Before you enter. Passport and a Lao visa, obtainable at the border. Fill in application form and hand it back with 1 passport photo and either 35 U.S dollars or 1,500 baht.

 

At the Consulate.

1 completed application form with 2 passport photos 3×4 centimeters attached.

Original marriage certificate.

Copy of marriage certificate, front and back, as on the original.

Your passport.

Copy of passport front page (photo page), signed by you.

Copy of wife’s house book (Tabien Bahn), signed by wife.

Copy of wife’s ID card, front and back, as on the original, signed by wife.

Visa fee, 2000 baht for single entry, 5000 baht for multiple entry.

 

There's no cap on 're-entry' as it is a self-sustaining multi-entry visa (does not need a separate re-entry permit) so come and go as much as you want. However, the longest you can stay on an single entry is 90-days. There are no internal extensions allowed on this, you have to leave the country and re-enter.

Have things changed or not? I understood Savannakhet have been issuing a Non O 12 month multi entry visa based on marriage. (Something I have been getting for 15 years from London but now only 3 month single entry available).

But checking the Savannakhet website just now it appears they too are now only offering a Non O 3 month single entry visa too.

http://www.thaiembassy.org/savannakhet/th/services/9736/106945-Non-Immigrant-Visa-"O"-(For-the-purpose.html

 

Or am I missing something here?

 

Is it possible to still obtain a Non O 12 month multiple entry visa based on marriage to a Thai anywhere?

AFAIK, the Savanaket Consulate's website has been listing ONLY the 2000 baht 3-month single entry non-O for at least 6 months but very recent posts on this forum indicate that the 5000 baht 1-year multi-entry non-O has been acquired.

 

The Thai Embassy in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has also been issuing the 12 month, multi-entry non-O for marriage without financials with latest reports also being quite recent.

 

However, their website indicates that the O-A is the only option for a 1-year and requires financials. There's no listing of the non-O for marriage, 3-month single OR 1-year multi.

 

I guess we await updates from people who have very recently managed to get a 1-year, multi-entry non-O based on marriage at either location.

Incorrect you can get a 60 day extension at your local immigration office based on visiting wife.

Allowing 150 days in country

Thank for clarifying the situation NL and Ubonjoe.

That looks like the way forward for me.

Can I assume the same paperwork is required?

Completed application form

Passport

2 photos

Signed copy of marriage certificate

Signed copy of wife's ID

5,000 baht in Cash

Anything else?

 

Edit, just seen your reply fourpack, thank you, very helpful.

You need your original marriage certificate and a copy.

A copy of wife's house book registry signed by her and her ID card.

I don't use this method, but my German neighbour does and he manages to get 17 months out of his 1 year visa. He does it by leaving and reentering just before the expiry date, thus gaining 3 months and then claiming a 60 day (2 month) extension at the end of that. Then it's off to Savannakhet again for another round.

 

He does acknowledge however that whilst convenient in one respect, he gets through passport pages like crazy!

Noted. Just the last paragraph is incorrect. The Lao visa and Thai Consulate requirements are correct.

 

So by exercising this option just before the first 90-days is up, one gets ~150 days. Repeat just before the 2nd 90-day stay is due to expire and you only have to leave Thailand twice versus 4 times during any calendar year? Good for the the less-mobile or those with budgetary constraints or if you just plain hate airports.

You can stay for almost 17 months doing only 3 border runs and 3 x 60 day extension before having to apply for a new Visa.

Sounds like a sound plan for when I finally decide to quit being the big rich oil and gas man unaccountable, rich, white, northern European, heterosexual, male, fossil-fuel seeking Mother Earth rapist.

Not so (marriage) as of just now:

 

5. VALIDITY OF A VISA / THỜI HẠN CỦA THỊ THỰC

The validity of a visa is 3 months for Single Entry Visa and 1 year for Multiple Entries Visa.
 

see:

(HCMC is a consulate not an embassy).

HCMC Vietnam,

It's there, just a bit hard to find from the badly translated menus. (link as suggested in previous post)

Also listed on the notice board outside their door (photo taken earlier this month)

Different links bring up different results on the same website so thanks for the correction.

 

Anyway, ubonjoe has confirmed that nothing has changed and if he says that's the case, then I'm happy.

 

As for embassy versus consulate, there's always room for one more pedant.
