If you have a work permit and Non B Visa in Thailand or you have a 12 month extended marriage visa or retirement visa and you wish to leave the country then you need to apply for a re-entry permit at Thai immigration before you leave the country.
Should you leave the country without a re-entry permit in your passport then you will invalidate your Thai visa and you would have to start the visa process again with a 90 day visa and applying to have it extended. This is not only time consuming but also costly.
In order to complete the re-entry permit at Thai immigration you need to show the following:
- – Your passport
- – Passport Photo
- – Copy of passport front page, visa page, extension page and Departure page (TM.6)
The fees for the re-entry permit has not changed over the years and the fees are still 1,000 THB for a single entry permit which is once off but if you are going to be leaving and entering Thailand numerous times in one year then you might just as well opt for a multiple entry permit which costs 3,800 THB at Thai immigration.
