New passport transfer of visa in Thai visas, residency and work permits Posted Sunday at 02:47 PM Will be getting a new Australian passport shortly. Im just wondering what the process is once I get hold of the new passport. Can I have the visa stamp transferred when I do my 3 monthly visa run to Nong Khai (Vientianne), and if so where exactly do i do this? At the border or at an office nearby or, do I have to do this at CW prior to doing the visa run? There may be a 1 or 2 week gap between me getting the passport and doing the visa run.
