Extension of stay, using an agent.

Recommended Posts

For now i'm not going to mention which agent , but. Having contacted one via their website, due to insufficient funds i needed their help. This was their reply :-

 

you would have to come the office, but can renew your 1 year
the cost is 15,000 but need you here 1 month before
 

Pretty vague. Has anyone here used an agent ?, can you use them and if so what exactly do they do ? I dont want to do anything wrong, i've lived here over 20yrs and there's no way i want to do anything that would get me banned out of the country, but i need to do something in the next 4 months which is when my seeding time ends.

What other options do i have, my money is tied up till next year then i dont have a problem and i live in Phetchabun which makes border runs a 15 hour round trip plus processing time.

15,000 sounds like a bargain compared to some price quotes I have been hearing.

Go in there and ask your questions.

To add, I have never heard of an agent or ex-pat being arrested/harassed by Immigration for using an agent.

In fact they encourage it as it is big money for immigration, why bite the hand that feeds.

Good luck.

Cant go in at the moment, i live rural and its a 10 hour round trip for me.

I thought the news rules were to stop agents paying back handers and immigration officials asking for them so was wondering if it still happens.

I want to use an agent but dont know what they do. Put the money in your bank account and let it seed or pay off the I.O.

if its a fairer system then people will need agents less, when its stacked against you with nationalists then people will use agents more

 

just have to see n-section at cw where agents of top international schools are leading in the wealthy students in their uniforms, normal, happens everyday there, nobody is kicking up a fuss, in fact the larger organisations like large schools, probably think its the best and only way to get things done, especially under the present conditions

They just pay off Immigration, although Bangkok Bank or Kasikorn seem to have a role. I don't think they bother moving 800k, bit of a myth that

I use a agent in CM but ther is no free ride, I have to meet all the requirements. Agents are different from one location to another

If anyone has successfully used an agent could you send me a message with their name.

I'm lost. What are these children doing insofar as making visa extensions, without their parents and needing paid agents outside the school?
