Today i asked an agent and he told me he can help me obtain volunteer visa for 12 month for a price of 50K and told me no voluteering required , but as im reading the forums about this visa  i see comments mentioned that its cost 60K and and its only for three month and i have to renew it and also some volunteering works required...ect ....   does my agent sound legit? .

(i already extended my visa with embassy letter till the 26 oct so i have time)

Again with your rubbish. It's legit because the stamps FROM IMMIGRATION are genuine. Go cry me a river.

Please ring 1178 tomorrow and outline your concerns rather than compromise threads where folks are requesting advice. 

You volunteer to make a donation, they volunteer to give you a visa in return. End of.

Your reading incorrectly.

However where did you meet agent.

You dealing with an office or some random individual?

My good friend obtains same for 12 month 49k. That price would not be available now. It takes up to 2 weeks .

I would prefer to deal with agent rather than school. Many good agents with offices in most areas. That way you know who your directly dealing with and not 3rd party.

BTW 50K is normal.

You need post more info. How did you enter Thailand. My guess tourist visa or visa exempt. That means agent needs to obtain non o first then extension based on volunteering. 50k would be very good price.

What specific category (reason) of visa/extension would you be obtaining?

 

I had a friend quoted around ฿44k from a law office, and it would be a 12 month extension of non-o for visiting Thai family; I think retirement is a little cheaper. Normally 1 week, but there is a "rush" of applications over last couple of days 😁

All the legit agents are saying they cant get volunteer visas right now not enough time. 

 

Yesterday or today was the last day.  Maybe for Bangkok metro area and neighbor provinces, tomorrow may be the cutoff day.

Agents assistance cost all depends on options. It depends on how you entered Thailand. On a non o or tourist / visa exempt etc. 

The friend I made reference to entered on METV. Hence the agent needs to obtain non o first. 

Your friend visiting Thai family is very minor. Should be very cheap.

Annual extension based on marriage is expensive. Requires docs go up food chain.

In fact if over 50 agent would prefer extension based on retirement and cheapo option.

What do you think, a volunteer visa but you don't have to volunteer? How can that be legit? Pathetic.

Friend entered on a non-immigrant o.  Did not have financial requirement seasoned, which i figured contributed to the total cost.   Visiting Thai family (spouse, child) seem to have the largest document requirements, ironically.

 

I think an entire thread should be started specifically for agent extensions Sept-Nov, 2020.  Costs, location, what category, et al.

 

edit:  I also suspect the a big part of the reasoning for this non-renewal of amnesty extension was to [re]generate some revenue at immigration.   4-6 months is a long time without any extension revenue.

That only affects people whose amnesty/extension runs out on Saturday.

 

The OP has extended his stay for one more month until late October so there is plenty of time for him.

Prices vary for end 40s to mid 60s depending on the agent, location, the kind of visa and add ons (re-entry).

 

Getting quoted a price of 50k is normal for a volunteer Non-O. I would prefer to deal an agent directly instead of that school. Price won't change, the lowest prices are in Chiang Mai and Pattaya IMHO.

These days, almost all kinds of visas and extensions that used to require a trip to Bangkok can now be processed at local immigration offices. However, in many cases, they are taken under consideration, and approved at division level.
