B Visa, no work permit, through gf company ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, whats the requirements for B visa? or multi B ?

 

My gf got currency exchanges business

 

I know I be not able to apply for work permit through her I think, she got like 4 thai staff but pay tax for 1 only, as they choose to get bit more salary etc... I think that what it is..

 

anyway, would I be able to apply for B visa instead tourist visa, if she give me letter or something, or company info ?

 

if so, what would be the difference, between touris and B for my long term stay here ?

 

 

Thank You

Kris

It's filing intent to get wp, then visa, then wp.

You can get the B visa after the company submits info to labor dept and you get a letter saying you've started the application for wp.

Then your can be issued a b visa.

Then you come back (must leave country to get b visa) and go thru the wp application process.

At least, that's how I've done it.

ok nevermind i got answer, its wp first then visa...

 

Maybe, but you got a incomplete one...

 

You have basically 2 options with non-B :

 

1- You come here to work for a Thai company, and it will be the WP way as described by MM

2- You come here "to make business here" but sent by a foreign company: no need of WP

 

 

I used the option 2) for 1 year before my ED visa. Never worked here and never got a WP.

You have it correct MM.

 

Not sure how the OP can get a work permit to run an exchange booth though as I reckon that will be a thai occupation only......... the paperwork presented to both the dept of labour (for the work permit) and the consulate (for the Non B Visa) must be colourful.

Agreed. The likelihood of obtaining a WP is low.

 

I should also mention to the OP, that, as I recall, the B-visa is only good for 1 month when you initially apply for the WP. If you don't get it in 1 month, you are without a visa and have to start all over. If you obtain the WP, then the visa is extended another 11 months.

This visa is not the same as the one Idefix used initially, as far as I know, though I am admittedly, no expert on visas and their ins and outs.

I am only speaking from my own experience of the system.

If he goes to HCMC in Vietnam he can get a one year Non-Imm B visa that can be stretched to last almost 18 months.

We now know who bought that little currency exchange booth that was the subject of a lot of back and forth.

Okay, earlier you said you got a good answer from Thaivisa board.

 

What did they tell you?

 

As you said, you are looking for a 1 year visa (of some sort), and not a work permit. Have you found a way to get one that doesn't involve too much lying?

I got my Non B multi entry visa without a work permit, as do all other farangs now employed at my work.

 

Maybe stop trying to go down the dodgy routes and man up and get the proper legit paperwork..... it is not rocket science.

I reckon an education visa is just perfect for you, it will provide a 12 month visa and as a bonus you will learn the Thai language...
