Nothing new/ED visa specific.

Below my stamp from 2017 (got new passport).

It shows nr. of old passport and details of last entry and handwritten something like last extension based on retirement, 800k method in 2016.

Below is the 'reproduction" of the entry stamp from 2011.

I am a little surprised to see that they copied old visa information. Commonly, they only copy stamps relevant to your current permission to stay.

They always transfer the entry visa information. They have to as it dictates what extensions are available in the future.

It seems possible that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked Immigration to keep a record of Non Ed visa applications when transferring stamps so it is easier to prevent people staying long term on serial Non Ed Visas. Interesting.

It’s absolutely nothing to do with the MFA.

I understand what you are saying Sheryl, and I guess it is possible that the OP is still in Thailand on a Non Ed visa. However, the dates in the stamps he posted suggests that his stay on the Non Ed ended in May. I am assuming he may now be in Thailand on a tourist entry, but perhaps I am wrong. I have not previously seen visa information copied across that is not relevant to the current permission to stay.

His stay started in May when he entered the country. He was given 90 days until Aug. Since then he must have applied for an extension of stay. That stay permit will have been transferred in addition to the entry visa information.

Disagree as others have said.  In my opinion, when transferring current stamps into a new passport, the first information they place in the new passport is what was the basis for the initial entry into Thailand (the OP came in on an ED visa in October of 2017).  In my case, the first stamp in the new passport lists the Non-O that was issued to me more than a decade ago.

Contrary to how some people analyze the situation, I don't believe the OP's first ED visa or my first Non-O is completely dead as, in my view, all annual extensions are based on that original entry and that's why the information is transferred into a new passport along with the latest extension information (and, if still alive, an existing re-entry stamp).

As long as I have been here (30+ years) they have always done this. For every visa type. Only the stamps are transferred but notation is made of the original visa details.

 

If you seek to make an ectension they need to know what type of visa you initially enteted on

 

At several immigration offices they don't transfer the old visa,just the last entry stamp and in my case my last 1 year extension based on retirement.
