    I have a non-immigrant F visa. It expires Nov 14. Can I now apply for a 2-month tourist visa without leaving the country?

    A quick reply would be great.

    Thanks.

      It would not be possible. You need to exit Thailand to apply for the tourist visa at the Thai embassy or consulate in a neighboring country or your country of residence.

    Hi,
    I’m currently on a 30-day visa in Thailand and have a planned flight to Malaysia on the 12th of November. However, I’ve mistakenly crossed the boarder to early making my visa in Thailand ends on the 11th of November. I’m just wondering what’s best to do for me regarding my one day over stay.

    1. Consultant

      You can either apply for an extension on your current stamp at the immigration office near your location or pay for the 1-day overstay fine at the airport before leaving.

    I am here on Non Ed visa for my training of six months. My visa expires on December 29, 20XX. Can I extend my visa at immigration office in Phuket? Or is it necessary for me to go to Bangkok (Nepal embassy)?

    1. Consultant

      Depending on the documents that you present, you may be able to apply for an extension of your current ED visa. Kindly get in touch with the immigration office in Phuket near your current residence to inquire about the requirements and procedures.

    We are holders of a Danish passport and have 30 days visa when we arrive. Would it be possible to extend to the 60 days tourist visum in either Phuket or Bangkok while we are in Thailand?

    1. Consultant

      The 30-day entry stamp can only be extended for another 30 days at an immigration office in Phuket or Bangkok. If you wish to apply for a 60-day tourist visa, you must apply through a Thai embassy or consulate outside of Thailand.

      Okay thank you very much for your answer. It’s to late for us to make the visa from the Thai embassy here in Denmark, so we would have to do the extension. What is the fee?

    3. Consultant

      The visa extension fee is 1,900 THB.​

    Hi,

    I have one year work permit for Thailand. But I have only 3 month visa on my passport, so can I extend it for one year? I mean what is the procedure? What documents are required? When can I apply so that I can get 1 year visa on my Passport? What should be the fees for this all?

    Second I want to apply dependent visa for my wife. How can I process this? What documents are needed and which is the best procedure to apply this so that she can get 1 year dependent visa? How much would be the fees?

    Please tell the whole procedure for both my concerns.

    1. Consultant

      The extension fee is 1,900 THB. You will need to submit your application for extension to your local immigration office. For the requirements in extending your 90-day Non Immigrant B visa to a 12-month visa, ​kindly contact them for assistance.

      In applying for a Non Immigrant O visa for your wife, she will need to get in touch with the Thai embassy or consulate in her home country or current residence for information and assistance.

    Hi,

    I am currently in Koh Samui with a 60-day tourist visa. My flight leaves one day after the visa expires so I was wondering what happens if I overstay instead of getting the extension. Thanks.

      If you overstay your visa, you will be charged an overstay fee of 500THB per day.

    I have a non O single entry volunteer visa. My work permit is being processed. I am applying for and have the letter for a 12 month extension to this as my visa expires soon.

    My question is, do I have to leave Thailand to apply for my 12 month non O volunteer? Or can I do this at the immigration office in Phuket?

    1. Consultant

      Normally, Non O visas based on volunteer work cannot be extended in Thailand. You would have to apply for a new visa at a Thai embassy or consulate in your home country or a neighboring country. You may also contact your local immigration office to inquire further.

    Hi. I am Romanian and I have just 14 days visa. I am in Phi Phi and I want to extend my visa. How can I do that? Thank you.

    1. Consultant

      The visa on arrival can only be extended to 7 days. You will have to leave Thailand to apply for a tourist visa from at Thai embassy or consulate, or re-enter and apply for another visa on arrival.
