When do you guys plan to apply for visa?

Recommended Posts

News stated that grace period is until Sept 26, 2020.

 

I'm just curious when you all plan to visit immigration office and apply for visa?

 

Personally i'm leaning toward 10-15 Sept, you know.. to avoid the chaos and flock of visa applicants on the last 7 days before Sept 26.

Interesting topic... 

Don't you think many others might had the same plan/idea like you? 

Then all meet on 10-15/Sept at WC. 😄

Should all show up at the same Immigration office, coughing and claiming to have a fever, forcing Immigration to make another extension.

I would get in and get your yearly extension taken care of. Got mine and the 90 day report done today in Prathum Thani. Easy, less than 45 minutes for both.  The extension of stay is back dated to the original expiry date. In my case May 4th.  Why wait as something could always screw up? You do get the full 90 days. Mine will be Oct 17 by doing it today.

Are you saying that anyone who will apply for visa during grace period, their visa will start on the day of last expiration (before or during visa amnesty) and NOT the day it is applied?

If I apply for a 60 day extension on 26 Aug ....... that would give me 4 days ........ 555.

Nah, that's BS, Marin's immigration cheated him and he accepted it.

I think the answer is to delay as long as possible, so immigration would look stupid if they tried to scam you.

That is what i am afraid of. I purposely "waste" a week of free visa amnesty to avoid the flock, but eventually lesser queues on the last day of grace period. What an irony..

I will probably have to apply double extension at once then. I really hope that ain't the case.

If current visa amnesty considered FREE, I agreed.

But coming "Grace Period" (if confirmed) still FREE, doubt so. 😀

Immg should know during current amnesty, how was their income reduced compare to normal days.       

Do you think also free for coming grace period?

If they even allow us to provide excuse/proof for proper 30/60 days visa.

High chance would be paid for your stay or enjoy until 26/Sept and leave.

Just do it if you need to, don't wait.

 

I'm wondering if need to involve Covid-19 insurance.

For foreigners who allowed to come back now, Covid-19 insurance is a must.

For those foreigners who may or may not be able to go back to their countries and waiting/stranded here, do they need to have it for continue staying here? 😁

For what reason is your 90-day extension of stay? For education?
