30-Day Visa On Arrival - Know The Rules !!

Recommended Posts

I think someone needs to have a word with Hull !

 

It seems they are also adding their own ideas and interpretations to further muddy the waters.

 

I am sure the real experts will confirm the land crossing rule remains unchanged and the clock runs to the calendar year.

a 30 day exemption stamp (NOT a visa on arrival as title of thread erronously states) can be extended by 30 days. The information in the attachment is blatantly wrong and the initial posting should be deleted.

The subject seems to be about limits on 30 day Visa Exempt entries, both by air or land border. Why are you focusing on an Extension?

what's a '30 day visa on arrival'? perhaps you could explain that first as i'm not sure such a thing exists?

 

if there's a factual error in the heading i dont hold much hope for the accuracy of the content.

We know for a fact that the limit for land border visa exempt is two per calendar year, not per rolling 12-month cycle. So I've got to wonder what else they got wrong. Probably pretty much all of it!

If I had confidence that those rules would actually be *followed* on arrival to the airport I would be fine.  The thing is, I have no confidence that they will be followed.  Although I visit frequently, my visits are under the limits you list.  Yet, on entry, I have been getting lots of questions, looks and frowns.  

 

I get the feeling they are looking for ways to deny me, although I was stamped in.

... and the consulates are so convincing. It is natural to believe that Thai consulates should be aware oi Thai immigration rules, but the fact is that they are both convincing and totally unreliable when it comes to anything other than the services they provide themselves. Never accept what a Thai consulate website or consular officials tell you about immigration matters without verifying it from other sources.

 

A new one for me in this text:

 

Foreigners who enter Thailand under this Tourist Visa Exemption Scheme may only do so for 30 days at one time with a maximum of 3 times in a 6-month period by flight and 2 times a year for overland crossing.

2019 I entered Thailand 7 times with  a US passport and nothing was ever said to me. Always got the 30 day visa exempt stamp. I did ask the immigration office where I do my TM 30, and was told there is no limit to entering on a visa exempt by air. This was last month.

Just incorrect wording for the total of 90 days in 6 months rule for visa exempt entries that was rescinded in 2008.

They left out the total of 90 days out of it and replaced it with 3 times.

They left out per calendar year for the 2 visa exempt entries limit at land border crossings part.
