Tourist Visa Question

Recommended Posts


I'm a US citizen returning to Thailand for a long holiday. I've recently received a 60-day tourist visa that has to be used before March 24th. Upon arrival at Swampy Int'l airport I want immigration to only issue me the 30-day visa exempt stamp and not use my tourist visa. Reason being is that I plan on leaving the country for a side trip within 30 days. And upon my return from the sidetrip to Thailand I want to use my 60-day tourist visa. Has anyone run into problems at the airport with immigration trying to do this? Or is there any procedure or protocol for doing this? I guess what the gist of it is " will immigration force me into using the tourist visa since it is afixed to my passport" or make a big deal about me trying to get a 30-day stamp instead. Is there a rule for this?

Any help appreciated, Thanx
