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.

Online reporting is working as normal

Quick question. Given that July 31st is 90+ days from now does that mean everyone in Thailand will need to report 1 August? Or is it 90 days after July 31st that we'd need to report? regardless this act synchronizes every foreigner in the country to the same reporting day. Or case three, my next reporting date is 20 July, does this give me an auto extension on July 20 to +90 days thus report on or about Oct 20?

It is unknown at this time when they will be due. When they decide the order is not going to be extended beyond July 31st they will make an announcement for the will be due. They certainly will not want everybody doing them on August 1st.

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.

 

 

What do mean "Aussies are stuck here until the end of this year?" Aussies can fly back to Australia now if they want, quarantine conditions apply.

I disagree, but if you're right they will just have to extend the amnesty again.  I think borders with Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia will be slowly opening from 1 May, and this should enable the border runners to do their runs.  Flights to US and UK have never been completely suspended, so there's no reason why they won't increase in frequency in May/June.  If Australia continues to be hardcore and not admitting their own citizens, I guess Aussies stranded here will have to get a letter from their Embassy which will enable Immigration to extend their stay past 31 July.

Australia are admitting their own citizens. 14 day quarantine applies of course.

Good luck mate.  Well done to EVA for keeping the service going, unlike BA and Thai.

I think that you better try and keep up with the Thai news because you would see that Thailand has now placed Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia in the High-Risk group of countries so those borders will not open soon.

Someone that had to do a 90 day report on March 26, was granted a suspension until July 31.

Someone that has to do a 90 day report on May 16, is granted a suspension until July 31.

So whenever the supension is ended, Immigration will give a reporting deadline based on what?

 

The March 26  suspended reporting has the same deadline as the May 16 reporting?

Just eliminate the interim reporting and just do your new Extension

At that time you have to show proof of residency.

Don't worry, as someone with family in Laos I keep very up to date.  The consensus among the Lao expat community is that the announcement you refer to was made by the already discredited Minister of Health and was meaningless as any decision about the ASEAN borders will be taken with the agreement of all ASEAN members.  The fact that Laos has had a total of 19 cases and no deaths, tends to support that interpretation.  I predict the borders will open next month for Lao/Thai citizens, but possibly not yet for everyone.

The suspension of 90 day reports did not start until the 7th of April.

The will announce when 90 day reports are due when it is decided the order will not be extended beyond July 31st. The may do it by the month the report was due or from when your most recent report was due. They will certainly not want them immediately after July 31st,

That's right, it is the same with all the flights. There are no scheduled international flights anywhere. The only flights that are operating are the repatriation flights that are carrying passengers both ways. There is a flight going to Australia on 29 April to do a repatriation flight out of Australia so arrangements have been made for that aircraft to pick up Australians on its way to Australia. That is how the airlines are working, they are only doing repatriation flights and not scheduled services

You are not the only person with family and friends in Laos and as for the "consensus" among the Lao expats, they know no more than anyone else as to what is going to happen. Everything seems to have to evolve around your predictions, your guesses, your thinking which is only guess work and false predictions by you. Instead of guessing, thinking, predicting how about just sticking to facts that be proven and stop the spreading of false information
