To get a Thai visa or do visa run?
I've heard Thai immigration recently changed the time allowed without a visa to 15 days to make it more difficult to do visa runs. I understand most people do this to stay in the country as long as they wish, but would it just be easier to get a visa to stay longer?
We probably want to stay for at least 2 months. I'll be arriving in a few weeks, so still have time to sort out paperwork if necessary
To promote tourism, after the airport fiasco, Thailand has dropped the fees on many non-immigrant visas. I believe you can get a 60 day visa without charge.
Flying into Thailand, you will still receive the 30 days without visa (presuming you are carrying a US passport).
But, you wish to stay "at least 2 months". This means that you will either have to get a visa (free or not), make visa runs for 15 day extensions (no longer 30 days), or plan 37-B.
Where's the confusion?
