"Void without prejudice" stamp in Phnom Penh for second SETV—best available options?

Recommended Posts

(I was banned by mistake and was told by TVF staff to repost my thread since they couldn't reopen the previous one.)

 

I went to Phnom Penh to get a second SETV. My history is only one SETV obtained from my home country, and no VE.

 

I provided a ticket to outside the country, proof of funds and all other documentation. I received a "Void without prejudice" stamp. Also, above it there is another stamp saying "Denied Applicant has entered Thailand frequently and for long durations using tourist visas" (I know, right).

 

I have an idea of some of the options I have, but am especially worried about the stamps. I'm a genuine tourist and have the funds to just relax, read and so on, and not have to work for multiple months (I was even offered to teach English multiple times, but refused and said I couldn't work with a tourist visa). I was planning on finding a job and a good school to teach long-term. All my belongings are in Thailand.

 

Right now I was thinking of doing a VE. Doing it at Poipet is a bad idea, so I bought a plane ticket to Bangkok via Don Meuang (will have funds, ticket outside the country). However, from reading threads, I'm now more worried about the void and denied stamp. I only have one SETV, so a thoughtful IO might let me in, seeing that I was really unlucky in Phnom Penh. Still risky, though.

 

What would be my best options? How bad are the stamps? Advice/suggestions (I'm all ears)?

Yes. 3 months using only the SETV. No other history.

So the embassy denied your 2nd SETV application? And stamped your old SETV denied w/o prejudice? Or did you get the second SETV and it was denied at the border?

Could you please post a picture of the stamps?

After I got my passport at the embassy, I had a 2nd SETV sticker, with a "Void without prejudice" on it, and a "Denied Applicant has entered Thailand frequently..." stamped over the SETV sticker.

Fly Phnom Penh to Vientiane direct. Enter visa exempt at Nong Khai. No problem.

Nah. Not buying it. Same format, same way of talking like endless other "rejection reports".

 

Sorry about that.

What i struggle with a little is you said you have only had 1 visa and your record was clean.

 

Did you only have 1 visa in your new passport? how and why would consulate state you entered Thailand too many times when according to you it was only once

I’m as confused as you are.
