I am planning on starting to ask if there will be another extension towards the end of August. Around the 10th of September I plan on complaining that the Thai Immigration has not yet announced anythi

First I'll wait for the official announcement. Then I'll reevaluate my stay in Thailand and check what options I will have.  

I am not trying to 'justify my interpretation', but simply providing options based on reports from other IOs, e.g. SiSaKet IO, that confirmed that an application for the 60-day extension of stay will

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

 

In your case, is it a visa, ie a non-O visa, you plan to apply for at your immigration office or is it an extension of stay?

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

my understanding is, he applied for and got a yearly extension backdated as he had used the amnesty, he also did a 90 day address report, with a new report date of 17th November, nothing to do with a 90 day extension

 

arfandy you can only get a 60 day family extension once per entry, do not confuse a yearly extension with any other extension, during the amnesty.

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

Good idea, all to an army facility for quarantine

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.

I think it would be you who would look stupid as there is no scam, they have been very helpful.

Appearantly i can get a 90-day permit to visit spouse. I was adviced by Ubonjoe and i confirmed it back on April 2020 before lockdown happened. 

 

I came here with 60 days Tourist Visa,then early April i went to Chaeng Wattana to extend it. Officer gave me two choices back then, to proceed with usual 30-day visa extension then after finish i can apply for 90-day permit to visit spouse OR ignore 30-day extension and proceed directly to 90-day spouse visitation permit. 

 

I chose normal 30-day extension and one week after, first batch of visa amnesty was announced.

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.

back dating a yearly extension is understandable
as there was no need for you to use the amnesty apart from fear

i cannot see them doing this for 60 day extensions,
as the date may have already passed,
and those applying for 60 days, will likely have 1 year extension as next step if no resolve

there is no 90 day extension to visit family, only a 60 day extension,  once only per entry, can be used after a 30 day extension, if on a Visa exempt or tourist visa entry.

could be a conversion to a non imm 'O' visa, but financials would be required, i think would require a 60 day extension to visit Thai family first as he is on amnesty at the moment, this is the problem with not using the correct terminology, it confuses the thread

lets see how it plays out before we say this. My visa is tied to my WP which was extended in May so that could be the reason.. I have not paid for an extension in 30 years, my employer handles all that I just go along for the ride.  I simply reported back as to what happened in my case. I have also started the process for PR as it seems the way to go for me.

providing the rumored news matches the official decision,
and there is no reason i cannot
i will likely apply for my 60 day extension Mid September

i doubt there will be any chaos at immigration

I agree @innosiem If they are overcrowded......if your lucky you'll get a ticket; if you're unlucky you'll just be told to come back tomorrow.....and the next and the next.

Anyone who tries to create chaos through suggestions outlined in this thread will be drawing the short straw for sure; drawing retribution as mentioned in # 7 # 8 # 20.....or similar. 🤣

Still, it'll be a great experience for you all.....TIT

I believe i wrote "permit to visit spouse". I know there is no such thing as 90-day visa extension.
