What visa can i get , stuck here for now

Recommended Posts

Came in feb on tourist visa 30 days, I allready had one extension due to expire on 11 april.

Since no flights are going to dublin or belfast ( ive tried ) i am now stuck and dont think by the 11 april there is going to be any change on flights ( what do you think ?  ).

I am still married to thai but shes in UK and wouldnt send me marriage cert so i cannot go that route.

Im 53 yrs old.    Can i get 30 60 90 day extension ?    I spoke to visa agent MOT SERVICES and they quote me 3600 for a 30 day extension with a letter from uk embassy ( dont know if that price includes immigration fee of 1900 baht )  MOT SERVICES also said they can get me a 30 60 or 90 day extension without a letter from embassy on special circumstances whatever that is,  i am still waiting on a reply from them since yesterday .

Any one can advise me would be great. 

THANKS

Afaik you need 15 days left to convert to a non-o visa for retirement, so now it's too late for this.

Get a letter from your embassy and get a 30 day extension.

After you got this extension you can convert to a non-o visa for retirement, and then an extension based on retirement.

From my research, you need at least 20 days left on your current visa to get a non-o retirement visa and when you apply foran extension due to corvid, you initially get 20 days extension  and have to go back for a further ten days .

  If you apply for a corvid extension, best to do it 3 days before your current visa expires, which will give you 23 days left

Currently there are still a few flights, if you plan to fly back home any time soon you better fly now, in 2 months this might not be possible anymore.

You can get an embassy letter with which you can extend by a month at a time, but if you decide to stay longer you should get a one year retirement extension, then you don't have to visit the immigration once or twice a month.

The fee for both extension of stay is 1900 baht.

You need 800k baht in the bank for 2 months (or proof of 65k baht income) to apply for the extension based upon retirement.

Skyscanner is showing flights with Aeroflot, Qatar, Thai (via Munich), Eva (via London) and more, but you might have to be quick as some of them are stopping in the next few days I think.  More complicated routes with ANA, Asiana etc are also available.  Where were you looking?

What is the forecast as far as air travel in April?  Are they going to completely close down Suvi?

Nobody can give a reliable forecast, all i can contribute is my personal opinion:

Only very few people are allowed to travel, so the airlines don't have passengers and they will cancel even more flights than they already did, maybe until there are no passenger flights left.

After this point your only way out of Thailand would be by private plane or if your country sends a plane to evacuate its citizens. Thus i recommend to leave as soon as possible if somebody doesn't want to stay in Thailand for longer.

Fair prediction.  Well, one can hope that some land borders may open up sooner than air travel does. But who knows? All these neighboring countries have their own ever-changing timeline as well.  Stupid covid! 🙂

A pharmacy or a hospital pharmacy would be my guess.
