immigration authority that your travel intent and period has been verified and approved in accordance with a visa approval guideline by the Thai Immigration Bureau.  Therefore, the visa, by itself, shall not be solely regarded as a guarantee to enter the country.  A permit to entry and period of stay is at the discretion of the immigration officer at a port of entry.
