Extend your tourist visa

Thailand no longer has entry restrictions for tourists, so you can enter with either a Tourist Visa (60 days) or On-Arrival Exemption (30 days).

Once you’re in Thailand, you can stay beyond your tourist visa expiry date by switching to another visa type. You don’t need to leave Thailand to make a change to your visa – we take care of it right here in Phuket.

Get in touch with us before your current visa expires and we’ll be happy to walk you through the process.

Frequently asked questions

Do you guarantee that I will get a visa?

We can’t guarantee it, but your fee is fully refundable if your visa application is declined. We do not give refunds once visas have been issued.

How long does it take to get a visa?

The time varies depending on the visa type you apply for. Retirement visas generally take 2 to 3 weeks to be issued. Elite visa membership can take up to 8 weeks for consideration. Student (ED) visas currently take 30 to 45 days (as of April 2023).

Is it possible to work with these visas?

You can’t work on a student (ED) visa, retirement visa or Elite visa. If you want to work in Thailand you must apply right away for a non-immigrant O or B visa and a work permit.

Can I re-apply for a student (ED) visa?

Yes, but this will depend on how many ED visas you have had before, what language you studied and how long for. Contact us with the details of your previous visas and we will let you know what your options are.

Do I have to make visa runs?

No, you don’t need to leave Thailand for the duration of your visa. Any extensions are done right here in Phuket.

What nationalities can apply?

Anyone can apply for a visa, but if you are from a country in Africa, the Middle East or South Asia, you will likely be rejected for a student (ED) visa.

Can I change my non-immigrant visa for a student (ED) visa or retirement visa in Thailand?

It is only possible to change from a tourist visa or on-arrival visa exemption to another visa. You will have to leave Thailand at the end of your visa if you have any other visa type.

Is it possible to leave Thailand and return once I have a visa?

Yes, you can! You can leave Thailand and maintain your student (ED) visa by obtaining a re-entry permit before exiting. You can only get a single re-entry each time.

The retirement visa can get a multiple re-entry permit to use for the entire year.

Thailand Elite visas holders can leave and re-enter as often as they wish.

Can I change schools and/or province and keep my student (ED) visa?

This is not possible. The Thai Ministry of Education does not allow students to keep their ED visa when changing school. You will have to apply for a new ED visa.
