What Is A Thai Business Visa?

- Important Points to Know about Non-Immigrant Business Visa Thailand
- Initial non-immigrant visa should be issued by the consulate in the foreigner’s home country, allowing ninety days stay in Thailand for single-entry. Note, it can be extended to one year non-immigrant visa as soon as the work permit is processed.
- One year non-immigrant visa is issued to the potential businessman not only to conduct business, but also to travel in and out of the country frequently.
- Non-Immigrant B-A visa for approved businesses can be applied by the company, where the to-be visa holder is willing to invest. Granting of such visa is possible under the jurisdiction of the Office of the Immigration Bureau, Bangkok. Once it is approved by them, they will advise the Royal Thai Embassy through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the issuance of the visa. The holder of this visa will be allowed to stay at least for a period of a year or so from the date of his entry into the kingdom.
