Big changes coming to tourist visa applications?

Recommended Posts

I follow HD visa on Facebook who I think are pretty well known to anyone who has ever had to do a visa run from Koh Samui/Koh Tao etc

Anyway, I saw they just posted this message:

Many people asked us about the new Tourist Visa regulations.

Fact is, that they are not in place yet. There is a meeting planned for Mid-November where details will be agreed upon and rules are coming into effect.

What we know by now is the following:

- There will be a 6 month tourist visa that you can apply to ONLY in your country of residency (not on one of our visa trips).
- There will be a single entry tourist visa that you can apply to outside of your country of residency, for instance on our visa trip
- There will be no more multiple entry tourist visa available outside of your country of residency

Is this new info?

Could be important to those who stay here on tourist visas??

Just thought I would share it here.

Yes, I'd heard about the multiple entry tourist visa but didn't know it would only be available in your own country.

Clearly, they don't want that visa to be used by people who stay here long term on tourist visas.

I can not proof that for other countries (only what I read for Germany).

Maybe there will soon be information from the neighboring countries.

EDIT: previous post gives the answer.

How does a tourist who is retired and exploring SEA get on, he has no job but probably lots of money?

Problems for most visa runners is applying the visa in your home country and providing evidence in holding a job.

Thats rough whistling.gif

German website just says: account statement with 5000 Euro balance (no additional details).

Not mentioning job.

Job? Somewhat absurd for pensioners or those simply rich quality tourists biggrin.png

Relax everyone they will still keep the 2 and 3 entries TR visa for everyone to enjoy Thailand, Ubon joe said so!

There has been no official notice that the regular 2 and 3 entry tourist visas will phased out. Just a baseless suspicion by some people.

I know and agree, but apparently it does not mean anything...He's a moderator maybe he knows better...

That being said, I would be surprised that Laos decides cut off the visa runners tourism business which makes out a lot of income for a place that does not have much appeal, unless Chinese tourists suddenly discover a new found passion for Laos, then its over..
