The Thailand Non-Immigrant Other "O" Visa
For those seeking to stay in the Kingdom of Thailand for a long period of time, the Thai "O" Visa is looked at as a possible option for entering and staying in the country. The "O" Visa is exactly what its name implies, it is a catch-all immigration category intended for those who do not neatly fit into one of the other visa categories. The best way to describe the Thai Non-Immigrant "O" Visa is simple: Miscellaneous.
Who is eligible for the Thai Non-Immigrant "O" Visa?
Strictly speaking, the Thai "O" Visa can be obtained by anyone, but it was not really intended for wide usage. The most likely person to obtain a Thailand "O" Visa is a spouse of a holder of a Thai Non-Immigrant Business "B" Visa. Even if the spouse doesn't have employment or business in Thailand they may still be eligible for an "O" Visa based upon the other spouse's Thai "B" Visa.
What are the downsides of the "O" Visa?
One of the major downsides of the Thailand "O" Visa is the fact that depending upon the reason the visa holder was granted the visa they may or may not be able to obtain a work permit. Generally, only those in Thailand on a Non-Immigrant "O" Visa who were granted the visa based upon marriage to a Thai "B" visa holder will be entitled to obtain a work permit in their own right. This is not a hard and fast rule, but if one's intention is to come to Thailand for the purpose of starting a business or engaging in employment, then the Thailand "O" Visa is probably not the correct Thai immigration option.
