So now for some the annual visa cost to remain in Thailand is the cost of 12 visas to Laos or some other exit/entry point?

Surely no one should be allowed to do this indefinately ?? Must be a limit of 2-3 surely ?

Lanalarge; Can I exchange my USA Citizenship for Australian Citizenship as we no longer meet those high standards. The last two generations and illegals are taking us to hell in a hand basket !!

There have been reports of some border crossings that limit the 15 day entries to 4 (Mai Sai is one).

The one in Aran/Poipet as far as I know has not been limiting them.

Wow. This is seriously hard to believe. First positive change in ages. Party like it's 2006 boys! Couldn't have come at a better time. I wasn't relishing a trip from CM to Savannakhet.

What brought this on? Anyone know?

Pffft. Why not? They make dough from tens of thousands of people transporting to and from borders. I don't even want to know the figure regarding business that's generated by border runs. Not to mention $10-15 a pop to Burma and $20 to Cambodia.

Yes, well, if you're Dutch you have to understand that helping them for FREE with advice and a master plan for flooding (which they have not implemented yet) during last year's flood puts you at a disadvantage....cheesy.gif .I say and keep repeating: An eye for an eye. If they don't allow long term visas here for your country, do the same in your country. If you are not allowed to buy land or houses here, do the same in your country. That'd help I am sure, what, with toxin investing abroad.... biggrin.pngclap2.gifcheesy.gif

That is along the lines of a post I put up. An eye for an eye.

What is Thailand getting in return from these counties.

I bet it is still just as hard for me to take my Thai wife on a holiday in the States.

My wife has had here 10 visa for the US since 2007 and has been to the US a few time, the last time was March this year. She got her visa in Chiang Mai AND she had no problem with the US Consulate. Sorry HD but your comment is totally out of place.

All at least fairly developed countries, and then Italy?? They might as well include Greece, Turkey or Russia, if Italy is included.

Sweden and Holland should have been included.

Must be the first positive change in the visa law in ages. I hope other countries will follw as I'm not a citizen of any of the mentioned above...

Remember it's going to cost 500 baht to cover your 'medical expenses'!

Hmm...So very astuterolleyes.gif.pagespeed.ce.hZ59UWKk-s.gif - Except if that were a consideration they would have left it at 15 days for a faster turnaround...............w00t.gif.pagespeed.ce.fUUOmDCInI.gif

Funny how they leave out Aust & NZ.

Wikipedia: "ASEAN stated that it aims to complete all its free trade agreements with China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand by 2013, in line with the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASEAN

Australia one of the few countries with a "free trade agreement, at least it is "under investigation" since Barnaby Joyce bought up the Thai - Aust agreement 2 weeks ago as an example of how not to make a Fre Trade Agreement and used it as an example how some countries can not be trusted on ABC Q&A show while discussing the Chinese free trade agreement that the libs are trying to get done. He specificly mentioned how the Thais went against the spirit of it by manipulating CC engine sizes of vehicles to abuse it and it is all one sided due to this.

Go Thais Go xw00t.gif.pagespeed.ic.mm3WWmVptC.webp alt=w00t.gif width=18 height=20>xbah.gif.pagespeed.ic.UBlCYNwc5a.webp alt=bah.gif width=19 height=19>

Very interesting indeed. I missed this. It would be about time Australia realises how Australian exports in the FTA are being screwed into Thailand and they aren't abiding by the agreement. Would be nice to see Thailand questioned internationally for once and Australia start to re-neg on some of the agreements for Thai exports in Aus. Maybe they will wake up?

When will they inform their officers at the land borders? Sometime next year?

several people have already said they have received the 30 day stamps.
