Visa on Arrival Question

We are travelling from Vancouver to Thailand (arr Chiang Mai) in mid February for 3 1/2 weeks. I understand there is a visa on arrival fee of 1900 Baht. On day 13 of our trip we will fly from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia for three days and then back to Phuket (via Bangkok) for our last week in Thailand. My question is, will we need to pay this fee again when we fly back into Bangkok or will the initial fee for a 30 day stay cover this?

Hoping someone will be able to advise.

Thanks very much.

If you have a Canadian passport the Visa On Arrival does not apply to you. You will receive a free 30 day visa waiver stamp each time you enter Thailand by air. (If you enter overland you'll only get 15 days).

Thank you very much. I had read the info in this Thai Embassy link and assumed it applied to us.

Before you go TigsGirl.

A passport photo (of yourself) and $20 US will get you a visa on arrival when you touchdown in Siem Reap, no problem.

www.thaiembassy.com is not an official website, it is a law firm that offers visa services.

To get the correct information use the Ministry of Foreigner Affairs website ( http://www.mfa.go.th/main/en/services/123 ) or the Thai Embassy in Canada ( www.thaiembassy.ca/en/visiting-thailand/visas ). There is also a Consulate in Vancouver ( http://www.thaicongenvancouver.org/ )

For other countries, try googling for the "Royal Thai Embassy yourcountry", then make sure you click through to links specifically saying Royal Thai Embassy or Royal Thai Consulate. There are too many visa firms with misleading domain names.
