NOTE FOR FREQUENT TRAVELERS :
The best option for frequent travelers is to apply for a multiple re- entry permit , so that you won't have to worry about getting a re-entry permit ever y time you take a trip. 


However, the re-entry permit doesn't work like multiple entry visa. It's only for 90 days, the expiration date is the same date as that from you first entry stamp. So after 90 days you have to extend your stay in Thailand and repeat this proccess again. When you are coming back to Thailand, the "visa number" on the arrival/departure card is now your re-entry permit number.To be on the Safe Side, before taking any trip abroad, it is advisable to inform the coordinator of your host faculty/program about your trip.
