Extension of a tourist visa?

+1 vote

Hi, I will be visiting a friend in Bangkok for 3 months next year. Seing that I can only apply for a 2 month visa, and then extend it for the 3rd month while I am there, can I buy my return flight tickets from South Africa and back to span the whole 3 months? Or would this ticket offend the Thai authorities when I apply for my 2 month visa, assuming I will be granted the extra month? I would really like some assistance, please, if anyone can help?

You will be fine. If asked at immigration just say you are travelling out of Thailand in the third month and they won't give you a hassle. You can extend your visa usually no problem for the extra 30 days once in Thailand. Enjoy
