Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me, my head hurts with trying to work out visas. I'm from the UK and want to speand 60 days in thailand, so I need a tourist visa before i leave.
I leave March the 1st but will not arrive in thailand untill about June 15th and will leave August 15th - this means I need a visa valid for 6 months so its valuid for when i arrive.
However if i get the Visa before leaving at the beginning of Feb it will expire the beginning of august!
so the question is do i have to enter thailand and leave before the validity (6 month period) runs out or do i have to enter thailand for the next entry before the validity runs out - so for instance i could enter thailand the middle of june - leave after 30 days and re enter the middle of july - i then have till the middle of august regardless of the validity of the visa running out at the beginning of august.
we also can't do a visa run as we are entering overland and you only get 15 days so this isn't an option!
