To many entries and denied entry

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.

It not so much you get a clean slate but you have far more chance of mitigating circumstances in your favour entering in january 2020 over december if had lot of time in thailand during 2019 but how beneficial will also depend on exact previous visa and extension use hence why I asked for OP's 2019 visa usage details .

It's a good idea to fly to Kuala Lumpur first . I think it's not necessary to fly to Vientiane unless your girlfriend live in northern Thailand. The only land border to avoid is Poipet. After your wedding you will be fine.

Go somewhere else, Cambodia is nice.

Plenty of girlfriends to be had there, and the beer is cheaper.

Had this before.... Phnom Pehn certainly isn't, Snooky isn't either. Is anywhere there worth considering?

It is not. 
 

The trend is that IO’s look at the last year +, not Jan to Dec.

Yes it is

the time span is mentioned in immigration act, look it up, it been linked to several times on this forum, one post in last couple months had good detail and links on it .

current trend is 180 day tourism in 1yr calendar year, This even been pressed to regional consulates via immigration .

I guarantee you it’s not. If you believe otherwise then post the section of the immigration act that states 180 days. But don’t waste too much time looking as you won’t find it.

Nope. If a serial tourist spent 179 days in the country and left on December 31. No IO would ignore those 179 days if the person re-entered in Jan 1 and the IO felt they’d spent too long in the country for tourism.

It's a known fact that either BKK airport will give you grief with your previous travel history.. 

 

If travelling with a visa and entering via CM, I think the likely hood of being refused entry should be greatly diminished, looking at previous reports. But too many VE there, and you'll likely to be refused entry.. 

 

Do not fly into Bangkok, even transit, because you may need to clear immig again to board your forwarding flight.. Fly to KL, and take a new seperate flight to CM.. If refused you'll ONLY be sent back to KL and not to LHR.. Your visa will still be active, just then change your strategy and re-enter via land either from Malaysia or fly and enter via Laos.. Keep your min. 20k Thb or eqiv on hand, invitation from GF or hotel booking, outgoing ticket 60/90 days to anywhere outside Thailand.. Could be Vientiane and then use a land entry to extend your stay further..

Why not have her apply for a Visa to get married in your country? Then you can start the marriage visa process with the Thai embassy in your country. Not sure if that makes sense or not just an idea.

It's 100% up to the immigration officer. I have 7 SE TV's in my passport and never had a problem. I'm leaving for Thailand again next week. Never had any issue before. Get a study visa mate.

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 .

Which Section of the Immigration Act contains this "180 days" that you cite? I have read the Thailand Immigration Act of 1979 from start to finish on multiple occasions, and can recall no such reference.

Your wrong and you can spend all the time you wish and will not find it. There was a regulation for about a year that was resinded in 2008 and no longer exists. it is sometimes refered to by IO's but no longer exists.
