On September 10, 2019, I entered Thailand with an exceptional stamp. On September 12, 2019, I flew to Cambodia with friends.
Returned to Thailand on September 17, 2019 with an exceptional stamp.
Flew to Phnom Penh to get a 60/90 day visa on October 16, 2019.
Received a visa and returned to Thailand by plane on October 20, 2019.
Received a 30-day extension on December 13, 2019 (through January 18, 2020).
On January 13, 2020, I flew back to Phnom Penh to apply for another 60/90 day tourist visa.
I was rejected.
The only question the officer asked at the counter was why I hadn't used the exit ticket I had presented as evidence of my last tourist visa.
I replied that I had planned to go home for Christmas but had changed my mind because I had started taking Muaythai classes and wanted to continue with the classes and now I was planning to return to the States instead for spring. She asked for evidence. I gave her my schedule and continuation
Action details for my Muaythai teacher.
The "consulate" refused my visa.
Does this prevent me from getting a visa waiver stamp?
I considered flying to Laos and trying to cross the land border. However, I am nervous that I am in the system as "deny entry" or something.
I am not dealing with drugs. I am unemployed. I have a lot of money in the bank and of course a bank statement. I have given a schedule for the Thai boxing lessons and the contact details of my teacher. I'm from the United States if that's important.
It seems that the whole point was that I didn't fly in accordance with the ticket I used for my last visa application. I don't want to fly to Suvarnabhumi because I don't want to risk being deported to the United States.
Any insight would be appreciated.
