Can I enter and leave Thailand on the same day?

Is there a minimum time limit for staying in Thailand?

Say I come into Thailand over land and return back to where I came from on the same day – is this possible?

There is no minimum time limit requirement to stay in Thailand. There is no problem with entering Thailand and returning to where you came from on the same day.

However, there are “maximum” limits on the amount of time you can spend in Thailand depending on the permit issued to you. If you overstay your permit to stay, you will be fined 500 baht for each day you overstay, to a maximum fine of 20,000 baht.
