Payment Terms

Payment Terms

At New Stamford, we require a deposit of the first 3 months’ program fees to initiate the visa paperwork process. The remaining balance must be paid upon arrival in Thailand or within 7 days of receiving the Ministry of Education (MoE) approval. Refunds for visa refusal will be granted after deducting 6,500 baht, with proof of official refusal. Cancellations without proof of visa refusal are not entitled to a refund. Please note that the MoE approval is valid for 30 days, and you must apply for your visa within this timeframe to ensure that the approval remains valid. If you do not use the MoE approval within the given timeframe and require a re-issue, there will be an additional cost of 2,000 THB, and this option is only available one time.

What are embassy visa application fees, immigration extension fees, IMMIGRATION RE-ENTRY PERMIT FEES AND etc.?

The Embassy Visa application fee for non-immigrant class ED is approximately 2,000 Thai Baht. Some Thai Embassies/Consulates accept payment in local currency, some only accept USD. Please contact the Thai Embassy/Consulate where you intend to submit your visa application for more details.

All non-immigrant ED visas are valid for 3 months, and they can be extended up to a maximum of 12 months. Students must visit the immigration office in Chiang Mai every 90 days to renew their visas. The current cost of the extension is 1,900 Thai Baht, payable to immigration. We will provide you with all the necessary paperwork in advance and remind you when it’s time to visit immigration.

To ensure that your visa remains valid, it is important to obtain a re-entry permit at the immigration office each time you leave Thailand. A single-entry permit costs 1,000 Thai Baht, while a multiple-entry permit costs 3,800 Thai Baht. Your visa will be revoked if you leave the country without obtaining a re-entry permit. It is advisable to consult with our school before departing Thailand to ensure that you have all the necessary documents and information for obtaining a re-entry permit. Our team can guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
