Dear members,


              I'm on a Non-O, based on marriage, the visa was issued on 3rd of May this year by the Thai Consulate in Sawannakhet/Laos. ( Across the bridge from Mukdahan).

I thought that it's usually 90 days until you've got to leave the country, but just had a look in my passport and was a little bit shocked.

  The stamp on the Arrival card says 01.July 2017, the stamp in the passport shows the 31st of July as the date when I have to exit Thailand.

  Now I know that it's possible to extend such a visa/extension at the local Immigration for 60 days and could finally have up to 17 months on my visa.

 Would it make sense to go to the Immigration and apply for such a 60-day visa now, or should I leave the country before, or on the 31st of Jul;y, which ius the last day of the 90 days.

  Thanks a lot in advance and a great day.

P.S. Can anybody confirm if the 28th is a holiday.or not? It started with yes, then not sure, maybe, perhaps, no, yes, we don't know.....

 Cheers- thumbs up 2

A short update after visiting the local Immigration:


     I had enough time to drive by our local Immigration and won't apply for a two months visa/extension of stay to visit my wife, which would be 1,900 baht, after a chat with the IO.

   I'll drive to Cambodia and leave Thailand before the 31st of July and get another 90 days. When I'm leaving on the last day my visa is good, I'll receive another 90 days when I leave the country.

 Depending on the circumstances ( work, family, etc), I could apply for a 60-day visa once my Non=O expires. then back to Sawannakhet which seems to be the only place where they don't want to see financial proof.

The stamp says 31st of July, not 1st.  thank you 2

  Regarding STAMP. Did anybody hear from him? Is he on this forum?

   The problem is solved, thank you for your attention. thank you

You will get another 90 day permission to stay when you ENTER the country, not when you leave.

The 60 days you talk about is an extension of stay to visit your wife, not a visa. Also, if you apply for that on your last entry, your visa will have expired a few months previously - but not your permission to stay.

It is very important to use the correct terms, otherwise it could be misleading or worse for other users.

Amen.

I've grown very annoyed, confused, and frustrated by people who are leaving the Kingdom to "convert" as opposed to "apply for" a visa.

Thank God I'm perfect and never make mistakes.

A fine and funny sentiment until someone gets a big fine or worse because of incorrect info or incorrect terminology.

If you find that funny, then that is sad.
