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.

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.
