Obvious Hong Kong is a mistake, as they have Bilateral Agreement.

Means Laos, Macau, Vietnam, Mongolia have still unlimited entries for 30days.

Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru entries for 90days, South Korean by Air only.

 

If they try to stop Visa Run they should have included Laotian and Vietnamese as they have 500-600 runner per day, while Farang/Filipinos about 60 per day.

yes , you can enter TWICE in 2017 under visa exemption and you should get 30 days.

You might take this flyer with you.

Hong Kong is shown on both the visa exempt and bilateral agreement list. Vietnam also appears on both lists also.

The big question is will we be allowed to return the same day? (if so which land crossings will allow this?).

More like which one does not allow a same day turnaround. Only Sadao and occasionally Padang Besar do not allow it.

But there are 3 crossings to Myanmar that do not allow any crossings for new exempt entry. Ban Phu Nam Ron, Mae Sot and Mae Sai do not allow them.

Maybe I read the message wrong.

The point in the message is the "only twice a calender year".

 

Countries that are entitled to 30 days visa exemption, can only enter Thailand twice a year at border crossings.

 

Then there is a list of the countries that are under the 30 days visa exempt scheme - to show the countries that the rules covers.

 

Where does it mention that the 15 days are changed to 30 days for border crossings?

It seems to be a little ambiguous the way it is written but that is what is meant.

The passport page shown is a 30 day entry for a person that would of only gotten a 15 day entry before today.
