I can only apply when the Uni provides a new contract and associated papers for 1) Immigration Office & 2) Labour Office. Stupidly they (uni) have a rule not to prepare the papers more than 7 days before expiry of existing contract and yes, it does piss me off.Do you not apply around 30 days in advance?
I always try to leave as much time as possible before the expiry date in case of hiccoughs.
My source was told to come back on September 28. His expires on the 30th.
He has submitted his application to KC with 5000 bath and was told to come back on the 28 by the Captain in that office.GL your post from 16 mins ago- I have always believed you should never leave your "Annual Extension"until the last few days.Maybe if you do,maybe you ll be OK but if the IO s
start causing problems you are in a difficult position & then you maybe start to have overstay probs with all the associated costs.

Whats this hidden recording device. Don't you have a mobile phone. If you do, why do you have to hide it. You must be living in some kind of spy thriller fiction novel.
I and I am sure other forum members would like to have some further clarification on what happening in the immigration officers in Surin city and Kap Choeng.Is @gotlost saying, even if you have all the correct paperwork prepared, and meet all the conditions for an extension, i.e., financial, you still have to pay 5,000 or 10,000 baht to get the extension to stay in Thailand stamp in your passport, depending on which Immigration office you use? If that is what he is saying, that is blatant corruption and should be reported to a higher authority. If that was tried on me, I would say I had no money and would return at a later date. The next time around I would go armed with a hidden recording device to capture the demand on tape (so to speak). I am not due to renew my extension until the end of the year, although it is within the regulations to do so up to 45 days beforehand.
It was seasoned correctly.
I've never seen the point in leaving it until the last minute, it's not as though you lose days by doing it early.This is after being told a lady in Kap Choeng to wait until the extension was just about due !
