Stay in Thailand longer than 90 days with a visa run?Hello! I was planning on staying in Thailand for 100 days, but as I was applying for my visa I realized that it's more complicated than I thought. I know I can apply for a 60 day tourist visa and then extend it by 30 days, but would it be possible to re-enter Thailand through another country's border after those 90 days and stay for an additional 15?

5@4 actually, according to several moderators over on Thai Visa (including Lopburi3) this might have changed, and nowadays anyone applying and getting a TV will be stamped in for 60 days, not 30 or 60 as previously was the case.
Logically this would include the visa on arrival and the visa in any case crowd, to which #3 is alluding.
To add to this, there is even another category of citizens that are mutual visa exempt, such as The Lao, Vietnamese Russians and some others that do get 60 days TV and 30 days visa exempt regardless of how they enter the country :)
In this case, OP might consider a double entry TV, as that might work out cheaper than a Single (1000 baht, could be a bit more depending on where the TV is obtained) + 1900 baht extension + border run. A double would cost 2000 baht and this only needs a border run (which is needed in any case). This way OP also saves the time needed to get the extension. As said this depends on where the TV is optained, as the price per entry varies from country to country.

I'm sure you are more competent than I am but I wonder why "officialdom" (for once) is quite clear
"Nationals of countries which are on Thailand’s Tourist Visa Exemption list or have bilateral agreements on visa exemption with Thailand will be permitted to stay for a period of not exceeding 60 days. Nationals from other countries who hold a tourist visa will be permitted to stay in Thailand for a period of not exceeding 30 days".
To be honest, I stick with my original advice.
Moderators are all well and good but they are just human, my husband is a moderator on an another forum so I'm not impressed LOL
