Multiple Entry Non-Imm O Now More Difficult From Australia


Scumbag

Recommended Posts

First of all this is about the multiple non-immigrant type O visa for visiting a family in Thailand. It is not about the retirement visa which is a type O-A.

 

It appears that they are clamping down on the issuing of these visas and they must now be approved by the embassy in Canberra.

 

They require a reason for why you want one a multiple entry visa. Here is a list of the extra documents they told me are required:

- letter explaining why you want a multiple entry visa

- letter from employer stating salary, position, length of employment and roster details (it seems that they may only issue a visa if you are on a FIFO situation as they mentioned it)

- 3 months pay slips

- bank statement showing a reasonable balance

 

It is possible that they are clamping down on people (like myself) who are using them to stay more or less the whole year in Thailand.

 

I checked the websites of the consulates in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane and they all say the same (an example is below). The only exception is that I found no mention on the Sydney consulate's website. I was told that applications may take longer to process because of this.

 

It appears that there have been no changes in the way single entry visas are processed.

 

 

Example notice from Brisbane: IMPORTANT- AS OF 15 AUGUST 2016, THERE ARE STRICT REQUIREMENTS REGARDING THE ISSUANCE OF MULTIPLE ENTRY NON -IMMIGRANT VISAS, WHICH WILL ONLY BE ISSUED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECT TO DISCUSS ANY SUCH APPLICATION.

Actually it is $6865, but I guess you are talking Canuck$ ... :P

 

I am not concerned about this change as my wife got her partner visa at the end of last year. We are moving to Australia in about 3 month's time so I am not going to have to worry about Thai visas for a while.

Good for you.We are just trying to figure out a way to go back and hang for a while,spend some time with the oldies before they shuffle off and put the boy in the mighty Nabiac Primary.

I guess we will just have to get a one year tourist and wing the medical.

She will work for me anyways down there,so it ain't no thing.

Shame though,that they don't have something simple for her.No use going for Citizenship,as she really won't need it.

I'm wondering if there is some grounds for unusual circumstances where she might get refugeee status if hardship was taken into account for her being separated from her family?lol.

Another example of promoting Thailand as a desination - however it is still more difficult for a Thai to get a visa to Oz.

This is pretty similat to what's happened in the UK regarding visas. The Thai leadership seems to want only short stayers. 

I'd rather look at tits, cunts and arseholes than listen to them!

I happily recall the Brisbane consulate, I had about 7 non-immigrant O visas from there over the years, even picked one up on the way to the airport to fly to Thailand. I was only staying in Thailand a few months at a a time but the consulate was a few hours from home so the cost of a non O was well worth it. Then the consulate closed and we have the new regime and rules.

Same in U.K.

Embassy only.

I rang up Brisbane consulate last week to inquire about a multi entry visa. I told them I am self employed and regularly visit my girlfriend in thailand. They said just bring in proof of money in the bank and cash of $225 for visa (they dont have eftpos).Typical thai, I bet that money goes straight into their pocket.

 

BTW I got pulled up at immigration at swampy last time using the visa exempt (visa on arrival?) thingy. They told me because I went to thailand 6 times last year I had been "flagged" and should get the Multi entry visa next time

    • 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.
