PHUKET:-- The Chief of the Phuket Immigration Office in Phuket Town is inviting foreigners who are concerned about their visa status ahead of the July 31 amnesty expiring to visit his office and have their extensions to stay renewed, or even have their 90 day reports filed.

 

Phuket Immigration Chief Col Narong Chanaphaiku today (July 7) urged foreigners to not worry about their visa and permit to stay status just yet, as the automatic visa extension granted by the Immigration Bureau will remain in effect until at least July 31.

 

Under the extension, foreigners whose visas had expired on or after March 26 are permitted to stay in the country until July 31 without having to apply for an extension, without paying any fees or submitting any documents.

If there truly is as many people who are going to be “turning up at immigration on 31st” then surely not everybody will get seen to, everybody wants to maximise their amnesty days remaining and won’t go on let’s say 29th 30th to be sure. As they will surely be turned away saying “no need to come here until after July 31”

 

not everybody is going to get their visa sorted and we will all be on overstay. 
we’ve all seen how slow they work in the immigration office. Especially when it’s nearly lunch time.

well, he is clearly 100% thai; 50 % of the people that need immig services wont know that, after the first visit turnaway,then they try to book the reservation ; How to do that , then there will be a long queue, then they cant get in until after july 31, then they are on overstay and subject to fines and deportation;

nice system; well thought out

Then they need to leave

Surely they will extend the visa amnesty, right? It would make sense to do that... but this is Thailand so who knows? If there are thousands of expats officially on overstay after the 31st then that would end up creating lots of easy revenue in fines etc

If all is fair then amnesty should prevail . Please note immigration Thailand that NZ has extended foreign   Workers, many of them Thais work visas for up to 12 months as they are trapped by c19 and would face extreme financial hardship to get home.
