Where to get Re-Entry Permit at Suvarnabhumi Airport


UPDATE: They have now closed this office. You need to get the re-entry permit from the hall where you queue up to have your passport stamped. As this is after security check, you won’t be able to get the permit if you are not flying the same day. Cost of re-entry is 1,200 Baht for single. No need to bring photo. It is open 24 hours.

    You go inside international departures 2 (4 floor), you pass the security check and then get in line.
    No need to bring your photo or copy of the passport, now they have a system.
    You do need to check in first because you need your boarding passes to get into international departures 2.
    The process will take you 20 minutes depending of the number of people.

    I confused from the article because of below points.
    1- you won’t be able to get the permit if you are not flying the same day.

    2-This means that you can get a re-entry permit here even if you are not flying.

    Does point 2 is the updated??

    My group has 10 passengers, we arrive at Suvarnabhumi airport, but after 2 days we continue overland to Cambodia and then they go back to Thailand. Is it possible to immediately upon arrival at the airport Suvarnabhumi get re-entry seals?

      Are you arriving with a visa? A multiple entry or single entry visa? Or visa exemption stamp? and no, you cannot get re-entry permit at the airport as it is only for people flying out.

    Is it still in the same place as of Feb 2017 or has it moved again?

    Can I get a re-entry permit at the Airport as well for my non-immigrant (business visa)?

        Thanks Richard.

        Just wondering at Suvarnabhumi Airport, could they issue any official receipt after paying for the multiple re-entry permit?

          they don’t give multiple entry…only single re-entry. If you want multiple you may go to the nearest immigration where you stay at.

      They cost 1,000 Baht for single re-entry.

        Even if I already hold a multiple entry visa?

    I believe a multiple re-entry permit is 3,000 Baht. Ask at Immigration if you. We’d to get one.

      I already hold a multiple entry non-o visa. I understand I need the re entry permit but query if I still need to pay the 1000bht fee? Ah well T.I.T

        Normally tourists with a multiple entry visa do not need to buy a re-entry permit. People like myself with a one year visa need one so that we can come back in and continue with the same visa. If you fly in and out often then it makes sense to get a multiple re-entry.

        In your case I would advise you ask them if you need a re-entry permit.

        Suvarnabhumi website shows only open 5:00AM 12:00AM so not 24 hours/day. Which is correct, the Suvarnabhumi website and the sign at the airport or 24 hours?

          Times change all the time for businesses. I personally don’t trust them to be open as I don’t want to risk losing my visa and work permit. When I fly abroad I always get a re-entry at my local Immigration office.

      You only need a re-entry if you’re on a long term visa and want to keep it. You can get at International airports.

        Hey Richard! First of all i just wanted to thank you, i had to travel in a short notice and remembered that i need to apply for re-entry for the student VISA. Leaving 8am on the 17th and sadly don’t have time tomorrow to get the VISA from an office.

        I know you’ve clarified this to the point where it really shouldn’t be any doubt left and i’m sorry for asking the same things you’ve already answered so if you don’t mind:

        1. Will i need to fill out a tm8 for the permit?

        2. if so, is it worth filling out before getting there or is the process pretty quick anyways? ( don’t have easy access to a printer right now ).

        Thanks a lot for the answers you’ve given mate, you’ll forever be known as the savior of poor planers for me.

          It costs a little more to do the re-entry at the airport because they also take your photo for you. There is no need to fill out anything in advance. Good luck!

    Hi Richard,
    I have a retirement visa and currently no re-entry permits.
    Can I still get a single re-entry from Suvarnabhumi (after check-in) as you mention above, or does this only apply for work visas?
    You also mention that you do not trust the airport service an always go to your local immigration office. Does this only apply to the 8.30 – 12.00 office option (before check-in)?
    Many thanks.

      The counter for the re-entry permit has been moved back to the Immigration hall again. This is for everyone. It is only my opinion that I prefer to get the re-entry in advance at my local Immigration office. Others have no reservations about getting it at the airport.
