We are travelling in early January from England to Bangkok

Resolved Question:

We are travelling in early January from England to Bangkok and onto Kuala Lumpar and then Langkawi, staying overnight in Langkawi and then onto Ko Lipe working our way back up to Krabi, departing 30th January. I had assumed on arrival at bangkok I would get a short stay visa but on checking my passport I see that they check you out. Will I have a problem, we are only staying one night on Langkawi.

Thank you.

If entering Thailand by air, you will be stamped 30 days visa and if by road (through a land border), you will get 15 days visa each time you enter the country.

When entering Malaysia, you will get 3 months stay each time.

So, you should be fine with your upcoming trip.

All the best

I was a littlke concerned about getting back into Tailand as the visa will be stamped with departed and when I come to return I wondered if the customs would query it.

No, you should be fine as you will have proof of travel bookings. As long as you are not doing anything illegal, you have nothing to worry about.
