Confused over new Visa categories


Recommended Posts

https://thaievisa.go.th/applyindividual

 

I am applying for a visa for myself and children. My children will be getting education visa, and i usually apply for the O visa visiting family and friends category.

 

This however has changed. And now the category i can see closest to what i am applying for is under the TOURIST VISA CATEGORY - visiting or staying with family resided in Thailand (less than 60 days) - is this the correct category ? 

 

Furthermore as it's under the banner of 'tourist visa' is this easy to extend whilst in Thailand ? 

 

Any help would be appreciated !

When was last time that you obtained visa based on "visiting and friends"?

As I understand it that was on option in my country (Oz)  many years back but was removed from options.

The 60 day tourist visa to visit family or friends is a option offered by the London embassy.

You your children will be applying for non-ed visas you can apply for one based upon being their parent.

Non-Immigrant Type O (Visiting or staying with applicant's family resided in Thailand (more than 60 days) - single entry only)

Proof of relationship to a family in Thailand, e.g. a copy of marriage certificate / birth certificate / certificate of adoption

Personal details of a family in Thailand, e.g. ID card, Passport and the visa page or stay permit in Thailand

Proof of accommodation in Thailand e.g. hotel bookings, invitation letters from family/friends in Thailand

Financial evidence e.g. bank statements, proof of earnings, proof of sponsorship from a third party

Confirmation of legal residence in the UK or Ireland

Yes look closely at the screenshots I posted. You have to scroll down to non-immigrant visa.
