Multiple entry visa for ThailandMe and my friend (from India) are planning for a short trip to Thailand & Cambodia in the first week of August. We will be landing in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport and will be leaving Thailand by train / road to Cambodia via Aranyaprathet / Poipet land border crossing after three days. Again we will be entering Thailand by road similarly after a weeks time and will be flying out of Bangkok the next day.
I was told that there are normal / express visa on arrivals at Bangkok airport. Can any one help me in finding out the following:
a) As our stay is only for a short period - less than 15 days in Thailand, are we required to buy a tourist visa or transit visa
b) Is multiple entry allowed in Transit visa & Tourist visa respectively? Or there is a special fee for the same or should I take two seperate visas in either case.
c) Is it advisable to get the visas in India or can take on arrival - I am not sure whether multiple entry visa for transit / tourist are issued at Bangkok airport

2a) It doesn't matter if you stay for 1 day or 1 week, you still need a tourist visa or visa on arrival.
b) There are no multiple-entry VOAs. Each entry expires when you leave. Tourist visa (obtained in India) can be single or double entry at the discretion of your Thai embassy/consulate.
c) Indian nationals can get a VOA at Bangkok airport (which expires when you leave Thailand to Cambodia) but not sure about re-entry at Poipet border. I don't believe they do VOAs there so you would either need to fly back to Bangkok or get a tourist visa in advance.
