How is the Period of 30 days counted for Maldivians travelling on tourist purpose? Does this include any prior period of stay in Thailand? If so the period, whether 6 months or 12 months immediately preceding the date of your entry into Thailand.
Period of stay is determined by the Thai Immigration officer, who will stamp on the valid passport/travel document, indicating date of entry, which is considered the first day of the 30-day period. The stamp will also indicate the last day allowed to stay in Thailand.
