Visa Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

A friend of mine usually goes to Pattaya for 2 to 3 months on the 90 day visa, on his next trip he wants to stay for 4 months, he is 67 from the UK and on limited income.

Is there a way of staying in Pattaya for 4 months without doing a visa run out of Thailand ?

Thanks in advance

I would have thought three months was enough.

 

Do a "Run" see somewhere else, get back to Home base.

But, then again, I am a "Globe Trotter".

 

Otherwise the usual conversations ensue.

 

Witt, is likely to be, actually.

More about you than Him.

Yes, of course.

Yes, should be easy. You can renew the 3 month visa for another 3 months at a visa office. No need to cross the border. Never did it myself but know plenty who do exactly that. 

 

Edit: Actually, in hindsight, my info may be a bit dated. Like, from 10 years ago or so.

Liverpool.

Thai visa office does not say different.

The 90 days is the maximum.

After that a border run required.

Is that more a Yes or No response?

 

Hellah.

By all means take the advice of an unqualified 3rd party rather than the authorative source.

The 90 day visa can only be extended for 7 days.

 

The above BM advice is correct, you need to do a visa run out of Thailand.

 

The Queen Victoria pub on soi 6 does a day run from 6am with a breakfast to Cambodia and a lunch when you get back around 3:30pm. It costs 2800 baht. Used them twice.

so it's not possible to get a tourist visa for 3 months and then extend by 30 days at an immigration office in thailand? i don't know- am just asking

SETV is 60 days, then you can extend (at discretion of IO) for another 30.

Text below copied from Thai visa site.

You can get 60 days on etry and extend in country (Thailand) a further 30 days from Thai imigration office.

Total 90 days

Further extension requires a border run.

 

Tourist Visa

 

This is a 60-day Tourist Visa to Thailand that can either be a multiple or single entry and can be extended for up to another 30 days by means of a visa run. Well if you want to extend longer than 30 days, you can convert the visa to a Non-Immigrant Visa which will require you to go to the nearby city or country such us Penang and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I knew a couple of guys who every year spend 5-6 months in Thailand (not Pattaya) and they did what I described. They got a 3 month (business) visa and extended it for another 3 months. But like I said in my edit, that was close to a decade ago and most likely not valid anymore. How time flies...
