This has probably been dealt with before but I can't find the necessary info.
I quess what I'm after is a summary of the procedure re visa and WP when changing jobs.
I was teaching at a university up north and had a non imm B visa and WP valid untill the end of contract which was to be 31st October 06.
I broke the contract to take up a much much better position with a large Thai corporation in Bangkok. I finished with the uni on the 31st August and started with the new employee the next day the 1st of September.
I sent the WP back to the uni and they assured me they would return it to the labour dept.
Now the new employee has never employed a falung before and is a bit confused... They seem to think my visa is valid untill the 31st Oct and I tried to tell them NO it expires with the WP.
The uni are quite OK about me quitting because they know the new job is too good to pass up and they have been helfull in advising the new mob on procedures.
Anyhow am I right in assuming my visa is void seven days after finishing work with the uni and am I right to think my new employee has to supply the necessary documents to extend my visa according to the length of their contract with me.
Thanks in advance, ajarnoz
Yes that's correct you have to hand in your old work permit or have it renewed so that it pertains to your current employment.
^ Will have to IME get a new work permit....I don't think they are transferrable.
Basically you need to cancel your WP and that'll give you 7-14 days to leave the country.....get some paperwork from your new employer (a letter from the MoE is generally needed) to extend this period of time to give them enough time to get your paperwork in and obtain a new WP for you and then extend your Non-imm B accordingly.
