60 day extension, or a 1 year extension, if neither of these suit, then an embassy letter and a 30 day if your lucky.

Have to do a 60 day extension non imm o. May have to also do a tm30 if the io asks. Wonder if the io at CW would send me back to the new office to do so or do both the extension and tm30 out of the goodness of his/her heart? 💓

I have the option to travel 1.5h and do it in person or use an agent that say he can do the whole process by mail. I still have over 2 months left on my last entry stamp so I did not take my decision yet. 

 

Extension of stay based on marriage (1 year) is not the same as the 30 days extension that require the paper from the embassy... 

Will the agent do the 60 day extension? Maybe you can pm me the agents details please?

Except from the fact that they make them sit in the sun it takes only a couple more hours than normal. If you need to do like him then you should get there way earlier than he did. He left his home at 6:30. When I was living in Bangkok by that time I would already be waiting in line and about 100 peoples were already there! This place is pure hell!

According to the news article posted in the OP, tourist visa extension were having an EXTRA location opened for doing them. In the above video when at CW they were told that it's not true, that CW was closed for tourist visa extensions and ONLY the new place in the middle of nowhere was the place where tourist visas could be extended. Is this true??? This looks like an absolute nightmare to get there and an absolute nightmare to get through the process in the heat and sun.

 

I'm also shocked how many people in the video are on tourist visas. Is this only for tourist visas or also for people on visa exempt?

 

Also, in that video (starts around 14:10 in the video) it shows him having to hand over an Embassy letter and him having to sign to certify that it's a true copy of it. Then the IO gives it back to him and says that he will need that letter again for the next time he comes to extend for another 30 days. Doesn't match up with what was posted in the OP.

 

Also, in the OP it says desks A, B & K have been moved. But SETV/METV extensions are at desk J, not K. I think desk K is for visa exempt only. Doesn't make sense to me. So desk J meaning SETV/METV will still go to CW, correct?

Hi, title of post says "tourist visa extensions/90 day report" -- I'm in Thailand on 30 day visa-exempt and not a tourist visa - can I also extend this at this new location? Can anyone post a link to the form that is required for this? Thanks!

Yes  a 30 day extension is possible. Same form, TM7

thanks! one more question -- I'm in thailand on 30 day exempt and have not yet extended. So this is my first 'regular' extension of 30 days -- do you think I still need a letter from the embassy or regular extensions are still given based on TM7, passport picture and copies of relevant passport pages?

 

Thanks

No embassy letter required, don't waste your embassy's time 😉

they need to open an office on the other side of bangkok

bang-na area.

so they still want us to use the skytrain and taxi to chang wattana and wait in long lines and HOPE you get everthing done in one day.

if not it is a repeat!!!

not really helping to prevent people from close contact.

i was going to get a gas mask, but since they are illegal i use the stupid cloth masks that do nothing.
