Ed Visa


Recommended Posts

If you are issued with a Multiple ED visa, valid for 12 months, multiple entry, then is it is necessary to have a re-entry permit stamped in your passport before the first departure from Thailand is made?

Our HR department says not, but the child's school (he is 6) is saying it is necessary.

His passport was stamped allowing him to stay in Thailand for 90 days until 3rd April 09, how about an extension of stay, is this possible and how long would he get, another 30 days?

Thanks.

A multiple visa means that during the time his visa is valid he can travel to Thailand unlimited times. Every time he enters Thailand he will get permisison to stay for 90 days. So no need to get a re-entry permit, but he has to leave Thailand every 90 days.

You might be able to get an extension of stay for him from immigration. An extension of stay will be for one year and every year afterwards. He will need documents from the school, the school should now this. When he is on an extension of stay, he will need a re-entry permit.

If that is difficult, you can just get an extension of stay for him as your dependend. Will be less paperwork, just need proof he is your son and you must have a non-immigrant visa with one year extension yourself.

Thanks Mario.

The confusion seems to lie in that another one of our staff has the same ED visa for his child, again multiple entry and immigration have since stamped a multiple re-entry permit in the child's passport? This doesn't make a lot of sense to us either, as why issue a multiple entry visa in the first place if a re-entry permit is subsequently needed.

It is actually not myself with this problem, it is a colleague, again he appears to have more problems, as his partner (both are South African) is in the country on a non-imm O visa, multiple entry.

She is the mother of the child and he is the father, but in the eyes of Thai law they are not married as they have no official marriage certificate, they have several documents showing common law marriage, but this applies to their home country only.

Is there anyway that both his son and partner can get a one year extension of stay based on being his dependents?

He is on a non-imm B visa, one year extension of stay and work permit.

This is a complicated one.

The child can easily get a one year extension based upon his extension with only a birth certificate or going to school.

If the child gets an extension for school his mother could get an extension based upon the childs but would have to show 500,000 baht in a Thai bank.

Another option for the wife would be for them to get married here. They each would need an affirmation to marry from the the embassy (website: http://www.saembbangkok.com/) translated to Thai and certified by the Ministry of Foreign affairs. Then they could go to the amphoe (district office) and register their marriage.

For info on extensions see 2.9 for the child in shcool and 2.11 for the mother on their extension. For both as dependents see 2.20. Of this police order: police_order_2008.pdf
