Extend Tourist Visa at Immigration with Marriage Cert?


Recommended Posts

You can get a 60 day extension to visit your wife at your local immigration office. Your wife needs to go with you.

You will need your marriage certificate (plus a copy), copy of your wife's house book and ID card.

It is possible to do a change of visa status from a tourist visa entry to a 90 day non immigrant visa entry at Bangkok immigration. You will need proof of 400k baht in the bank or proof of 40K baht income plus all the documents, photos and etc needed for an extension of stay based upon marriage.

Then after about 60 days after doing the change you can apply for a one year extension of stay at your local immigration office. The money will need to be in the bank for 60 days when you apply.

I think I read on another post (can't find it now ) that may kill my plan. I have a Nonim O-to be with Thai spouse issued from USA. I plan to go to Hua Hinn immigration and apply for extension of 1 year. 1. will local offices still accommodate? 2. what documents do I need and/or 3. is it advisable to go to the local office in advance and ask them what they want? Thanks

You can apply for the extension at Hua Hin immigration since you already have a non-o visa.

You will need 400k baht in a Thai bank for 60 days in your name only or proof of 40k baht income.

You will will need 2 completedTM7 application forms with attached 4cm X 6cm photos.

Photos of you and your wife in and around the house One must show you together under or next to the house number. (check with local office)

Ubonjoe,

Sorry to hijack this but i having been searching along similar lines to the original poster.

I am a UK citizen with a Triple Entry Tourist Visa, i entered Thailand in October, and am due to go to Chiang Mai Immigration 12th December to extend for 30 days for 1900 Baht.

Am i reading the above correctly that i can get a 60 Day extension, as i have recently married?

Just take marriage certificate, plus copy, plus copies of house book and wife's id card?

Thanks

Yes but your wife needs to go with you also.

The only problem is that with the 3 entry tourist visa is that is will not lengthen your total stay from it. You will still need to do the 3rd entry before the enter before date on you visa.
