Returning from the UK on Non "O" Visa

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am on a Non Imm "O" Visa based on marriage with a yearly extension, reporting every 90 days.


Me, the wife and kids are thinking of having a holiday in the UK, not been since before Covid.


My questions are:


1. I need to get a "re-entry permit" from immigration before I leave? How long before I leave?

2. When I return do I need to get insurance cover?

3. Do I need to apply for a "Thai Pass"?


Just don't want to head off to the UK, only to find I can't get back into Thailand, where we live!

1)  Yes, any time before you leave from your local immigration or at the airport.

2 & 3)  Currently yes, but that could change soon.

OP, you require 10k covid insurance. Suggest buy cheap cover for 30 days.


Your reentry permit can be purchased from immigration anytime or at airport at departure. 

You fill in a TM8 form. It requires a photo.

Cost 1000 baht single and 3800 baht multiple. 


You require Thailand Pass.

You require vaccination certificate to show that you are fully vaccinated.

Why do you think you don't need a reentry permit

He doesn't . He asked how long before he leaves does he need to get it.

You seem to have the answers you need. Just a word to the wise. Is your wife Thai and will she be applying for a UK Standard Family Visit Visa. If so be aware that there is a very long wait to get a visa at the moment, due to increased travelling, The Ukraine crisis and low staff levels. They are qoting a minimum of 6 weeks and my wife who is a member of a Thai facebook group has heard about people waiting much longer.
