It’s easier for a Malaysian car to cross Thailand and be used internally here. The requirements are not that many as opposed to Thai cars crossing to Malaysia. So, if you’re thinking of traveling to Thailand with your family, there’s nothing more convenient than traveling with your own car. Because once you’re in Thailand, you can go anywhere you want without worrying how to tell the Tuk Tuk ( thai public transport) driver where to go as he will have great difficulty understanding English.
So, here are the requirements :
1) Your car registration – You must bring the original document.
2) If you’re not using your own car, then you need an authorization letter from the owner of the car that he/she is allowing you to use and bring the car outside Malaysia.
3) Thai car insurance. This can be bought at the shops right immediately after the Thai immigration for only 260 Baht or 26 RM. This is really quite cheap considering that you’re covered for a month.
4) So, after you’ve done #s 1-3 and then you submit this to the officer in the last cubicle before exiting the Thai border.
