newsite12 2 Posted February 7, 2011 Share Posted February 7, 2011 (edited) I have started this new thread rather than stick it on the end of the Vientane Double Visa: Three Strikes And You'Re Out! thread. If I stick it on the end of the original thread... many people will not see this info, and everyone concerned ought to read this... My Thai girlfrind has just got off the phone to the Thai embassy in Vientiane. According to them, there is NO rule in force at that embassy saying 3 strikes and you are out... They said that if you ring them up before making the trip and tell them exactly what the status of your past visas in your passport, they will tell you to either come up or don't bother. The exact details of the double entry restrictions are 3 in a rolling 12 month period. If your last 3 double entries extend beyond 12 months, then you are entitled to another one. When you call, you must get the person's name who you talk to and make sure that they take a record of your name and passport number. This will ensure that you will be given one and your trip is NOT wasted. This is of course only applicable if they said you are clear to come. Just make sure you get the extensions and you will always qualify. They also said that the rules are expected to change again next month and they will probably be told to stop counting stamps. Jusr editing to add the phone number... here you go. Thai Embassy, Vientiane +85621415337 Edited February 7, 2011 by newsite12 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
