There is absolutely no need to spend 24 hours out of Thailand. This is an urban myth. Do not believe anybody who tells you. On your return to Thailand you will receive a further 90 days permission to stay.

 

90 days?

Presumably, @Briggsy is referring to border bounces by people with multiple entry Non O visas.

I was replying to a poster who has a multi-entry non-imm O visa, so, yes, he will get 90 days.

Hello, I want back to Thailand at the end of January and apply for SETV. 

 

My first question - which consulate is the easiest to get it? I prefer try in Malaysia or Myanmar. 

Second - which land boarder is the best? I mean no problem with entry. 

 

Near my visa story: 

 

I arrived to Thailand one year ago with SETV (from embassy in my home country) and no back to my home country all this time. My story is: 

 

- One SETV (2 months + 1 months extension) 

- Three visa exemptions (2 times extension): two times land, one time plane

 

Generaly in last year I spend around 220 days in Thailand. In October I leave Thailand by land and travelling to Cambodia, Vietnam (two times), Laos and will be travel to Singapore, Malaysia and Myamar.

 

Thanks for all your tips and advice.

Vientiane, Laos.

Given your recent long history of tourism you might get questioned about what you are doing in Thailand, but entries are rarely denied anywhere if you have a SETV.

You should be OK getting your visa in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Bharu or Yangon.

If you get the visa in Kuala Lumpur, I suggest taking the train to Padang Besar, and crossing there.

If you get the visa as Kota Bharu, there is a crossing at Sungai Kolok about an hour away. It takes a while on the Thai side to get elsewhere in Thailand, but this should otherwise be OK.

From Yangon (which I like for a Thai visa) you can take an overnight bus to the border at Myawaddy/Maesot. If you want to get to Bangkok, Maesot airport is near the border, and flights to Don Muang pretty frequent.

Hi,
I got this stamp on the 4th crossing into Laos, at Vientiane. I want to go to Cambodia and get another tourist visa, to enter Thailand, do you reckon, I'll be denied a tourist visa, with the correct paperwork?
Another though would be to go to Vientiane and fly into Don meung, I'll get a Cambodia visa for next trip.
I know there will be an answer in the 1000 odd pages.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
TIA

With that stamp on your visa you will not be able to get another one in Phnom Penh or some other locations.

It is time to get a new passport. 

Having that stamp from the embassy will not affect entering the country.

Thanks Joe,
So Cambodia won't give one, but flying into Thailand fro Vientiane, will give me a 30day entry?
I got in a few days ago with the stamp on my 4th visa.
Cheers

You could get a 30 day visa exempt entry at a border crossing (2 per calendar year) or by air.

You can get a new passport. It does not have to be full or near to being expired.

I believe you received a visa along with that stamp. The stamp does not affect the validity of the visa. If you fly back to Thailand with your freshly issued, unused visa, you will receive a 60-day stay. There is a small chance that you may be interrogated by immigration as to why you spend so much time in Thailand. The safest approach would be to enter Thailand via the Friendship bridge, and fly on to Bangkok from Udon Thani airport.

 

Applying for further Thai tourist visas is going to be difficult until you get a replacement passport.

Thanks for reply.
Yes I did enter through Nong Khai with the stamp on the visa, without any problem.
It was for further tourist visas that I was inquiring about.
The stamp says "maybe refused" but that ultimately means No,!
Thanks for clarifying. I'll fly in to Don meung, I months time and see what happens!!
Cheers
Chris

Be aware that, if there is significant time remaining on your existing tourist entry, and you will be away only a few days you have the option of buying a re-entry permit for 1,000 baht to keep your existing permission to stay intact on your return. This avoids the need for a visa exempt entry. If you plan to spend a lot of time in Thailand in the future, you should use visa exempt entries as little as possible. Usually, immigration will not create problems when you use visa exempt entries very rarely (though they can). Immigration has a lot of discretion over whether to grant visa exempt entries and sometimes deny entry when (in the view of the individual official) you have been using visa exempt entries to "spend too much time" in Thailand.

Good to know,
Thanks very much
