Do I need THB 20 000.- when travelling on a transit visa?

Recommended Posts

Do I need THB 20 000.- when traveling to Thailand on a transit visa? Or is it THB 10 000.-? I have read both so I am confused.

Also I wonder if this is for Tourist visa or both Transit visa as well?

Thanks! Sorry I can not read Thai. Is there an english version?

Anyway, you say 10 000, thanks for that information.

It is 10K and can be the equivalent in a foreign currency.

Why does this seem to be such a big problem for some on here. Surely one is at least going to spend that amount of money while in Thailand...just stuff it in your pocket and be on your way.

  Really, talk about making mountains out of molehills?

No I guess you don't understand it is not about the amount or how much you will spend

in Thailand some people just don't like to carry cash

Thanks!

@Jackdd, sadly, I can't read enough Thai to understand the document you posted. Does it specifically mention visa exempt? Because many people seem to believe you now need 20,000 baht to enter on visa exempt.

My impression is that the shorter periods of stay — visa exempt, VOA and transit visa — are still 10,000 baht as they always were. Just the tourist and other longer-stay visas require 20,000.

What's funny is that I rarely spend that much cash in a month.

I pay with mobile phone or cc for most everything. Cash is like so Thailand 3.0

It's written like this. Afaik this document is the most recent version regarding immigration act section 12.9.

Jackdd, Very nice. Thank you very much!

And is the tourist visa requiring 20 000 THB as billp believes above? Maybe I will travel on a tourist visa soon and then it is nice to have the correct amount of money in the pocket. Normally I travel on transit visa. It would be nice to sort this out once and for all. Or at least until they change the rules 🙂

Yes. 20K is the amount if entering with a tourist or other class of visa.

I have never been asked to shove any amount when arrive Thailand.It seems to depend on ur nasjonality.Many indians have been rejected.So far i never heard that scandinavians been asked for cash.

Im Norwegian and have about 65 arrivals to Thailand.Anyway i allways have NOK in my wallet just in case.
