Re-entry Permit

11 posts in this topic

Currently I have a Tourist Visa and am going out of Thailand for a non-O Visa base on retirement as I have multiple Visa Exempts and enough Tourist Visas from Vientiane to warrant a warning stamp.  If I am successful in getting the re-entry permit and then I get the desired non-0 later is it possible to re-enter using the non-0 even though I already have a re-entry permit?

 

I'm just caculating my options prior to my non-O visa run for possible problems.  Right now if the worst were to happen the re-entry permit will give me at least two more options to get my ducks in a row.

I think you will find you will not get an re-entry permit based on a tourist visa. Once you get the Non- Imm O and retirement permit you can then apply for a re-entry permit (single B1900, multiple 3800).

Okay I was thinking the TM-8 could be used for a re-entry permit with a tourist visa at the local immigration office or at an airport such as the Suvarnabhumi airport.

 

Thanks for the response.

There is no rule saying you can not get a re-entry for a permission to stay from a TR visa.

If you get the Non-O this will be used for entry (fill departure card respectively and point to visa).

What papers are required for a re entry permit? I haven't done one in a while, but I think it's a TM 8, copy of the passport ID page and copy of my new extension. Anything else?

TM8 form with a 4 X 6 photo attached.

Besides what you wrote. visa, entry stamp and TM6 departure card.

Not true. I have done this many times no problems. Here is what they look like. And single entries are 1000 baht not 1900.

Thank you! I will print out another copy of my departure card entry stamp and then make a copy of my new one year visa extension when I pick up my passport at Phuket Immigration tomorrow

But have you gotten a 1000 baht single re-entry permit on a TR visa recently?

Actually yes. I got a SETV in Yangon in late January, came back to Bangkok for a week or so, left Thailand for over a month and acquired a re-entry permit at Changwattana before I left.

When I returned to Don Muang (which is notoriously not one of the friendlier entry points) last month the IO at first could not understand why I used a re-entry permit and was out of Thailand on it for so long. But she was not confrontational or questioning - it was more bewilderment. I just calmly told her that I try to avoid coming by Visa Exempt as much as possible and she stamped me in no problems.
