Yes. 

 

You can apply up to 45 days early (30 at some offices).

When extensions can be renewed 30 days prior to expiry(45 at some offices) I wonder why anyone would wish to delay renewing until the last minute. 

I am in other province...will be back short before..if it is possible..will be very nice, normally i apply 2 weeks before !

You can do it but any problem you have could put you past the the date your extension ends.

I agree with you Ubonjoe !(think like you too), but if its money probleme 1 month will not help me, if it is some other kind of papers issues..can be done in one day !

 

I am still using the Ambassy letter like the past 10 years at the same office....

 

Thank you all ! have a nice day

 

PS : do we still need to season the money 3 months before with the Ambassy letter ?

If you have proof of 65k baht income from your embassy you do not need to show any funds in a Bank.

If using the money in the bank option or a combination of income and money in the bank it is 2 months for it to be in the bank now.

You can apply for an extension any time up to day before expiry. However they dont like it in Immigration. Two weeks is the latest they expect but if you have problems with funds being sent on time then take your chances. If there is a delay you are buggered. If you can show 65K funds going into your account every month for the previous 12 months prior to application then you are ok, or a combination. 800K in the bank 2 months befor "date" of application. Alway's better to hedge on the safe side and have it at least 2.5  tp 3 months before. Things happen, delays ( I have had it before). Don't work to their deadlines. If you want to apply sooner then you have to have the money in sooner.

The new rules are for all offices. For the combination option you have to keep in the bank after you apply for the extension is not clear.

You can apply on the day it expires too.

It is sensible to apply early as you suggest, but there is no ‘two week expectation’ as far as I know.

ubonjoe, if i renew my visa 30 days before its expiry... when does the next 12mths start from ?

original expiry date or the date new visa was obtained ???

because of this uncertainty. i think that is why many people leave the new application, until the last few days... 

i tried doing my last one at jomtien-one day before expiry... had hiccup with imm officer, so i went straight to lawyer-i had my new extension by 10am the next morning{last day}.

All extensions always starts at the end of your current permission to stay, so you lose nothing by extending early.

This was told to me by the senior officer in Changwattana last year when I changed from family to retirement. As we have both said you can apply as long as your visa is in force but they will tell you two weeks before is expected.
