One year(marriage) in Savanakhet

Post by Udonhoward » February 6, 2019, 1:41 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has done this (a multi-entry one year based on marriage) recently? Are there are any new requirements due to all the recent changes in the immigration regs?

I'd appreciate that. I'm trying to determine my best option, planning in advance with the new regs.

I am currently on a retirement O-A extension, I am considering changing to a visa based on marriage. The question is, if the marriage ends in divorce, can I revert back to an O-A retirement visa if I meet all the requirements?

You can get a new extension of your current O-A, by changing the reason from retirement to marriage (assuming you meet the conditions for marriage).

You can change back to retirement for a later extension (again, assuming you meet the conditions).

Thank you for the info. I thought my O-A would expire and I would have to apply for a new Visa based upon marriage. This information makes me feel allot better about changing my status from retirement to marriage and back again if need be. Yes, I meet requirements for each extension.

Thinking about a return to Thailand to live after about 10 years back in the US.
As I scout the board here it seems that if I come in from US on a 1 year multi entry visa based on marriage then at the end of that year a new year 1 year visa can be obtained at Savanakhet.


Is this correct? And is there another boarder crossing that will do the same?

Thanks

A suggestion.

If you meet the requirements by a bank deposit then it is a good idea to show a single balance of over 400k but less than 800k if applying for the marriage extension, you may be pressured into a retirement extension otherwise.

It would be the same for income

Yes Mate You are correct CAN Do at Savanakhet,NO Problem....Only other Borders that you can get a Multi-Entry Non-Imm " O " Based on Marriage are Penang & Ho Chi Minh City but I Think both require the 400k in the Bank,Where as Savanakhet Does NOT Require ANY Financial proof.....I Just Did mine & Got back home to Nong Khai ONE Hour Ago..... :D :D :D

You do, though each entry can be extended for 60 days to "visit your wife"
