Thailand is the world’s 20th most populous country, with close to 67 million people. It is the world’s most visited city, according to the Global Destinations Cities Index, ahead of London. It will welcome 16 million international arrivals this year. According to the World Economic Forum, Thailand is the 13th friendliest country in the world. Iceland is the friendliest.
One of the country’s most unusual festivals is the annual Monkey Buffet, held in front of the Pra Prang Sam Yot temple in Lopburi province. More than 600 monkeys are invited to feast on over two tonnes of grilled sausage, fresh fruit, ice cream and other treats. The locals see it as a thank you to the monkeys which inhabit the village and bring thousands of tourists there each year. Buddhism is the country´s main religion – it is practiced by 95 per cent of the population.
Thailand is home to the world´s ninth tallest statue, The Great Buddha of Thailand, at the Wat Muang Monastery in Ang Thong province. It also has the world´s highest stupa - Phra Pathom Chedi at 127 metres. The country´s tallest building is the Baiyoke Tower II in Bangkok. It has 1,430 islands, among the most famous of which is Koh Phi Phi Lee – it featured in Danny Boyle´s film The Beach. The town of Kanchanburi is home to the famous “Bridge Over the River Kwai”.
The bustling administrative centre of Phuket is often overlooked in favour of the beaches, but there´s a lot to see and do (and spend your money on!) in Phuket. Having been recently upgraded to city status, Phuket City features an exciting mix of old and new, simple and sophisticated, peaceful and pulsating.
The activity in Phuket is nearly around the clock. In the early morning, stoic monks take to the streets on their daily alms rounds and the fresh market buzzes with restaurant owners buying ingredients for the day´s meals. Non-stop bustle characterises the daytime, and lasts well into the evening. Nights are reserved for enjoying good company, whether at a restaurant, a disco, a quiet bar, or a combination of all three.
Benefits and advantages
Foreign (non-Thai) nationals who register for our 1-year course of 200 lessons and pay the full tuition become eligible for a one year non-immigrant ED visa. IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to remain eligible for an ED visa, students must miss no more than 10 lessons in a given year. Upon entering Thailand for the first time with an ED visa, all ED visa holders are to contact the school as soon as possible.
Prerequisite for such a visa, the application for a course or course at an accredited school in Thailand. This can be ANYTHING! School, sports school, cooking class etc.
In plain language, as long as you as a student attends a course, completed this, you immediately get the annual visa. If you get to every year something different, new, one can therefore stay longer in the country and later make an application for a permanent residence visa.
Some courses are rarely visited, but are as a student on the paper because anyway nobody can prove whether they ultimately as can cook or have not learned the language before. (It does not have to be Thai! German, English, Russian, etc ..)
The cost is a little 25000-55000 BHT depending on price and urgency plus 5000, - BHT every 3 months (90 days) = total 15,000 BHT for the Immigration of the ED visa. But one but then saves the departures every three months.
Class and Study Time for One Year 200 lessons (every lesson is 60 minutes long). This meets the Thai Ministry of Education requirement for issuing one year Non-Immigrant ED Visa documents.
Non-Immigrant ED visa procedure and waiting times. In order to begin the process, first we will need to send a request to the Thai ministry of education for a letter of acceptance, stating that they will allow you to take a one year course with our school. This normally takes about 1 month, depending on the number of applications being processed by the ministry. After this letter has been issued you can take it, along with other necessary documents to one of the Thai embassies or consulates outside Thailand.
Most nationalities have a choice of going to Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore, or any other Thai embassy. However, citizens of some nationalities such as India, China, Pakistan and most Middle Eastern nations are required to apply for the ED visa in their home country. With the Non-Immigrant ED visa in your passport, you will need to come back to our Partner school on Phuket, and we will prepare all documents for a second letter from the Ministry of Education certifying your enrollment. This letter allows you to make 9 month extensions at the local immigration office (Phuket) for the duration of the course. Visa runs will NOT be required for the entire duration of the Non-Immigrant ED visa, saving you time and money. Furthermore, after your first year of study is complete, you may continue extending your visa at 9 month intervals for up to 2 years, as long as you continue to study with us.
