Type B cancel - 7 days to leave or not?

Recommended Posts

I am finishing employment and my Type B visa and WP will end on 31 May.  I was under the impression you are given 7 days to leave the country and will not be penalised if you do so.

However, my company's legal/visa agency - Deloitte no less - tell me I MUST leave before the date of my cancellation.  There is no 7 days period post cancellation.  This causes a huge disruption as I am still working up to my last day.

Can anyone tell me if Deloitte's advice is totally wrong?  Is there a "leave within 7 days" policy still?

Unless you work for a BOI company it is not automatic. You can go to your local immigration office, pay 1,900 baht, and they will give you an extra 7 days to leave the country. Take your termination letter to immigration when you apply.


Technically your permission to stay becomes void on the day your job ends.

Note that you can apply for the (denied) extension ,and get 7 days to leave the country, a couple of days early if you have the termination letter that states the last day of employment.
