Here is a list of 6 things you must know before going to Thailand if you are going on visa on arrival.

6 Things You Must Know Before Going to Thailand on Visa on Arrival

5 Lessons I have learnt from my last Thailand trip

My 6 Day Thailand Trip Budget- March 2018

1. Currency Exchange.

It’s a rule that for visa on arrival in Thailand, you need to carry minimum 10,000 Thai Bahts. In most cases, they don’t check it, but why take risk? Sometimes, the immigration police suspects first time visitors and perform a sudden and random inspection upon just getting down from the flight. They may ask you to show documents, passport, cash, tickets, etc. So, be prepared and don’t take a chance.


2. Must Have A Return Ticket

When you are planning to visit Thailand you must have your return ticket done because at the boarding counter of the departure flight in India they will ask you the return ticket and also when at the visa on arrival counter. The return ticket is a must for visa purpose and you will be denied on arrival visa in case of no return ticket. So better to have a return ticket done at the earliest.

What if your passport is lost abroad?

How to clear immigration if your English is weak?

Visas which are now easier to apply and get for Indians

3. Passport Size Photo

Be careful about the passport size photo because they require special specifications for the photo. The photo must be of white background, 80% face area, clear and must be a coloured photo , further the photo must not have any border. In the visa form, size mentioned is 6c×4

4. Pre-Download the VOA Form

And the fourth one is you can download the visa on arrival form from their website. It will save your time at the airport and prevent the harassment of being in long queues at the airport.

5. Keep Safe the Arrival-Departure Card

When you are in flight to Bangkok or Thailand you will be given arrival departure card in the flight and it has two parts, one part will be submitted at the immigration counter and the second part which you will have to keep safely till your exit from Thailand. Do not miss this slip or the arrival card otherwise you will be in a great problem while exiting from Thailand.

6. Don’t Overstay!

Don’t overstay in Thailand otherwise be ready to pay a fine of Rs 2000 per day. Take the permission form Royal Thai Embassy if necessary. Thailand visa on arrival permits you to stay upto 15 days only. If you need to stay even more, apply for pre visa from Thai Embassy located in your country.

क्या थाईलैंड में सेक्स टूरिज्म या देह व्यापार क़ानूनी है? Is sex tourism legal in Thailand?

थाईलैंड टूरिज्म: एक नजर दोस्तों जैसा की आप यह भली भांति जानते हैं की थाईलैंड tourism दुनिया भर में काफी लोकप्रिय है जिसका प्रमुख कारण वहां का sex tourism या देह व्यापार है। थाईलैंड में घूमने के लिए तो बहुत सारी चीजें हैं- जैसे खूबसूरत sea beaches, मंदिर, पुराने स्मारक या historical monuments वगैरह। लेकिन फिर भी ऐसा माना जाता है की मुख्यतः लोग वहां जिस चीज के लिए जाते हैं वो sex tourism ही है, बाकी सभी चीजें secondary है या उतने important नहीं हैं। थाईलैंड यात्रा: कोलकाता से बैंकाक (Thailand Trip: Kolkata to Bangkok) बैंकाक से पटाया (Bangkok to Pattaya) पटाया की एक शाम और कोरल द्वीप की सैर (Walking Street and Coral Island, Pattaya) बैंकाक शहर- वाट फ़ो और वाट अरुण (Bangkok City: Wat Pho and Wat Arun) Buy Thailand 4G SIM(Siam Center, BKK or DMK Airport Pick Up) कुछ लोग ऐसे भी कहते मिलेंगे की एक बार थाईलैंड जाने के बाद character certificate बनवाना पड़ेगा क्योंकि वहां जाने का मतलब है चरित्र में दाग लगना ! वैसे ये कुछ conservative या पुराने ख्यालात वाले लोग ही कह सकते हैं, क्यों

Top 4 waterfalls of Jharkhand- Hundru, Dassam, Hirni and Jonha

When the word ‘Jharkhand’ comes in our mind, we think forest, greenery, hills, valley, rivers etc. Jharkhand is such a state in our country which is very rich in mines and minerals, flora and fauna, but unfortunately, due to whatever reason, tourism has not sprouted here like other Indian states. This is still a tourist deficient region but in no way it ever means that it has not the capability to attract the mass. Jharkhand has almost every package that any traveler needs, it has a lot of possibilities in tourism. Jharkhand has got everything from the mother nature, but lacks only the fundamental and infrastructural development.   Hills and Valleys of Jharkhand- Parasnath, Netarhat, Dalma and Kiriburu. Panchghagh Falls: The safest waterfall near Khunti-Ranchi in Jharkhand  As I have already mentioned that Jharkhand has everything- hills, waterfalls, valley, rivers, but this post will be dedicated to the waterfalls of Jharkhand. This Indian state is fully a plateau landscape. In the ra
