What kind of visa entry did you have that you wanted to extend?

Personally I'm planning to extend a 90 day permission to stay based on marriage (before it expires in May) at KK, by another 60 days. I'm hoping that will still be possible. Regards

 

(Apologies for distracting from Welshpete's original thread)

does the Thai government just want us all to go home by any means necessary?

 

Now there's an interesting thought!  I wonder if that might have already occurred to the current government and Immigration authorities?

They want us to get a letter from the Embassy stating we can't go home right? That implies they'll only extend our visa IF we can't go home, that is to say, they want us to go home and not be here.

 

What did the OP's letter to the British Embassy contain?

I may need to extend a METV if flights/borders are closed. I don't understand what authority Embassies have in regards to Thailands immigration policies. There's a pandemic, borders are closed, does the Thai government just want us all to go home by any means necessary?

Yes!

I got a 30 day stamp at the airport, I'm a UK citizen. Will I need to get the embassy letter before I can extend?

Have you extended since you entered? If not, you can get 30 days without the letter.

Then you can extend a further 30 days by paying the 1,900 Baht fee.
