Non-B Visa and Work-Permit:

Therefore, before coming to Thailand, you should go to your nearest Thai embassy/consulate and apply for this type of visa. We will send you all additional necessary documents in order to apply for this visa.

If you are living in Thailand with a tourist visa or any other type of visa, you will have to sign a contract with the school and prepare the documents for leaving to a neighboring country in order to apply for a Non-B visa. You can do this in Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, or Myanmar. This may be done once you have arrived to your new school.
