Our Partner in Thailand will help arrange your visa. After sending your documents through to them, they will help you to get everything organized, sort your visa and make sure you have all the information and confidence you need!

You will arrange your visa between 2-4 weeks before you fly.

You will need to apply for a "Non-Immigration B-Visa" at your nearest Thai consulate. You have a choice of applying for either the single entry, or multi entry visas. Either will do, and it depends on whether or not you intend to leave the country when you are teaching. The cost of this visa is to be paid by you. You will also need a welcome letter from the school you are teaching in. This normally takes 3 working days to process.
