We are planning a December trip to Singapore and from there to Thailand. I read that the 15-day VOA applies to us, being citizens of one of those EU countries.
We will arrive in Bangkok, stay 4-5 days, go to Cambodia for the next 2-3 days and back to Bangkok/Krabi for about a week more, then fly home. All border crossings are planned to be done by air, and reserved before the trip starts. Same for accommodations.
The interval when we first enter Thailand and when we exit it the last time will be 16-18 days, which is over this 15-day limit period.
- In my understanding, this will require 2 VOAs, on the first arrival and another one on the second one from Cambodia. Is this correct?
- Does this interval (16-18 days) matter at all? Does the second VOA reset this day counter considering we leave for 2-3 days and it's not just a visa run?
- Is this legally acceptable? Could we have some issues with this itinerary?
