Did the thai custom changed the rules?
When we crossed the border Laos to Thailand in December 2011 we (4 Bikers) hat all two month Tourist Vias. At the Border it was not possible to get a Temp Import for two month. We only got one month, and had to extend the Temp Import later at a Thai Custom Office (Airport Chiang Mai). Someone told us that the extend is only possible two weeks befor the actual Temp Import expires.
Have that in mind.
