Visa extension needed?


If fly into and out of Bangkok but leave Thailand for -

at least12 days ( go to cambodia/ vietnam then re enter thailand) of a 42 day trip is my 30 day visa sufficient as a US citizen or do I need an extension?

this has been gone over many times before

you do not get a visa you get a 30 day visa exemption say for your trip you fly into BKK stay for 20 days then

leave for 12 days when you come back you would get another 30 day visa exemption.

You will need proof of onward travel within 30 days. I believe an airline ticket is the only acceptable form of proof, otherwise the airline taking you to Thailand may/will refuse to let you board.

Safe and happy travel

Every time you enter Thailand you will get a new immigration stamp of 30 days of stay.
