I Year Multi Entry

Recommended Posts

Obtained my years visa today, and I have to say......it was a piece of piss!

 

Right here goes for all interested.

 

Look up Hull consulate website, here's a link if you can't be arsed...http://www.thaiconsul-uk.com/

 

Go to visa application pack, print off forms from .pdf page.

 

Fill them in, giving as much information as you are able to, based on your individual circumstances, dont forget your passport and obtain at least 1 passport sized photograph, also complete the self declaration of financial support and sign it.

 

I had called and pre-booked an appointment over the phone, the guy at the other end was very sombre and serious, when I questioned him as to what info I might need to provide, he was very elusive, and advised me that I should bring, "whatever I thought was appropriate?". That was a lot of help.

 

So there I am travelling to Hull, with a small folder full of papers and documents. I was under the mis-aprehension that I would be needing loads of supporting evidence of where I was planning on visiting and what dates I would be in certain places, I even took bank statements showing that I would have enough funds to support myself during my stay and on my travels. This was based on the serious nature of the guys tone when I called for enquiries.

 

In actual fact......all that concern and anxiety was a waste of time! they never asked for any of it!. Even when I offered, they said, "it's ok, we only need the application form and the fee!". Imagine my relief, because it was a long way to travel to get there and would be financially a pain to have to return another time with more info. Your experience may differ, depending on the reason for your application.

 

I didnt even have to wait for an interview, I just walked in, rang the service bell and a very helpful lady came and sat in the reception there and then and checked everything over and whisked it away, that was excellent service.

 

I put "tourism" down as the reason for visit on the form, I didnt put a departure or return date on the form, I didnt even put a place where I was staying on the form. When I enquired if they would be necessary (I had prepared something in with my supporting papers to cover this), the very helpful lady filled them in for me with rough dates and left the "location of stay" blank!

 

I was not interviewed, merely relieved of my £110 and my application form and photos, asked to wait for 10 minutes in the reception, then she returned with my passport, stamp inside, with a valid from date of 04.07.07, with a 1 year expiration.

 

There was a useful form which I obtained from there, it was a document to record your visa details and number on in the event of theft or loss. This document can be faxed to the consulate and they will send a copy to a nominated fax number and a covering letter allowing you to remain in country and continue your stay without undergoing the hassle of potentially becoming "persona non-grata". There is a £15 fee for this service, but it would be worth it to remain in LOS should the unfotunate happen.

 

The 'O' visa will allow multiple entries into Thailand for blocks of 90 days, with the added bonus of a final 90 days from the day before expiration, this effectively gives you 15 months. There is still the requirement for visa runs every 90 days to fulfil the exit criteria and remain valid.

 

I enquired about what happened when my 15 month stay ends, what are the chances of obtaining another visa should i want to come home for a short break and go back?. "No problem!" was the reply, there is no limit to the number of 1 year visa's you can have, the only requirement is that you have to obtain them in your country of residence, which is UK for me.

 

I thought it would be a generally 'stuffy' affair, being interviewed by a jobsworth civil servant, being asked sticky questions and examined for any hint of mis-truths, but that impression was a thousand miles away from the actual experience. A helpful, friendly, knowledgeable staff and wholly straightforward and pleasurable 15 minutes flew by almost instantly.

 

I signed the visa book, "tomski808- pattaya addicts website guru", thanked the lady and jumped in my ride and headed home.

 

If only I'd have had some addicts stickers with me!!!

 

Wheels up!

Oh yeah, was gonna mention that......Cheers spanky

 

Next time, I would NOT even bother going in person, just post it. They reckon they had an 11 day turnaround, 11 days being the maximum to process it and return it.

 

How easy is that!?

When I was living in Manchester in 2004, I sent my passport of to Hull for the 1 year Non-imm visa and it was posted back to me in 2 days.

So you don't need the names and addresses of the people or family your supposedly visiting? I was wondering about this as I will be attempting the same thing next year. What all is really required to get a non retirement visa like that?

Just 'Visit Friends' is what needs to be put on the form and no address in Thailand is required either.

Birmingham is also a good place to get it. I got mine there, made an appointment, went there, 10 minutes later walked out with Non Imm Type O and only out of pocket £95 I think.

Hull is good, great report Tomski, but I think it is best to just let people know that Hull is good, give them the link and let them find out the details for themselves. If the finer points get read by those in immigration they could well tighten the issue of visas from Hull etc and then we'd all be stuffed! Really think it is safer to edit out most of description, anyone looking for visa info soon discovers that places like Hull are good, posting exact reasons why could backfire :P

Another question then about the visas. Do they do criminal background checks on you? I've gotten arrested once in the past, but never convicted of anything, just wondering if that throws a wrench in the works? I mean if you had no problem getting a passport, than there should be none with a visa as well, right?

Yes Hull is easy

 

Would ADD though - do NOT do it in London. The embassy in London sticks to the "rules" and you have to show a marriage certificate to get a Non Imm O or B.

 

As has been pointed out Hull accepts "visiting friends"

I got my multiple entry non-Immigrant O visa from Hull 2 and a bit years ago before retiring to live here. As the OP says, very helpful and no hassle whatsoever. The only difference was that 2 years ago, I had to produce a letter from someone else agreeing to pay the cost of repatriating me should the need arise. My brother signed mine - as if he could afford to pay for getting me back home!

This can now be self certified.

I was poking around on Thaivisa and fond a number of days calculator. Her is what it can be used for:

 

Use this utility to calculate different date range, for example:

 

- Number of days between two dates

- To calculate the 90 days in 6 months rule for visa exemptions

- To calculate overstay time

- To calculate extension or entry expiry date

- etc.

I can confirm the visa process is really that easy as i haved had mine granted twice now. Also i do live in Hull and for anyone travelling to The Thai office here it is very easy to find, literally two minutes off the main road into the city.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)
