The Multiple Entry Tourist Visa Topic (METV)

Recommended Posts

I have back to back METVs as well, albeit I'm not spending a ton of time in thailand at a time anymore (5 days max per trip, every 2-3 weeks)

A couple times immigration at suwannnaphum has asked how long i'd be spending , and the occasional flip back and forth between metv1 and metv2 ... (metv2 was issued about 3 weeks after metv1 expired)

 

if it ever becomes an issue i'll probably just buy thai elite, just a bit of a hassle as im under 20.

I'm in the USA and want to get the 6 month METV. I understand that I need to leave Thailand before 60 days but can get a 30 day extension on that (for a total of 90 days). I need to show the LA consulate proof of my flight leaving Thailand. Here's my question:

 

Should I schedule the outbound flight to leave Thailand before the 60 days is up, or is it ok to schedule it before the 90 days is up?

I'm getting an METV again and I'm scheduling my flight back for 8 months. You don't need to schedule it back 60 or 90 days, book it when you intend to fly out.

Correct.

 

I book my flight with the return leg (back to Farangland) approximately 5 months after the outward leg when I apply for my METV. This is fine. I should say this is not with the LA consulate.

does the METV involve a re-entry permit (and the attendant fee) ?

It is a multiple entry visa so no re-entry permit is needed.

As the maximum permission to stay thats granted on entry with this visa is 60 days the outbound tickets should dated within 60 days of your planned entry, however, most consular services would not enforce that and have their own policies. You should be ok with 90 days, but it is best to ask LA directly.

As Ubon Joe says.

 

However, if you were to make an entry on the expiry date of the visa to squeeze another 60 days out of the visa, any exit during this 60-day period (after the visa expiry date) would need a re-entry permit if you wanted to come back in and keep the same permission to stay until date.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

 

I just called the LA consulate (should have done this before, obviously, haha). They said the flight out of thailand date is up to me, so can be anytime within the 6 months.

I don't understand this. US residents need to be employed to apply for this visa!!!!

Unless you have been 10 years in the company and are given sabatic leave of some sort, no one I know will have a job when they return from 6 months in Thailand. Stupid requirement. I am between jobs and I wanted to stay 3 to 6 months in thailand. I am probably best enrolling in a thai language school and get a 90 day visa.
