Thumbs up Thailand border entry and shipping into

Renewal of TIP in Bangkok:

Go through that gate and turn immediately right, the building is at the end of a short road. The office is on the 2nd floor.
You have to go there personally and show your bike

If you need new tires in Chiang Mai I recommend the following shop:

Hello friend, I am traveling by motorcycle now in Kathmandu and I want to fly with the motorcycle by plane to Bangkok to visit Thailand. I would like to know if I can do it freely or is it necessary to hire a guide in Thailand. Other travelers recommend flying to Kualalumpur and traveling through Malaysia to Thailand and entering there without a guide. I await your news, thank you.

Thailand from Nepal by flight

Today 3/22/2023 I have managed to send my BMW F800 motorcycle from Kathmandu to Bangkok by Nepal Airlines, I had many doubts because the easy thing would have been to go to Kuala Lumpur and then enter Thailand, the problem was that not every month there is a plane direct cargo to Kuala Lumpur, so I flew my motorcycle thanks to Eagle Eyes Export for €1150 with Suraj and Savin, good service from Kathmandu contact +977 984-9273516 it went great, they asked me for the passage card in Bangkok because they like to consult it to get the numbers right and they didn't stamp it for me, also they didn't ask me for a guide or a travel agency, so I'm happy traveling freely through Thailand. Of course, there are many papers to fill out, it took me a day and a half, the key is to call Buttan, the concierge of the Cargo office, who knows the whole process, which is very complex. I'll give you a gold consist: 0850939286. Call him the day you go to pick up your motorcycle, it's better to start early at 9 because then everyone stops to eat from 12 to 1. Then at 3:30 they close. You will have to give some tips to speed up the procedure, bring cash.

Thanks for the report, very informative.

However - a couple of points that was unclear to me, first of all you mentioned that thai customs wanted the «passage card». Do you mean the Carnet? Or is there another document involved?

Also you mentioned that your bike was freighted by Nepal Airlines and that there wasnt a plane to Kuala Lumpur every month that could take a bike.
All other reports I have read lately said that there wasnt any wide body plane that could room a bike going to Bangkok - but ro Kuala Lumpur there were so no problem shipping a bike to KL. So thats a bit contradicting to what you say…
In the end everything will be fine. If its not fine its not the end....
