in and out in under 2 minutes.

Hardly life threatening.

 

Mine was faster under one minute I was the only one there

So Immigration, in these cases, didn't sent you back, telling to come back after 31 July.

Therefore, as I always do my 90 days on line, i will do it  again as expected 1/2 June and will see what is happening.

I think it's sensible.  It allows for 3 months for the borders to re-open and flights to resume.  They obviously expect most people to have left Thailand by 31 July.  Better than having to review it month by month.

31st July is way too short. They should've given the amnesty until at least 31st December 2020.

 

Doubt borders will open in 3 months. Australia said December at the earliest, if not in 2021. Aussies are stuck here in Thailanduntil the end of this year, at least.

The way I read it is, no need to do 90 day report until 31st July, they will update automatically

They are only suspended. The are not doing them for you.

You will have to do a report sometime after July 31st that will be announced.

Plus a string of bickering and baiting posts.

From now no further notices will be made when posts are removed.

Will people stuck here on METV have to do 90 day report after 31st July or are they exempt?

No

Only those that are on longstay extension of stay or visas (OA and etc) that normally do them.

Is an ED visa a long-stay visa? I know when I was on an ED visa a very long time ago it had to be done every 90 days.

It does if they only have an entry from one. Those on extensions of stay should apply for their new extensions when due.

And people on extensions should continue 90 day reporting too?

Australia is different than borders with neighboring countries. What Australia says or does is completly different.

Just predictions by all and sundry. There is nothing official.

Nothing different from the ministerial order that was issued on April 7th that has been extended to the 30th of July.

If on a long stay extension of stay (one year or 90 days) they should apply for their new extension when it is due.

But it says it applies for ALL TYPES OF VISAS. I think you are wrong. 

My retirement visa expires on June 15 but as i read it, now exoires 31 July. 

Or am i WRONG ?

So, the wording of the Infographic says, "No need to do 90 day reporting", then goes on to say, "Immigration will process the above mentioned steps automatically".

 

I am on a Retirement Extension and I'm reading this to mean that when my current 90 day expires 23rd May that it will automatically be renewed for another 90 days (above) to 20th August and that I will have no need to visit Immigration again until around that time? Does this make sense or am I missing something? 

I'm in the exacty the same boat and assuming I won't be up sh-t creek without a paddle by following your logic. Trouble is logic is a pretty rare commodity with Immigration, so best to make a check with your local office between now and the run-out date in your passport.

Why would they fine you for something you clearly did not need to do. It is now written in 2 ministerial notices now.

Going to a post office to mail them is just as risky (if not more) as going to immigration to do it.

Mine was due last Saturday and it has not been done. By July 31st I will of skipped 2 of them that would of been done.

And as long as we all follow the same procedure, immigration will have no excuse to attempt to fine/bribe any of us. This really is a case of 'united we are strong'.

 

No 90 day reports until they tell us otherwise. And when you do next visit immigration, make sure you have a copy of the order in your folder.
