      Visitors entering Thailand without a visa (...) can normally obtain a 30-day extension.
      Nope.
      When I last used this in 2012 it was 7 days.

          Non-imm B is also not correctly described.

            Tourist Visa info from Thai Consulate:

            Tourist Visa

            1. Requirement

            This type of visa is issued to applicants who wish to enter the Kingdom for tourism purposes.
            Note: Applicant is not permitted to engage in any occupation or employment.
            2. Documents Required

            • Passport, travel document or certificate of identity with validity not less than 6 months (Damaged, invalid or altered passports will not be accepted).
            • Visa application form completely filled out with applicant's signature.
            • Recent( 2"x 2") photograph of the applicant (photocopy or photo taken from Photostat or from vending machine will not be accepted)
            • A copy of round-trip ticket or itinerary

            3. Validity of a visa

            The validity of a visa is 3 months (single entry) or 6 months (double or triple entries)
            4. Period of stay

            Upon arrival, travelers with this type of visa will be permitted to stay in Thailand for a period of not exceeding 60 days.
            5. Extension of stay

            Those who wish to extend their visa must file an application for permission at the Office of Immigration Bureau located on Government Center B, Chaengwattana Soi 7, Laksi, Bangkok 10210, Tel 0-2141-9889 (please visit http://www.immigration.go.th). The extension of stay as well as the change of certain type of visa is solely at the discretion of the Immigration officer.
            6. Tourist visa fee

            Note: The Embassy does not issue multiple entries for Tourist Visas.
            How to make visa fee payments:
            • If application is submitted by mail or in person, please pay by money order only payable to Royal Thai Embassy. Personal cheques, company cheques, debit cards and credit cards are not accepted.

            Consular officers reserve the right to request additional documents as deemed necessary and also reserve the right to reject any application without having to provide reason.

              There are so many visas you can get in Thailand. They have the usual tourist visa, non-immigrant visa, marriage visa, retirement visa, 1 year non-immigrant visa, business visa and the permanent visa. In my case, I'm holding a permanent visa. To be granted by permanent visa you must have stayed in Thailand for 3 consecutive with 1 year visa extension and you must have a monthly income of 80,000 Baht if you are single.

                What's the difference between that "Permanent Visa" you're on about and the one we have to renew every year whether Marriage Extension or Retirement Extension?
                God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

                    Based on your description you have permanent residency visa which elliminates the requirement to do annual visa extension, 90 day reporting and if your long stay visa was for retirement purposes allows you to get a work permit.

                    In addition to requirements you state it costs 195,000 baht to get PR. Eliminate the 1,900 baht for annual extension hardly justifies cost to get PR unless you intend to live 102 years to break even. 90 day is free so no gain there. If retired and you want to work simply change visa from Non-Immigrant OA-Long Stay Visa to one which allows you to work.
                    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

                      There's a quota on numbers of individuals getting the PR Status as well. Only so many Brits, Americans, OZ etc are allowed to obtain this Visa each year and the cost is closer to 680K THB when all is said and done - if you are one of the 'lucky' ones to have been granted it.
