Why Apply For Visa Cancellations Through the Thaiger?

When you are in doubt regarding the correct ways about visa cancellations, we are here to provide support and guidance. We can help you with your visa needs and make sure that the process is the easiest for you.

What is visa cancellation?

A visa can only be granted, refused, or cancelled by the immigration or a representative of the immigration. You can ask us to cancel your visa under certain circumstances, such as if your employment is terminated or if you’re leaving a job and starting another.

The labour department will issue you a receipt for the cancellation of your visa or work permit, which you must take to your local immigration office, where your visa will be cancelled immediately.

They then will then grant you a seven-day stay permit, allowing you to finalise your affairs before departing Thailand.

Things You Need to Know About Visa Cancellation

Before you cancel your Thai visa, make sure you understand the following:

Only Non-Immigrant B Visa Needs Official Cancellation

If you wish to leave Thailand, you may need to cancel your visa permanently. Typically, the only type of visa that needs cancellation is a non-immigrant B visa.

Visa Cancellation for Non-Immigrant O Visa for Marriage or Retirement

If you have a non-immigrant O visa for marriage or retirement, you usually don’t need to cancel your visa should you need to leave Thailand. You can simply leave before your visa expires. If you want to avoid accidental cancellation, make sure to get a re-entry permit before leaving the country.

Leaving a Job and Starting Another

If you’re leaving a job with one company and starting a job with a new one, you need to cancel your visa. You may need to leave Thailand and visit a neighbouring country to obtain a new visa, but you can also cancel your old visa and get a new extension without leaving the country.

Not Officially Cancelling Your Visa Can Cause Issues

If you have a non-immigrant B visa and you don’t officially cancel it before leaving the country, you may be faced with issues if you intend to work in Thailand again in the future.

Types of Visa Cancellation

If you want to cancel your visa and leave Thailand permanently, you will need to follow certain procedures and prepare the necessary documents. Depending on why you want to revoke your visa, various procedures and paperwork can be needed.

If your job in Thailand is terminated during your stay, your employer must provide you with a letter to that effect, which you may take to the labor office to get your work permit revoked.

The labor office will issue you a receipt for the cancellation of your work permit, which you must provide in order to cancel your visa.

Key Points:

  • Employer must provide termination letter.
  • You must provide the receipt for cancellation of your work permit for visa cancellation.

You may need to cancel your visa if you’re leaving a job and starting another. You may need to leave Thailand to get a new visa, but in some situations you may be able to cancel your old visa and obtain a new extension of stay without leaving the country.

Key Points:

  • Can cancel without leaving the country.
  • Takes time to prepare.
  • Make sure your visa is cancelled properly to avoid future problems.

You could technically leave Thailand without canceling your visa and work permit, but this is not the proper procedure and could cause you problems if you want to return to Thailand in the future. In addition, if you have a non-immigrant B visa and no re-entry permit, some immigration officers will refuse to let you leave the country. That’s why you need to make sure that you are cancelling your visa properly.

People have been asked to display their work permit cancellation receipt before being allowed to leave. This is to prevent people from quitting their jobs and remain in Thailand before their visa expires.

Key Points:

  • Leaving without cancelling visa is doable but will cause problems.
  • Make sure to have your work permit cancellation permit first.

It doesn’t have to be difficult to cancel your visa.

Common Thai Immigration Issues resulting in Visa cancellations

Failure to follow the correct procedures will result in applicants being denied or if they already have a visa, a sliding scale of fines and/or cancellations.

Incorrect Stamp in Passport

Even if the immigration officer is at fault, incorrectly stamped passports may cause serious problems, particularly if they go unnoticed at first. Any irregularities in the passport will potentially be kept accountable to the visa holder, so it’s important to double-check anything after an immigration officer makes changes to your travel documents.

Failure to Complete 90-Reporting According to Schedule

Ninety-day reporting will begin up to 15 days before the official 90-day mark, with a seven-day grace period afterwards. A 2,000 THB fine is imposed after the one-week grace period. If an individual is caught after failing to complete the 90-day reporting, the fine will double in price.

Overstaying Visa

Overstaying a visa can result in a fine ranging from 500 to 2,000 baht per day. When you leave the country, paying the fine at the airport is usually the simplest process. Depending on whether the offender turns himself in or gets arrested, overstaying for more than 90 days could result in imprisonment for a year or more.

Misunderstanding the Expiration Date on the Visa

When a person receives a new visa to Thailand, it will come with an expiration date that must be met before the person can enter the country. This is not to be confused with the visa’s expiration date, which is determined by the date the individual entered the country.

Failure to Attend Classes for ED visas only

Education visas are becoming more difficult to obtain. Attendance is often required in schools and institutes, and students who appear to be abusing the ED visa by not attending class may find themselves without a valid visa.

Failure to Obtain a Re-Entry Permit

Leaving the country, even for a weekend could invalidate your visa. This could mean starting the process of obtaining a Non-Immigrant B visa, applying for a work permit, and extending the visa all over again.

Termination of Employment

Technically, both the employee and the employer must report to the immigration office and announce the contract’s end. Extensions of 7 days are normally available for a premium. If an employer reports to immigration without the employee, problems may occur, such as overstaying without realizing it.

90-day reporting

Formally recognised as a “Notification of Staying in the Kingdom for over 90 Days”, the 90 Day Report is for anyone staying or living in Thailand for more than 90 days. You must complete this process to keep your visa active, regardless of your visa type.

The purpose of 90-day reporting is to confirm your current address and status with Thai immigration. Doing 90-day reporting can be a hassle, but don’t worry, we can help make the process simpler for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Visa Cancellation

Since the cancellation of the visa effectively makes you having to leave the country on the same day, it is important to apply for an extension of stay right after the previous step. The extension will allow you to stay in Thailand for additional seven days.

If your visa is cancelled, you will either need to leave the country immediately or delay your travel plans until you have successfully applied for a new visa.

Depending on the reasons for the visa cancellation, you may be refused additional entry visas.

Pursuant to your queries, you should not have signed ‘work permit cancellation’ document without receipt of your dues from the employer. A work permit of an employee will only be cancelled once an employee signs the ‘work permit cancellation’ document, which states that he or she has received all the dues.

Students may choose to cancel a student visa for a number of reasons. If you are looking to return home before your course ends, then you can apply to voluntarily cancel your student visa.
