This is going to cause a massive amount of problems if they apply an arbitrary 6 month limit when people are between jobs, even if issued a visa based on what I'm reading the next hurdle would be getting past immigration with a tourist visa after coming off a long term visa.

 

People won't be able to work here legally any more.

Indeed it will.  I've worked here continuously since 2005, and always understood that on the day my work/work permit ends I can just leave the country (as required) and re-enter as a tourist, giving me time to find a new job.

They are being strict in Vientiane as well. A appointment is needed to for the application.

 

The letter should help. Perhaps they did not understand the reason for getting the tourist visa.

 

thanks Ubon. hes in Vientiene now.

He could try on Monday but there are no appointments available. I suggest he make an appointment for Tuesday in case they will not help him since there are some available. See: https://thaivisavientiane.com/#

UPDATE (16/11/19):

 

It is very confirmed by Savanakhet and Vientiane Thai embassies:

- starting new, there will be no more TR visa to people who quitted from their job and come to SAV to get a new TR visa.

this is told to the person went there to do so by SAV embassy. Also same thing from the VIEN embassy.

from now on ppl must go back to their country and get a new TR from there. At least this one is for Bhutan nationals for sure. But both embassies didnt mention about nationality. So it can be for all. 

reason for visa deny is, staying and living in thailand for too long.

I suspect there other other embassies and consulates that would issue a tourist visa to him. Not only in a person's home country.

Well, this will be so interesting...

Thai immigration law says leave the country in 24 hours after your NON-B ends. means your visa... So normally you should go and get a new TR visa, come back and look for a new job or continue doing your non-b paper work with your company.

But now at least for Laos, this is not like this anymore. They will not give you a TR visa because.. you lived here too long. 

I really wonder now, what is next? what people will do? For example... go back to your country and try your luck for another TR? really whats next? its totally nonsense!

They're discouraging people from coming to Thailand to work. Why would they do such a thing?

 

Foreign governments should take note and act accordingly.

You could interpret it as Thailand wishing to discourage foreigners from resigning from their current jobs. Since there is no mechanism for staying briefly in Thailand between jobs, Thailand is being moved closer to the system operated by some other (especially Middle Eastern) countries where you are indentured to your employer.

Nearby options are the embassy in Kuala Lumpur or the consulate in Penang.

Here is KL's requirements to apply for a tourist visa.http://www.thaiembassy.org/kualalumpur/contents/images/text_editor/files/1_1.pdf

More info is here along with a link to their appointment site.site. http://www.thaiembassy.org/kualalumpur/th/services/99061-Visa-Requirements-II.html

If he cannot get a tourist or transit visa in Vientiane flying to KL is a good option.

I don't think that is the intention. It is only in Laos that there is a ongoing problem with getting at tourist visa after working here. Thay have tightened up to discourage people from going there to get tourist visas.
