Volunteer visa via agent?

Recommended Posts

So is ending up in IDC after getting a visa through an agent a possibility?

Nobody has ever posted such a claim.

And if it was a possibility, it probably would have happened by now.

going through the same situation right now and you have not considered a 90 day medical visa which should be more than enough or a 90 day education visa learning thai or muay thai which if you do not plan on extending does not matter your class results. ED for 90 days have been quoted 25000, medical 23000, small price to pay for peace of mind considering overstay makes it impossible to get an elite visa

Only some teacher's whose agents used fake stamps went down, and the Canadian teachers who were arrested with the fake degrees they were told to get.  And depending on how fishy it is, extensions could be problematic, but that was more fore the over 50 guys, dodging bank requirements.  I think the link I posted was a fairly balanced article about the world saving orphanage visitors and the great unwashed elephant washers..

They did offer that definitive solution, 65K for 15 months total, the problem is that's on paper and I'm afraid of backfire. A "Volunteer" visa without doing any volunteering seems strange. I'd rather go the legit way if I can.

Wow, price doubled from the agents I've seen try to fob this off!

Definitely go with your Elite crew - surely you can get an answer sorted within 60 days?

can't imagine they will have many customers after sept 26, doubling the price can 10x the profit

If you are waiting for elite worst case scenario you will overstay a bit max 20000 fine up to to 3 months and you will be fine no need to pay 65k.

 

65k for a scammy volunteer visa, I've been quoted the same price, I literally laughed at her face.

I think the worst case scenario is that immigration will refuse to put the Elite visa in your passport if you are on overstay. They might be sympathetic in this particular situation, but do you really want to take the chance?

Agreed. By the way, if I get a new visa in my passport now, would it be problematic for my Elite application? Like, I give them my visa type and stamp for the application and when I go to Imm to get the Elite stamp I'm here on a different visa type.

It's become a popular option...fees in Pattaya are between 50-55k..done within one week..expensive but an option to keep you here for one year.

How would you get a new visa sticker or stamp in your passport? Immigration doesn't care about the validity of visas.

If you were on a long stay extension that cannot be canceled it would cause problems getting the elite visa sticker put in your passport

A friend of mine has just received a Volunteer Visa - no WP needed

 

Cost was 42k for 15 months

 

Medical visas available for 17k for 90 days

Care to share the information as to where your friend got it for 42k?  I am looking for one as well.

How would one go about getting a medical visa for 90 days without needing surgery?

 

Is everything just done straight through agent working with immigration to put stamp in passport, or do you need proof of operation?

That's a lot of money to risk. Did you go through this yourself or heard it from a friend of a friend?
