Tourist visa to Thailand
Visa to Thailand a few years ago Yes was necessary, but thanks to an agreement between countries in 2008, the need for tourist visa to Thailand has been abolished for 41 countries (Spain and most of Europe). In the case of wanting to remain in Thailand for a period exceeding 30 days (15 according to the border that is accessed) if needed a visa to Thailand, issued by the Thai Embassy in any country, although there are also other options, for example reside in Thailand without any visa.
Stay in Thailand for a period exceeding 30 days
It is legal to stay in Thailand for a period longer than 30 days without any visa, however to the abandoned Thailand has to pay a fine. That fine is 500 baht per day (15$). Depending on the number of extra days that will remain in Thailand, may agree to take a bus to leave Thailand and subsequently return, catch a plane ticket back and forth to a neighbouring country (e.g.: Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos,...), or ask for a visa extension.
Penalty for stay in Thailand without a visa
As we have discussed the fine payable for stay in Thailand for a period longer than 30 days without a visa are 500 baht per day which is exceeded. The maximum fine amount is limited to 20,000 baht (aprox. 500€). That fine is paid cash to cross the border of output of Thailand, immigration or controls you can pay in advance at any Thai immigration office (in this case there is to retain your receipt and present it on the border of output).
For example, this is the airport desk international Suvarnabhumi in Bangkok where the fine is paid by gate more time than allowed in Thailand (signs are fine for overstay).

Immigration Form for Thailand
Before crossing any border Thailand authorities delivered us a little tab of paper similar in size to an airline ticket, this tab is nothing more than the form of immigration to Thailand. Reflected in any border post and in the case of reaching Thailand using the aircraft, the own airline will provide us with this form.
You have to fill in a series of basic data (name, address of the accommodation in Thailand, during the visit, etc...).
This form of immigration should keep it and present it to leave Thailand, to avoid losses and losses, authorities usually stapled to the Passport.
