I am going to do my multiple entry Non-Imm O visa tomorrow at the Thai Consulate in Dubai....What is the normal average cost for this in various embassies/consulates???

Thai Baht base price is 5,000 so about what the local exchange is. Single entry is 2,000

Debothai, Please excuse me for jumping into this discussion. I am particularly interested in the process, timeline, and attitudes that you will experience in Dubai. I had thought of doing the same thing but heard Dubai was not friendly . There may be others who are also thinking the same.

I have never tried dubai consulate for doing visas, because i always go short term to thailand, but now I plan to move there...I think it will be as our american friends say 'pure vanilla'...
I personally know one consulate employee, and she told me that it is straight forward, about 500 dirhams...Anyway, I will go tomorrow and I will post my experience on the forum....

Can't recall the exact price but was roughly 110 English Pounds in Hull last year when I got mine. You'll have to do the conversion from that info.

yes around 5000 baht....that is correct...that is 610 dirhams.
Would I be able to obtain a work permit if i have this visa? I am in talks with a company for possible work in Thailand.

You are married to a Thai? A work permit can be issued on a non immigrant O visa but some Labor Offices do not know or want to do so from reports.

Yes my wife is thai and resides in Bangkok now. We are expecting our child in June/July, I may also be successful in getting a job in Thailand and I was wondering if the work permit would be feasible with my O -type visa. However my prospective employer has promised to do all arrangements regarding the w.p.

Copy marriage certificate, copy her ID and copy her house registration should be enough to get a non-O based on marriage.
Yes, you can get a work-permit on visa/extension of stay based on marriage.
(Not in Phuket according to reports)
Edit: Letter from your wife to the consular asking for the visa in Thai always helps.

Any updates on Multi Entry non O from Dubai? I still have my multi entry non o from last year in my passport. will this make it easier to get the same visa in Dubai?

There should be no problem in obtaining an WP when you have an visa extension based on marriage in Phuket.
Some of my friends did this without any major problems. ( but you need to have all the papers )
