    Default Tourist Visa Question

    This came from a mate. Can you help?

    My brother is going soon too for a couple of months, he's flying in and out of Bangkok and I was wondering if, as it is 60 days after he gets to Bangkok, he needs to have a booked flight out of Thailand before the 30 day visa is up? He's planning to go to Cambodia and Laos but I read somewhere that train/bus tickets aren't valid so I was wondering how stringent the Thai authorities are about it? Thanks

    does he have a visa issued from a Thai embassy/consulate, if not as i suspect you are referring to a 30 day visa exempt entry, then he will need an air ticket out of Thailand within 30 days, or he could be denied boarding in the UK, Thai immigration do not enforce. A cheap throw away ticket say UTP /SIN there is one on the 28th Oct for 741 baht would do, or a tourist visa

    My experience is not so much a problem of the Thai authority when entering, we often go to Laos and just tell them we are getting the bus but will buy a ticket once we decide when to go, it is more a problem, as Steve said, that of being denied boarding in the UK.

    I have that problem this time around in December. I will be going for 32 days and I foresee no problem entering LOS and explaining about going to Laos, but it is the fear of being denied boarding in the UK (more strict on rules than LOS) that is making me purchase a visa. It's only £35 (£25 visa + £10 admin) and for £35 I would rather be safe than sorry.
