Land Borders Set To Limit Visa Exempt Entries To Two Per Year
https://www.stickboybangkok.com/news/th ... -per-year/From December 31st immigration checkpoints at land border crossings into Thailand will only allow visitors to enter the Kingdom on a visa exemption stamp twice in a calendar year, bringing an end to the much used loophole of staying in the country by doing back to back border hops.
Citizens of certain countries, including Malaysia, are exempt from the new rules that have been rubber-stamped to prevent foreigners using and abusing the system intended for use by genuine tourists.
....After an unspecified number of entries into Thailand using visa exemptions the system would alert the immigration official to issue nothing more then a warning to the passport holder this would be their last entry on a visa exemption and they should obtain a visa issued at an embassy or consulate in future.
The new rules will have zero impact on tourism and affect only those living here long term without the means to obtain a suitable visa solution – and there are plenty of options.
NOTE till Feb 28th, 60day thai visas are FREE
