    There is NO official rule about the length of time a person is required to stay out of the country holding a valid multi-entry visa to thailand of ANY type when they are activating a new entry.

    Now if you're talkin' about the southern border crossings with Malaysia, they are a fiefdom of their own. They make up imaginary rules and buffalo people into thinking that's the rule..

    Up Bangkok way, the border at Aranyaphrathet - Poipet (Cambodia) is the same way. They're telling people at that crossing they can't "border-bounce" to activate another entry on their visa without staying out of thailand 24 hours.

    It has nothing to do with people who are border-bouncing for a visa exempt entry stamp. Especially seeing as the new rule only allows TWO visa exempt entries by any land border in a calendar year.

    It is an attempted shakedown plain and simple.

    Thanks for that. Yep, southern border with Malaysia.

    When I do my 90 day exit on my 1 year Non-Immigrant O multiple entry visa, I just drive the 50 kms to Nong Kai, go across into Lao and loop around and come right back into Thailand. The entire process of obtaining a Lao visa, taking the bus across the bridge, turning around and exiting Lao back into Thailand takes me about 45 minutes depending on the number of people traveling the Friendship Bridge.

    I have been doing this process for several years and never a word from either side as long as I fill out the paperwork properly.
