Options to renew/extend Non Imm O visa.(In current covid situation)


Recommended Posts

Question for Ubonjoe  ???  My single entry Non O visa (dependant children )is due to expire 8th February. What are my options to obtain a further 90 days stay?In previous years I have done this by applying for an extension at my local Surin immigration office or making a new visa in Laos. If it makes any difference to my visa situation I will be getting married before the end of this January?? Thanks in advance

UJ's an early to bed, early to rise type.

 

Once married you can apply for a 60 day extension to visit Thai wife.

 

You can also apply for a 1 year extension based on marriage. Requires 400K deposited in a Thai bank for 2 months prior the application , or 2 x 40K overseas monthly transfers for the first extension.

Depending on your nationality, you may be able to obtain an Embassy Income letter as an alternative.

As said, 60 days extension to visit Wife once you are married.

12 month extension if you have 400,000 Baht in the bank or proof of 40,000 monthly income

If his child is Thai he can apply for a 60 day extension to visit them and a one year extension of stay based upon being the parent of a Thai (it is not a dependent visa or extension of stay since one does not exist).

With the greatest of respect, never have I, or would I suggest a 'dependant' Visa or extension exists.

Same as I would never use the terms, Retirement or Marriage Visa as they don't exist.

I know better.

 

I never mention applying based on Thai child, as the child would then also have to attend Immigration.

Personally I'd never want to drag kids around those offices if I had an alternative.

My comment was not directed at you.

Sometimes getting married is not always possible and I prefer to offer all options.

Just a comment about the stamp, did they recently redesign them during the pandemic? On my last entry in March, they still used the old boxy stamps.

Thanks for the info.... Yes my children are Thai. I think applying for a 1 year extension of stay is the option for me as the 60 days wouldnt be enough before I return to work in mid April.Do I need to show financial docs for the 1 year extension?? I did a 60 day extension about 2 years ago but didn't have to show and financial statement then.

Were you applying for an extension based upon being the parent of a Thai. If yes you need to have a Thai birth certificate for them.

If you were married to their mother you do not need to have your parenthood legitimized.

Yes, that's the case in Thailand.... being named as the father on the birth certificate doesn't have the same legal standing as it would in many European country's. You can apply to get this certificate of legitimization through the courts system in the province your child is registered in.

You need to have 400k baht a Thai bank on the day you apply for the extension. Or proof of 40k baht income.

I suggest you try to apply for a 60 day covid 19 extension instead of one to visit your child. Unless they extend the order for them the last day they can be applied for is the 29th. 

Then apply for the 60 day extension to visit your child later. You can only apply for one per entry to the country.

Thanks ubonjoe...so to get this straight in my tiny mind......I can apply for the covid 19 extension before the 29th January (60 days) AND later apply for the extension to visit with my children (60 days)!!??

What documentation do I have to produce for the covid 19 extension?

It can depend upon the office where you apply.

Most will want a completed TM30 report.

Copies of you your passport photo page, visa, entry stamp and TM6 departure card.

And a completed affidavit stating the reason you require the extension they will give to you.
