What if i already have had a 60 day extension and my non o multi visa based on marriage expires on july 24th, I cant get finances into my bank for a 12 month extension, so if the borders stay closed can i get another 60 day extension.

i will phone my local immigration office but its nice to hear forum members input.

As only one 60 day extension per entry is allowed it would seem a 30 day extension is all you might get if the amnesty is not extended.

I'm willing/hoping to be proved wrong.

You probably can.. but go to immigration immediately.  Today I changed from tourist to non imm O on marriage.. was told all on amnesty have until July 31st to make changes... after that you would be on overstay and would have to leave the country.  The office in Kalasin was busy today.. a few ferangs but saw them processing what I think must have been stacks of Lao visas..

I’m in a similar situation as some posters on here.
Please find below my history :

-Entered LOS December 18th with Non O single 90 days
-60 days extension upon mariage until May 15Th
-Like many, amnesty granted till July 31st
Booked THAI flight on August 1st. It would have been perfect, unfortunately THAIAIRWAYS cancelled all its flights till September...

Just sent my wife to Jomtien Immigration :

Regardless THAIAIRWAYS issue, IO said I am entitled to a new 60 days extension...

OP, you have correct answer above. 

Given uncertain times ahead if you apply for 60 day extension to visit Thai wife,  then you could consider applying for 12 month extension based on marriage under that extension.

Meaning you can relax in nervous times. No need exit Thailand. 

Or, you could wait for a few days for when an announcement is made about what happens after the 31st. Unless the borders with neighbouring countries are opened with no restrictions then I can't see any alternative to extending the amnesty. After all, nothing will have changed from the present situation.

Are you saying that Kalasin immigration told you that every foreigner who has made use of the amnesty - somewhere on this site suggested that 200,000 are in such a situation - would have to get out of Thailand after the 31st, or buy an extension? So, therefore, the amnesty will not be extended. And did they say where these 200,000 might go, with borders closed? And how long they would be given to leave before being arrested?

That sounds like very good news. As I said before happy to be proved wrong.

I have a multi entry non-o visa, normally I just cross every 3 months... but since March been on the amnesty. If they do not extend the amnesty, will I be able to cross and come back in? Or will there be some quarantine stuff or complications doing a boarder run? (My multi non-o is valid till November this year).

 

I would do an extension but do not have anything close to 400,000 baht anymore.   🙂   So I am concerned.... don't want to have to leave in 2 weeks and not be able to get back in. Any info on this? Thanks guys

 

BTW non-o based on Married to Thai for 15 years and have an 11 year old son.... been in Thailand for the last 18 years

You can apply for a 60 day extension to visit your wife if the amnesty ends.

Hi,

my multi non-o expired 5 may. I went to nonthaburi IO this morning and the answer for expansion was NO. 60 days wife visit... NO.. he told me i need to leave the country on 31 july. And added he really believes there wont be any more amnesty. 

 

CW is ok with expired visas. I went there the same day afternoon.

Though being skeptical I just want to believe it, but until I have the stamp in my passport, I will not be serene.

The problem is if there's no extension to the amnesty there's a huge backlog of people who'll have to leave straight away. Hopefully someone will realise and act accordingly but if they don't then you're in a bit of a fix.
