Welcome Message

A very warm welcome to The Mirror Foundation's 'Thailand Volunteer!' website.

If you are interested in joining one of our programmes as a volunteer, or have already registered, then this is the place to come - all the information you need is within these pages, whether you want to know what to bring, or what the programmes involve, our fees, or many other questions you may have. Registered volunteers, after logging in, can update their own information form, as well as check the progress of those who will volunteering on the same intake - the ability to communicate with those volunteers is also available, as we think it can be reassuring to talk to others also embarking on the adventure.

The Mirror Foundation runs a well-established, successful, and much loved volunteer programme, for individuals and groups who wish to work with the hilltribes of northern Thailand and other ethnic minorities in the region.

Volunteering is not for everyone, but those who put heart and soul into their time here, leave with an experience they will never forget.

Visa rule changes

It is now possible for citizens of G7 member countries, to get 30 day Visa Exemption on arrival at Thai land border crossings.

Previously, 30 day Visa Exemptions were only available to those who arrived by air, and subject to the nationality of the individual. However, a new rule, which was brought into effect in November 2013, allows citizens of UK, USA, France, Italy, Germany, Canada, and Japan, to cross into Thailand by land and receive a stamp allowing a 30 day stay.*

The rule that an individual can only stay for a maximum of 90 days within an 180 day period has also been scrapped, so there is no legal limit to the number of times you can enter the country within a certain period. This wil be down to individual border crossing officials.

*Always check the actual date that is stamped into your passport - errors can be made, and officials are not always aware of new rule changes. Remember, this is not a visa, it is a visa exemption.
