    Tourist Visas

    Single entry or Multiple entry? I normally apply for a 60-day, Single entry VISA at the Royal Thai Embassy, Washington D.C. The bank statement balance for a “TR†Single VISA is only $700, versus the $7,000 balance for a Multiple entry VISA cited above. I opened a Schwab acct and fund the acct with my anticipated spending for my Thailand trip, then use the Schwab debit card for withdrawals at ATMs in Thailand with the ATM fees reimbursed by Schwab. http://thaiembdc.org...as/category-tr/ 5. A copy of recent bank statement ($700 per person and $1,500 per family) (The name of the applicant must indicated clearly) , In case of submitting family bank statement a proof of relationship (i.e. birth certificate, marriage certificate) must be provided.

    Best Phone Service To Usa

    I agree with ZZZZ. I bought True Happy Tourist sims card from Tuk Com and 7/11 for 49 baht for my trips in 2013 and 2014. In 2013, I used only the 3bt/min rate without any problems for calls from Thailand to USA. In 2014, I am using the 1 bt/min rate without any problems and I cannot tell the difference between the two rates. In 2014, I bought 300 baht extra minutes and the sims card is good for 60 days. No problems so far on Thailand to USA calls. I have an old Samsung T309 clam shell type phone.
