Saudi Arabia and Thailand have no political relations due to the bizarre blue diamond affair. If my passport found to have a Thai stamp during renewal I will be fined some big fine and my passport will be suspended for up to a year.

Q: Do Thai immigrations do stamps on the landing card without stamping the passport if I ask for it?

I would rather "lose" my passport than not going to Thailand :-) –  greg121 Sep 16 '13 at 17:01
@greg121 not when you are a crew member and your passport means your job :) –  MeNoTalk Sep 16 '13 at 17:02
I can get a second passport, don't know about Saudi Arabia. –  greg121 Sep 16 '13 at 17:04
@greg121 not here, if the passport is suspended it means it will be suspended in the system. I will have my passport with me but I can't leave the country. –  MeNoTalk Sep 16 '13 at 17:06
@SystemDown Can you explain more? –  MeNoTalk Sep 16 '13 at 23:14

If you are going to Thailand because of work, you can try to get it approved. I've read somewhere that "Personal business visits have to be authorized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry." It seems like if you are going there because you work on an aircraft that is flying there, it would count as "personal business".
