Immigration
When you finally make that decision to visit or settle in Thailand for good, you would have to consider the Thai Immigration rules and regulations pertaining to your entry permits. Indeed, you would need to procure the appropriate Thai visa to allow you to come and stay in Thailand.

Thai Visas
A long term stay in Thailand becomes every foreigner’s dream after being smitten with the natural beauty of the Kingdom during his first, second or third visit in the country. The Land of Smiles, as Thailand is fondly called, spells a cast to every foreign visitor forcing the foreigner to come back for another visit or if not, to finally settle in the country.
Just exactly why foreigners are so enamored of Thailand? There are myriad of reasons. The country’s tropical beauty, friendly people, world-renowned gastronomy and the low cost of living easily top the list. The country’s efficient public transportation system anywhere in the country facilitates convenience in traveling allowing the visitor to easily discover and enjoy the many wonders which the country has to offer. There is also that exotic and mystic appeal typical of an Oriental country especially so for a Buddhist country like Thailand. These and among other things are the main draw for the influx of foreign visitors in the country.

According to Thai Immigration Rules and Regulations, there are several types of visa that a foreigner can choose from depending on his qualifications and purpose of their stay in the country. Thai visas can be classified as:

1. 30 Day Stamp and Visa On Arrival

This stamp is valid for 30 days and it’s stamped at the qualified foreigner’s passport at the passport control booth at the airport. The 30-day visa is granted provided that the foreigner is holding a return flight ticket with him or an on-ward journey ticket. The 30-day stamp can be extended for 7 days at the Thai immigration office on or before its expiration date. A corresponding government fee is charged to complete the procedure.
Another visa obtained in Thailand is the ‘Visa on Arrival’. This visa applies to certain nationalities such as Indian and Chinese, those nationalities which are not qualified under the Visa exemption Scheme.

The visa is valid for 15 days.
