    Did you read my post, Lao, no Thai visa, cross the border, how can they ban me if I had no visa in the first place.
    Cambodians. Laotians busted by the 100,000s every year, bused back to the border.
    Even my pink Thai ID card says, number 6 type , temporary reside, refugee or stateless person.

    If legal in Lao that's where I go, 30 km from home, no real border checks, no immigration here or in Lao, just a line on a map.

    Are you quoting the first digit of your pink card number?

    Shouldn't be a problem if you're using a Non-O multi entry.

    AFAIK they were only doing people with Non-Immigrant visas, and not those with a Multi Entry Tourist Visa or those looking to get a Visa-Exempt 30 day stamp, that's around a year ago. Could be open to all and sundry now.

    Anyway, doing it on a Non-O multi entry shouldn't be any kind of issue.

    ^ If near Don Muang, you might as well drive to Kanchanaburi. Should take about 2.5 hrs to the border from there (Border is around 60km away from town).

    960 baht for the ins and outs and should be done in under an hour.

    Turn the car around and stay in Kan for the evening sipping beer and head back in the morning after breakfast.

    Aliens have been doing border runs there for the last half a decade.

    Though there was a bit of a bruhaha among the tighter end of the border running clientele when they increased the price of the Burmese visa stamp and necessary transport fee for the 3 km trip between border posts from 700thb to 900thb around 4 years ago.

    Of course! I had lost my atm card and had a small problem with my new atm card (it needed to be registered to make purchases online) and so wasn't able to purchase a flight unless I just went to Don Muang and bought over the counter. I didn't really want to do that and I read about the border run to Ban Phu Nam Ron which isn't that far from Bangkok and asked you guys if it was do-able.
    So, I set off about 12.30ish after I topped off the radiator(water) and and tank with LPG. I went through Bang Len and Kamphaeng saen to Kanchanaburi. Some big hills to maneuver as I got close to the border, had some military checkpoints along the way I thought I had reached another when in fact I was at the stop-off place I needed to be.They had to remove some traffic cones to let me make a U-turn (google maps said I still had 6 more minutes to go!) so I could go back and park!

    I first paid a fee of 960 baht behind some buildings on the left and then walked out to the front and got stamped out of Thailand , after that a group of us boarded a van that drove us to I guess the other side?

    The driver parked by a shop selling cheap ciggies and alcohol and he collected the passports and took them to get stamped in and out of Myanmar. After 20 minutes we all boarded the van and headed back to the Thai side. No problems at all, I was back on the road about 4.30, I stopped in Kanchanaburi for some KFC and was home just after 7pm.
    I'm glad I did it and Thanks again to you and Luigi for your help in making the decision to go there.

    ^ I've done that border around 10 times now coming from Bangkok.

    Once stamped back in. I always spend a night in Kanchanaburi for a beer and food.

    Thanks for the write-up.

    You can pay over the counter at any 7/11 when you book Air Asia or Thai Airways flights. Probably any Thai airline.

    Yes, but I still hadn't had my card registered for online purchases and I needed this function in order to complete the booking.
    You can register your card only at an ATM machine after 6am BUT it takes an additional 24 hours for the bank to send a OTOP code via SMS, which I don't think I have received yet.
    Trust me I looked for this feature on their website, it would've been so easy as I have done it in the past.
    But to be honest I am glad it worked out this way although stressful at the time, it was much better going to Ban Phun Nam Ron.

    I just renewed my Non O multi entry visa (based on marriage) at the Thai embassy in Singapore. No problems at all.

    Apply and upload supporting documents online, then once approved, submit said documents at the embassy one morning and collect the following day in the afternoon.

    I had a long chat with the boss woman at the embassy and asked her about online rumours about changes to the Non O mulity entry visa. She said as far as she knows there are no plans to change requirements for the Non O based on marriage... but didn't know what may happen to the Non O-A. My feeling was there may be more changes afoot for the retirement visa.

    Unfortunately, consular staff and immigration officers are like a pair of ambidextrous hands - or not - the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. And vice versa.
    Be careful out there...

    As a foreigner are you allowed to cross over at that office?

    Russians and South Africans are not permitted to cross at Phu Nam Ron.

    The ONLY changes to getting a Non-O visa (single or multi-entry) at Savannakhet are if your thai wife changed her surname to yours when you got married. If she did you will need to provide a signed copy of that green bordered form.

    Also, keep in mind that talking to a wing-nut in one thai consulate about what might or might not happen is worthless as tits on a bull. Each consulate is run as it's own entity and what one does the others don't have to do OR if they do they can ask for completely different documentation. (That's why you can only get a 90 day single entry Non-O based on marriage from the thai consulate in Vientiane BUT you can get a year-long, multi-entry from Savannakhet).

    Here's the requirements for getting a Non-O visa in Savannakhet
    NOTE; there is no advantage (as in NONE at all) to bring more documentation than what is required. it cuts no ice with the officers there.

    -the original rose bordered marriage certificate
    copies of:
    -front&back of the rose bordered marriage certificate
    -front&back of your thai spouse's i/d card
    -thai spouse's house book listing
    -data page of your passport
    -lao visa & entry stamp

    you also need 2 passport sized photos,a filled out application along with 5000baht.

    Your thai spouse signs the things with their name on them, you sign the things with yours <- meaning you BOTH sign the marriage certificate copies

    NOTE: if your thai wife changed her name (took your surname when she got married OR after that) you need the certificate stating she changed her name too..

    Isn't it the same deal in Ho Chi Minh nowadays?

    Though possibly without the name change doc.

    HCMC requires a letter from your thai wife addressed to the consulate asking they issue you the visa (it can be in thai or english, typed or hand written) AND remember the thai consulates in Vietnam ONLY accept US dollars in near pristine condition. A year long, multi-entry Non-O at HCMC is 200USD
