Hey guys thanks for tuning in to nomadic travel. Today I’m going to be helping you out with the time multi entry visa. I know I had a lot of questions before I applied for it so I want to make this video and put up and help you guys if you plan on coming to Thailand for more than six months, or up to six months there are some limitations and requirements that I’m going to go over in regards to acquiring your multi entry visa and then keeping it without being penalized for overstaying. So first off you need to send in your actual passport, you need to send it down physically to whatever Thai consulate or embassy that is located close to you. I actually sent mine to the Los Angeles Thai embassy down there the consulate sent it back within three weeks I think. You also need to have a photocopy of the front page with your picture, date of birth, place of birth and everything on it. In addition to that you need to have proof of residency, if you’re an American citizen like myself I included my social security card, other than that you need to send about one hundred fifty dollars for the application. You need to send in a visa application as well with a little explanation of your intentions for your trip you need to have proof of where you’re going to be staying at a hotel somewhere. Mine was originally in Chiang Mai and I’ve spent a month on Koh Samui and I’m going on my second and third month on Koh Phangan, which I’m going to have to go to the immigration office by the end of the month to request my first extension, which is about two thousand baht to get your 30-day extension after each 60-day period. After that I’m going to need to leave the country and then come back again. I can do that up to two times which will allow me to stay up to nine months so other than that you will want to have proof of employment for myself. I have my own business registered in the United States so I provided proof of that and that took care of that. Other than that, you also need to get two copies of professional photos such as the ones that you took when you got your visa. Go back into a Walgreens or some place that takes professional visa photographs and send some new ones in along with the application, your passport, the fee and a copy of your flight Itinerary. already paid for preferably with return status, as well as your hotel accommodations and anything else that I listed. Most importantly, you also need to have over seven thousand dollars in your bank account and you need to have a verified bank statement proving that. You can’t just put seven thousand dollars in your account the day before you print it off you need to actually have that much money in your account and prove it . So if you have any questions just let me know. I’m sitting here outside of our bungalows here on Koh Phangan so if you have any questions please leave them in the comments below. I will provide links to the application as well as to my blog post about the multi entry visa for Thailand. Let me just show you the location here by the beach where I live… so yeah, every morning I have to wake up to this and over there you can see Koh Samui. So yeah, it’s really not that bad. This is probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and i look forward to spending another six months here. Not all at once, i’ll probably jump around some more maybe go back to the mainland for a couple months but if you guys have any questions leave some comments below. Please subscribe to my channel and i look forward to sharing the rest of my trip around the world with you as I will be travelling through Southeast Asia some of Europe and also South America. Thanks!
