A re-entry permit can be secured from a Thai Immigration Office or International Airport. The fees are 1,000 Baht for a single re-entry, and 3,800 Baht for a multiple re-entry permit.
To apply for a re – entry permit , you will need: Passport with a valid Thai visa (you cannot get a re – entry permit on a 30-day Visa Exempt Stamp or Visa On Arrival) Copies of the photo page, current visa page, and immigration departure card. Copy of extension stamp page (applicable to Non Immigrant Thai visas )
You can only enter Thailand through a land border using the 30 day visa exemption twice per calendar year. To cross more frequently, you’ll need to get the appropriate visa in advance of travelling. This doesn’t apply if arriving by air.
There’s no official limit on how many times you can apply for a re – entry permit . However, if you’ve spent more than 4 of the previous 5 years since gaining a green card outside the United States, you’ll only be issued a re – entry permit valid for a single year.
A reentry permit can be denied for any of various reasons, including if you forget to include the appropriate documents or fee. One obvious reason for denial is if you have a reentry document already and it is still valid.
Those who arrive at the airport without a prior visa will continue to receive a 30 – day stamp up to 6 times per calendar year. Extensions at Thai Immigration for the visa exemption stamps remain to be 30 days for a fee of 1,900 baht.
A reentry permit establishes that you did not intend to abandon status, and it allows you to apply for admission to the United States after traveling abroad for up to 2 years without having to obtain a returning resident visa . Reentry permits are normally valid for 2 years from the date of issuance.
You get a visa put in your passport, so when you arrive in Thailand , you will get a stamp on the visa, and you can then stay for 60 days. You can leave and enter Thailand as many times as you want, as long as your entry is before the visa “Valid Until” date, each time you enter you can stay for 60 days.
A permanent resident or a conditional resident in the US who plans to travel abroad for a period of more than one year, needs to get a reentry permit . If your stay outside the US is going to be for a period less than one year, you do not need a reentry permit , your green card will suffice.
You can enter Thailand as many times as you like. You will be given 30 days visa exemption if you enter by air and 15 days if you enter by land each and every time. In your case you will need to use your visa when going to Thailand for the initial 18 days as you will be entering by land and staying longer than 15 days.
In order to apply to become a Thai Permanent Resident, you must meet the following criteria: You must have had a Thai non-immigrant visa for at least three years prior to the submission of your application. You must be a holder of a non-immigrant visa at the time of submitting your application.
Tourist Visa with SINGLE ENTRY is valid for 3 months from date of issue and allows a single stay of up to 60 days. If exiting Thailand before the 60th day all remaining days of that entry are lost. It may be possible to extend the 60-day stay by a further 30 days by visiting a local Thai Immigration Office.
Re – entry permits are valid for up to five years at a time, and must be renewed . According to the ICA website, PRs who leave the country or stay overseas without a valid re – entry permit will lose their PR status.
If you are abroad for 6 months or more per year, you risk “abandoning” your green card. This is especially true after multiple prolonged absences or after a prior warning by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the airport.
If your REP has expired , you must book an appointment using e-Appointment to apply in person. You will need to submit a completed Application for REP (Form 6) with the supporting documents. You may be asked to provide other documents and information to support your application.
