Immigration confirm Muang Thong Thani office to reopen amid speculation visa amnesty will not be extended

Thailand's Region 1 immigration have confirmed that the temporary visa office in the Muang Thong Housing estate in Nonthaburi will reopen next Monday, July 13th.

 

The office will handle 90 day reports, address reports and short extensions of stay. 

 

Naew Na said it was reopening under the orders of immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang as he cares about foreigners in Thailand. 

 

It will help to ease pressure on the main immigration center at the Government Complex a few kilometers away on the other side of Chaeng Wattana Road in northern Bangkok. 

 

The media said that with the amnesty on visas expected to come to an end at the end of July it was felt that the Government Complex could become overcrowded.

 

In order to not compromise arrangements like social distancing the temporary office will resume operations much as it did earlier in the year at the height of the pandemic.

 

The news comes as foreigners in Thailand are eagerly awaiting news regarding the current visa amnesty which at the time of publishing is due to end on 31 July.

 

Some have speculated that the re-opening of the temporary immigration office may be an indication that the visa amnesty will not be extended beyond its current expiry date.

 

However, no official announcement regarding the visa amnesty post 31 July has yet been made.

So now that this has been done, where do I go if I already had an appointment scheduled for next Tuesday, July 14, to process my 90-day report?  The appointment still shows Counter B-65 at Government complex.    (I always do it online, but with the app and website down for the past 2 weeks I was unable to process it that way.)  

 

Admin- Feel free to move this if I need to post it elsewhere.
