      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

Visa free travel for Thai citizens

Recommended Posts

sakuratravel

I’m planning to visit some friends in Japan this year and thought about bringing a Thai friend along. As far as I know, Thai citizens can get a 15-day visa on arrival in Japan. But since my friend is 17 years old, another Thai friend of mine said that it would not be possible to travel abroad under the age of 21 (!) without being accompanied by a parent or a guardian.

 

I contacted the airline (in Thailand), and they confirmed that Thai citizens can stay up to 15 days in Japan and, concering the age, it was okay to travel under the age of 18 as long as you travel with someone above that age (I’m 22, so I should qualify), and the co-traveller didn’t have to be a parent. My Thai friend dismissed this, with familiar Thai cynicism, saying that the airline ”Doesn’t care. They only want to sell tickets.” Could that be correct? I certainly think he’s wrong about having to be 21. But could 18 be correct? And wouldn’t it at least be possible with written parental consent?

 

My friends in Japan say that it will be okay for a 17 year old to travel to Japan without a parent. But what about Thai Law? Does anyone have a similar experience?

If I were you, I would call Thai immigration and Japan's embassy in BKK. You'd get the correct info. But then again the question about this friendship may come up.....

Your friend is wrong his mistake is that a Thai under the age of 21 needs parents permission to get a passport and can then travel under the age of 21
I went thru this with my TGF for a trip to the UK

If an airline says that it is OK you are probably good to go as they are liable to look after the passenger should they ignore some law.

Never trust a Thai's advice if it is not associated with something that they work with. Even if they do work in the area be cynical of the advice until you decide that they are competent.

Ain't that the truth.

The wife and I, different surnames on passport, took her sons, 12 & 14 years old with their father's surname on passport, and her sister's daughter, 13 and yet another surname, to Indonesia on holiday and immigration did not bat an eyelid.

There was a bit of messing around getting the passports due to dead and absent fathers but solved without too many problems.
