Visa Tips for those booking flights to Thailand

Spending some money on airfares to Thailand is definitely well worth the expense. Be it Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, Krabi, or Chiang Mai, each and every corner of Thailand oozes spellbinding charm. Get introduced to a few essential visa tips if you are planning a trip to the country.

Entering without Visas

British nationals can book flights to Thailand and stay in the country without a visa as long as the stay does not exceed 30 days. Travellers arriving via overland crossings without a visa can stay for 15 days.

Visa Violation

Savings made on cheap flights to Thailand can go down the drain if you exceed the permitted length of stay. Initiation of legal proceedings, massive fines, detention, and getting deported at your own cost can be the consequences in such a scenario. In fact, you may not even get to book flights to Thailand in the future as the authorities can disqualify you from ever visiting the country again.

Where to Get a Visa

If you have made up your mind to book flights to Thailand, remember that the only legal places for obtaining a visa are a Thai embassy or consulate, Immigration offices around the nation, and Immigration officers at the entry points into Thailand.

Essential Contact

Information on visas and other entry requirements may be obtained from the office of the Thai Ambassador in London. The address is
