All foreign applicants aged between seventeen and thirty years must be holding a category O non-immigrant visa and have a parent, guardian, or guarantor to support their application. Foreign applicants over twenty years of age must be holding an ED non-immigrant visa. All foreign applicants must have prior approval by the Thai Ministry of Education.
Once approval is given by the Thai Ministry of Education, the applicant can apply for the "non-immigrant ED" visa; this visa cannot be issued in Thailand.
Once the first year's visa needs to be renewed for the second year of the program, the Ministry of Education will review each student's record. This includes, but is not limited to, academic record for the first year, student conduct score, and any previous record of visits to Thailand.
The Ministry of Education reserves the right to approve or decline the request for the visa extension. I-TIM is not responsible for the granting of the one-year visa extension. Therefore all students are completely responsible for their record of stay in Thailand.
