Welcome to Phuket ED visa
You don’t need to leave Thailand to switch to an ED visa
You don’t need to make visa runs once you have an ED visa
Extend your tourist visa
Thailand has now (July ’22) cancelled all entry restrictions for tourists, so you can enter with a Tourist Visa (60 days) or On-Arrival Exemption (30 days).
Once you’re in-country, you can stay beyond your tourist visa expiry date by switching to an ED visa, for up to another 12 months. 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 before your tourist visa expires and we’ll be happy to walk you through the process.
Phuket education ED visa prices
Our prices include everything except immigration fees. We take care of it all, the only thing you have to do is provide recent photos, complete some forms and make one visit to Phuket Immigration Office with our representative to submit the ED visa application.
First, we make an application for a student letter from the Ministry of Education, then complete your visa application and submit it to Phuket Immigration Office. We also submit all visa renewals throughout your visa period – so there’s no need to leave Thailand.

Frequently asked questions
Do you guarantee that I will get an ED visa?
We can’t guarantee it, but your fee is fully refundable if your ED visa application is declined. We do not give refunds once ED visas have been issued.
How long does it take to get the ED visa?
Once we have your details, we make an application to the local Education Office. It takes them up to 2 weeks to issue the letter needed to submit with your ED visa application at Phuket Immigration. Immigration then take about 7-10 days to issue the visa. You should have at least 30 days remaining on your current visa when we begin the process.
Is it possible to work with an ED visa?
You can’t work on an ED visa. If you find work in Thailand you must apply for a non-immigrant O or B visa and a work permit.
Can I re-apply for an 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 ED visa.
What nationalities can apply?
Anyone can apply for an ED visa, but if you are from a country in Africa, the Middle East or South Asia, you will likely be rejected.
Can I change my non-immigrant visa for an ED visa in Thailand?
It is only possible to change from a tourist visa or on-arrival visa exemption to an ED visa. You will have to leave at the end of your visa if you have any other visa type.
Is it possible to leave Thailand and return once I have an ED visa?
Yes, you can! You can leave Thailand but your ED visa will be invalidated if you don’t obtain a re-entry permit before exiting. This should be applied for at the Immigration Office in Phuket Town and there is a small charge. The re-entry permit allows you to re-enter with the unused portion of your ED visa reactivated (not extended).
Can I change schools and/or province and keep my 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.
