    If you have your original marriage certificate they do not ask for a Kor Ror 2 marriage registry.

    You may of not gotten the Kor Ror 2 when you registered you marriage.

    The Kor Ror 2 is 2 or 3 pages long. I have a copy of one but it would be a lot of trouble to redact all the personal info on it.

    If you want one you can get a printout of it at any Amphoe for a fee of 20 baht. All your wife would need to get it is her ID card and a completed request form to get it.

     

    Thanks. I have the original certificate. If I want to get this document, can I get it myself with a copy of the mrs's id card and without her with me?


  2. I have read a recent post that officials at Savannakhet wanted to see a copy of a Kor ror 2 document before issuing a non immigrant o visa based on marriage to a Thai. I have never been asked for this document on 4 or 5 previous trips to the consulate there. My questions are:   1. What does a kor ror 2 look like? I cannot find one from my marriage 12 years ago. Can someone upload an example please? 2. Can anyone confirm that this is now a required document? 3. If I cannot find the original, can I get another one? Thanks in advance.


  3. Hello everyone, I currently have 3 multi entry non immigrant O visas issued from the Thai consulate in Savannakhet in my passport I will go to apply for another in June or July this year. My questions are: How many blank pages are required in my passport to apply successfully for the visa? I will have 4 or 5 blank pages on application. Also is it advised  get a new passport before going, given that I currently have 3 used visas in the passport  am using now? Thanks for any advice.

    A multiple entry non-o visa only allows 90 day entries for a year from the date of issue. You have to leave every 90 days unless you get a 60 day extension to visit your wife. You can get almost 17 months of total stay of it by getting a new 90 day entry on or before the enter before date on the visa and then getting a 60 day  extension of it.

    They normally only ask to see the original marriage certificate when you apply. 

     

    Excuse my ignorance Joe but I thought the total one could get from such a visa was 15 months. can you explain the 17 month possibility please? When and how does one apply for a 60 day extension?


  5. Hello, I will be going to Savannakhet soon to apply for a second non immigrant O visa based on marriage. Since my first successful application 15 months ago my wife has changed her address on her id card. The copy of the house papers she sent me has the front page (with the new address) and what are I assume her parents names and the page with her name which still has the old address. Should the page with her name have the new address shown or is it only listed on the front page normally? Sorry for the silly question, I just dont want any problems when I apply.

    I obtained a Non-O 12 month multi-entry visa yesterday (10/01/2017) at Savannakhet.

    No change in terms of the documents required i.e.

    - Completed visa application form with x2 passport photos
    - Original and photocopy of marriage certificate
    - Signed and dated copy of passport
    - Signed and dated copy of wife's Thai ID card
    - Signed and dated copy of wife's blue book
    - 5000 baht fee

    The only thing I would comment on is that the Consulate in Savannakhet were demanding anyone applying for a 90 day tourist visa to Thailand showed evidence of 20,000 baht.

    This slowed things down (in terms of waiting to lodge my application) as many people applying for tourist visa were arguing with the staff about this change.

    But for the Non-O multi entry, no proof of funds were required still.

    Did you have to show every page of the Blue book or only the page with your wife's name on it? What time did you get there? Cheers)))


  7. I will be going to Savannakhet to apply for a fresh non immigrant O visa based on marriage to a thai next month. I received a multi entry non O 14 months ago. Since then my wife has changed her address on her id card and house papers. (tabian baan).  I have a copy of such. Will this present a problem in any way on applying? Thanks in advance.


  8. My non Imm O visa shows an "enter before" date of 3 feb 2017. My last stamp has an "Admitted until" date of 23rd Jan 2017. I wish to go out of Thailand and re-enter next week. So, if I re enter Thailand on the 19th of January I assume I will be given another 3 month stamp until approx 18th April. If I leave and re enter thailand again on the 3rd Feb will I be given a further 3 month stay until approx 3rd May 2017?

    Absolutely.

    Of course the phote shows the parking lot and this travel agency building only.

    It's that building at the left corner with the yellow sign on top.

     

    The Thai border checkpoint is a bit further north.

    Nice truck queue :tongue:

     

    Geez my memory is bad....thx a bunch.

    In 2011 it was some building on the left side before the checkpoint where the big parking lot is. Every Thai person in the area should be able to point you in the right direction.

     

    I just checked back and that was "Kantana Tour".

    Formally a travel agent. Probably taking some premium for helping with the border pass?

    I remember it was 100 Baht then?

     

    A picture from their FB page:

    Obviously they can also do on their own but I don't know the details.

     

    Thanks, this is Nong Khai border point? It doesn't look like it.

    yes but you have to hand passport over to the Thai Consulate in the morning and collect next day after 2, so you will need to spend an extra night in Lao or one night in Mukdahan

     

    We are entering via Nong Khai, not Mudkahan. Now I am confused. I thought we could arrive at the border, the border passes would be issued to the thai id card holder almost immediately and we could cross into laos the same day. Is this not right?

    the office opens after the first bus across the border has left. would  have to get the next bus, location at khunBENQ posted, be better to use passports, 6 months or more validity required on passport.

     

    Thx Steve, we will be getting the bus from Udon Thani airport, if we don't have the passport for my son, may have to get a border pass for him....I dont quite understand your post regarding the buses.


  13. Apologies if this is the incorrect Forum. I hear different answers to this question so Im wondering if anyone knows definitively:

     

    My thai wife and child (from Udon Thani) wish to join me in going to Vientianne via Nong Khai Friendship Bridge. My question is, can they cross into Laos on their thai id cards, and if so, what is the procedure, and, if they use their passports, are they required to get a Laos visa at the border at a cost of approx 1500 per visa? Thanks for any info.

    From memory, your wife just uses her passport, visa free entry, possibly a small "service fee" on the Lao side. Your child will need a border pass good for 3 days, 2 nights, cheap. Make sure you have proof with you of the child's relationship to you and your wife. You, of course, will need a Lao visa, cheaper if paid for in US$.

     

     Thx brit Tim. She only has her passport with her....no id card. Does anyone know where I get the border pass for our child?
