How can I extend my 2 month tourist visa???

Recommended Posts

Hiiii I plan to go 2 Thailand in January and my visa stamp normally allows 2 months if it is a tourist visa

however some sites said that I can extend it to a 90 day visa?

How could I do that???

If you have a regular single entry tourist visa you will get a 60 day permission to stay (stamp).

You can apply at the local immigration office to extend this stay by 30 days.

ubonjoe will come to the thread with more details.

you can apply at any immigration office, while providing a valid reason for the extension. 

they will consider your application and if approved you will pay and get the notation in the passport done in front of you.

Your initial entry is for 60 days (59 nights). If you are from most countries, you can get an almost automatic 30-day extension at a local immigration office on payment of 1,900 baht. A few nationalities (typically from African countries) cannot get the 30-day extension of tourist entries. There can be other bases under which you can apply to have your permission to stay extended. Many countries' nationals can also do a quick in/out at a land border for a fresh tourist entry of 30 days (visa exempt) or 15 days (visa on arrival).

 

What is your nationality? Do you have Thai family members?

Of course you have to apply, fill a form, provide photo and pay.

Chances that such an extension is denied are minimal.

Assuming that you are a genuine tourist, don't have a history of problems with entering Thailand, overstays etc.

He has to pay before doing the application and it could still be denied and there would be no redund

Payment is due only if the application is approved, ie if the extension of stay is granted.

Apply at the nearest Immigration Office during the final week of your stay. 1,900 Baht.

They are rarely refused.

🤔🤔🤔

To take the OP a further step, would a 60 day Tourist Visa, extended 30 days, be feasible twice a year?

How about a 30 day visa exemption thrown in the mix as well?

Ostensibly to spend 6 months-ish a year here.

Sounds like he did a copy and paste from one of many clueless websites.

I have never heard of anyone being denied the 30 days extension on a tourist visa, wherever your nationality. It's automatically extended for a 1900 baht fee.
