No visa is required. 30 day tourist stay without a visa is free. You cannot work with a tourist visa legally. If you go to your local Thai consulate you can get a 60 day tourist visa for about $35 (I think).

Never trust anything that can bleed for 5-7 days and still live!!

Life is not the amount of breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away

You don't need a visa to come to Thailand. At the airport they will stamp your passport to give you 30 days. If you think you would like to stay longer, the easiest way is to get a tourist visa from a Thai consulate in the US. This gives you 60 and can be extended another 30 days for 1900 baht. At the present time, Thailand is offering the 60 day tourist visa for free to visitors from a number of countries. The US is one of these preferred countries.

 

Working in Thailand is a whole other story too long to go into here.

You can not get a tourist visa converted to a work permit should you find some work. I don't even think you are allowed to look for work on one either. If you were to find some work a trip outside of Thailand will be necessary to get a non-immigrant visa that can be converted to a work permit.

Semantics aside, you can convert a TR visa to a Non-B at immigration in Bangkok, provided that you have 21 days left on the TR visa.

 

 

I don't even think you are allowed to look for work on one either.

 

True, although many teachers are working on TR visas + visa runs, hence the recent crackdown on back to back TR visas in Penang & elsewhere. :)

If you want to work in Thailand, some serious research is in order.

 

As a starting point, I'd recommend http://www.ajarnforum.net/vb/ (teaching in Thailand forum.)

 

Those degreeless, whoremongering TEFLers know every trick in the book. :LOL2:

 

Peace. :001_Thank_You5:

Thank you for this link, I'll follow through with it and report any good findings to the formum.

I have heard that work visa's are possible, but not if you are in Thailand on a retirement visa.

Does anyone have a link to find out the rules in English?

I will need to work 5 or 6 years and am interested in working in patayya, in a small business as well as teaching english so you you have any links to find out this it will be appreciated.

Thanks very much and now I am keeping my word to ask more than one sentence questions to gain the inner circle of your fine forum so I can see if there is really anything better than Mexico in Pattaya.

Technically speaking all US Citizens indeed require a Visa. There are 2 ways to get them. One and the easiesr is to get the "Visa upon Arrival" good for a 30 day visit (No charge). Its stamped into your passport upon arrival. Technically the stamp that eveyone gets is indeed a "Visa".

 

The second way is to apply for a "Tourist visa" (good for 60 days with one 30 day extension. No Charge for Tourist visa thru Mar 2010) at any Thai Embassy before you leave for your trip.

 

There are other Visa availible but require alot more documentation.

You can work on a retirement visa (non-O). You can declare a combination of money in the bank (400k) or 40k per month income.

 

Does anyone have a link to find out the rules in English?

 

Here's the latest, don't quote me. :GoldenSmile1:

If you're thinking of teaching, read & reread the paperwork section of the ajarn forum.

The free visa offer is not clear. Evidently it is for the regular 30-day visa, but then I have never paid for such a visa before??? For the 60-day visa, I did have to send in a US$35 money order with the paperwork.

I just received (today) a two entry tourist visa from the Thai consulate in New York. They are free for single or two entry until March 2010. I don't know where you sent you application but you may want to ask for a refund. I phoned the Thai embassy in Washington DC to ask about cost for double entry visa and they told me it was free so just sent the application form to the NY consulate without a money order and got the stamped passport back in around 9 days.

US Citizens don't get a Visa on Arrival but just get 30 days at the airport. Visa on Arrival is a separate process where you stand in another line before immigration and apply for a visa with photos and an application. This is for nationals from India and other countries. US citizens don't do this and just get 30 days and it is not a Visa on Arrival

    • 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.
