There are two types of visas which Thailand offers to the volunteers which are non-immigrant visa with ‘O’ category or else there is another way you can come to Thailand as a volunteer. There is a visa called visit visa or tourist visa in which there is a condition for the person that he/she has to return back to his/her country within 30 days of time and can return back then or else his/her visa gets expired. Isn’t it simple now to visit Thailand and volunteer in such teaching programs!
Visa O is required for those who wish to perform charity work in Thailand. However, there are those who come to the country with a tourist visa but they have to make sure that they leave the country every 30 days and then come back after it has been renewed. The visa fee is $80 and is valid for three months only. However, you can apply for an extension at the immigration office and it could be extended for up to one year. There are some countries whose residents are supposed to apply for the visa at the Thailand embassy only, so make sure you have all the details clear.
