Student VISA Requirements

VISA Requirements

Once a student’s application to study at CRIS has been approved, the student will need to obtain a Non-Immigrant ‘ED’ visa to enter Thailand. This visa will be extended once your study commences. In any case, DO NOT enter Thailand on a tourist or transit visa, as they cannot be extended to cover your period of study. The school will prepare documentation including an official acceptance and/or recommendation letter for non-Thai students to obtain and renew their visa at a Thai embassy or consulate. Once a student gets the VISA, it will initially only be valid for 90 days (according to the Thai immigration rules), then the student must extend to a one year VISA after that. CRIS staff will help students by facilitating and all visa concerns. For more information you may contact our administration office.

Documents required for a VISA

  1. The official letter of acceptance from CRIS
  2. Four recent 3×4 cm photographs (less than 6 months old)
  3. A copy of your passport information page(s)
  4. A medical certificate (less than 6 months old)
  5. Visa fee

Re-Entry Regulations

Students wishing to leave Thailand for any purpose during the period of their visa must apply for a RE-ENTRY PERMIT at the Immigration Office. If they fail to do so, when re-entering Thailand, their visa will be cancelled automatically.

90-Day Report

For every 90 days spent in Thailand, foreigners must complete a “Form for Alien to Notify of Staying Longer Than 90 Days” and hand it in to the Immigration Office on or before the due date.
