travel to bangkok and onward travel to krabi.visa questions.

good morning everyone.i am from india.

this is my first post here and i am sure i will find answers to all my questions here.

i am going for honeymoon for a week to bangkok and krabi.this is my first international tour so pardon me if some of my questions seem silly.

these are my questions.

1)my flight lands at 6.50am at bangkok and flight to krabi is at 9.15am.

is this enough to get visa on arrival.

2) i read different figures regarding visa fees and money to be shown.can someone please tell me how much will be the charges and how much will i have to show them in cash.

3)is it allowed to get visa on arrival at krabi or i need to get it done at bangkok itself.

4)what would be better.carrying money in usd and exchange there or baht.

5)i have booked the onward flight to krabi together with the bangkok one.do i need to get my luggage and carry it to the next counter or the airport authorities do it themselves.

thank you very much for patient reading.

thank you veyr much for the link.

i read the heading and assumed it is about getting visa in advance.

but i have no time for that as i am getting married in 4 days and then fly in a week.

hence i prefered visa on arrival.

It seems that you are taking Thai Airways flight and you will land at Suvrnabhumi Airport (Bangkok has 2 airports). I am sure that you will be having a ticket upto Krabi on same airline. If what I write is correct, then your VoA and Immegration will be at Bangkok and you will get luggage at Kabi.

# Better to keep Baht 1000 each person, from India itself. (exchange bank is also available at airport)

# Keep VoA form fully filled up. Download VoA form from here

# Go for fast track visa if you feel you are delayed. Baht 1200.

Important:

The authority is very strict with photo now a days. make sure that you have the appropriate sized photo.

You should make it if all goes well.

Reading showing them the money, show them some US $ & credit card, if he asks.

Pl check with the airline. As far as I know from my personal experience, if you are taking VOA, they will not allow through check in of baggage to Krabi. Thai airways allow through check in if you are taking VOA. In such case, after VOA you'll have to collect the baggage and check in again.

For money it is best to carry USD and convert them there.

Its 1000baht for VOA or 1200baht for fast tract VOA per person

You need to be able to show 20,000baht per family for proof of funds if asked. So 20,000baht for you and your wife. This is not always asked for but if it is and you cant show funds you will be denied entry into Thailand.

Have a read through this, every question abot VOA that a Indian could ask has been answered here.

BTW, Sandeep, In Mumbai it takes only 24 hrs to get the Thai visa without any hassels. And it costs about INR 2185. Then you can travel without any worries. In Mumbai it is issued by Cox & Kings (CKGS) from their office at Nariman Pt.. Read through their website and carry the documents as required.

Enjoy your trip !!
