"I now face the reality that I may have to arrive in the simple visa on arrival, and then overstay for 5 days and pay a fine."

 

Once here you can simply go to the closest Thai Immigration Office and request an extension of stay.  Do it a few days before your visa on arrival expires, and be sure to take your return ticket and passport.

 

That way you won't have an overstay record to complicate your next trip.

 

 

I don't think this is even simple now. Don't you need a copy of your TM30 which might be difficult to get.

Gosh - the OP decides to father a son - in my view you are totally responsible for the welfare of the child - at any cost.

oops the OP does not seem to be able to fulfil that commitment as he cannot live full time in the Kingdom- shameful

I can't find anything for a E-visum on the website of the Thai embassy or consultate in the Netherlands. Only this form http://www.thaiembassy.org/hague/contents/files/services-20180315-093549-736429.pdf and go to the consultate before 13:00. Well I will see Friday what happens there.

Unless it has been recently put in place, the only country's using E visa at this time are China, France and the UK.

I have two friends, regular visitors, who made the decision after looking at what's requred that instead of spending £10,000 each in Thailand this year, they'd fly into Thailand for a short visit and spend the rest of their trip in neighbouring countries.

 

Now, as they fly in and out of BKK, they'll be counted as tourists twice; once on their initial arrival and once on their return!

 

So it's a win for the TAT arrivals figures, but a big loss to their expenditure numbers.

 

 

Another two? Crikey.

 

We must be up around 88 or so 'not coming anymores' now.

Link this thread the next time someone claims 'none of this effects genuine tourists'. 

Why don't people cal the Embassy and ask to speak with the Consul General or the Ambassador and complain to them that the system is not useer friendly. If this waas me- I would be on the phone constantly until they could give me an answer how toget the Visa.  If no one complains to the source- nothing will change.  At the very least- start writing letters addressd to the Thai Ambassador.
