visa renewal


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a visa based upon marriage that will end on 29 August. I will divorce soon and not in good term with my wife anymore. She agreed to give me full custody of my daughter.

The agency that got my work permit said that I can't get a visa as a thai father because I need 12 months salary and I can't get a business visa as the company hiring me has a capital of 1 million bahts only.

I can't renew has husband as I just got my work permit too and can't show my other month salaries.

Only way I see would be savanakhet before to divorce. Do I need my wife for this? Any other alternative? Arrangement with officer?

You can change your extension of stay to "Take care of Thai child"

Requires 400,000 baht in a Thai bank account or Thai Work Permit with a monthly salary of 40k baht

So they are right, I would need 1 year salary.

They just told me that they could increase my company capital and charge me 35 000 bahts with 100% garanty to get business visa

Does your Embassy issue income letter?

So it doesn't specify how many months? As I just got my work permit I can't show any other salaries. My contract is 70 000 per month. Maybe I should go to discuss with an officer with my new thai girlfriend to translate and see if we can make an arrangement. The 35 000 of the agency seems excessive

So 3 months given that my work permit is from today then I can't. Damn. Going to have to pay 35 000 to this agency.

What about going to Savannakhet? Do I need anything from my wife? All the documents are with me

I think your best bet (if you cannot borrow 400,000 baht) is the multiple entry Non O from Savannakhet. Your wife does not need to go with you, but you need your marriage certificate, along with signed copies of that and your wife's id card. If your wife is unwilling to provide any assistance at all, usually a 5,000 baht to 10,000 baht offer will change their mind.

Sounds good, can I divorce just after this? And still keep my visa?

If you get a multiple entry non-o visa it will remain valid to leaved and enter the country every 90 days.

So I can do this very soon and divorce just after, and with this visa and my work permit I can work?

Can I do this without the help of my future ex wife? At savannakhet?

Yes, you can ... as long, as I wrote above, you can get your wife's signature on the required document copies before going to Savannakhet.

My company told me they can raise the capital to 2 millions bahts in one week.

So I started to contact many visa agencies and it seems it's difficult to switch from Non O to Business visa.

The agency who helped for the work permit is asking 35 000 even if my company has the 2 millions required.

Another agency asked me to bring all document from my marriage and renew for one year even if I don't have the 400 000 or enough month salaries... they charge 25 000 for this and they say I can't switch to business visa, I have to extend with marriage first.

I'm a bit lost with all these information...

If they denied my non O visa at savannakhet can I come back to Thailand and accept the business visa at 35 000 from my agency. Could I get stuck in Laos? If they denied it is my non O up to 29 still valid? What are the requirements for marriage non O? Do all the documents have to be signed by my wife?

It is very unlikely you non-o visa would be denied. You would not be denied entry to the country and could enter visa exempt to get 30 days.

If you are on extension of stay with a re-entry permit you could use it to enter the country but the consulate could refuse your application since it is equal to having a valid visa in your passport.

You wife would need to sign a copy of her ID card and house book registry. They could want a copy of your marriage certificate be signed by her as well.
