(CTN News) – Thailand is a famous tourist destination thanks to its tropical beaches, rich royal palaces, and other attractions.

What is the Thailand Tourist Visa?
A Thailand Tourist Visa is a stamp or document inserted into your passport. It is required to enter Thailand for tourism. It is issued by a Thai embassy or consulate in your country and is stamped in your passport when you arrive at Thailand’s airport.
If you want to stay in Thailand longer, you can extend your tourist visa. The tourist visa is not to be confused with the Visa Exemption stamp granted at the airport.
Foreigners who intend to visit Thailand for tourism can obtain both multiple-entry and single-entry tourist visas.
Tourist Visa Extension in Thailand
If you enter Thailand via airport or land border, you will be granted a 60-day stay at the immigration post. You must leave the country before the stamp’s expiration date.
If you want to stay in Thailand longer, you can extend your stay permission. You can request an extension of your stay at your local Immigration Office. A 60-day tourist visa can be extended for an additional 30 days. The cost of both additions is 1900 baht.
Remember that an extension of stay is at the discretion of the immigration officer reviewing your application.
