Surfing On Non B


Recommended Posts

You need a non-B visa before you can apply for a work permit.

Non-B visa's need to be applied for outside of Thailand.

Normal non-B's last a year but on the last day of the visa expire date you can do a visarun so you get an extra 3 months so in total 15months.

Just get a double entry tourist visa. A tourist visa will give you 60 days, which can be extended by 30 day for 1,900 baht. A double menas you get 2 tourist visas, so you could stay for almost 180 days and look for work.

When you have found work you can then go abroad with all the papers and get a non-B from an embassy in a neighbouring country.

I was thinking about that way.

I just wonder about tons of offers with getting Non B. So how long can I stay in Thailand if I have NON B and don't have any job?

30-40 days? :o

A non-B gives you permission to stay for 90 days, a multiple non-B would give you almost 15 months, but you would have to leave the country every 90 days.

When you find a job you can extend your permission to stay to one year at an immigration office. Once you are on an extension of stay you would need to leave the country the same day you lose your job. You could then ask for a 7 day extension of stay for 1,900 baht.
