Non O Savannakhet


Recommended Posts

I am considering a trip to Savannakhet to apply for a 1-year Non O Multi entry visa based on marriage. This is the type of visa I had before Covid restrictions shut everything down. 

 Does anyone have recent experience of this type of visa in Savannakhet? And, do you know of any changes in the application process from the pre-covid period?

I drive

Do not plan driving the last 75k into Yasothon at night nor any of the road from Yasothon to Mukdahan at night. They are extremely treacherous in the dark. (I've done it before in 2018. It's better than before, but we (my son driving) didn't quite make it before the sun went down getting into Yasothon Monday night. He quit on me after the experience. 😟😢 (I was a little frazzled, too, riding shotgun.)

I too avoid at all costs driving in the dark, it's treacherous enough in broad daylight.

 

However many of the main roads around Yaso are or have been dualled and many sections have lighting so things are improving especially when compared to 10 years ago when I first came here to Yaso.

need a day or two to recover. I drive to and from Pathum Thani. It's a 'ruff' trip, especially from Saraburi to BKK after a long previous 5-6 hours. (I spend the night in Yasothon and drive back from there).

Lovely, relaxing holiday trips. 🙂

That's a lot of time and hassle when you could just get a <30,000thb agent due to not having enough funds. 

 

 

Read again please

The Keyword here is Marriage. Not many agents will/can do that extension because the decision to grant the extension is not with your local IO, but with regional Headquarters.

Read the OP....

". This is the type of visa I had before Covid restrictions shut everything down"

 

Clearly he has used this visa previously and must be his preferred option..

He is simply asking for update re process at Savannakhet and you chime in with use of agent. 

Perhaps he has never heard of agents.

Excellent point.

Don't think OP mentioned being over 50. 

Non O retirement+ extensions may not be an option

Lots can. 26,000thb.

 

Given that the multi entry visa costs 5k, then all the traveling, hotels, and the border runs every 90 days - will the borders be shut again within the next 12 months?

Replace preferred with only? No one with the funds to do an annual extension for 1,900thb is going to choose the ME option nowadays.

Yeah but is the mountain of paperwork not submitted to local IO then sent to regioanl headquaters for approval?

The OP, would not have a non O marriage.

Provide agent name to obtain non O marriage along with 12 month extension for under 30k.

Dreamworld. 

Mind you all irrelevant as the OP has not indicated notion of using agent.

I'm not naming them on the open forum.

 

If anyone requires their service I'm happy to pass the poster's personal contact details to them in private. 🙂

 

 

Oh, and yes, you're wrong. 🙂

I deal with agents often.

Please post facts. 

I know the cost of various visa assistance from agents. 

Most of which do not even deal with non O marriage.

 

You prove my point with the big secret routine. 

Basically no idea. 

 

However again...the OP has not indicated any interest in use of agent.

Any poster looking for an agent for a marriage extension that charges 26k can PM me. 🙂

 

 

You've been educated.

 

You're welcome. 🙂

The OP would also require a non O marriage visa not simply an extension. 

 

That's enough ....ignore list...bye

That old chestnut, when shown to be clueless. How embarrassing.

Reports are that it's the same as before the pandemic. 

 

I'd however be wary due to unknown future situations with the borders of neighboring and nearby countries. In 180 days.... in 270 days.... in 360 days.... there's certainly no guarantee that borders will be open and flowing freely when you need to do your border runs.

Absolute nonsense. 

Post facts not hyperbole.

There is no guarantee about how open and free flowing the borders of neighboring and nearby countries are going to be in 270... 360... and even 180 days. 🙂 That should be a worry for anyone considering getting a ME visa and using it to do border runs from Thailand over the next 12 months. 🙂

Oh dear.

Currently borders are open and you suggest will be closed over next 12 months. 

 

Can't make this stuff up.
