At Silk Legal, we recognize that being a successful immigration law and visa advisor requires a combination of both in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience. Our professionals have years of experience guiding clients past the hurdles and pitfalls of the bureaucratic maze. Whether our clients are seeking to study, get married, or simply to retire in Thailand, our immigration experts are well-versed in the specific rules and regulations and always take our clients’ entire situation into consideration in order to account for any overlooked implications and to obtain the most optimal-solution for their immigration goals.
In terms of visas, we are able to advise clients not only as to the basic rules and conditions, but our expertise also includes advice regarding long-term goals such as planning and preparation for permanent residency, as well as assistance with more immediate problems, such as visa extensions and overstay issues. We are also capable in tackling and designing solutions to more challenging and complex immigration matters that are becoming increasingly relevant to more and more people in the present day, most particularly, issues related to dual nationality, and seeking refugee status. In addition to our role as an advisor, we are also able to serve as our clients’ advocate and seek redress in administrative court for unfair government decisions in those situations where our clients have a just cause.
The specter of global terrorism and cross-border crime have forced Thai immigration officials, as well as the Thai embassies and consulates all over the world, to adopt a more stringent enforcement of visa policies. In addition, Thai immigration law itself already comprises a complex web of acts, ministerial regulations, and departmental rulings. With over 30 different grounds for entering and staying in the country, the complexity of Thai immigration law and visa rules should not be underestimated.
