    When are you leaving Thailand? Have a look at the Wordtravels visa and passport requirements page. Generally a passport needs to be valid for six months beyond your date of departure from the country you're visiting, not your date of arrival. If you want to err on the safe side then apply for a pre-approved visa rather than just getting a visa upon arrival. If you have the visa in your passport then they ought to let you into Thailand without any hassles.
