Bangkok is a plane hub for me, and I usually stay 1 or 2 nights in transit. Can happen more than 10 times a year. I have loaded of stamps in my passport. Though I never had problems arriving in bkk.

But I had problems in Tokyo regarding my many trips in Thailand. They questioned me as they found it suspiscious. And looked through all my belongings. And let me in the country... they could not understand why I was always staying only overnight in Thailand.

So you've used 10 visa exempts on single day visits in a single year ? If so this alone tells me that the issue is not with how many entries you hand but how long you stay in the country.

You are allowed 2 visa exempts per year at land borders, 6 at airports. They seem to be targeting people with many tourist visas and visa exempts in a year. Take 20,000 baht equivalent, I also had a TM11 form ready to go in case entry was denied.

 

They can send you back where you came from, but worth asking for KL or Cambodia

 

 

Not saying your wrong as I'm unsure myself but I thought you were flagged after 6 visa exempts no matter the time period. 

Are you sure it resets every year?

Maybe the issue is a combination of those two. People staying more than one or two days and lots of times.

We obviously have different definitions of "experts" 555

That said, there's a couple on the ball and as they rightly say, there is no such law/rule as "6 by air".

I have very strong suspicions it will get you flagged though for longer than usual perusal of your movements, I had an IO take about 15 minutes flicking back and forward through my passport and checking the computer without saying a word before giving it back to me.

As long as it's 6 visa free entries within a year im fine won't get flagged. Some of the posts on thaivisa were saying you get flagged after ANY 6 visa exempts no matter when they occurred. I'd that's the case I'm due for a flag even though I've only used 2 on the past year.

Even if you do get flagged unlikely to be an issue if a "real tourist", as in obviously not living in Thailand.

I think my passport got more than the usual attention that time because, from memory, I had been there for three weeks over Christmas and New Year, then in for a couple of weeks in June, then a couple of weeks in September, then 5 days in October, then 5 days in November then back again at Christmas for three weeks ... so the last few entries could have looked like someone working illegally.
