Education Visa (Non Immigrant ED)


Non Immigrant ED Visa (Education Visa) is issued to foreigners who want to study in Thailand.

Education Visa applications are made at either a Thailand Embassy or Consulate abroad or the Thailand Immigration Bureau.

Foreigners who receive a Education Visa cannot work in Thailand because studying means "not working".

  • Visa application form completely filled out.
  • Recent (4 x 6 cm.) photograph of the applicant.

  • Academic record and the Student ID (if currently studying).
  • For those wishing to attend seminar, or training session, or internship,  a recommendation letter from the concerned organization addressed to the Consulate is also required.
