Australian seeking the longest holiday visa possible

Hey hey

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m an Australian seeking to get the longest visa possible for an extended holiday. All the information I google is quite confusing. I have on a previous holiday got the 30 plus an additional 30 from immigration but would like to know the longest visa available without the hassle of going to immigration or border runs. Cheers for any help

Assuming you are under 50 and not married to a Thai etc then a Single Entry Tourist Visa should be relatively straightforward to get and it gives you 60 days in Thailand. (This can be extended by another 30 days at Immigration Office in Thailand.)

A Multiple Entry Tourist Visa is more hassle to get and doesn’t give you any longer each stay. However, it does mean you can go to another country and return to Thailand and get another 60 days (+30) as often as you like within a 6 month period.

You may get close to 9 months out of a METV, but would have to leave the country twice. That is your best bet.

Also, if you have enough money, Thai Elite visa.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
