Which visa?

Recommended Posts

hi

 

right, im planning on going too Los in may/june to visit my TGF and do some travelling, this is only my second visit and i wish to stay for as long as possible. the problem is i dont know exactly how long im just gonna see how my money goes but i hope to stay for around 3 months if i can. maybe looking into setting up a business or something as well.

 

which visa can i get?

 

if i get a tourist visa does it only cover me for 2 months and then do i have too do a visa run or can i qualify for a "non immigrant visa" under category "O" because im staying with my TGF.

 

ideally i want to just go and not bother with visa run but dont really understand which visas i can get. tried phoning thai consul but i dont think the guy on other end of phone really understood me. and he wanted to know exact dates which obviously i cant supply.

 

any help advice would be appreciated.

 

oh on a secondary note, would my GF be able too come back to UK with me on a holiday visa if she has no job in thailand ?

Hello Pacman,

 

I see your from Manchester so i want to help a fellow Manc as much as i can.......

 

If you do a site search on here for Visa's you will find very detailed explanation of how the visa system works.

 

The other issue you mention on bringing Thai girlfriend back is even more of a minefield but if you do the same and read some of the other posters experiences you will see whats involved.

 

I have read up on both subjects via this site and www.pattayasecrets.com and i think the short answer is you have to do a few visa runs if you want to stay for 90 days. Read about the other options to see if you qualify but from my own perspective its visa runs.

 

The visa run is covered extensively on both sites so it is easy to pick up the ropes in terms of how to deal with this.

 

The option of bringing back your girlfriend to Manchester seems remote from what i have read but i am sure one of the other more exerienced posters will be able to offer some good pointers on this.

 

Are you a red or a blue?

 

All the best

 

Blue

The non immigrant multi entry visa is very easy to get from the Hull consulate. Just specify "visiting friends" as the reason for the visa. Send off your passport and £100+, your passport will be returned 2 days later with the visa stamped in it. This visa will allow you to stay up to 90 days in Thailand.

If you are only going for a one 3 month stay you can save a little money by only getting a single entry non-immigrant type-O visa.

 

Getting your GF a visa to go to the UK should not be a problem if you go about it the right way.

The 60 day tourist visa is free until June 4th. It would then have to be extended for 30 days at Jomtien immigration office for 30 days (cost 1900 Baht). So you would not have to do a border run. You could also apply for a double entry tourist visa that could also be free and would permit you to stay for up to 120 days with one border run (cost 2000-2500 Baht). This could also be extended at Jomtien if you wanted to stay for up to a total of 180 days. Getting the double entry tourist visa would give you the most options ant the minimum cost.

Only the single entry tourist visa is free at the moment.

Thanks for the information Gogo Dog and DP Gumbypgh thats really helpful to me for future trips I didnt realise you could obtain such a flexible option.

 

I am due to go again in November so i keep this in mind.

 

Thanks

The double entry tourist visa is free in USA, I just got one. I realize that it does not help if you live in the UK but this information should be useful for others.

Get a multi Entry Visa from hull . then you can stay for 90 days without doing a boarder run, if you want to stay a little longer then just go to Jomtem, as for bringing back your Thai girlfriend , you need a lot of paperwork Like 6 months bank statements , proof of your job , utility bills any investments . mortgage statements, Proof of contact ,ie phone bills photos, recites of where you stayed , and any other .like laundry. She will need bank book , blue book, proof of job, birth certificate for herself and children if she has any, ID card passport, You will have to prove she will go home after her stay , if you do your homework and get it right , only takes a week to ten days .All the forms you can down load off the internet , you want the British Embasy Bangkok, it will tell you what to do , it also has a check list of what forms you need. Vaf form for Tourist, 6 month max. hope that helps . I know i have done it , so it can be done.

A proof of job is not necessary at all the strength of relationship can also be a deciding factor in any application. We have just submitted an application from a client who uses the board and she is now in the UK. The client partner had no letter confirming employment or any assets however a well laid out application can help the clients case.

 

The ECO will be looking for you to demonstrate you are in a subsisting relationship etc, if you have assets this is a great help however this is not always the deciding factor. You have various other options in regard to visa applications each client is different as is each case remember every case is judged on its own merits.

 

If you require any professional help feel free to contact me.

Free visa? How do you get a free visa?

 

Found it. It was on the Embassy website, but not on the Consulate website. Thanks

    • 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)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
