60 Day Covid Extension available after January 29th? in Thai visas, residency and work permits Posted 18 minutes ago OP, you would be well aware that no announcement has been made as that would be front page news. Even if not announced prior to Jan 29 does not mean very much. They have history of doing announcements when they wish. Perhaps using lotto numbers. Fact is the world is in more precarious situation than before. Stopping extensions based on covid situation would raise the bar for stupidity.
