  1. Een toerist zonder visum mag binnen een tijdsbestek van een half jaar in totaal 90 dagen in Thailand verblijven. Daarna moet hij 3 maanden wegblijven of binnen komen met een toeristenvisum. MET visum mag men net zo vaak Thailand binnenkomen als men wil.

    Informatie over Briefstembureau op de Nederlandse Ambassade in Bangkok voor kiesgerechtigde Nederlanders binnen het ressort (Thailand, Cambodja, Laos, Myanmar). Meer informatie over stemmen in het buitenland:

  2. If you are planning to stay longer in Thailand. May be you want to get yourself a Thai driver licence. This is how to do it:
    1. get a residence address certificat from embassy; work permit or immigration office.
    2. go to immigration office and you pay for a residence certifcate. With that paper you go to transport departement. 300THB
    3. bring passport with visa.
    4. bring copy of passport fotopage & copy of passport visa page 10THB
    5. get a doctors report (not older than 1 month) 300THB
    6. Bring your international driver license with translation in English (Dutchmen get this at ANWB). According to Convention on international road traffic of 19 september 1968, 1949.
    7. pay 505THB at registration desk
    8. pay 110THB at the card supply desk
    now you have a Thai driver license for 1 year. Next time it can be for 5 years.
