Another report from this morning - October 18th - confirming the situation at Phetchaburi Immigration.
"I encourage everyone to check on their own personal circumstances and situation, but here’s our experience and insight:
We talked with the Sr. Immigration officer at Phetchaburi office;
He indicates the law (after October 31, 2019) requires all new OA Visas, AND any annual retirement extensions based on those visas to have health insurance."
Not old news. Only a few hours old and just a confirmation of the post yesterday stating the same thing. I hope this information is useful for those in the Phetchaburi area with extensions of stay renewals happening soon, so that there are no surprises when they turn up at Tha Yang.
