Flying back in Vs land crossing

Hi All,

If I want to extend my standard 30 day visa on a Uk passport, If I leave the country then Fly back would that give me another 30 days? Vs a land crossing giving me only a 15 day extention.

I will be doing my proposed run/flight from Chaing Mai.

Any good advice is very much appreciated.

Cheers, Michael.

UK passport holders get 30 days when crossing by land as and air, the rule changed around November last year.

Mae Sai seems to be a popular choice for a border run. Don't forget that getting a tourist visa before you travel will give you a 60 day stay without having to leave the country.

A 60 day tourist visa cost you 25 pound. A visa run costs you gas or bus fare, a full day of travel and either 500 baht or US$10 Myanmar entry fee. As gippy suggested look into thd visa and enjoy another day jn Chiang Mai. But then if you are already here ....
