She is going to apply for a tourist visa, right? the Round-trip Airline Ticket, Hotel Booking in China, copy of your passport infomation, residence permit and work visa, Bank Deposit Certificate is required. The processing takes 4 working days from the embassy.

Sorry Terry, it isnt going to happen. Marriage only I'm afraid, no girl friends. Even if you're married, by the time you've got a copy of an invitation letter from your company inviting your wife, stamped by the Foreign Affairs office and a full medical etc, you're probably talking upwards of 50k baht to even get a look in at a residency permit. For some reason they're making it either impossible or extremely costly to get any kind of visa now. You would need a 'Z' accompanying non-working spouse visa by the way.
