Extension of stays based on medical certificate?

Recommended Posts

According to the point 1.1 of the announcement attached below there is a way to extend your stay past 26th base on illness confirmed by medical certificate.

 

Anyone to shade some light on details of this mistery?

What sort of institution would be able to issue such certificate so it is legally accepted by IO?

What kind of illness?

 

From this simple declaration it would be to easy.

 

Example:

Let's say you are going through a procedure of dental implant installation. Tooth extraction, followed by wound healing, then followed by bone graft, implant and crown installation takes 6-8 month.

Such a procedure done properly should be carried as one go by a single team of dentists.

I was wondering if a pre-existing condition, such as diabetes, which makes it very dangerous to be exposed to COVID, would be sufficient to obtain a medical certificate and an extension of stay?

Did your diabetes condition prevent you from travelling to Thailand.

The answer to that, answers your question.

Traveled well before the COVID pandemic began. Today, I would not travel to Thailand. Insurance agents I contacted for COVID insurance both in my home country and here said I would be crazy to travel right now.

Do you know of any agents like this? I asked 2 in Chiang mai but they couldn't help.

An illness which doesn't allow you to travel.

The document doesn't state anyway it has to be illness that doesn't allow you to travel.

 

What's more still a month ago or so there were announcement coming up to open up Thailand for specific types of visitors and those seaking medical treatment were clearly on the list.

At least in the inital announcement (i don't know if this still applies or not) they said such a person needs a certificate from a doctor which states that the treatment is not possible in this person's home country. Might work if you come from Bangladesh, will not work if you come from Europe.

It is a long shot, frankly. If a doctor at a major hospital was willing to write, sign and stamp a letter to the effect that you are not fit to fly and why, your local immigration office might accept it. However, immigration tends to be very skeptical of applications for medical extensions.

Make sense. Thanks a lot for all responses!

 

Are there any alternatives of extensions you might think off?

 

I was hoping to apply for ED but been told by 2 schools it's impossible to get it as my last ED was cancelled 15 April and I'm currently staying on no visa at all.

(What btw doesn't make sense to me as from what I know many people do somhow get ED. How?)

Why do you think there's a certificate needed if you can travel back home? The certificate from a hospital will of course state that you are to sick to fly home and treatment is needed here. People seeking medical treatment from overseas are not the same category. They are so called "medical tourists" and are paying for sometime very expensive treatments back home or they might have to wait a long time for treatment back home. You're mixing apples and oranges.

I guess during the amnesty it's not same easy procedure for agents because of the automatic extensions.
