A German language newspaper called "Der Farang" writes, that from now on foreigners of 49 countries can prolong their at arrival stamped in Visa at any immigration office for another 30 days. So the visa on arrival now can be used for 60 day trips, no more visa runs for 5-6 week trippers like me.
The costs are Baht 1.900 and of course you have to go to the immigration and spend some time there.
The "old" 60 day visa I usually get from the Munich consulate costs me about Baht 1.200. And I don't need to go to the immigration...
So for me nothing will change, I'll still get my visa in Munich. The German lady who runs the Thai consulate in Muich is well organized.
If I send in my passport by postal service on Monday, I'll have it back incl. the visa on Wednesday.
Still maybe an option if travel plans change.
