    Visa expires can still use visa exemption?

    Hi Any one know = my multi entry non immigrant type O visa runs out during the 24Oct to 3Nov Embassy slow down, can I still get in on the exemption for a short stay less than 30 days after using a visa?

    Yes you can. As long as the O has expired when you enter LOS.

    And this visa exempt entry can be extended for 30 days at your local Immi office for 1900 baht.
    Remember you can only get 2 land border entries visa exempt per calendar year.

    There is no slowdown - Immigration closures are October 23, 26 and November 5th.
    The other weekdays they are open.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    Thanks Guys, the London Royal Thai Embassy states min 10 working days for postal applications until further notice which is what I use, as going up to London twice (next working day collection over this period) it is cheaper to pay for a postal order and the special postage.

    Okay it went well thru Bkk transit immigration, the officer did search thru my PP, guess looking for a new visa and put a line thru the expired one, 30days given. Flew in the newer Thai A350, smooth and quiter even during taxi but aisles seem narrower!
