Do I need a visa to Thailand or Indonesia?

Posted Sohail on Nov 1, 2013 in  Course FAQ


Most nationalities are given a free 30-day tourist visa on arrival. For some passport holders, you may need to apply in your country of residence. If you wish to extend your stay in Thailand longer than 30 days, border runs to Myanmar (just 20 minutes away from the resort) can be arranged at your own expense. Please note that over staying your visa will result in a 500 THB per day penalty upon departure.

You can also ask for a 60-day-visa from the Thai embassy in your own country before arriving in Thailand.

Check out the Visa Policy of Thailand.
