I have a Swedish passport. I recently entered Thailand from Laos and was allowed to stay visa free for 30 days. I am currently still in Thailand and planning to go to Vientiane within a few days when my 30 days expire. I do not have any previous visas at all to Thailand in this passport.

What are the requirements to get a 60 day tourist visa to Thailand in Vientiane this time?

I was in Thailand a few years ago so I need to know if anything has changed.

Someone mentioned that it is required to show a proof of funds of 20000 THB now, is that correct? (It was never the case when I used to live in Thailand before).

Looking for an updated list of current requirements.

You do not need a new visa but could get a visa extension:

your 30 day visa exempt entry at immigration for a fee of 1900 baht. In Vientiane you only need the application form with 2 photos attached, copy for your passport photo page and Lao entry stamp. Plus 1000 baht for the fee.

(From this forum, also asked concerning a Swedish passport)

Looks like it’s the same question as you posted here.

Also verified from this source:

Those who arrive at the airport without a prior visa will continue to receive a 30-day stamp up to 6 times per calendar year. Extensions at Thai Immigration for the visa exemption stamps remain to be 30 days for a fee of 1,900 baht.
