My ED-Visa expired on the end of April , due to amnesty and my country's border being closed i remained in thailand , i wanted to join the same university for another program but they told me i need to leave the country and apply for another visa , i was wondering why i cant extend the same education visa that i had  , instead of going out and applying for another visa specially under the current conditions. somebody told me if the land-borders are open i could go to the thai embassy in Malaysia apply for a visa there return to thailand and quarantine for 14 days , which is time and money wastingjust to get a visa.

"Somebody" doesn't know the situation at the moment. Malaysia border is closed and also if you fly out, you have to apply permission to come back which is not yet for ED visa. I'm wondering what is the country that doesn't allow citizen to fly in. There are flights out from Thailand every day.

This university is definitely giving the wrong advice. Can you email me what's the name of this uni?

I spoke to a school yesterday about getting a one year ED visa and the school informed me that I could apply for the ED Visa at the local immigration office for 11 000 Baht , without needing to leave Thailand

What school was this? I know there are agents offering these "services". I'm sure the 11,000 baht isn't an official immigration fee.

It is in CM, PM me if you want the address .

As far as I was aware , the visa was direct from immigration legitimately , as they realize people cannot leave the Country to get Ed visas

So where is the 11,000 baht fee published? You won't find it on any official website or an official announcement. It's a bribe.

Its a private Thai language school , I am quite sure I was told that I would have to go to immigration myself and only whilst we are in the emergency amnesty and therefore it would be a legitimate payment , but I can go back and ask tomorrow for clarification if you need info

You seem very naive. You obviously haven't been here long. I hope you're not expecting a receipt.

Ha ha , there you go .

CM University offering 1 year Education visas with out leaving Thailand during the Visa amnesty ending on July 31 st 

How do you feel now ?

Again very naive. You have always been able to get an education visa without leaving the country if you are studying at a university. No need for an 11,000 baht "fee". You were talking about a private school which is something completely different.

 

But go ahead and pay the bribe while convincing yourself it's a legitimate fee if that makes you feel better.

They are legitimate - take it from someone who has had one - and yes if is for attending a private school not a Uni

 

Fully processed by Immigration - 90 day extensions also fully processed by Immigration

I don't doubt it but the 11,000 baht is still a bribe not an official fee. I guarantee they won't be issuing a receipt confirming payment of 11,000 baht.

Does it matter ?? He has a valid 1 year visa for 11.000 baht . Beats flying or driving out of the country 3 times a year for tourist visa with all it's costs as well . If he is happy with it what are you complaining about ? Especially now the borders are closed it's a good option for some people so let them be + it's a source of income for some people providing it .
