hoping to enter on a visa exempt (30days) stamp.

I have been using the O-A visa and retirement extensions for the last 5 years. My aim is to extend my stay beyond expiry of my retirement extension on 17 August for 30 days before I fly back to the UK.

 

Hope I have sufficiently explained what I am after, just wondering if Thai Immigration will quiz me or somehow refuse me entry. I have never had an overstay or as far as I am aware any reason to be refused entry.

 

Thanks in advance for useful responses.

Did you consider border crossing. You won't have trouble with border. When you say "fly back" I assume from Asian country?. If so just fly to somewhere like udon and bounce at border. 30 day visa exempt and extend if required. Another 30.

No problem to get a 30 day visa exempt entry by air or land after being being on extension of stay.

Previous longstay extensions or visas  have no effect on doing a visa exempt entry.

Thank you both Ubonjoe and DrJack54. I live in Hua hin, so was thinking of just jumping on an AirAsia flight to Kuala Lumpur and staying there for a couple of nights and then returning to get a 30 day visa exempt entry.

 

Thanks again

No problem to do it that way.

How about a few days in Bali?
