Hello All, Glad to have found a site for just teachers. I have gone round and round on Thai Visa and it's been difficult. Went to Laos last month for Non-B, missing document from school and the police clearance. Came back with a tourist visa. My question is this. I am going back to Laos with hopefully all the required paperwork. When I come back with the Non-B, what is my next step? I have been here two years, but worked for a language school. They required I had a work permit, but not a provisional license. So, now that I am at a private school and I have been accepted to teach they are telling me that when I get back I need to go to the TCT and get the provisional waiver myself? I would think the school would do that for me? Don't they need a representative from the school there, or can they just send me with the paperwork?. Then after that, do I go to the Labor Office for the work permit, or does the school do that for me? The admin at this school does not seem very happy or helpful towards me. I told her that I would like to make sure all the paperwork is there, so I don't have to come back again on a tourist visa. I was very nice and polite and even brought her some cookies. There was no expression, just silence. So I have a feeling I will be doing a lot of this on my own. This school is good, other teachers are nice and I want to stay, but this hurdle will be a tough one. Any comments on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
