Koh Samui Visa Run
Information about a Koh Samui Visa Run to the Malaysian border – near Satun in Thailand.
For those who stay long term in Thailand would know what a Visa Run is.
If you live on Koh Samui then this is what to expect on your Koh Samui Visa Run.
Depending on your visa type, you are required to leave the country every 90 days.
This will give you a stamp in your passport for another 60 days.
(Depending on your Visa)
If you arrive in Thailand on the 30 day visa, you can extend it at an Immigration office or you will need to leave the country and re-enter.
You can also fly to the closest neighbouring country, then that is the fastest and best option but the dearest.
If you want to save some money and go on an organised Visa Run then expect it to take up the whole day.

The ferry from Koh Samui leaves around 5am and travels across to the mainland where you will meet your bus driver.

You see the sun rise over the islands and feel the cool breeze of the morning.
Once you disembark, that is when the fun stops.

The driver normally drives as fast as possible and overtakes every thing on the road, while tooting at passing animals, to warn them not to cross the road.
The roads are not like a major highway either and you spend most of your time looking out the window to make sure the driver is doing the right things.
After 4 or so hours you arrive at the border of Malaysia near Satun.
The immigration offices and crossing area is very picturesque and this is where you get handed some ham rolls and a drink.

Once all your passports are stamped you now board the bus for a return trip much like the first.
You then board the ferry back to Koh Samui where you relax with the other people you met in the minivan.
You may want to have a few drinks to settle your nerves but there are not many toilet stops.
But with all the bitten nails and heartache out of the way, you are now guarantee another 2 months in Thailand
(Depending on your Visa).
You can extend your visa for another 30 days at the Koh Samui Immigration Office for 1900 thb
