30 day extension on a free 30-Day entry?

Recommended Posts

Hi. It's ages ago since I saw the this question asked and do not recall the answer, which may well have changed anyway.

I usually get a couple of 60-Day Tourist visas each year, and sometimes a 30-Day extension on one or both of those.

However, there is a situation coming up where it would be very helpful to save the time not departing to a neighbouring country to get a 60 Day visa,.. once having come back from the Philippines (where I understand they do not offer Tourist visas for any other than their own nationals.

..

Short answer yes or no .. can I get a 30-Day extension to a 30-Day entry?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers .. wishing us all a safe and virus-free year.

As others have stated, there is absolutely no problem getting an extension of your visa exempt entry.

 

As I understand it, it is not quite true that the Thai embassy in Manilla will never issue tourist visas to foreigners. The problem is that they are very restrictive in when they will do so. If you have been recently in Thailand, and are not in the Philippines on a long stay visa, they are very likely to refuse.

How much is a 30-day extension to a 30-day visa exempt entry, where can it be done (at the local Immigration office?), what is required?

 

Many thanks,

The fee is 1900 baht.

You apply for it at the designated office for where you are staying.

A completed TM7 form with a 4 X 6 photo attached. Copies of you passport photo page, entry stamp and TM6 departure card.

Thanks again, Ubonjoe. I was scheduled to go to Savannakhet next week for the initial Non-Imm 'O' Multiple Entry based on marriage but I am concerned about being locked out, as it were. Can I get 60 days based on marriage on a 30 day visa exempt entry, just in case?

At this time Laos is not a problem.

If needed you could get a 60 day extension to visit yoru wife of a visa exempt entry or the 30 day extension of one (most offices).

I am in a similar situation, looking to extend 30 days on a 30 exempt but I have an additional problem as no Tm30 form has been completed for my saty at my condo(staying 3 weeks) 

My 30 day visa ends 25th of March and I move onto Pattaya tomorrow and will check into a hotel which will at least fill in a Tm30. 

Then a few days later I will go and apply for a 30day visa extension at Jontiem. 

 

Am I likely to have any issues because a tm30 wasn't registered for my condo stay and/or will this affect my 30 days extension application? 

 

Thanks in advance

No issues since they only want to see your latest report for where you are staying.

Had the same situation for a family-member: Got into TH on Visa-Exemption on March 2nd.
Yesterday at Immigration they said: It cannot be done there just by extension and a visa-run is needed.
So are the Immi-Offices acting different?
