Thailand visa information
With immediate effect the Thai immigration authorities have changed the way that they issue visas. Up until now it has been possible to obtain a stay of 30 days on arrival, through both land and air borders. This now only applies to visitors arriving by air.
If you are arriving into Thailand through a land border, you will only be issued with a visa for 15 days. It is possible to extend this once in Thailand but this can be time consuming. We therefore recommend that if you are arriving into Thailand overland, and are staying for more than 15 days, that you obtain your visa in advance.
If you are arriving into Thailand via an air border, you will still be issued with a visa for 30 days.
As this is effective immediately we recognise that not all travellers will have time to obtain a visa before their departure for Thailand. If you are arriving into Thailand overland, are staying for more than 15 days, and have not been able to get a visa before arrival, please let your tour leader know as soon as possible in order that they may assist you in extending your visa.
