Thread: Crackdown on Foreigners Getting Repeat Tourist Visas

  1. #41
    Yes I imagine the 3 flights in every 6 months policy changed when the 30 day extension option was added to 30 day visa exemptions, which would allow someone to stay there permanently if flying out then straight back in again every 60 days. The lack of clear current policy seems to be catching a lot of people out. Why oh why don't the Thais spell out what is allowed in advance so people don't turn up at immigration and have to be sent away.

    Tom, I asked my Thai embassy about this as I'm currently traveling in & out of Thailand multiple times. They replied...

    "The permit of the entry and the duration of the stay will be upon the discretion of the Immigration Officer at the Immigration check point"

    So who knows? They haven't given me a definite answer 1 way or the other

    Crackdown for the anxious set.

    .....and for those who don't know how to manipulate the system.

    And for those who don't know that the system metastasizes, evolves, revolves and excretes regulations at different rates of implementation using smoke and mirrors: it's one reason why the swamp is so mysterious.
