How does the procedure for the Education Visa look like?


We send a request to the Thai Ministry of Education for a Letter of Acceptance, stating that the Thai Ministry of Education will allow you to take a 6 month course at our school – that takes about 3 to 4 weeks.


With the Letter and other necessary documents you will need to leave Thailand / Visa Run / and visit one of the Thai Embassies or Consulates outside Thailand.

You have a choice of going to Malaysia / Visa Run / or any other Thai Embassy anywhere in the world.


After your return to Thailand with the Education Visa in your passport we will expect you at our school. We will prepare all the documents for a second letter from the Ministry of Education certifying your enrollment.

The letter will allow you to make 1 extension of your Education Visa at the Phuket Immigration Office – for the duration of the course without the necessity to leave Thailand.


If you wish to continue studying your chosen language for another 6 months, we will make it possible after paying for a new 6 month course and after obtaining from the Ministry of Education and Alpha Language School the new Education Visa documents.

There will be no need to leave Thailand for the duration of your whole course – 12 months. You will extend your visa at the Phuket Immigration Office.
