Border Run Alternatives

Recommended Posts

75 pages of visa run alternatives, amazing, didn't think there would be anywhere near that many.

Obviously, there is some duplication. However, three years is an eternity when considering policies at different airports, consulates, and land crossings. Reports from 2015 are often worthless when planning visa runs or border bounces today.

This is really the wrong thread. However, reports over the last year or two suggest Kuala Lumpur is now a decent place to apply as long as you satisfy the requirements on their checklist. I would still hesitate to apply there if I had many previous Thai tourist visas in my passport, especially if issued in Kuala Lumpur. It is definitely now a better place to apply than Penang.

Reports for some time have been positive. Just meet the requirements on this checklist and should not have a problem.

I would recommend you carry the cash (which does not need to be in Thai currency: any major currency will do). You probably will not need to show it, but it is technically a requirement, and an easy precaution to take.

Yes it can still be done.

But remember you can only do 2 visa exempt entries at a land border crossing per calendar year.

Hey guys whats a current safe way to get another tourist visa? I've already got 2 from Laos over the past few years and dont want to push that and get that stamp. GF would like to go to Vietnam/Malaysia/Cambodia. What would be the easiest of these? 

 

I was little weary of Cambodia reading some reports of problems. Vietnam my friend got stopped at the airport a few years ago and questioned coming from there. Also if any of these have a border that would make the trip a little easier then risking an airport that would be cool. 

 

Oh yeah wanted to give back a little info for all the help this forum has given me. Hong Kong is starting to be not so visa friendly reading internet reports. "They will require tons of additional documents: bank statements, employment letters, explanatory letters, cash" That was from google. Was going to go there(went last year) but not going to mess with all that.  

 

Thanks

For the visa applications itself I would choose Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi) as the best, Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur or Kota Bharu, but not Penang) next, and Cambodia (Phnom Penh) as the least desirable.

 

However, if you have spent a lot of time in Thailand as a tourist over the last year or so, there is a slight risk entering Thailand by air (possibly, this does not apply at all airports, but does seem a potential issue at Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang, Phuket and Krabi). Do not worry about this (entering with a visa) if you have spent less than six months out of the last year in Thailand. If you want to enter Thailand by land (always safe with a visa except at Poipet/Aranyaprathet) this makes Vietnam less attractive as the place to get your visa, unless you fancy making a real holiday out of it, returning something like Ho Chi Minh City -> Phnom Penh -> Ko Kong -> Hat Lek (Thai border) -> etc.

Yeah I'll most likely do Vietnam and have to roll the dice that through the airport. Thanks alot for the reply.
