The fee for the single re-entry permit is 1,000 THB and the multiple re-entry permit is 3,800 THB.

(2) Notification of 90 days : the holder of any type of long stay visa must make a Notification of staying over 90 days; every 90 days:

•At least 15 days before the due date by registered mail

• Between the 15th and the 7th day before the due date online : https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do

The first application for extension of visa is equivalent to the notification of staying in Thailand over 90 days. But in no way a notification of staying over 90 days is a substitute for a visa extension.

– Any leave and re-entry of the Thai territory resets the count of days.
