Some people still managing border runs even though I thought they were dead in the water days ago

Recommended Posts

I'm jealous..
My visa is running out fast, and last time I asked for advice in this forum a few days ago was told Visa runs are pretty much done with, over.
Since then I see a few people have managed it.
Dammit can anyone help and suggest a border ANYWHERE what will let me do a damn run?

Nobody seems to know anything apart from conflicting information.

Why not use the new powers to get an extension without doing a border run?  They're detailed here on the forum.

So I'm thinking this is your 4th or 5th thread re your issue. Come on.

Today Thai authorities announced extension available to folk even with extension already. You will need show cancelled flights etc.

Some say to you need to snow cancelled flights, and some don't.
I'm from UK and the flight are still running.

Of course this is my fourth or so thread, I've still not got any answers, and this is a problem affecting pretty much all tourists here in Thailand.
If it doesn't effect you you are welcome not to open the thread.

So you  have  "seen"  "heard" others  have achieved border  run success. Ask them.

Thinking you will need to demonstrate that you are not able to leave. eg email from airline confirming cancelled flight.

I don't see confusion. Your visa is ending.

You have option to return UK. Granted not simple or palatable. 

GO.

Stop with side step.

I'd rather listen anyone else but you jack.
You can't help but insult.

Threads on here.
Successful run even yesterday.
It's always 'too late'   but then someone manages to pull it off.

Bye the way, Why would the UK be on that list if no flights are even cancelled?
Makes no sense.

Thai Immigration doesn't want you to stay in Thailand longer if there are flights available to your home country.

 

It's not personal. They don't want any foreigners to stay here longer if there are flights available to their home countries.

 

Visa runs are over but maybe the few people you see managing it have totally different circumstances to you, different type of visa or extension or nationality.

 

Yes, there are too many confusing variables in Thailand but there is one constant here and that is you can go home.

UK flights aren't being canceled but they are placing heavy restrictions on who can FLY IN on them.

 

AFAIK, there are no restrictions on you being able to FLY OUT on them.

If that's my only option so be it.
I'm just looking for clarity.
People like you try to give it, People like jack can't help throw insults as they give 'advice'.

You are probably right, but UK is on that visa extension list for some reason.. yet most flights are still running.
So I'm still unsure completely.

UK is on the list as it is a country where "Coronavirus 2019 (Covid-19) is now getting more serious".  It's part of the preamble to the workaround being offered by Thai Immigration, which is detailed in the remainder of the document.
