Good day

at present I have a NON-IMM O with a retirement visa extention which expires on the 28th March. I hold a British passport.

I needed to use some of my vested money due to family matters so my account has fallen below the 800 000 bht which is needed for the two months before renewal of extemtion.

It looks like that I will now need to leave the country and renew my NON-IMM O permit. I was thinking of travelling to Penang and coming back into Thailand on a visa on arrival then sort out my NON-IMM O permit with my local immergration office in Korat. Or if I can obtain a NON-IMM permit in Pennang if easier. Then convert to a retirement or this time marrage extention.

if there are easier places to travel to than Pennang Im happy to do so.

Can I also fly out of Thailand a week before my visa extention expires and apply for a New NON-IMM O permit which I belive should give me 90days to sort out my extenion. Money would be vested by then again the required 2 months

 

Thanks.

I will not have 400 000bht in the bank yet, but if I can apply for a 60days extention at Korat immergration would be the way to go. Do I need to show them my bank account or just means of funds to cover myself

NO finacials are required but you must provide copies of your marriage cert., wives ID and tabian baan - Your wife must also be present when applying.

No need for any financial proof.

You will need your marriage certificate and a copy of it, copies of wife's house book registry and ID card. She will need to be with you when you apply.

A question I too have -- will the nearby Thai consulates issue a Non O visa if you still have a week or two left on your extension, which is protected by a re-entry permit? I remember in years past getting a new Non O from Portland, USA honorary consulate several weeks before my older Non O would expire. However, I guess, that would not set any kind of precedent...

 

If no, or doubtful to the above, how dangerous is it to leave Thailand by air with an extension that is two days expired: A simple pay the 500k per day fine -- or should I expect some sort of drama?

Can that be my certified raised seal copy of my Western marriage license -- or would I need to convert this Western marriage certificate to a Kor Ror 22?

Thanx.

Your marriage certificate will be accepted. A Kor Ror 22 is not required.

Are there any agents in your area that could perhaps help?

When you have only a couple of days left on your non-expired permission to stay protected by a Re-Entry Permit, there would normally be no problem to apply for a new Visa at a nearby thai embassy/consultate.

But indeed if your permission to stay only expires in 1 or 2 weeks, your application for a new Visa might be refused.

However, it would normally be no problem to re-enter Thailand VisaExempt when the number of days you would get from your non-expired permission to stay is LOWER than the 30 days a VisaExempt entry would provide you.  The normal procedure would be to provide you with the 30 day VE entry, and that would void the permission to stay of your Non Imm O Visa.

Doing so, you could then exit Thailand again and then apply for a new Non Imm O Visa at the thai embassy/consulate.

 

Re your 2nd question, instead of paying 1000 THB for 2 days overstay and getting an over-stay stamp in your passport (which might haunt you for years to come), It would be easier to apply for an extension of stay at your local IO knowing full well that it will be refused for not meeting the requirements.  You would pay 1.900 THB for the application (which will be refused), but the procedure is then that they will provide you with 7 days to arrange your stuff and leave the country.  Dong so, you will not be on overstay.

Howdy,

 

as far as I understand it, at Savannaketh you will get promptly a 1 year Multiple Entry Non-Imm O (based on marriage) without any financial proof.

Wife does not nee to join you, but they will see a Kor Ror 2/22 (at least they checked mine 2 weeks ago).

 

Cheers

The Kor-Ror  document is not listed a a requirement - They looked at yours because you decided to provide it.

Ubonjoe, have you ever seen any problems paying a two day overstay fine at the airport and/or later repercussions because of an overstay stamp in your passport? thanx.

No

Only if caught with the overstay before leaving the country could there be a problem.
