CAN ONE EXIT THAILAND INTO LAOS N BACK OUT SAME DAY?

Post by Mudguard » October 10, 2017, 4:03 pm

I have exited Thailand into Laos and out on same day, several times over the years with the last being 5 years ago....

Can any member please let me know if I can still go in and out on the same day now, as I can get a 12 month O A visa...

Cheers, Mudguard... :D

As 747 indicates you are providing a little less than the full information to enable anyone to answer your question accurately.
Much depends on exactly under what circumstance that you want to re-enter Thailand & if you are not in possession of a Thai Visa, how long you want to remain in Thailand on return..

As has been said if you currently have an O-A visa: yes
If you have an extension of stay with a reentry permit: yes
If you don't have either and want a Visa exempt 30 day permission to stay: yes


However if you want to get an O-A visa:no
If you are not a Lao resident (or Loa national) you will not get an O-A visa (as you do not meet the requirements)
If you want any visa:no (the minimum time is 2 days (submitted day 1 issue day 2)

Old rule.
As of December 31, 2016, 55 countries, including Australia, get 30 days including at a land border.

It came in with the 2 entry by land limit.

Assuming it was after 1st January. The IO made a mistake.

If you are still on the 15 days

Then you can go to an immigration office and get the stamp corrected.
