  List of Countries - Allowed 30-Day Stay Without a Visa ( For Tourism Only) - Passport MUST be valid for at least six more months.

Please be aware that Thai Immigration's recent crack down on visa runners is aimed at visa runners who abuse the visa exemption program for the purpose of working in Thailand.  "Visa runners" refers to foreigners who leave Thailand to a neighboring country for a brief stay and then return to Thailand for another 15 or 30-day stay without any type of visa.  The visa exemption program is for the purpose of tourism only.  At present, Thai Immigration will take measures of warning and advising visa runners to obtain the proper visa.  However, beginning August 12, 2014, Thai Immigration will begin prohibiting visa runners from entering Thailand.  Those wishing to enter Thailand for purposes other than tourism are advised to secure the proper visa prior to their arrival in Thailand.

Passport holders from the countries below can visit Thailand without a visa for the maximum of 30 days stay per entry with a total period of stay not exceeding 90 days within 6 months from the date of first entry into the kingdom. To enter the kingdom using 30-DAY STAY WITHOUT VISA again , this can be done after the first 6 months (from the first date you enter thailand) .

NOTE:  If entering Thailand through one of the immigration checkpoints at the borders with neighboring countries, the period allowed to enter Thailand without a visa will be no more than 15 days.
