    Re: Visa rules will be tightened to stop abuse

    New visa rules confirmed

    PHUKET: -- New rules limiting stays in Thailand on “visas on arrival” to 90 days over any six month period were confirmed at a September 15 meeting of Immigration Department Chiefs in Bangkok. The new policy will go into effect on October 1.

    In a related development, the Royal Thai Consulate in Penang, Malaysia, has stopped issuing double-entry tourist visas.

    Pol Lt Col Pipat Pongpan, an Inspector at Phuket Immigration Office, told the Gazette, “Anyone who has already stayed 90 days on visa-on-arrival permits does not need to worry. We will start counting the days from October 1.

    “[Foreigners from countries qualifying for visas on arrival] can come in and out of the country as many times as they like with a visa on arrival, but can stay for a maximum of 90 days in any six month period. If they stay 90 days then they must leave for 90 days before they are entitled to another visa on arrival. They can, however, go and request a tourist visa from a Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate abroad and come back into the country,” he said.

    “Extensions above the 90-day limit may be granted in exceptional cases, such as if the tourist is suffering from an illness or involved in a lawsuit,” he added.

    “No new investment visas will be issued after October 1. However, existing visas in this category may be extended if the holder still has funds of 3 million baht and is still doing business in Thailand,” Col Pipat said.

    Tourist visas are still available, for a fee, at Thai embassies and consulates in neighboring countries. The Royal Thai Consulate in Penang, however, will now issue only single-entry 60-day tourist visas. An official at the consulate said that an order had been sent down from Consul Pramote Pramoonsab to cease issuance of double-entry tourist visas, which allow a total stay of up to 120 days.

    Double-entry tourist visas are at present still available in the Thai Consulate in Kota Bharu and Thai Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, however.

    A source in the Visa and Travel Document Division, Department of Consular Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), said that the move by the consulate in Penang is not due to any sweeping changes in MFA policy.

    The decision whether or not to issue double-entry tourist visas rests solely at the discretion of each diplomatic mission, the source explained.

    Re: Visa rules will be tightened to stop abuse

    @ Alhash und Luc,

    hab zwztl. die Webseiten vom Konsulat Frankfurt,
    von 2 Konsulaten in den USA und die Webpräzens der
    Thai immigration, aus Th. verglichen.

    Aufgefallen war mir..das auf der Thaiseite aus Th. zu der
    Beantragung für ein Non Immigant - O - Visa, nix von
    rentenpapieren, Pensionspapieren geschrieben wird, bei den anderen Adressen, Vorraussetzung für die Visabeantragung,
    das Vorzeigen solcher Papiere ist.


    Evtl...ist es la möglich ,das sich ein Tourist Visa in Th. bei der Immigration " umändern " lässt, so das man zu einer Verlängerung auf bis zu einem Jahr kommt.

    Werd das dieses Jahr bei der Immi direct nachfragen, was es da, ob es da einen Weg gibt.

    Zumal uns von der Immi ja ans Herz gelegt wurde ( bei meiner letzen Tourivisa Verlängerung ) innerhalb von glaube 24 Stunden, eine Anmeldung bei der Immi zu vollziehen sei. gruss.

    ein touristenvisum laesst sich auf allen Immigrationoffices in Thailand umschreiben.Bei Bedarf stelle ich Links hier rein.
    Es laesst sich auch die Visaexemption umschreiben,aber auch das Touristenvisum ein,zweifache oder mehrfache Einreisen.Man ist aber auch an gewisse Fristen dabei gebunden.

    Re: Visa rules will be tightened to stop abuse

    Hallo Samuianer
    zum einen lebe ich seit knapp 2 Jahren in Chiang Dao/Chiang Mai,und kenne die Immigration hier und kenne auch das Immigration Law,zum zweiten kannst Du natuerlich auch im 3.Stock in der Soi suan phlu in einem sehr grossen Extra Buero diese Angelegenheiten erledigen.Dort war bisher aber sehr wenig Betrieb.Ich habe auch die Merkzettel dafuer mitgenommen.Wenn ich einen Scanner hier haette wuerde ich sie auch einscannen.Aber Du darfst mir auch so glauben.

    Hallo Alhash
    Nokgeo ist mir nun bereits zuvorgekommen.Aber da ich mein jetziges Touristvisum,double entry aus Kuala Lumpur im November aendern lassen werde in Chiang Mai, in ein Non Immigrant O Visum und das dann in eine Extension,werde ich dann berichten.Leider muss ich diesen Weg gehen,da mir mein Pass mit den vorhergehenden Extensions in Kuala Lumpur gestohlen worden ist.Mein jetziger Pass ist nur ein Jahr gueltig.Aber mein neuer Pass ist bereits auf dem Weg nach Chiang Mai.Ein einfaches "umstempeln" meiner vorherigen Genehmigungen ist nicht moeglich.Obwohl ja alle Unterlagen hier sind.Das hatte ich gehofft.Aber einen Rechtsanspruch auf das alles habe ich nicht.

    Re: Visa rules will be tightened to stop abuse

    @songthaeo,

    so wie mir bekannt ist, werden Non Immigrant O Visas nur von Konsulaten Thailands im Ausland ausgestellt. Diese Visas sind die Voraussetzung um in TH eine 1jährige Aufenthaltsgenehmigung zu erhalten. Meiner Meinung nach werden Non Immigrant O in TH nicht ausgestellt.
