i am getting out of bed about 6.30am on friday morning and take the train up to mo chit and thereafter heading up to muang thon thani in the hope of securing myself with at least a 30 day extension to my 30 day visa exempt stamp

i arrived in thailand(into don muang airport)from siem reap in cambodia on march 9th,2020  and will have my uk passport,1,900baht,2 passport size photos but wont have the tm6 immigration form which i had upon arrival but which was lost soon after my opening few days in bangkok 

Also i wont have any uk embassy letter as this is to be my first tourist visa extension application

I will probably be taking along considerable patience as the matter might be drawn out and time consuming

Any hints or tips to facilitate my application would be most welcome

The stamp from my arrival on march 9th is in my passport as is the stamp for my expected departure9(april 7th)

Don’t worry about that stupid tm card, yes it’s a requirement but they don’t really care about them. 

 

i lost mine and it wasn’t an issue at all, it’s just a piece of paper with your name, date of birth and pass port number that’s hand written, all of which is in your passport anyway,

 

people lose them all the time.

 

if it’s your first extension you won’t need a uk letter

Just stay at home.

To travel now is quite stupid to start with.

Chance you meet someone with Corona is like 0.0027% in Thailand, chance you die on the road is bigger, happy travels.

Are you going to bring proof of residency?  Are you staying in a hotel?  I currently am at a hotel, and I'm an american going to extend a visa exemption next week as well.  I'm still a little confused as to the exact requirements.

most of the year i live in greece

That won't help the Thai Immigration.

 

Next time scan all important documents in and send them to your email account.

 

Then you've got access to it from anywhere, should you lose something.

 

  Best of Luck!

Probably too late now, but be there for 6:30 if you want to get it done at a reasonable time, not wake up at 6:30. Although it's a different building and visa type, I showed up at chaeng watthana this morning at 6:30 and was still number 55 in the queue. There will be far more people doing the visa exempt extension so you'll pretty much guaranteed get a worse queue number.
