Under review 30 days, late return.. Overstay..

Recommended Posts

Not sure how to tackle this.. I will go Monday for my non imm O marriage extension.. See no reason why it wont be granted +30 days under review.. 

I will not be able to make that date to return, its simply unavoidable that I will be 2 - 5 days late. This will put me into technical overstay however at this point in time, there is an amnesty until July 30th. 

Any suggestions on best way to tackle that other than simply wing it and apologise (claim self isolation issues) ?? I doubt asking for 40 days under review is likely to help my visa application processing !! 

 

I also assume this is going to be wildly officer dependant, but any feedback on how thats been treated in the past. In my extension application history one year it went to a second +30 under review, one year they appeared to totally lose my extension application (by wow was that second application 'easy' all those details they insist have to be so precise were suddenly a non issue, and the central approval came in a few days) but of course those were immigration's side, this one is going to be my side. 

I try to follow the rules as they demand, but I dont see a clean solution to this.

You would probably lose your extension and have to start again.

Maybe worth having a word with them.

no amnesty for yearly extensions, when does you present extension expire

I am on a 90 day that finishes 17th June. I could ride it out to July 31 and see what comes / visa run / whatevers possible. 

I will be leaving again in august and would prefer a 12 month extension but truly dont care much.. multi entry non imms are much easier for my lifestyle as I rarely spend 90 days at a stretch and given out still in europe.

I doubt that personally.. I do expect a ticking off and maybe in normal times an overstay penalty.. Tho I wouldnt be on overstay in July as they are automatic. 

 

Its easy to say I had to self isolate for 14 days.. What am I supposed to do when government instructions are not to leave the house, due to recent travel. 

These are not normal times. Rules conflict with each other, which is why the amnesty is in place.

From what i have heard at Phuket, there is a delay at present of the 'under consideration period'. Whereas your stamp whilst being considered may give you a month, it may be 2 months before you will need to return to get your final stamp

Yeah its happened before, only 50/50 on if a second +30 would be used or I would be back out the country and reset the whole thing. 

This is basically why I dont bother with extensions, my travel is usually too high to get to the late part of a 90 day entry and wait another 30 days.

Are saying that you will be late applying for your extension. Your title and etc made me think you would be late going back on the after the underconsideration period.

No overstay fine will be charged since they are being waived under the amnesty. You technicly will be under the amnesty after your extension expires.

Just go in apply for your as soon as possible.

No I will be applying just fine (Mon 8th planned had to wait for money seasoning).. My entry expires June 17th so +30 to July 17th. I will be down south and hence late on the under consideration return date. I would prefer not to be, but I will be elsewhere in the country and simply cant (wont) change it. So depending on my travel back I will be (depending on how they do +30, likely 17th July) 3 days to Mon the 20th July before I can get there (remembering its closed sat / sun) so practically the business day after. 

I would happily go to another immigration office and buy a 7 day extension but none of that is reality with under consideration.

There is good chance your application will not of been approved by the report back date.

The under consideration stamp to allows you to stay in the country until your application is approved. The report back date is just that.

Being a couple of days late is not a problem at most offices. You should call them to check to see if it has been completed.

If your wife had your passport she could go to immigration and get your stamp done.

Thats encouraging to hear..

My wife will be with me..  I could however pay a lawyer / agent to go collect it ?? That is if its important enough to not be a couple of days late in collection.

Paying somebody to do it would be a waste of money.

Just wait to see what the report back date is you get. Then ask them about the possiblity of being a couple of days late.

Following on from my previous post, i know of 2 people that have waited over 6 weeks to get their second stamp recently at Phuket. One of those cases was nearer 8 weeks. He was told there is a backlog, and probably slower postal services too back from Hat Yai or Songkhla where Phuket applications go to to be approved.

 

Livin Los, i am doing my marriage extension late next week also, if you could let me know how you go in general at Phuket i would appreciate it.

 

PST.
