COE/ Flight Booking Details:
In case of visiting Thailand under a Short term visa, (Tourist Visa or Visa Exemption Scheme), Make Sure that you have a Booked return Flight within the Visa Validity Duration.
- Visa Validity Duration for Tourist Visa: 60 Days (After arriving Thailand you can change your Ticket in case you are planning to Extend your Stay for an additional 30 Days).
- Visa Validity Duration for Visa Exemption: 45 Days (After Arriving Thailand, you can change your ticket in case you are going to Extend your Stay, for additional 30 Days)
In case of Arriving Thailand with a Long Term Visa (Non Immigrant B, Retirement Visa, Marriage Visa,.. Etc),
the insurance becomes the tricky part.
If you are coming with one way Ticket, The Insurance will have to cover you during the Whole Visa Validity Period. (Only few Embassies can Accept 90 Days in That case, but most of them require an Eligible insurance covering the whole Visa Validity duration).
The Above mentioned Points regarding the Insurance and the Flight, are the most common mistakes that people do while applying for their COEs.
