Thai spouse visa and passport validity


Recommended Posts

Hi,
 
I own a non-immigrant visa (thai wife), i have to renew it on april 2023 but my passport will expire on september 2023. Do i have to renew my passport before the extension day (april 2023) ? When ?
 
Thanks for your help

If you apply for extension it will be granted with expiry Sept 2023. 

You should obtain a pp renewal now.

BTW you have an extension of stay not a visa.

Nope. You are not extending your Visa...

You are applying for an extension of stay.

Yes but it might take weeks to get your new passport   depending on nationality

UK around 11 weeks for example.

Same here ,  16 weeks just over , I was told by immigration that they would only give me untill passport expires then they said I needed 6 months left on it so no extension, new passport needed ,

Never heard of that before, loads of stories of extensions being granted to the validity of the passport - which is standard. Sounds a bit rogue to me.
