Hi, anyone here who can offer good advice to me. Thanks in advance

I quite confused and just to make sure I going through tthe proper steps. Have few questions.

 

1.People mention non-O multi can apply for 60days extension. OR they also can apply for the 30days extension of stay (with embassy's letter) due to the covid-19.

So which one should i apply first? If i apply the 30days, after that can i still apply for 60days extension of stay? Or I apply for the 60days extension, can i still apply for that 30days (embassy's letter) later? or we can only choose to appply either one of it only?

 

2. 30days extension of stay (embassy's letter) can use how many time to extend? can request for the letter every 30days stamp expire?

 

3. Non-o multi visa expire in August. Will the immigration extend my stay continuouslyt till August to the date my visa ends?

 

4. If to the worst case, all ways of getting extension of stay is used. What other application can use to avoid leaving Thailand? 

 Can I apply for thai child visa INSIDE THAILAND? WHat's the requirement for it? WHat does i need for this application? 

 

Is there any recent non-o extender? can share his experience. Thanks!

1. I suggest you get the 60 day extension first.

Under number 3 of the memorandum for the special extensions it may be possible to get another 60 day extension.

2. As long as needed.

3. Your visa expiring has nothing to do with extensions of a permit to stay.

4. You could apply for a one year extension of stay based upon marriage. You would need 400k baht in a Thai bank for 2 months or proof of 40k baht income.

I am in a similar situation. I tried to do a border run recently without success so on the following day I went to my local immigration office to get a 60 day extension. I have to say that it was more difficult to get the 60 day extension than it was to get the 1 year visa in Savvanakhet. Also whilst I was at my local immigration office I was offered a non-standard extension of stay based on retirement for a period of 1 year. I will not go into details but something similar may be offered at your own immigration office. My friend decided to take this option whilst I just took the 60 day extension. I have been invited to take up the option of the 1 year extension (not-standard) and I may have to consider this seriously.

Ubonjoe...My Australian pension comes to about 33,000 Bt a month now.. with the$Au at 19 Bt..  with 200,000 in a Thai bank do you think I could get a marriage visa?  Or is it one of those things that depend on the policy of the individual immigration office?   Thanks..

A combination of money in the bank and income is not allowed for an extension based upon marriage 

A average income of 40k baht for a year is allowed (480k baht total for the year or more).

Mmm- You will need either  400K in the bank OR an income of 40K/month from overseas-  A combo of income+cash in the bank is not available to those seeking an extension of stay based on marriage.

I'm in the same boat....

 

Will apply for 60 day extension next week. ( u need to bring marriage cert , housebook and wife)

 

Have just put in 400k in the bank if so will apply for for 1 year extension if we're still in lockdown.

 

I went to an agent during the week enquiring if they had any "fast_track" options....None for marriage but if I had a Thai child she could sort something out based on that......this was in Pattaya

My non O multi runs out May 15th and I am worried I can not get to and from Savannahket. I dont have time to put the 400k and season it in the bank. Are they giving extensions for people whose visa is going to run out soon and cant renew their visa?

The extension i last got is already past the expiry date of the visa. Will they still extend it because of the special circumstances?

If it helps, these are the requirements at the Samui IO for a 60 day extension of a Non O single entry visa based on marriage. As said before these may of course differ from office to office.

Hi Joe, I already have a 60 day extension based on wife being a Thai national. Is it possible to have another 60 day extension? Where is this memorandum you mentioned? I also have 2 kids born here and never applied through/under them. Can I do that?

 

Also, I want to ask because I read here that to apply for a new spouse 'O" visa, the bank requirements of 400k is not needed to be in the bank for 2-3 months. Conflicting as some also say that's the amount of time needed. Which is correct?

Last week I obtained s 60 day extension running from the expiry of my current permission. When that gets close to expiry too I will ask my I O whether in the circumstances I can have another 60 days unless by then it is easy to leave and return. If neither possible then whatever emergency extension can be granted. Unfortunately applying for a year extension is not practical for me this tax year, as the funds would have to come from a taxable source and be taxed at my marginal rate, adding very considerably to the cost of such a route. Anyway I actually want to leave Thailand, if that's possible both here and at destination, for the summer.
