What is an Extension of Stay based on Thai Family/Spouse?

Ideally, before arriving in Thailand, applicants should first obtain a single or multiple entry Non Immigrant type O Visa from the Thai Embassy in their country of residence. This avoids the need to change the Visa type once arriving in Thailand. One benefit of the Non-Immigrant O Visa, versus a retirement Visa, is that it is possible to have a permit to legally work in Thailand with this type of visa. Legally working does require the addition of a Work Permit, but the Visa type will not need to change. You must be legally married to a Thai or have Thai children to apply. The single-entry Non-Immigrant O Visa is valid for entry into Thailand for 3 months from the date of issue. The multiple-entry Non-Immigrant O Visa is valid to enter Thailand for 12 months from the date of issue.

When entering Thailand with a “Non-O” visa, you will be granted permission to stay for 90 days. The 90-day permit of stay can be extended for 1 year at a time based on Thai Family/Spouse, subject to meeting the documentation and financial requirements.

Important Information

We have listed several important pieces of information for you to know about the Thai Family/Spouse extension applications.

1. Address notification – You must confirm your current address or residence to the nearest immigration office every 90 days. If you are not in the country when the report is due, after re-entry to Thailand, the next 90 day notification becomes due 89 days from the date of re-entry. The date of entry counts as day 1. These are commonly known as 90 day reports.

2. Re-entry Permit – If you intend to exit and re-enter Thailand during your 1-year extension of stay, you should opt for the multiple re-entry permit. With this permit, you will be able to exit and enter Thailand under the same visa and extension of stay without additional steps being required. If you must exit Thailand temporarily while you are on a Single-Entry permit, you must obtain a re-entry permit from your local immigration office or a Thai International airport before you depart from Thailand. This re-entry permit keeps any remaining permission of stay from your extension valid on re-entry. The entry clearance office will permit you to stay until the expiry date of your extension. If you intend to stay in Thailand for the duration of your 1-year extension, then you do not need a re-entry permit.

3. Finances – The Thai Family/Spouse extension is valid for 1 year and can be renewed each year providing you meet the current financial requirements as set by the immigration bureau.
