Booking flights

Please specify the price of flights at the moment of booking. Due to fluctuations in fuel prices, etc, airlines reserve the right to change domestic and international flight prices at any time. Price increases can affect new tickets as well as those that have already been booked, but not yet issued. In order to avoid any possible problems, be sure to confirm payment and ticketing with your clients. Finally, please confirm ticket issue with us at the point of purchase. Clients in need of assistance for the purchase of domestic flights should be provided in advance.

Please note: names cannot be changed on either domestic or international tickets once they have been issued. The cancellation and rebooking of any flights, including those that have been rejected and redeemed by SAYAMA MICE, will lead to fines by the airlines, with repayment taking up to three months.

In addition, prices cannot be 100% verified until tickets have been issued, ie paid for. Standard procedure for the issue of flight tickets by SAYAMA MICE includes confirmation to company managers.

Visas and customs

Before entry into Thailand, ensure your clients carefully study the requirements of their home country. Though we can consult on the options available by request, we would remind you that SAYAMA MICE does not provide visa support for third country journeys. Should clients choose to combine a tour, they should be sure to learn the requirements of that country before their departure.

To leave the Kingdom of Thailand without incident, travelers must ensure a minimum six months validity remaining on their passport.

Citizens of countries Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US are allowed entry into Thailand for up to 30 days without a tourist visa.

Obtaining a visa on arrival

Citizens of Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, and China can apply for a 15-day visa upon arrival. Visas are issued at the counter labeled Visa on Arrival where the following are necessary:

  • passport — valid for a minimum of six months following departure from Thailand;
  • 1 3x4 cm photo — taken no earlier than six months prior to receipt of the visa;
  • photocopy of the return ticket — migration services will check the date of departure; a photocopy can be made at the airport or can be made in advance;

  • visa application — filled in by hand;
  • visa fee of 2,000 baht ($65) — payment may be made in Thai baht only.

Upon arrival, travelers must go through Passport and Customs control. Immigration cards are often distributed and can be filled out on the plane, or within Passport Control if travelers did not receive one during the flight. Please note that both the Arrival and Departure areas should be filled in. Border guards will remove and retain the section marked Arrival, while the section marked Departure should be kept safe and presented at Passport Control upon departure.

Travelers proceed to Customs Control upon obtaining their luggage, where a selective screening process takes place. Travelers should consult the Thai Customs Service prior to travel for the import of large amounts of money, expensive jewelry, or other specific items. Please note that the import of alcohol and tobacco products is strictly regulated.

For up-to-date information about the import of specific goods, go to the Thailand Customs Service (www.customs.go.th).
Please note:

  • The penalty for exceeding the allowed amount of alcohol and tobacco can be up to $800.

  • E-cigarettes have been banned in Thailand since 2014.

Travelers should be reminded that since 1 June 2007, it is forbidden to take any liquids of more than 100 ml/item on board. This includes perfume, deodorant, nail polish, lotion, water, alcoholic beverages, etc.

Arrival and departure

Travelers on international flights arriving to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport are welcomed at Exists B and C on the second level.

Those arriving on domestic flights – Exit A on the second level. Travelers with connecting flights within Thailand after arrival to Bangkok must pass through Passport and Customs control zones and may then continue to check-in in the domestic flights section.

In the case of any unforeseen difficulty, travelers should present their ticket to an airport employee who should be able to offer help or advice. Or, in the event of a real emergency, travelers can contact their SAYAMA MICE representative.

Please keep the SAYAMA MICE booking department (info@sayamamice.com) informed in the case of delays or changes to international departures. This is especially important when financial provisions, such as accommodation, meals, transfers, etc, related to the delayed flight, made at the expense of the traveler or agent, become an issue.

Hotel accommodation

Travelers arriving in the morning may check in after 14.00, with breakfast being served the following day. Though rare in high season, in the case that a free room may be available upon arrival, hotels reserve the right to check their guests in early. Should travelers choose to pay the daily rate for the night prior to their arrival, they are guaranteed check-in upon arrival and will be served breakfast. Check-out is at 12.00. Late check-outs will be penalized up to 50% of the cost of the room.

Please inform all SAYAMA MICE clients that each hotel requires a deposit for the mini-bar, phone calls, etc, upon check-in. In the case that they do not use these services, the deposit will be returned in full upon check-out. In addition, many hotels require a credit card to block a certain amount of funds as a deposit for the reasons stated above. Be advised that it may take up to four weeks for the funds to again become available.

It is important that all travelers are aware that conservative dress is required in Bangkok, both at the hotel as well as when out in the city. The style of dress suited to other seaside resorts is, in Thailand, considered inappropriate. An especially strict dress code is required when visiting places of worship as well as the Royal Palace. The shoulders, knees, and heels should be covered; thus shorts, mini-skirts, sleeveless clothing, and backless shoes are not acceptable.

Safety issues

  • Tourists should not, under any circumstances, purchase excursions or tours of any sort from people off the street, or even at the many local tourist offices offering tours at lower prices. These typically involve the use of old vehicles in rough shape, the absence or falsification of insurance or special licenses, guides who do not speak the appropriate language, a shortened tour, and so on. Recently, there has been an increase in police crackdowns as a result of these “cheap” tours, due to flare-ups with the guides, food poisonings, accidents, etc.

    In the case of injury or loss of property as a result of signing up to any such tours provided by unlicensed street vendors or unknown persons, neither SAYAMA MICE nor the designated insurance company will be able to assist in the resolution of the problem or compensation of damages.

  • Tourists must strictly adhere to the safety guidelines as dictated by the guide during a tour. This is especially important for the elderly, those who suffer from cardiovascular or other chronic diseases, overweight persons, and pregnant women. The hot and humid climate, as well as any undue stress, is likely to have an untoward effect on these high risk groups. In addition, tourists must be regularly reminded to keep an eye on their children at all times.
  • Car accidents due to drunk driving have become more and more common. As a result, the Thai government has issued a law that forbids the drinking of spirits, including beer, while physically in a moving vehicle. Coming into force on 8 August 2012, its provisions apply not only to drivers but passengers also.

    All violators may be imprisoned for up to six months or fined up to 10,000 baht (approximately $285).

    We would also strongly recommend that tourists not rent motorcycles. These are typically not insured and even minor accidents will not be covered by the insurance company.
