Can 60 day Tourist Visa be changed to Non Immigrant O visa?


Recommended Posts

My friend has been issued with a 60 Tourist Visa, and will enter Thailand with CoE next week. He has a Thai bank account with the necessary THB 800,000 inside, and wishes to apply to change to a Non Immigrant O Visa. 

Is this able to be done, if he enters using a 60 Tourist Visa?

Thank you for constructive replies and assistance.

He can apply for a change of visa status to get a non-o visa that will give him a new 90 day permit to stay.

Thanks Joe for your quick response, and for supplying the necessary form - much appreciated.

I understand from your answer Joe, that I can also do this on a visa exemption, its just a different TM form, correct?

I also wonder if I have to go to the Bangkok immigration, or it they do this service in Jomtien/Pattaya also?

It can be done with a visa exempt entry.

It can be done at any immigration office but it has to be done at same office where you will apply for the one year extension.
