VISA Run Information
Arriving With a VISA
At Tiger Muay Thai we have two forms of documentation to help you obtain a long-term VISA; standard forms which are good for trips under 3 months, or a personalized invitation letter for trips exceeding 3 months, for a maximum of 1 year. To obtain the proper VISA invitation documents please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your length of stay, nationality and the country you will be applying in for more information. If you would like to apply for a 3+ month visa please also attach a photocopy of your passport.
Once you have received the correct forms you can mail or take them to your local Thai embassy with your passport and any other documentation they require. You will usually receive your passport with travel VISA 24 hours – 1 week upon submission.
Arriving Without a VISA
If you are staying in Thailand for 35 days or less you will usually not need a travel VISA unless arriving by land/boat, or stated otherwise by your embassy. Tourists receive an automatic 30 day stamp upon arrival which can be extended for up to 1 week locally. If you are planning on staying in Thailand for more than 1 month without applying for a VISA from a Thai embassy in your home country, you will need to renew your VISA by leaving and re-entering Thailand.
IF YOU ARRIVE IN THAILAND BY BUS, CAR OR BOAT you will only receive a 15 day entry stamp.
IF YOU ARRIVE IN THAILAND BY PLANE you will receive a 30 day entry stamp.
Both stamps can be extended for a maximum of 1 week @ 1900 Baht at Phuket Immigration.
Our students who need to extend their VISAS leave Thailand every 15 days to 3 months. The fastest trip you can take is to Burma (Myanmar) where you will be given a 15 day entry stamp to return to Thailand, and you can repeat this trip an unlimited amount of times.
Most of our students prefer to take an organized bus trip to Penang, Malaysia, which includes all transportation, meals and a hotel room for 1 night. The trip takes two days. In Penang you can apply for a 2 month tourist visa, and after your 2 months you can extend for an additional 30 days at Phuket Immigration (15 minutes from the camp). The extension is 1900 Baht and allows you to stay in Thailand for a total of 3 months.
The same visa can be applied for in other areas of Malaysia such as Kuala Lumpur and Kota Bharu.
Our office staff can help book your visa run and make travel suggestions if you want to sightsee while you are away.
***The penalty of overstay in Thailand past your exit date is 500 Baht per day***
***Please remember to bring your passport, all identification, and paperwork when you make a VISA run***
***If you have already arrived at the camp and are trying to figure out your current situation, please visit the front office with your passport and paperwork to ask for help.***

Taxi or Tuk-Tuk
Tiger Muay Thai has taxis on call and they usually arrive within 15 minutes. They offer set rates to different areas of Phuket and a list of prices are posted in the office. When guests are out and about, some choose to ride Tuk-Tuks which are small open-air vehicles that seat 4-5 people. It is important to always negotiate a fare clearly before departure. Tuk-Tuk’s are easy and convenient, but the prices can be high if not properly negotiated.
Our training camp is centrally located in Chalong. We are approximately 4-5 kilometers from several of Phuket’s best beaches, however we are close to the pier and marina in Chalong and entertainment like boating trips, the Phuket Shooting Range, Paint Ball Fight Zone, diving and scuba instruction, elephant rides, ATV course, detox spas, the Chalong Buddhist Temple, and mountain-top lookouts.
