TrippRitter 0 Posted February 1, 2011 Share Posted February 1, 2011 Went to Chiang Mai immigration today to do my first official 90 day reporting on a one year education visa. The officer told me that my current visa stamp was about to expire on the 9th which is correct. I told him I was going to Singapore on the 9th the day it expires and would be re-entering on the 15th. I figured rather than doing a border run I would checkout Singapore for a few days. He told me this would invalidate my 1 year visa because I would be re-entering after the expiration date of my current stamp. I was under the assumption that one just needed to leave before the expiration date and that the re-entry date was irrelevant. He told me to go to my school and get an official letter from them and he would give me an extension on my current stamp so that when I re-enter Thailand from Singapore my visa would still be valid and immigraton would give me another 90 day extension when re-entering. Does this sound correct? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
