Basically my passport expires in July 2015 and is in my Maiden and we have booked a 25 day holiday to Thailand in July also in my maiden name.- No problems!
Then we were asked to move to Malaysia for work. We thought 'oh great we can just tag it onto the end of our Thailand trip- we will lose money on the flight we were going to get on the way back from Thailand but will save money since it costs us only £100 to get from Thailand to KL rather than £1000 or more to fly from UK to KL.
So heres where it gets tricky and where we have a lot of questions. lets say we will both be getting jobs in KL and therefor need to get Visa/ working permits/ dependency pass.
Firstly, how long does your passport need to be valid for to get a Visa? (if its 6 months then I'm fine, if its 18 months- I'm not and will probs have to change Thailand flights = lose money)
Does it matter Visa-wise if its in my maiden name and will I be able to change it in 6 months time without having to leave the country (when we are in Kuala Lumpur)?
Can we move to Kuala Lumpur straight after traveling in Thailand or do we need to go from our country of origin?
I think that is all of my questions currently.
Hope someone can help us!
Thank you so much for your time
