Cheap 1 Year Ed Visa - 12,500baht

This aint a bad way to save money on visa runs, it's 12,500baht and even includes 200 hours of online Thai tuition, don't know if anybody bothers with that bit.

They give you all the paperwork you need so you can get your Non Immigrant Ed Visa, it's valid for a year and just needs renewing at your local immigration every 90 days, that costs 1,900baht per time, still works out cheap, maybe give the Thai tuition to someone as a gift and the visa for yourself

The company is called OLA International and they also do that TEFL rubbish aswell.

I thought a good deal, prices normally are around the 20k plus baht else where, most people I know are not interested in learning Thai, but it's a real cheap way for a one year visa if your young and out shagging a different bird every night..

That's a bloody good price and an ed visa too is a good deal... I always got a non imm b, renewed ad infinitum, but it certainly wasn't as cheap as that.

Stuff the Ed visa. A whole bunch of people in Chiang Mai paid up front, think it was about 30K, a few months later the joint closed up, all the visas were revoked and everyone was suddenly on overstay. Still no word on getting their money back. Good luck. Perpetual tourists visas are the go. Alternate between Laos and Burma every 3 months, keeps you on your toes it does.

^ Apparently it was farangs behind the scam, but I don't know the details.

I know at least 3 people personally who got ripped off. They were always telling me I was mad doing these tourist visa runs.

Anyway, if anything is sold with 'cheap' and 'ed visa' in the spam, I'd personally stay as far away as possible.

Not your mates are they Dawg?

If they were don't you think I would have mentioned it? Also if they were would I have mentioned the TEFLer rubbish, or would I be telling you how great being a TEFLer is and sticking a referral link in where I could earn $200 per sign up?

If we were going to do referrals I would stick Bruces old Ban Phe school in there, he actually has a business degree so knows how to do business and also has a good reputation, bit different to some Koh Samui school I have never heard of and I should mention I have never been to Koh Samui, but hey, your a dick

Relax big fella I was just kiddin. We all know you don't roll that way, that's why this forum is still free and not whored out to advertisers. Cheers for that.

Obviously not much room for referral bonuses and such with the ultra low price.

The way it should be done, and probably Bruce is doing it that way:
- the school has to be accredited by the Thai MoE.
- the curriculum has to be approved by the same MoE
- the student enrolls for a whatever course and leaves all necessary documents in the office
- the school will go to the regional MoE-office in order to receive documents from them, stating that Mr. so an so is officially a student.
- with all documents the student has to apply for an ED-visa abroad
- the student has to study (in-class) for at least 180-200 hours per year!!
- after 90 days (the school got some new documents from the regional MoE-office), the student and the school go to the immigration for a 90-days extention (THB 1900). This has to be done every 90 days, but some schools (and immigrations) will extend up to 1 year immediately.
- on a regular base the school has to send reports of progress and attendance to the regional MoE-office.

This is official!!!!

There are many ways to do this un-official, but that only depends on the willingness of the Immigration people $$

Anyway, we stopped with our ED-visa program; we did do approx. 125 students in 3 years and during that time, Immigration people started to behave really greedy and started asking money although we did everything according the rules.
We stayed open until our last student turned 50 and decided to go for a retirement visa.
