  1. What 6 month visa? He could get a single entry non-o visa based upon marriage and do a couple of transfers into a Thai bank and then apply for the one year extension using the income option. No need for any money in the bank.
  2. Yes he could get a single or multiple entry non-o visa without financial proof. He could get a single entry or multiple entry in New York also. Only show the $700 (20k baht) needed for all visas.
  3. Only proof of the equivalent of 20k baht (or $700 US) in a bank.
  4. Since the OP is back home now there is no need for further discussion on this topic. Topic
  5. No problem to the crossing there. It like about all of the Lao border crossings is friendly.
  6. After getting married you can get a single entry non-o visa that would be needed to apply for an extension at a nearby embassies or consulates. With the require financial proof it can even be applied for at a immigration office. It can be done while here. No need to provide financial proof for I-130. See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-1-submit-a-petition/filing-petitions-outside-the-us.html For help with the residency application ask on the Visas and migration to other countries forum.
  7. That has been asked for before on a random basis. Not sure why the ask for it from some and not others. Did she change to your name when you got married or to another one previously? Perhaps the person before you gave them one so they asked for it from you.
  8. You can open a bank account with about any type of visa entry. People have opened them with tourist visas. You could certainly open one with a non-ed visa or an extension of stay based upon attending a school. Why are you going to wait a couple of years before you get married? I am not that up to date on applying for residency in the US but the first step will still be submitting a I-130 to do the CR-1 application. To do the I-130 here requires you to be living here and the best way to do that is to be on an extension of stay. After getting married you could possibly get a multiple entry non-o visa based upon marriage to a Thai at the consulate in Savannakhet, Laos with no financial proof.
  9. I suggest you at least try in Savannakhet since you have already been out of the country for some time now. Most people that apply there have just left Thailand to do the application. It should no be a problem in Vientiane with your history. Just checked on the Vientiane appointment website and their are appointments available for tomorrow and the rest of this week and next as well. See: https://thaivisavientiane.com/
  10. That is where they are mailed to if you are living overseas. Have you used ever used an address for here for anything at the SSA? Maybe the know you are actually living here. Info about the enforcement of the reporting is here. https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0302655000
  11. FYI and others about all the info you need to know for Thai passports can be found here in Thai. http://www.consular.go.th/main/th/services/10131
  12. The new work permit can be applied for but it will not be issued until the existing one is canceled. His extension of stay based upon working for his own company will have to be canceled and at the same time a new one applied for by your company.
  13. No problem at the consulate in Ho Chi Minh city. List of required documents are here. http://www.thaiembassy.org/hochiminh/en/services/7440/80809-Non-Immigrant-B---Teaching-in-Thailand-|-Thị-thực.html If teaching at a University the police clearance is not normally required. If you failed to get the visa you could apply for a tourist visa and then possibley apply for the non-b at immigration.
  14. What are you asking about. They only issue OA longs stay visas. They are only showing the money in US bank account option which is outside the normal requirements at other the embassy or the other official consulates you can still prove your income. See:https://www.thaicgny.com/ภาษาอ-งกฤษ-english-version/visa-service/doc-non-im-oa/ Embassy website: https://thaiembdc.org/consular-services/non-immigrant-visas/non-immigrant-category-oa/ I suggest you get a single entry non-o visa based upon marriage and then apply for a one year extension of stay based upon marriage. You will need 400k baht in a Thai bank. Or proof of 40k baht income proven by transfers from outside the country into a Thai bank account. For the first application you will only need a couple of transfers into the account and after that 12 months of transfers.
  15. You would not be able to do it without leaving the country. If teaching at University you could leave the country and apply for a a non-b visa without needing a work application approval letter at a nearby embassy or consulate.
  16. Why would they? It is not required for an extension of stay based upon marriage.
  17. As said that is not the visa application form. The is form you will complete to apply for the visa. TM87 Application For Non Immigrant Visa76.15 kB · 343 downloads Have you wife complete the statement. Your address here will be needed on it. Edit: Have seen this list of requirments already. https://division1.immigration.go.th/download/1551323240904.pdf
  18. A single entry non-o is only valid for 3 months from the date of issue. They may of lowered their requirements for the multiple entry non-o but I have seen no reports about it.
  19. It is the same for a single entry non-o visa. A multiple entry non-o requires 400k baht.
  20. Penang only wants to see 200k baht in a bank on the day you apply. No need for it to be in bank any amount of time. You could also apply for a 90 day non immigrant visa (category O) at your local immigration office based upon qualifying for an extension based upon marriage. The 400k baht only has to be in a Thai bank in your name only on the day you apply. See: https://division1.immigration.go.th/download/1551323240904.pdf
  21. Only the cancelation of the extension based upon working has to be done at the office where it was issued. The extension based upon marriage can then be done at another office with proof of residence for where it is it located.
  22. Any application put under consideration is sent to the division headquarters for where the offices is located for approval. I don't recall of one ever being disapproved at the division headquarters. I do recall them requesting more info or a clarification about something in a few cases.
  23. Not in Bangkok. As I wrote before the approval is done at Division 6 in Hat Yai. Only those done in the central region of the country are approved in Bangkok by division 1 (Bangkok) or division 3 (anywhere else in the central region).
  24. Not it does not affect applying for another visa at a embassy or consulate. They might let you apply for a 60 day extension to visit your wife that would start from the date your existing permit to stay ends.
