Thanks i have been in and out 7 years but never heard of this one. Amazing Thailand

I was aware of these rules/requirements, but they are seldom inforced.

However, a friend of mine in Chiang Mai did run into problems with regards to this at the border in Mae Sai one time.

For my next 2 or 3 runs there I made sure I was carrying the necessary funds. (I don't bother anymore).

I have always just made sure I had a recent ATM recpt showing adequate funds with me every time I hav crossed a border. I have never been asked to show anything though.

Can the funds be accessible only or does one have to have the cash on them on arrival? Sorry just realised others have asked a similar question but no answers as yet. Do I have to maintain 20,000 at all times during my stay in Thailand.
