Getting the Covid extension at CM, report from 30.03.

Recommended Posts

If you copy the TM7 it means the photograph will be a copy too.

 

Do you have any idea if they only need one actual photo (plus one copy), or if they want a fresh photo on each copy of the document?

 

Cheers

I had only one photograph glued on the original TM7, the copied TM7 did just have the black and white copy of my photograph, that was sufficient.

But i would recommend to always carry a backup photograph, just because you never know 100% what will be required when you go to get your extension and it would suck to be turned away for a missing photograph.

True always think ahead and take more than you need just incase.

Make sure you only attend the "Covid 19" queue if you had a regular tourist extension already. Today there were people who waited three hours in the queue, to then only be told that they didn't have a regular tourist extension yet, so they are wrong and have to go to the other queue/counter.

 

Are you  on a SETV/METV? Why did you need an embassy letter when about a week ago UbonJoe posted a thread with a directive from Immigration that there's NO NEED for embassy letters for a 2nd 30 day extension of a tourist visa? Was the embassy letter stating your name specifically or a general letter?

 

Aussie embassy refuses to give letters for people here on tourist visas, or so I believe as they said they only do it for
"long stay visas". This is absolute BS if embassy letters are needed by immigration!

Im on TR and i was required for an embassy letter for my 2nd extension. 

 

People should read more about real experiences in IO.

They are required. Early on ubon that police order did not require embassy letter.

Fact is all offices do. Some even have some ridiculous "extras" such as bring landlord along with you. Think Trad and Hua Hin to name a couple.

Im just surprised about the fact that you can apply for 3rd extension when you go pick up the remaining days on your 2nd. I went on friday, i got the remaining days, but they didnt say a word about I could come back.

Visa exempt, so same category, "tourist entry"

The memo was misinterpreted, this was not an order, but a suggestion on what to do. In theory immigration could issue extensions without an embassy letter (for any kind of visa), but i've not heard of a single case where they did it.

OP, Thanks for clear report. Especially interested in ability to apply for 3rd extension with new embassy letter at same time of stamp for last days "under consideration" visit. Think BritTim suggested possibility in another thread.

One win for the underdog

Is anyone sure we can't use the same embassy letter every month until the crisis is over?

 

It seems strange that we would have to annoy our embassies every single month.

Could someone upload a list of the documents actually required for a COVID extension in CM?

Which country's embassy are you using? The Aussie embassy as basically said "fuk you" to their citizens who are on SETV/METV or visa exempt and only issues them to "long stay" visas.

German, but this information won't help you.

I think most embassies are issuing these letters for all their citizens. If Australia doesn't do this, then it obviously sucks.

Have you tried to just request such a letter? Maybe their official stance is that they won't issue it, but if you give them a good reason there could be a small chance that they still issue you one.
