To many entries and denied entry

Recommended Posts

As already pointed out, trying to enter Thailand with a history, on visa exempt, was asking for trouble. You might of got through with a visa, but doing so through a Bkk airport would of been risky too.

 

An Elite visa is your only safe option, but at 48 that's a lot of money for something you only really need for 1/2 years.

Other than that, it's entry by land borders until you're 50.

OP

exactly what entries you had fro sep 2018 to oct 2019 and in what order, you only get 2 land border voa's .

Did you have extensions on all entries, was it really only 1 setv ?

You likely get in in jan 2020 as the 180 day stay they assess you on refreshes 1st jan every year although exact visa history from your previous rather recent 13months mainly in thailand stay and luck on day going play on final outcome .
Reality is no one really knows exact answers as thai IO's at the airports and even some borders being very awkward at times and not following any exact rules or pattern .

This 180 days that people are quoting isn't real.  It's not part of immigration law,  and therefore, most definitely, does not refresh at the start of a calender year.  

It is real. It may not be law or regulation, but it’s the unofficial line in the sand IO’s use.

 

It not being law or regulation means it’s not a set limit and you can’t be denied entry specifically for exceeding that time, but they can still deny entry for another qualifying reason.

180 days in a year and refreshing in January is exactly what I was told. 

I'm sure you were told that,  and maybe that's the criteria that particular IO is using,  but it's most definitely not the norm. 

 

You only have to read the multitude of denial threads over the last few months to know that nobodys getting a clean slate come Jan 1.

If the IO thinks you've spent too much time in Thailand recently on tourist/ed visa's and/or visa exemptions, then you're done.  What exactly constitutes too much time is completely at the discretion of the IO. 

 

The 2 land border visa exemption runs per year refresh on Jan 1, as that is part of immigration law. 

180 days is referenced in the immigration act and been posted in image and links on here more than once.

You want quote me fully not just on the one line .

 

Also in Thailand rules are not totally important as no one follows them to a T and you don't get far quoting rules, what important is keeping track of IO trends .

Current trend is 180 days in 1yr (jan 1st to dec 31st) . 180 days and repeat almost back to back use of voa and setv and extensions is parameters they using .
