The school does not guarantee that you will get your student visa outside Thailand, but the process in Thailand is guaranteed. All the necessary documents will be provided.
You must enter the country on a non-immigrant ED visa issued by Thai Embassy before obtaining student visa within Thailand. C.L.M. is able to give you the necessary papers for this process.
If you have come to Thailand on a tourist visa, either issued by Thai embassy, or the 30 day stamp you receive on arrival at the airport, you will have to leave the country to apply for your student visa. Singapore, Laos, or Penang Malaysia are options.

Tuition & Visa Extension Processing Fees:
The tuition fee for student visa.
Due to the extensive paper work and traveling required to submit all papers to the relevant government offices, the school charges a fee of Baht 5,000 per single student visa, to cover the application and processing of student visas. All dependents (couple, other family members) can be covered under one student visa, and the cost is Baht 7,000.
The visa fee does not include the immigration visa fee, which is currently: 1,900 baht per visa, per person. New students need to pay 1,900 baht per person once in the first 3 months
Please be advised that after obtaining a student visa or work permit in Thailand, you are required to register with the immigration office every 90 days. Registration is free.
According to Thai government regulations for student visas, students are required to pay their student fees for the duration of the visa (1 year) in advance.
If a student ceases to study before the year is completed, they will need to obtain a “cancel visa letter” from the school, to inform the immigration. They will need to bring their passports. (Prepaid student fees will NOT be reimbursed.)
According to Thai law, students living in Thailand on student visas are NOT permitted to work. A working visa (work permit) is necessary to be allowed to work in the country. Illegal work will lead to the cancellation of the student visa.
