was in PP last days and stopped by Lucky Lucky to get a 3 months Vietnam Visa, asked her what I should do since I'm on a EB visa here already almost 4 years but I'm not working and too young to get a Retirement visa, she told me not to worry, after the elections the rules will change again. So since I'm not of the worrying kind that's what I'll do. (3 months Vietnam multiple entry is $85 btw, no paperwork required)
Yes. I have the same feeling, hence why I just settled for a 6 month EG.

Seems a bit fckd up for those of us with families (with or without marriage certs), who happen to be between jobs.

"Bye kids. Hope you have a good life. Daddy has to go away for awhile".
Excuse my ignorance, but what difference does this make? Exit, return, a one year visa. No problem, if you have $300 and a WP, right?
Okay, I'll excuse your ignorance. As kiwi said above, I'm between jobs. I don't have a WP atm because I am not employed.

Before my visa comes due in a few months, I have a choice of:
- find a job and get a WP;
- start a business and have a business licence; or
- suck it up!

Even without a job or business, I will still be a father. Though, I guess that doesn't count for much these days.
OK, but as you are not working now, your WP for this year covers you until 31 March next year, right? Normally Dec 31, but you get the extension until March 31. So gte part-time hours anywhere, get a letter, get the WP before Mar 31 2019, fixed. Am I missing something here?

The problem is not your WP, it is the timing of your visa, right?

Time to volunteer at an NGO, try PSE, or PM me, I MAY know someone looking for teachers

^^ My WP expired Dec 2017.

I appreciate your suggestions and offer of assistance. I just wish the powers that be would take into consideration all of the various possibilities. Even for those of us who have been married for over 17 years but have no marriage certificate. We are family. I have dependents.

I have no marriage certificate due to corrupted local officials who told me it would cost $650, that was in 2001.

UT, for what it's worth we're in the same boat for the same reason.

The Ministry needs to recognize 'family' not just 'marriage'.

I'm not quite in the same boat but have unregistered marriage of 10 years. I was told at the time that not registering just meant they would not be able to move to the US which I'm not interested in ever returning. Now have 2 beautiful girl and could not think of leaving them even if it meant sitting in prison just to stay.
I qualify for and have an ER EOS but was just thinking is there not a way we could come up with some kind of a 'business' that would qualify for WP's of coarse there dosen't need to be any profit or actual inventory like online teaching or something ?

curious, as ur not legally married, I assume ur name is on your child's BC, But does that make u the legal father in Cambodia,
In Thailand it does not.
Legally the child is urs by marriage to the mom, ( before or after the birth) or court order.
For Americans by submitting a " Consular Report of Birth Abroad " makes the child a US citizen, but still in Thailand, without the above, ur not the legal father, weird but...
MY daughter became a US citizen, even thou in thailand i was not yet recognized as the legal father ( we weren't married) .

Just asking.
Does ur child have ur countries passport?
