Upon issue, successful applicants have 90 days to get their butts to Thailand or the visa is canceled and a new application must be filed. Once in Thailand, holders of Non-Immigrant “O” visas (and a few “B” exceptions) can stay up to a maximum of 90 days.
IMPORTANT! 90-Day Non-Immigrant visas are single-entry products which means leaving Thailand for that quick little gambling holiday in Cambodia voids the visa. If at the end you require a few more days to get your affairs in order, an application can be made for a maximum 7-day extension. Once expired, holders of this class of visa must leave Thailand and apply for the same (or potentially different) visa option from a Thai embassy or consulate in another country.
We Love You Long-Term
Length of stay for standard “ED” visas is 6 months. All remaining Non-Immigration visas — including Guroo Asia’s Self-Defence visa — are all good for 12 months.
REMEMBER! Any visa solution which allows you to stay more than 90 days now places you in the “Long-Term” category. The price for this extended love affair is a mandatory requirement for all holders to report their whereabouts (address) to Thai immigration every 90 days. This 90-Day reporting business is serious stuff so make certain to learn the rules if you now fall in the “Long-Term” category.
Option to Extend to 1-Year
Certain Non-Immigrant visas (i.e. work, marriage, retirement, etc.) grant holders an option to apply for a 1-year extension to their 90-day visa with multiple re-entry privileges — a process which can be facilitated by Guroo Asia from inside of Thailand.
