Border Run Alternatives

Recommended Posts

A couple of more questions - just to be 100 % sure to not make any errors.

 

Do I need to show money if I do a border-run at Mae Sai and a airticket out of the country?

 

I entered Thailand on a visa-excemption and have extended it once.

 

Is it possible to do a visa-run without a Myanmar visa at Phu Nam Ron? Im going to Kanchanaburi next week anyway for some sightseing...

Not as a general rule, but it's worth having the cash (10K) on you just in case.

10K is only $300... I read somewhere ( if I am not mistaken) the minimum to be $600/$700 cash?

 

Welllllp, I only have 10.2k cash on me, I am in Myanmar now...

I have my flight ticket( printed out email intinery ) to show and the cash, I am only back in Thai for 20 days so I dont think I will get refused but who knows. There is no point in getting a tourist visa(to late now anyway).

Will see what happens on Sunday morning at BKK immigration. I think I will just walk in, maybe after some questioning, but I think it will be a walk through no questions asked,

 

but who knows...

I did my visa-run yesterday. Getting to Mae Sai and back was the worst part. The traffic is horrendous up north, and long stretches of roadworks so only one lane useable.

I spent 2-3 minutes in Myanmar. Border officials was polite and helpful. They even gave a huge smile and a thumbs up when they saw I had written my thai adress in thai letters. Didnt have to show any money and didnt have to show airtickets out of the country either....

Yes. But you require a Thai multiple entry visa.
