Stayin' in LOS over 30 days?

Recommended Posts

As I'm staying in Patts for 2 months I needed to get a Tourist Visa. For anyone interested it's real easy to do.

 

 

1. I downloaded 3 forms from the Thai Embassy website in Hull (as I'm in UK)

2. Easy to complete and sent them to the Embassy with my passport and a recent photo (passport size). Need to include £8 for return postage. The visa itself is currently free of charge.

3. 2 days later received my passport back with the visa stamped in it.

 

 

Just need to apply within 3 months of your planned entry date and you're good to go!

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

I just downloaded the form and it says I need to include a £28 charge for tourist visa, by postal order.

Is that right?

No, tourist visa is free at the mo, just pay £8 postage for return of passport.

You mention 3 forms. I only have 1, VISA STANDARD.pdf

Is that the one you need to send?

You need to download the 'Standard visa application pack' here:

 

http://www.thaiconsul-uk.com/downloads-and-visas.aspx

 

Then you need to fill in these forms & send them along with your passport + photo:

 

1. Visa application form.

2. Self certification form.

3. Visa payment form.

 

Single entry tourist visas are free ATM. So only the £8 return postage to pay. When I got mine last year, I sent a prepaid (special delivery) self addressed envelope, which cost half as much as they were asking; don't know if this is still an option?

 

Peace. :GoldenSmile1:

That is awesome advice but I live in London so I have a different embassy here.

Should I apply to the one in Hull instead of the one in London?

Yes, apply to Hull by post. BTW Hull is a consulate, but more importantly, they hand out visas like candy. I'm hoping that they'll give me a work visa on the strength of a teacher training course in Bangkok next year!

Is it the 90 day single entry visa that is currently free or just the standard 30 day tourist visa?

The free tourist visa gives you 60 days in the lovely Thai sunshine.

Hey, great information on visa, but the 3 month notice requirement might screw me up. Do you know is this just a postal thing? Or if it would still be the case if I did a personal visit?

Where do I get this free 60 day tourist visa from? I leave for LOS in the next few days and can't risk sending my passport away. Also, it is impractical to consider travelling to Hull as it is so far away from South Wales. Is there anywhere nearer - Cardiff possibly?

Hull is supposed to be the easiest place to get a one year 90-day multi-entry visa (actually good for 15 months). Cardiff is another consulate to try. A mate once got his multi-entry visa from Cardiff when he had a job offer in Thailand. They told him he needed a letter of confirmation but he'd left it behind in Surrey. The honorary consul told him not to worry - "Just write your own letter." He pointed to a typewriter and my mate typed up a letter and signed it. Got the visa! :)

Can anybody advise what's longest you can stay without having to leave country? I'm coming over in spring to work out if it's possible to make a permanent stay (please please please) and would get the 60 days from Hull, + 30 day extension from Jomtien (I think thats' what I understand) and then is it a trip to Cambodia or somewhere or are there other extensions can be done?

    • 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.
