ED VISA / Student VISA Thailand
At ALA Language School in Bangkok, we have a number of different ED Visa / Student Visa opportunities for you to explore. The duration of the visa depends on your preferences, nationality, and payment flexibility. The visa options available are:
How Long Does The Application Process Take?
Typically speaking, the ED visa application process will take between 1.5 and 2 months, depending on your nationality and current waiting times at the Ministry of Education and the Immigration Bureau.
Your visa must have enough time for the visa application process to complete, so we strongly advise that you begin this process as early as possible.
All visa applications, conversions, and extensions will be done domestically at the Immigration Bureau at Chaengwattana (Division 1), Bangkok, Thailand only.
NOTE: The ED Visa procedure is subject to change based on the Ministry of Education – if in the event of a policy change, we will update our information accordingly.
The team at ALA will guide you every step of the way. There is a lot of red tape involved with the Thai ED Visa application process, particularly when it comes to extension of stay in Thailand, etc. – however, please rest assured that we will help simplify the process and make it as efficient and painless as possible, for your convenience.
