Jomtien Immigration - Re-Entry Permit


runner

Recommended Posts

I have two 60 day Tourist Visas obtained through the Thai Embassy in Los Angeles and entered Thailand on September 2nd. I will leave Thailand October 7 and return October 16. I applied for a Re-Entry Permit in order not to lose the remaining days of my first 60 day visa when I leave on October 7. I was told by the lady that was working the desk that was processing the permits that I did not need a permit as my visa was good till October 30th. When I asked would I lose the remaining days of my first 60 day visa if I did not have a re-entry permit, she pointed again at my Ocober 30th stamp on my passport page and said I did not need to obtain the permit. I thanked her for her time and left without acquiring a re-entry permit. Did I receive wrong information from the Jomtien Immigration office and will now need to obtain a re-entry permit from the Bangkok airport when I fly out?

 

On a separate note, will I have to leave and re-enter the country to activate my second 60 day Tourist Visa?

 

All comments welcome.

I am assuming that you mean that you have a double entry tourist visa. These visa allows two stays each for up to 60 days. If you leave before the 60 days is up there is no way of using the remaining days on a subsequent entry. I do not believe that they can issue a re-entry visa on a tourist visa. When you come back you will use your second entry.

Re- entry permits generally only apply to "retirement visas" certainly not tourist visas.

I think they are also available to those on education visas and extensions of stay based on a marriage to a Thai.

I concur with all the responses.  Re-entry permist which cost 1000 baht and I think 3900 baht for mutiple re-entry are for long stay visas, not tourist visas.

    • 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.
