Extending Thailand Elite Visa COVID-19

Recommended Posts

If you are a foreigner living in Thailand on a Thailand Elite visa will you be able to extended your visa as usual due to the Covid-19 situation?

 

I sent a email to Thailand Elite about this waiting for a response. Has anyone had to extend their Elite visa yet? 

 

Thanks

Yes, they are processing normal extensions for longer term visas as usual based on what I've read.

You can still apply for the 1 year extension at a immigration office.

I have booked through Thai Elite my 1 year Thai Elite PE Visa Extension at Udonthani for the 18th June and I will have all the required items.

 

Udonthani Immigration only requires a TM30 if one permanently changes address however just to be on the safe side I will have a screenshot copy of the TM30 from the online TM30 application.

 

Good luck with your extension.

The appointment and letter may only apply in Bangkok or one of the locations where Thai Elite have staff or agents.

At other offices you can just walk in and do the application.

Hi, am I understanding this correctly? If you have a 5 year Elite visa for example you can get a 1 year extension of stay based on that?

I have a 5 year Elite visa. Every year I have to get a 1 year extension stamp but due to the covid-19 situation I was concerned about things being more difficult but looks like everything is normal for a Elite visa if you are already in Thailand.

Yes you can. It is a standard procedure if you do not travel out of the country for a year.

A member stayed for almost 5 years on his without leaving the country. He applied for a extension every year.

Ah I see, I'm halfway through a 5 year visa but have never stayed longer than 6 weeks at one time. So just for clarity, when the time is up on the Elite visa it's time to get a new one or find a different way to stay in the country?

You can do one last entry just before your PE visa expires and get a new one year entry or you can apply for a new visa.

The member I mentioned left and re-entered the country and go a new one year entry and later applied for a new visa.

Only if you do not leave and re-enter the country for a year. 

Most people travel during the year and get a new one year entry every time they enter the country.
