Covid-19: Don't believe online fraudsters who can process your visa extension, say immigration

Thailand's immigration Bureau issued emergency advice to tourists about extending their visas amid the coronavirus crisis. 

 

Fraudsters have been going online on Facebook and other social media platforms saying that there is no need to go to an immigration office in person.

 

It can all be done for you for a fee of 1,200 baht. 

 

This is nonsense. You must go in person. 

 

Immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang and his spokesman Pol Maj-Gen Surapong Chaiyajan said that immigration were going after those responsible for preying on tourists. 

 

They asked for information about the fraudsters to be relayed to them by calling 191, 1599 or 1178. 

 

Those stranded in Thailand who need a visa extension must go to an immigration office in person with the required documentation.

I need to get my normal 1 year "Retirement" extension.  I have gotten it since 2015 meeting all the requirements.

 

This year I'm told to stay home.  Do not go anywhere.  The Prime Minister says I could be arrested and fined if I did.  Which is OK with me since I am 72.  I can stay safe and alive.

 

Immigration tells me I have to got to their offices to get the extension 2 times.  The first to drop everything off and pay the fee.  The second, the next day to pick everything up.  If I don't do this, I could be arrested and fined.  I can lose money and die.

 

The Land of Smiles.  So, what should I do?

 

 

Where are you mate ? 

Do you have to do it personally or can someone do it for you ?

"My second in command wanted to have all you tourists who dress like slobs at immigration executed but I said no. You can see he was not happy about that."
