Mai Sot border run.

Recommended Posts

Have an Australian friend that needs to extend by a few days 1 week his visa on arrival one.

He can go to Nakhon Sawan via office and get it done. Without any problem.

But would sooner go and do a Mai Sot with an over the border run.

Question.

Can he still do it without any agro or have they blocked it now.

Thanks in advance.

They do not allow out/in crossings for a visa exempt entry at Mae Sot.

He will need get an extension of his entry at immigration office unless he wants to make a trip to Cambodia or Laos. The only crossing to Myanmar that that allows them is Ranong.

Thanks for the info UB looks like he will have to go to N/Sawan.

Not a problem as they are both about the same distance from us. Its just that they are doing road works there and it's a real pain at present.

Seems like travel to the Myanmar (Burma) border should be considered carefully.

Reports from misc. border points of unrest and closure.

(and that does not affect Thai people only)

A friend of mine (on 30days visa excempt, G7 country) want to travel in Myanmar for approx 2 weeks.

He already got his visa to Burma.

He will leave Thailand in Mae Sai.

Back to Thailand he wants to enter in Mae Sot.

Will get get another 30days excempt at this border after 2 weeks stay in Myanmar?

The Myanmar visa will allow him to leave the country at Mae Sai and then re-enter the country at Mae Sot and get a visa exempt entry.

Only out/in border crossings for a visa exempt entry are not allowed at both locations.
