The Education Visa (PATTAYA ONLY) - Real examples only


Recommended Posts



Ok there has been a lot of speculation / talk on another website (no names mentioned) about people being "tested" when they go to signup for another 90 days at the Visa office (or ministry of education blah blah blah)


I am after FACTS only - no SPECULATION etc etc or I heard someone say etc etc.


What are peoples ACTUAL experiences from July onwards with regards to the Immigration Centre at Jomtien (NOT BANGKOK - only talking about Pattaya here)


Are people being tested on their Thai language skills?  Again as said before can we hear from people who have actually been to Immigration (Jomtien Pattaya)  on an Education Visa over the last few weeks - is it the usual hand over 1900 baht and sit there OR has the procedure changed at all?

I have stayed in Thailand on an education visa studying Thai at pro language for 3 years. I have never been asked a thing at jonitem immigration.


By the way, if anyone is so worried about this, myth or not, there is an incredibly easy solution to the problem......study something other than Thai, it's allowed you know!

Hi. I am still in contact with the school in Pattaya where I have studied,

and they never got any student "tested" at Jomtien Immigration yet :)


Nothing official yes, but the school managers have been informed

that they could have to evaluate the level of each student every 3 months.


Things will change soon for ED-Visa, sure, but we will have to wait to know which changes exactly...

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
