So she basically said come back on the 30/31st and do the extension

So that tells you something

OP, what's your take on it. 

Was the io trying to save your 60 day extension thinking amnesty will be extended and you can keep the 60 for later?

So back again on the 30/31 

Definitely the 30th 😎

They know there's another amnesty in the pipeline.

The only bets are on if it's 30 or 60 days.

I'd say 60 days.

Interesting that she said this this morning 

But extremely happy with our docs. 

I went to initially kick start a marriage extension 

Firstly 60 days 

Then apply for 1 year marriage extension 

I think you have a months pending after that 

Followed by a years extension all going well. 

Gust going through the 

60 days 

1 month pending

! year extension procedure.

Just interesting that she said that

She pointed it out on the calendar to me and my wife.

I assume you already have a valid Non Imm O Visa then?

My multi 0 finished on the 8th of May was supposed to go to Laos then for a new one of which the Imm officer say and I pointed out my last May stamp to her. So I am on Amnesty now.

 

And thank you Tanoshi for pointing out in another thread that multi o visa holders are not freeloaders. 😎 ( I recall )

 

My wife and I have been building a new  2 story house for the past year will be finished in late September moving in before winter. 

 

I just liked a  one week holiday in Laos and Laos sandwiches. 

 

Cheers, 

Kirby

Thanks.

I assume then that CM are letting you apply for a 1 year extension based on marriage from your original Non O entry, even though your permission of stay has been extended via the amnesty.

The 60 day extension is to season funds in a Thai bank then?

Hopefully this means an extension is coming.  This is what they were doing a few days before the initial amnesty was announced.  They were telling people no need to do an extension.  Thailand is probably going to go under lockdown again with the Egyptian soldier and Sudanese girl and probably other cases too.  Amnesty is likely to be extended, especially after hearing what the immigration officer said.  The longer the better.

I'd say 60 days.

90 days always seems a good figure with immigration 😉

I did the exact same thing last week. The lady at reception was very helpful, she gave me a form of things that I needed and told me to come back to process it. 

 

I was planning on going down there tomorrow - not sure if I should bother now.

Might be for that - or might be to have a "real extension" which allows the 1-year to be processed at all?

Yes.  Funny to think anyone believes supporting a Thai family is "freeloading" - especially coming from those who can get "hassle-free" retriement extensions for 15k per-yr or less, w/o any docs/financials or family-committments.

 

A Non-O marriage in-country requires a dictionary-think document stack, not counting any "unpublished requirements" added on, which can make it impossible.  Good to hear CM is acting friendly, in your case.

Friendly for 60 day extensions perhaps only, after waiting very very long. I mean, everyone gonna go there 30/31st? Or leave? No way!

Each day the news is not out just confirms amnesty has to be extended.

I am hearing some very interesting information from visa agents who I know in Chiang Mai.

 

Apparently, for a "bonus fee" of several thousand baht you can switch your visa to a marriage visa immediately if you go through an agent and pay the "bonus fee".

 

This leads me to believe that the reason you may have been turned away and told to come back on the 30th or 31st is because by that time you will have no other choice but to pay extra.

 

I might be wrong and maybe they will shortly be announcing an extension but this conflicts with all current reports.

 

I wonder is it possible to apply for the marriage visa extension that you are looking for at another immigration office?

 

Maybe someone can shed some light here.

I plan on going for the 60 day extension next week here in Rayong. Can you refresh me with what paperwork I need. Thanks in advance.
