Can I leave Thailand and return – what is needed?

Q: I am a Somalian and I came to Thailand with a single-entry business visa. Now, I need to go to Nepal for an emergency meeting for several days and I plan on coming back to Thailand as I still have some stuff to do here. Do I need to get another visa?

No, you don’t need another visa. However, you would have to secure a RE-ENTRY PERMIT before leaving for Singapore at the Thai Immigration Office so that your visa will not be cancelled when you leave Thailand. The re-entry permit fee is THB 1,000.
