 i dont believe that

Mate of mine from Sydney was pulled up at BKK after being to Thailand on his 4th tourist visa in one year, on that particular 4th tourist visa he went to KK for the weekend with his then Thai girlfriend, when they returned to connect flights to Phuket where he was staying at (hotel) and his return flight was out of a few days later, they said, you can't come in, you have been in the country on a tourist visa 4 times, no more that 4 is allowed in one year (apparently), he paid I think from memory 1,000 baht and they let him go, he made his way to Phuket and departed when he was supposed to, i.e. a few days later.

 

I believe you can come and go from Australia as many times as you like, the same from KL, but maybe not for an Aussie ?

A similar thing happened to a friend of mine also Aussie when he landed in Phuket he's not coming back

Get up to speed, as of July for Vietnam its max one month then have to leave and return...expensive and very inconvenient

Just incorrect info on a honorary Thai consulate website.

A ticket out of the country is only needed for a visa exempt entry.

Then let's try it with the Thai Embassy's german website.

 

Related to SETV they write about the requirements:

 

[...]

"Kopie der Flugbestätigung oder der Flugtickets (Hin- und Rück- oder Weiterflug)"

[...]

 

Translated: Copy of flight confirmation or the tickets ( go and return or onward)

Just further proof that it was bogus denial of entry.

I do get a little tired of people saying people are not tourists as well. Nothing wrong IMO with people staying here on tourist visas as long as they are not working here or involved in some other nefarious activity. They bring money into the country and probably helpt to keep many Thais employed.

I think some people staying here on long stay visas and extensions are a little jealous of people being able to stay here without getting those visas and extensions.

I think in general many of the people who makes those posts are just hypocrite's who do not want other foreigners to stay in a place they enjoy. I imagine many of them were here staying when the rules were very relaxed and then ended up married or old enough to get a easy retirement visa. Now they want to give everyone who's doing what they once did(spending half the year on TV's in a great country) a hard time. 

 

As far as OP yeah they shouldnt ask you for a flight ticket out if you had a TV since you already had to show the consulate at home that. You just randomly walked into the line of the wrong IO. Thats the problem here is theirs no rules on how long you can stay in  a year. You arent breaking any real rules.

Why should I or anyone want to give a hard time to those on back to back TVs? For what?

 

I'm one of those who came to Thailand when it was very relaxed. Back to Back TVs as many as you wanted. One time I even did not exit the country for a new TV. You just gave your PP to a travel agency and after a while it came back with a Thai exit stamp, a Malaysian entry and exit stamp and a brand new double entry TV from Penang. I got my first retirement extension at the age of 43.

 

But these times are long gone. Rules have changed and we have to accept it, if we want ot stay here long time.
