Extermly confused about U.S. passport holders and visa requirements

Recommended Posts

Long question short.   If you are coming to Thailand for 3 weeks, do you need a visa?   

 

And tied into this question, do you need to get one (visa) and pay for it when leaving or entering Thailand?  E.g. The visa on arrival lane at Suvarnabhumi?  

 

Many thanks for your time and answer.

No need to get one prior to arrival. They will stamp your passport at the airport and it is good for a 30 day stay. If there's a fee associated with it (I don't know if there is or not) it should be included in the price of your airline ticket.

No visa needed and no charge when coming from USA currently. Your airline should give you the card to fill out prior to landing in BKK.

Awesome!  Thank you so much for the clarity Viandefraich & smithzac.  I was scouring the internet and couldn't make heads or tails of it.   :wacko:

Bring a pen to fill out the card before you get off the plane. Sometimes they are hard to come by and it might slow you down having to fill it out once you get to the immigration desk.

Getting a taxi from Suvarnabhumi to the city is very easy. 

 

Ignore all taxi services inside the airport building. Go down to the ground floor where the public taxi stand is. Right outside, at about the middle of the length of the building there is a machine that will assign a taxi lane to you. Go to the taxi in your lane number. Tell the driver to use meter and highway. Should be in all about 200 bath to Sukhumvit + about 70 for highway tolls.

 

From Don Mueang it is a bit more complicated and often there is a queue. Go upstairs and find a taxi on the opposite side (?) of the main exit (follow the Thais). You will get a better deal here and limited to no waiting. It has been a while since I have been at Don Mueang, so maybe someone can help me with more accurate directions.

Perfect summary and advice. Thank you sir!

I remember back at Don Mueang, when leaving the country, you had to pay 500 Baht, in cash, after checking in and before clearing immigrations.  Never had to do this at Suvarnabhumi, kinda makes me wonder... (and I always wondered, why leaving? and what happened if you didn't have the 500 Baht?)
