Re-Entry Permit Query (Leaving & then arriving back In Thailand AFTER expiration date on my O-A Visa) Visa


Recommended Posts

'CAUTION: If you leave and plan to return after the expiration date on the multiple entry “O-A” Visa, you will need a Re-Entry Permit from Thai Immigration before you depart – without the Re-Entry Permit, your extension of stay is cancelled when you leave Thailand.'


I understand I'll need a Re-Entry Permit Due to leaving and returning to Thailand after the expiration date on the multiple entry “O-A” Visa.

My passport exit stamp date shows 23 August 2020.

I need to leave Thailand twice prior to 23 August 2020 (initially on 25 February 2020 & then again in July 2020).

Do I need to attend Jomtien Immigration twice or can I get one R E Permit that will cover both trips?

When do I need to apply for the R E Permit?

What is the cost & what documents will I need?

Got mine at the airport after going through Departures, single entry one was 1200 Baht, multiple entries is I think 4500 someone can correct that as I had the single entry, no documents required just the passport and wait around 10 minutes for them to do it. 

Yes I will have to get another one if I leave before June on the same Visa as you.

Just to add that it's manned 24hrs at the airport.

You can go to Immigration once and pay 3800 baht for a multiple re-entry permit or you can go to Immigration twice and pay 1000 baht each time for a single re-entry permit. (I think those costs are up to date)

You’ll need your passport, a photo, your departure card and the completed form (TM8 I think).

I’m assuming your original O-A visa has expired as you say. (Edit: I’ve checked your other posts so can see it has expired as you say)

There is a small chance that Immigration will question you about insurance when you re-enter the country but it seems to have settled down now so shouldn’t be a problem.

    • 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.
