    Well, I am feeling sorry for those coming from a poor country and going to Thailand for a job, but I don't think it is the case of 99.9% of the people here.

    So what's the deal in bringing up this topic in here?

    It is also forbidden to have sex with girls below a certain age, do you want to open a debate on this, then?

    Or forbidden to bring or detain drug, will you open a thread on it?

    What's thai visa? Another forum as this one. Get real, please. Word of mouth builds fish from 4 inches to a barracuda.

    That's been a requirement in most countries for many years. I was working in Malaysia in the mid ninties and prior to getting a work permit I flew back to Aus on a return from KL. When I went to leave Aus again they asked me if I had an onwards ticket. Luckly I had a ticket to Bangkok, I was planning a business trip there, so it wasn't a problem.

    It's the airlines who ask because if you are refused entry for not having a return ticket / visa then they have to absord the cost and the hassles. Not every country enforces this but they have the right to.

    IMO the farang beggars are going to beg either way. It is a bohemian lifestyle choice for them even if they have money in their pocket. Sad.

    Having sufficient funds to support yourself while in Thailand is an entry requirement. It is infrequently enforced. Mostly at land crossings and less so at airports. I would think a credit card would do the trick if asked.

    Thai immigration officials may also ask for your onward / return ticket if entering at an airport. I once had Thai Airlines ask me before letting be board at FRA because I was traveling on one-way tickets.

    I haven't tried either of these suggestions below yet but definitely will try soon:
    1. go inside the bank to a human bank teller to avoid the Thai ATM fee (200-250 baht) completely. The bigger bonus is there is no withdrawal limit.
    2. Wire transfer money to yourself. My require a bit of calculating but may be cheaper to use a money exchange and pay their fee than to pay both an ATM fee along with another higher ridiculous fee from your home bank (for those who are not lucky enough to be from the US and have a Charles Schwab account). No Thai banks are on the global ATM system.
    Any other suggestions that could save me at least $20 per week would be much appreciated.
    I'm sure you know to bring some cash. Of course it depends on how much you feel comfortable carrying / plus safety issue using the room safes, etc. Everyone has different opinions on this. In regards to going inside the bank, be careful. I did it once as a test and my bank at home charged me a fee. I contacted the USA Bank and explained that I was using my debit card to withdraw money from my account because the ATM didn't work. For this 'one time' they refunded me the fee. Be warned about your bank's fees.

    Wire t-fers also cost. Can be up to $30 USD. So I would avoid that option.

    Read up on Thai Consulate, Visas

My biggest worry is not being allowed in the country with a return date that far out. Is that something I should be concerned a out?
    Thank you for any advice.
    Check the Consulate for your home country. Easy to read and stay times are listed along with costs for visas. FYI, you can not get a 60 day extension. Only 30 day extensions for 1900 baht.

    I would think that this would only be nationals of some countries who they think will overstay and work illegally. I doubt anyone coming from the US, Australia, etc. Would even get asked. I never have been. I've never seen anyone turned away for not having sufficient cash, but that's not to say it hasn't happened, I jst haven't noticed / seen it.

    Really? I'd only just noticed them on my last trip. That's not to say they weren't there, I just may not have seen the. I do travel extensively, around 10 months of the years to lots of places and I do tend to zone out a bit in long queues at airports, that may explain why I didn't see them.

    After researching the web I see that Japan bans a lot of these drugs even with legal prescriptions and Thailand requires you to fill out forms prior to arriving.
    I've got one doctor willing to write me a letter but she doesn't prescribe the valium. So basically I would have a different doctor's name on the letter than what is on the bottle label.
    Will I be searched in Japan on my short layover. Any recommendations ? ...Thanks.
    You should be fine with just a layover. I know in Tokyo you go through a quick security screening again when going to the connections area. This is for your carry-on bag, laptop, etc.

    Just carry the prescription and keep it with the pills. Alternatively, you can put them in your checked bag if you have one.

    As for Thailand, I carried some xanax back and forth to and from the States many times. No problem and no forms. (Great for sleeping on the long flight).

    Also bought some xanax (2 packs of 10 pills) in Saigon and carried it back to Thailand in my carry-on. No problem. You are only carrying 30 pills with a prescription, not a huge red flag.

    Such a nonsense can't be true.

    20000 baht if I stay 1 day?

    20000 baht if I stay 29 days?

    That is enough to show it can't be true.

    I have been traveling the world for short trips of 5-6 days and many times I nevertheless changed any money in local currency, for instance.

    Why should it better to have baht? Are they planning to close the country exchange booths?

    Cash and not what is in my bank account? What I have in the bank is none of their business, so that is already another nonsense about this news.

    By the way, what is yor source?

    Which I immigration enforced this "rule"? Airport? Ground border with Myanmar? Laos? Malaysia?

    I would be cautious to write these posts if there is no ground to it.
