I'm glad to hear willyumii's positive review of the Korat office. I'm going for my first extension of my Non-O visa in 2 weeks.

Besides bringing my passport are there any forms I can complete beforehand or is the paperwork only done once at the Immigration office??

Thanks for any advice for the first extension visit.

I did my extension renewal at Dan Kwian in August and I had to fill the new form in, but only with relevant name and address, not all the extra stuff.

The name and address form has  always been required for a 90 day report.

When I did my one year extention and 90 day in Korat in August, there was still not information on internet use, banks used or anything else required.

After all of the hype I had read on TV, I came prepared to give that information and my officer said no we don't want it.

I got the impression that they really did not want it and would never  use that form unless they are required to by the powers above.

To my knowledge, this is still optional on and each office determines if they want to do it or not.

So far at the Korat office it is " NOT".

For your extetion you wil basicly require everything you submitted the first time you applied with updated dates and new photos.

I just make fresh copies of previously submitted forms with current dates and take three new photos, if none of my information has changed.

Don't forget your a current proof of income letter dated less than 6 months in advance.

Depending on your country of origin, a noterized letter from your embassy may sufice,. People of many countries are required to provide current bank records as well.

 

If not too inconvienent, stop by a week or two early and ask for a list of what is required and if anything has changed since last year.

 

You should have everything filled out and in the proper order when you come in to reply, the immigration office is no place to sit down and start filling out blank forms.

 

Again, arrive prepared and you should have no problems.

It's funny that you know better than me which forms I had to fill in......maybe I can call on you next time I have to go too.

I do not have a copy on my computer that I can share with you, but Immigration has a list of what you need and the order it should be in.

Maybe you can find it on their web site, or stop by the office for a copy.

Unfortunately, if I recall, the list is written in Thai and I always have my wife translate it for me..

But...when you arrive at the office, there are  assistants ( college students, I believe ) who will go through your forms with you and put them in order for you before you sit down with the Imm officer.

Thanks @willyumiii. I actually have the list of what is required (in Thai), so I should be good to go.

as we are talking about korat immigration,having had 2 setbacks april and september this yr.doe's anyone know of agents that will do your 90day report for you.i have been warned it could happen again while DRIVING.

extensions must be done in person [correct] ?so as both are due november i have to take a chance,something you do every time you venture out on these roads.

I can only agree with Willi above, the Khorat immigration stationed at Dan Kiwan is fantastic.

 

where else can you get;

 

1) Extremely well educated officers throughout

2) Polite and where appropriate, humourous

3) Non requested but highly pertinent and positive advice saving the Farang money.

4) Efficiency .

 

these guys are a genuine credit to LoS and I am seriously contemplating writing to the boss man at Dan Kiwan and telling him how good his team is  and how well regarded they are within the expat community.

 

or could that bugger things up?
