1 Year long work visa
Applying for a 1 year work visa is possible only after the work permit has been issued, in other words, the foreigner has already received the work permit.
Foreigners must submit documents for temporary stay in the Kingdom of Thailand for a period of 1 year, in order to receive a 1 year visa. You can apply for this visa and work permit at the Immigration Office or visa service center.
Applying for a visa and work permit via One Stop Service is convenient and fast. However, it is important that the person who submits documents at One Stop Service has certain qualifications as specified in the conditions of the One Stop Service. Currently, the foreigners' visa extension is facilitated by the Ministry of Labor.
Applying for visa renewal for the first time, the officer will take up to 30 days to determine whether to approve or not. When the license is near the end of 30 days, bring the passport to acknowledge the results of the consideration again.
If the result of the consideration is complete, the officer will issue a 1 year visa; but if the result is not complete, the officer will issue another 30 days visa until the results are complete.
Those who have been granted a 1 year visa and stayed in Thailand for more than 90 days must report to the Immigration Office. If you wish to travel out of Thailand, you must make a Re-Entry. Failing that, the Non-Immigrant Visa "B" will no longer be in power and your visa will go back to Tourist Visa or Transit Visa.
