Confusion between visa types (Business/Employment/Employment NON IB/Non-Imm Type B)


Recommended Posts

Hey there,  I am a little confused between the visa types.

 

I got a prospective employer in Thailand and they have sent me their company documents/ letter etc. But they are not very sure about the type which I need to apply for from Mumbai,India. I was checking the VFS website and found there are 4 types it seems. My prospective employer is a BOI company.

 

Basically the letter which Is addressed to Royal Thai Consulate (issued by my employer) is for a request to grant me a Non Immigration Type B visa. But when I tried to refer the VFS website I found several as follows, but the Visa form seems to be same.

  • Business Visa B
  • Employment
  • Employment NON IB

 

Any suggestion which one should I apply for and where to mention it in my visa form?

IB is an investment visa. No idea why they have "business visa b" and "employment visa" on their website, but on your application form you just check "non immigrant visa" and purpose of visit "business", then you should get the right visa ?

You are going to employed by a company here so you need to apply for a non-b visa based upon employment.

This is teh page on the VFS website for it. http://www.vfs-thailand.co.in/Mumbai/Employment-3-months.html Click checklist to get the full list of required documents.

Thanks ubonjoe, always good suggestions!

 

Can you please suggest, what's the difference between Employment visa and employment Non IB visa? If employer is a BOI company then should I apply for Non IB visa else employment? Is it like that

A non-ib is for a investor in a company or business under the BOI. For employment under the BOI a letter from them is only needed instead of a WP3 work permit application receipt from the Labor Ministry.
