Thailand Visa Exemption Rule

The Visa Exemption Rule allows tourists from the United States to enter Thailand without a visa for a maximum period of 30 days. In order to be allowed into Thailand you must have a confirmed return ticket or an onward ticket showing that you are flying out of the country within the 30 days of entry.  You will also be required to have funds of at least 10,000 THB (about $280 USD) per person during your stay. This 30 day time limit may subsequently be extended for an additional 30 days by paying a 1,900 baht fee (around $53 USD) to a Thai Immigration Bureau office. 

If an individual wishes to remain in Thailand for more than 30 days, he/she may wish to obtain a tourist visa at the Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate in the United States, prior to arriving in Thailand. The tourist visa must generally be used within 90 days from the date of issue and allows an initial stay of 60 days. After arrival in Thailand, a tourist visa may be extended at the discretion of an immigration officer once for an additional 30 days with the total period of stay no longer than 90 days.  There is a 1,900 Baht fee for the extension.
