Booking Flight for a 6 week stay (Visa on arrival)


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I know that I can stay longer than 30 days by extending my Visa during my stay for 1900THB. But am I allowed to enter the country with a return flight dated 6 weeks in the future?

There's a small chance your airline won't let you board. Immigration in Thailand unlikely to care.

Hm, okay. Thank you. Any workaround here? Maybe book Frankfurt-Bangkok-Kuala Lumpur-Frankfurt to avoid that problem?

Double check with the airline direct or get a visa before you go or do a quick visa run instead of extending 30 day exempt (e.g. book a cheap return to KL or wherever) so you can show the airline at Frankfurt if they ask (if refundable could always cancel and go the extension route).

What’s your home country for passport? Not every country has the same visa conditions.

The cheap flight out of the country doesn't even have to be return, the airline that's flying you in just needs to see that you'll be flying out again.

I was returning to Thailand from Vietnam with plans to get an extension, and then apply for an ED visa - with no solid plans to fly out again (ever, heh). The check-in counter needed to see proof of ongoing travel, so I just pulled up an internet site and booked the cheapest BKK->anywhere in a months time I could find. About $30 US IIRC. That satisfied them.
Thai immigration didn't even care when I got there.

I eventually extended that trips tourist visa waiver by 30d, and then did a border bounce to Malaysia by land to secure my ED visa a month after that.

The budget airline flight, I just forfeited.

I shopped around a bit, but I couldn't immediately find a ticket that I could cancel and get a reasonable refund that didn't end up costing me more than just the disposable budget ticket. eg, I could have got a 'refundable' flight for $USD 160, but they'd charge me $USD 40 cancellation fee.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
