Question by ⊥ Bag: from Thailand to Australia by sea?
has anybody ever done it before, actually i am going to Thailand in a couple of weeks and i was just thinking about taking a cruise and i want to stay on a boat as long as i can and the longest route i can afford is from thailand to Australia, my main concern is that i hold a China passport and i don’t have a VISA to go to Australia, but i don’t care if i can get off the ship, i just want to be floating on the sea for a couple days, so will they let me on their ship if don’t have a VISA to Australia, how exactly can i make this happen
Thank you !

No you will not be allowed to board any vessel without a valid visa. If you board a ship in Thailand you must show a return ticket from your destination (Australia). At the end of any cruise you must leave the ship for it to be cleaned etc, even people who have back to back cruises (getting back on the same ship) have to depart at each final port. You will be denied boarding in Thailand without the correct visa’s.
