The Thai authorities have changed the way in which they will
deal with tourists entering Thailand for up to 30 days without a valid visa and
as there is some confusion as to the exact meaning of these changes we hope
that this explanation will help clarify the situation.
The most important point to understand is that this only
affects people who do not have a valid visa. If you have a valid visa there is
no change at all to the way your travel arrangements will be dealt with and you
need read no further.
If you are entering the Kingdom of Thailand without a valid
visa there is a concession which allows you to do so providing that the
following conditions are ALL fulfilled.
1. Your Passport is on a list of passports approved for this
purpose. It is likely to be but please check if you are in doubt.
2. Your visit to the Kingdom of Thailand is for tourism
3. You hold a confirmed air ticket to leave the Kingdom
within 30 days direct from a Thai airport. Please note that you must travel by
air and travel from an an airport outside of Thailand does not count.
This has been the rule for many years and nothing has
changed in this regard. The only thing that has changed is that these rules are
being applied more strictly than in the past.
This means that you will not be allowed into the Kingdom of Thailand
without a valid visa unless you can fulfil all of the above conditions.
If you enter the Kingdom at an immigration checkpoint, which
borders another country, you may be allowed upto 15 days entry providing you
have a confirmed air ticket to leave the Kingdom within those 15 days.
Note that this enforcement of the current rules are intended
to end the practice of a person without a valid visa going to the border every
Please also be aware that Airlines often check if passengers
have either a valid visa or a return ticket within 30 days and will exclude you
from boarding a flight to Thailand if you have neither. The Thai authorities
have asked Airlines to be more vigilant in this respect.
The last point is that this 30 days only applies if your
total stay is up to 30 days. It is not a free 30 days which can be added to the
length of your visa as some people seem to think.
