Recommended Posts

Normal tourist visa extensions are still at CW, while covid extensions are at new location. Correct?

If they don't announce anything clear, you could just go to immigration on April 9 and pay 1,900 for an extension, couldn't you?

Yes he could and yes he could stand with 100s of ppl and yes he could catch covid and yes i agree with him and will be overstaying too.. 89 days to be exact.

So Covid extension on a 60 day Tourist Visa (TR) that has been extended 30 days is still at CW? 

 

Thanks,

is it possible to get an agent to hlp me get extension to my 30-day visa expiring in a week (Jomtien)?

I'm not intending to spend a whole day queuing and finding I've not got the right documents.

Any recommended agents?

When I lived there, the best prices were on Soi Bukow just north of South Pattaya Rd.  The agent right next door to the immigration office can likely also do it, for a bit more.

For sure it's his first extension. Also he is asking about "extension to my 30 day visa"

He means extension to visa exempt entry. Easy to do.

He can read up on what's required (piece of cake) or use an agent.

In that case wouldn't he exempted because he's arrived after March 1

Hope seeing some update in the next few days else I will have to do the extension myself regardless. No news yet right?

Nothing has actually been announced. Even if folk that arrived after march 1 end up having some concessions one would think that the first extension to a visa exempt or tourist visa will still be the standard extension along with 1900baht.

Just read an article in the newspaper that cannot be mentioned that immigration expect things to be finalized shortley,

It says that those that got 30 day extensions after March 26th will have them renewed automatically every 30 days until the end of the crisis. 

For those on long stay extensions nothing will change. You will have to do your reports and extension as normal.
