Cannot get a visa (legally) within Thailand



Re: Visa Scam (PM Mailbag Friday, 12 September 2014) – You cannot get a visa (legally) within Thailand except for conversion to single O for purpose of getting a retirement extension. If you were paying 18,000 for an extension you were obviously asking for something ‘dodgy’, since an extension only costs 1,900 baht.

So while these ‘scam visa’ shops should not be in business the easiest way is for people not to pay a stupid price for something that is cheap to do if you satisfy the requirements. If you do not satisfy the requirements for extension or visa then any problems that arise after paying these type of shops are down to you.
