– I am a British national currently staying in Koh Samui on my vacation.
I entered Thailand with a tourist visa and was granted a permission to stay for 60 days until the end of this month. However, I wish to stay longer. What should I do?
You may apply for an extension of stay at any Immigration Office in Thailand (www.immigration.go.th) where you may be permitted to stay for another 30-day period. You must do so before your stay permits expires, otherwise you will be fined 500 Baht for each day you overstay in Thailand.
– I am a British and I just finished my study in Bangkok. Now I want to work with a company in Chiang Mai. Do I need to do anything?
You need to apply for a change of visa status, and apply for a Work Permit.
You are therefore recommended to consult with the Immigration Office (www.immigration.go.th) and the Department of Employment (www.doe.go.th) accordingly.
