Visa extensions in Bangkok: New location added for tourist visa extensions/90 day address reports to ease pressure at Chaeng Wattana

The Region 1 immigration has decided to open an additional tourist visa extension office at Muang Thong Thani from today. 

 

Tourists can go to a new building that is part of the police central investigation unit there.

 

Muang Thong Thani is a sprawling housing estate a few kilometers from the Government Complex also on Chaeng Wattana Road. 

 

Immigration came under mounting criticism yesterday after large queues of tourists stranded in Thailand clogged the complex. 

 

Social distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus became all but impossible as the complex was swamped.

Region 1 chief Pol Maj-Gen Piti Nithinonthaset said that the extra location would ease pressure on the existing facilities. He claimed that people had to sit apart on chairs with a gap between each other. Also those queueing had to remain 1.5 meters apart. This created problems as space at the Government Complex was limited. 

 

Pictures published on social media yesterday indicated that little of what the chief was suggesting might have been taking place.

Naew Na reported that immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang was behind the move because he cares for foreigners and his staff. 

 

The following could be done at Muang Thong Thani: 90 day reports, reports of address (Article 38) and tourist visa extensions. 

 

The housing estate is on the other side of Chaeng Wattana Road set a couple of kilometers off the main road. It is outbound from the government complex.

You can apply for the standard 60 day extension to visit your wife at your local immigration office.

As every one else is doing or in some cases not doing.

There has been plenty of time for people to Get THEMSELVES organised.

but seem to be waiting for someone else to do things for them. Or  hoping the Government suddenly say ok no problem we will sort it out (cold day in hell springs to mind).

You have options 60 day extension to visit wife. If already had letter from embassy seems to be the way forward there.

Extension of stay married or retirement.

Agent.

You may to wait awhile for the page to open. Site is very slow today (perhaps overloaded from so many people trying to get on it).
