Get Non-immigrant B visa within Bangkok while being on VOA 30 days tourist stay


Recommended Posts

Currently I am in Bangkok on 30 days VOA with my wife and kid.

 

I am about to get a job offer in couple of days.

 

Can I get Non-immigrant B visa within Bangkok while being on VOA 30 days tourist.

 

Basically I will be getting Non Immigrant B Visa.

My wife and kid will be getting Non Immigrant O Dependent Visa.

 

Is it possible to get above Non immigrant visa while being on Tourist Visa or I have to fly back to my home/nearby country.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

There is no 30 day VOA 😮 So we will go with the premise you showed up here without having bought a visa before you came and you got stamped in FREE for 30 days <- that's not a visa on arrival, that's not a visa at all, just a free 30 day entry stamp

That totally depends on your EMPLOYER and whether they can meet the requirements to get the in country Non-B visa for you at the immigration office where you work/live.
AND
if you have enough days left on your current entry stamp to allow time for the processing of the in country Non-Imm visa. Most offices require a minimum of 15 days left on your current stamp (chiang mai requires 21) to apply for any in country Non-Immigrant type visa. That's because it goes under review for 2 weeks and you need to have days left on your stamp to stay during that time so you can go back and get the visa inked in.

MANY offices make you get the Non-B 90 day visa, then the year extension BEFORE they allow dependents (spouse, children) to get their Non-O visa issued. BUT that is something you need to check with the employer (they should know) or the immigration office you deal with.

It might be possible, but the people you need to really talk to are the employer, AND the immigration office you use. You might not have to go back to your country to get the 90 day Non-B visa (although if you did that you could get Non-O visas for your spouse and children at the same time) but you might have to go to a nearby thai consulate and get it. It's down to the employer

Does it mean they will keep my passport with them for two weeks.

 

side note: My visa will be processed at One Stop Service Center Chamchuri Square Bangkok
