Question: What advice do you have about visas for Thailand?
Nationals of over 40 countries are eligible to travel to Thailand, for tourism purposes, without applying for a visa beforehand. They will receive a visa stamp at immigration on arrival and are permitted to stay in Thailand for a period not exceeding 30 days.
Note: Please make sure you are in possession of a passport valid for at least 6 months, a departure flight ticket, and adequate finances equivalent to at least 10,000 baht per person. The list of the 41 countries can be found at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand’s website (www.mfa.go.th).
Anyone who enters Thailand under this tourist visa exemption scheme may exit and re-enter and stay in Thailand for a cumulative duration not exceeding 90 days within a 6-month period from the date of first entry.
For tourists who wish to stay in Thailand for longer without leaving the country, there is a 3-month tourist visa option. Visit a Thai consulate/embassy abroad (e.g. in your home country or one of Thailand’s neighbours) and apply for a 2-month tourist visa. Processing may take one or two days.
Before the 60-day visa expires, visit one of the three Thai immigration bureaus to apply for the 30-day visa extension. The extension costs 1,900 baht and will allow you to extend your stay for 30 days by visiting immigration (Chaeng Wattana – Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket).
Note: Visa extensions can be completed in Thailand but it differs for each nationality. Changes to visa rules can happen at any time. It is important for guests to be aware of visa regulation updates. Check the Thai immigration website for the details of what you need. Before you go, it’s best to print your TM7 application form, passport photocopy and take 2 passport photos. Aim to get there early in the morning before the offices open and prepare to spend half a day or longer to be processed.
An education (ED) visa is the ideal way to stay in Thailand for an extended period of time without the need to do visa runs. The ED visa is a student visa for people who would like to study in Thailand. This includes: languages, university courses and even Muay Thai training camps. The length of the visa ranges from 3 months to 1 year (depending on the programme).
This is a 5-step process:
Step 1: MTOK registration and deposit
Please request a pre-registration form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A processing fee of 500 baht (approx. US $15) is required. This covers admin fees and the postage/packaging of your approval letter from the Ministry of Education (MOE). You will receive a MuayThaiOK.com reference number by email.
Step 2: MOE application form
Download the application form, complete it and email it together with the required documents below. Please include the reference number you received in step 1 in the subject of your email.
Alternatively, you can post the above application documents or hand deliver them to our offices at: TMES, 43 Thai CC Tower, 24th floor, Unit 240 Sathorn Road Yannawa, Sathon, Bangkok 10120
Step 3: MOE approval letter issued
Step 4: Visa application
Apply for a Non-immigrant “ED” at Thai embassy or Thai consulate abroad.
Step 5: Enter Thailand
Many guests who wish to stay in Thailand for longer than their 30-day visa decide to do a border run (a mini bus to immigration on the country border) to extend their visa for their stay in Thailand. Several local companies offer 1-day trips to Myanmar (Burma), Cambodia and Laos. The cost of the mini-bus shouldn’t exceed 2,000 baht.
Apart from extending your visa, you are required to report your address to Immigration every 90 days in Thailand.
This not a visa extension.
If you haven’t left the country during your first 90 days, your first visa extension and 90 days reporting will coincide. You will then have the convenience of settling both matters at Immigration on the same day.
Subsequently, your 90 days reporting will no longer coincide with your visa extensions. However, the good news is, you do not need to do the 90 days report in person. You can pay an agent to do it for you, or do it online if the website works.
The window for reporting online is from 15 days before, down until 7 days before your actual report date. The window for reporting at an immigration office is from 15 days before, down until 7 days after your actual report date. IF you file a 90 day report more than 7 days after the report date, you will be fined 2,000 baht.
Remember to apply for a re-entry permit if you plan to leave Thailand while on the ED visa. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your ED visa upon re-entering Thailand.
The cost is 1,000 baht for single use, or 3,800 baht for a multiple re-entry permit.
The re-entry permit can be obtained either at Immigration or at the airport (both Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang).
Having a re-entry permit DOES NOT exempt you from your visa extensions. You must come back to Thailand in time for your extension or your ED visa will be revoked once past the extension date.
A re-entry permit is ONLY valid as long as your current “extension of stay” stamp is valid for.
Leaving thailand with a re-entry permit will keep your current extension of stay “alive”. When you re-enter thailand you will be stamped in for the same “admitted until date” as your extension of stay.
The countdown for filing your 90 day report resets every time you re-enter Thailand. Your next 90 day report will be due 89 days from the date you enter thailand because they count the day you enter as day 1.
DO NOT throw out your old receipt of filing a 90 day report (even though the due date of your next report is wrong). Keep it and turn it in along with the TM.47 90 days reporting form when you file your next 90 day report.
