New Rules for ED Visa Holders – Study More Hours?

Starting from November 2014, there have been numerous reports from Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket (not Pattaya yet) that Thai language students will now have to attend classes for 4 days per week, for 2 hours per class, in order to extend an ED visa, effectively doubling the required hours of study from 4 to 8 per week. If students don’t study the required amount of hours and do not enroll for another course of study after six months, their visa may not be extended after that. This post at explains the new rule pretty accurately.
Previously, Thai language students had to attend classes only two times per week, for two hours each, in order to be eligible to apply for/extend a Non-immigrant ED visa. So far, it seems, the new rules are not yet being enforced in Pattaya, though.
