I am confused, I obtained a non immigrant visa from my home country, do I need to go and exit the country every 3 months? Some of my friends did not exit the country, what will I do?
The one-year non-immigrant visa issued in your home country would require a 90-day visa run in Thailand. If, however, you have already extended your non-immigrant visa to a longer visa, extended retirement visa or an extended marriage visa, at the Thai immigration office, the 90-day visa run is no longer needed. You do however need to do the 90-day reporting of your address at Thai immigration when the visa has been extended for 12 months.
