Hi there - My Indian helper is flying to India from Hong Kong via BKK (few hours stopover) under two separate tickets (Cathay and Jet Airways) on the same day. The travel agent said that she may not need a Thai visa as she is just connecting but I checked with Cathay and they said that she may need a Thai visa as its under two separate tickets.
Understood that she can get a VOA at BKK airport, but I was wondering if anyone with Indian passport has been through similar route on separate tickets before? Did you have to apply for a "transit" visa in advance in Hong Kong? Or, can you simply go through transit area without having to go through Thai immigration and checking in again (which means she will need to get VOA)?
Thanks in advance!
