One POSSIBLE solution it to fly CM via bkk airports on same ticket.

Another is to fly into nearby country and enter via border. Or somewhere like KL and if then enter los via air you would only be returned to KL if denied entry

So less chance of CM being rejected?   Should i use VE for this?

There was guy recently with long history and tried to obtain setv at Saigon. His returned pp had setv with void stamp. He has used his 2 border exempt.

Bit the bullet and flew into CM visa exempt. No problem. My guess he would of had zero chance at DM.

If you want to be confident of entering without problems:

  1. Get a tourist visa. That should be easy from one of the consulates in the UK.
  2. Fly Bangkok->Kuala Lumpur->Vientiane
  3. Enter via the Friendship Bridge at Nong Khai.
  4. You can then decide how best to travel to your final destination in Thailand (perhaps, flying from Udon Thani)

Of course, leaving Thailand at the end of your holiday can be a lot simpler.

Thanks, I already have used 2 SETV this year 3 within 9 months.

That might be one option to consider.  I have only used one VE via land border.

I uses to fly in via HKG at Xmas (from the UK) you have a night there (in a quiet corner), or they have a good arrival lounge outside at T2 to freshen up (i remember getting 180 day entry slip and perhaps only staying 12hrs or Less) may be butter under current conditions.. Then check in and travel on a different ticket to CNX, then it will be all booked in advance (perhaps a consideration to be covered by your UK travel insurance, with a good travel disruption add on). 

Similarly planned, HCMC sounds interesting and would be likely be quite good to stay for Xmas, not sure for visas for a stop over, going and on return, from CNX.

I take it spend xmas in UK.  Not even with a new passport?

A new passport will not be much help with immigration since they will link your old and new passports.

Fly into a nearby country and enter at a friendly land border and/or fly into friendler airport.

You might not have a problem entering at DMK or BKK but it depends upon the grup of immigration officers on duty at the time. Some officers would just stamp you in and not make a problem

I am not sure I understand your point. My suggestions are specifically because of your history, and designed to avoid the problems that history might cause. Are you saying that you have tried at one of the UK consulates, and they will not give you a tourist visa? If so, which consulate was that? Alternatively, are you under the impression that there is some kind of a limit entering Thailand with a visa per calendar year? If so, be aware that the only limit is the number of visa exempt entries by land.

Ho Chi Minh City is a fun place if you cant get into Thailand.

I didn't see much evidence of 'fun' when I was there.  Any recommendations?
