Koh Phangan visa information.
As a foreigner in Thailand we (nearly) all have one thing in common, we need a Thai visa. This can be an easy process and sometimes it can produce problems. Hopefully it will be the former for you. In any case, not to worry, problems are solveable almost universally. Phangan Business and Visa Co. are here to help solve your visa and beaurocratic problems.
For many visitors to Thailand they will need to make an important ‘visa run’ to either Penang, or Kota Bahru. Both are in neighbouring Malaysia. Arguably being the most organised of our local neighbours this should help our visa quest. And with the current status of being the only places to issue 1 year multiple entry business visas this could well be your next destination. However, all types of visas may be obtained from these locations – tourist, retirement, marriage, etc.
As you can see below, a land trip to Penang can be quiet an ordeal. If you have your own car it is infinitely more comfortable of course. For those that do not have their own car their are bus, minibus, train, and also flight options.
Both Koh Phangan and Koh Samui have organised minibus visa trip services and there are also cheap flights from Surathani on the mainland to Penang or Kota Bahru via Kuala Lumpur. For the well heeled there are also more expensive flights from Koh Samui airport if time is more of an issue than money.
In order to help you plan your own timing of your visa applications we have listed holiday (closure) dates of both aforementioned Consulates below.
