I experienced this for the first time in BKK, officer said you can’t have more than 6 VE’s in 12 months. Even when it was obvious from my passport that I’ve never stayed longer than two weeks and I’ve spent at least a month in the US and other countries in between the visits. After admonishing me to get a marriage visa (my wife is Thai and lives in the US ...

That looks like a The 1 card, but with a generic number and name. Most likely this is because you didn't actually present one of these cards when you made your purchase. Using a generic number like this, you might get some privileges such as discounts on your purchase, but not any points as you aren't in the program. It appears you got a discount of 11 baht ...

Yikes, this is super tight. Some info on how to transfer between the airports is here. You don't have time for the bus, so you are probably best off taking a taxi and hope for a driver who doesn't take you on the scenic route, and that the traffic isn't horrible. You need to get out of the plane, go through immigration, collect your bags, go through ...

I guess this is to filter out people who only carry local card systems' issued cards, such as Russian Mir or Israel's Isracard which can lead to effective unavailability of funds as there's no places or ATMs that accept those.

My reading of our earlier answer is that you will need a full visa, not a transit visa, if you leave the sterile zone to collect and re-check luggage. If your tickets are on one reservation and you check your luggage through to India, you can stay airside and do not need any visa whatsoever. You are eligible for a visa on arrival at a cost of 2000 Thai Baht. ...

Thai immigration rules are not clearly defined or properly published and often in flux. There's plenty of speculation on the internet, but you won't be able to get a clear and reliable answer on this, even if you personally ask an immigration official. Similarly, embassy/consulate staff would be next-to-useless, since they're under a different ministry than ...

Depends on what exactly you mean by "official", but no, you can't legally continue from there to the rest of Myanmar. There are only four border crossings open to foreigners between Thailand and Myanmar, and Kew Pha Wok is not one of them: https://www.go-myanmar.com/arriving-and-departing-over-land (not an official source, mind you, but Myanmarese ...

German passport holders are visa exempt for stays in Thailand up to 30 days. You can catch a train from the airport to the city centre, with the trip taking ~20 minutes and cost 150 baht the last time I was there. Given the above two facts, you could very easily head into central bangkok for the day - once you are out of the airport, the city is your ...

You would not need a visa to transit Thailand, when you're making a connection of not more than 12 hours. For a long period, such as a two-day visit, you would need to secure a transit visa in advance. From Thailand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Transit Visa This type of visa may be issued to applicants who wish to enter the Kingdom for the following ...

It is possible, provided that you get a visa as you describe. However, you might not want to book separate tickets like this. There are a few ways to book this trip, and while all will "work," some may be substantially more expensive than others: One multi-stop ticket (single purchase transaction) covering (SEA->BKK; BKK->DEL; DEL->SEA). The same, except ...

Here's what I found out about T-mobile's free roaming while in Thailand: It was almost always roaming on AIS. (I think there was also some other operator in some areas around Bangkok.) The speed was indeed throttled: the connection would not load all websites well but was enough to occasionally upload a small amount of photos. I even tethered my laptop and ...

From reading Power plug & outlet Type H and Power plug & outlet Type O it appears that they are not compatible. The latter link explicitly says Although they look similar, type O plugs are not interchangeable with the Israeli type H Also from Israel SI32 (Type H) it says The pre-1989 system has three flat pins in a Y-shape, with line and ...

If this is booked on a single ticket you will only go through customs and immigration in BKK and your bags will go all the way from SNA to BKK If these are two separate tickets, you have a big problem and should rebook. SNA to SEA is a domestic flight. 90 minutes is plenty provided your first flight is not excessively delayed. SEA to NRT is international ...

Big tip from foreign Thai resident... If you have any overstays in your passport (dangerous as you can be blacklisted) when you replace your passport book it all resets and you get a new number. Thai immigration smiled when he seen my new passport book and told me my overstays are all gone. I specifically asked in Thai if they had any electronic record of my ...

I just got fined even just for one day also had the stamp overstay on passport. I left Thailand at Ranong border going into Myanmar and accidentally I had overstayed one day in Thailand. I didn't complain or argue, I apologized and had told them I was a bit sick and stayed on the island Koh Phayam. I had to pay 500 regardless.

While there may not be many official resting places, there are PTT gas stations, which are the go-to stops for those making road trips in Thailand (and beyond?, can't say from experience but they're certainly trying). Without making it too much of advertisement, I am going to argue that they are the best rest area because they provide a consistent quality ...

Simplest- the zoo Phuket Zoo seems to have them based on this photo I found on the internet, which is titled: "Picture of Nycticebus bengalensis / Northern slow loris at Phuket Zoo": Plain link attribution: https://zooinstitutes.com/animals/northern-slow-loris-phuket-zoo-14525.html I would like to add that I don't recommend Phuket Zoo. There are better ...

I just spent the first 2 weeks of October in Bangkok, Chang Mai and the Golden triangle, I never had problems with pollens despite my mild allergy.

Sure it's allowed; I do that all the time. Make sure you leave enough time between your 'connections' - if you miss your 'connection' because your incoming flight is late, it is your problem, not the airlines, so 4 - 6 hours should be your minimum 'connection' time. You should be aware that you need to pick up your luggage, and check it in for the next ...

Thailand's animal welfare law was adopted in 2014, but you can still watch orangutans in kick-boxing shows, take part in elephant riding and have your own tiger selfie. Terrible! You may check this Wildlife Rescue Centre that offers a day visit and volunteering activities as well. "We take our rescue and rehabilitation work very seriously. Please be aware ...

Yes, you need a visa for this, because you will need to leave the international area, collect your bags, and check them in for your next flight. This is because you have purchased separate tickets from airlines in different alliances. Fortunately, Indian citizens can apply for a visa on arrival at BKK. From Timatic: Nationals of Bhutan, India, Romania ...

If you mean a cashless payment system I saw a lot of people in Thailand use LinePay (with Line application), Paypal and a Samsung app with NFC. But sure applications and cashless systems are not really famous and used like China, Korea, and Japan.

You should NOT have a problem entering. Should you somehow be flagged for suspicion of illegally working, you have the 20k THB + flight ticket out + rental contract (show only what they ask). There is nothing official that would prevent you from coming and being allowed to enter. Unofficially, some immigration offices seem to be tracking extensions and ...

No. I am British and visited both places this year and got entry on arrival. Thailand is actually Visa free for Brits.

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: Thailand Visa required, except for Passengers with a British passport with nationality British Citizen for a maximum stay of 30 days. Malaysia Visa required, except for Passengers with a British passport for a maximum stay of 90 days So no, you don't need visas.

Difficult to know for sure as nearly every foreigner I've run into uses a local sim, but it likely will be AIS or TrueMove (True or True-H or TrueMove H). Other than for accepting an SMS or emergency call, you may be better off with a local SIM (50-100 baht [$1.6-$3.2]). It will usually come with some call credit + free internet for a couple of days, ...

Timatic says that you will need a visa for Thailand: Transit - Thailand (TH) TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Passengers transiting through Bangkok (BKK) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 12 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination. ...

Short answer: no, this must be applied for in your country of residence The Verpflichtungserklärung is a legally binding declaration that the signer will cover all costs of a foreign national while in Germany this is mainly intended for German residents only The Visa guidelines state this can also be used for travel visas which a consulate or embassy can ...
