Is there been any reports (even prior to Corona) of immigration turning up at your registered hotel a week after overstay?

I don't recall any reports of it happening.

But you have to remember the overstay rules.

One day overstay and five day overstay.  Both arrests involved a hotel.

I am on a Non-O Multi (marriage). My next 90 day out/in is April 30. I know l can get a 60 day ext. at CM. Does anyone know what documents are required at CM and does my wife have to be present. Could she chat to IO via a video call rather than risk herself as well?

With an embassy letter, you should be able to get serial 30-day extensions as you do not qualify for any regular extension. Depending on where you are applying, you may get hit with requests for various other documents that are difficult or impossible to satisfy. In my view, this is almost certainly a notification that you need to use an agent if you really want an extension in Region 3.

Sounds good, in Chiang Mai. They didnt want much, just the embassy letter. But they gave me just 20 days for beginning. That really doesnt make any sense, they force people go there more often than usual. Looks like heaven for the virus. Thanks for the info

I entered Thailand on the 7th of March, so those among you will work out that my 30 Days run out tomorrow. I when to immigration Yesterday afternoon and told them that I need an extension and because I cannot find work here as you all will know all the schools, colleges and universities are closed. I have lived here for 15 years and I have been a teacher of English in both Private or State Owned Schools. I was retired from my last job as the Labour Office told the school that they would not extend my Work Permit and The area Education Office also said they would not supply the necessary paperwork for extending Visa and work Permit. I am 63 years old. I do know that some Teachers who are older than me are still teaching, because the Director of their schools told the necessary departments that He or She wanted to keep the Teacher. So I am not working or being paid by anyone and when I read about the Automatic Visa Extension I thought they have thrown me a life line. But it turns out not yet. So as of tomorrow night I will be overstaying.  

Hope you get something sorted and dont get into any bother with an OS

"Just a matter of time".

 

Seems like they are stalling as long as they can hoping the emergency decree will be lifted first.
