I have a non O multi entry visa good till Nov 2020, I left Thailand end of Nov 2019 for medical reasons and then the China virus struck which meant no travel, I have since decided I will not be return

I have not dumped my family, you have little or no idea, they support my decision 100%. Would you pay for second class medical care (Chemo therapy for terminal cancer) when you can get excellent profe

100% agree with you. I'm stuck in the UK, my extension expires in January and I fear that I will not be able to get back with pathetic hoop jumping until way after that.  I own my own house in the UK,

Early Dec 2020.  4 relatively good years in LOS.  I can stay until Feb 2021(Non OA obtained in early 2020) but the “Tea Leaves” tell me as a Foreigner it might be best to go back and see if the world can back to some sense of normal.

I will wait until middle of September to see where is open.

 

Maybe we should start a thread at the beginning of September talking about all the options available.

I think currently it isn't very sure if countries are really open up again especially when countries are in the second wave of covid. It goes like click and you locked up again. Staying in a place even if Covid comes one day to Thailand like in other countries, seems better then traveling around, spend all my money and hoping to enter one day again. Which is very unsure. And I say to myself if I would leave Thailand I wouldn't come back. So yes it is an option. But the Agent route seems much cheaper.

It's completely up to you of course but I understand Bali is open for tourists as of today.

In case you think applying for another ED visa is something you want to do.

Only for domestic tourist is what it says. Even your link says that.

Thank you for your help but like ubonjoe said only for domestic tourists and quoted from the article: 

However, he said he was not sure that the plan to reopen the border for international tourists could be executed on Sep 11.

Thank you. I'm impressed that you can wait so long. For my nerves it would be better if I could solve it out now. That's isn't very healthy for me. I guess direct after I went to the agent they will come up with an official solution. 😄

 

"Staying in a place even if Covid comes one day to Thailand like in other countries, seems better then traveling around,"

I guess the 14 days quarantine will stay for a while, so I wouldn't worry so much about a second wave here. And imo, there hasn't been a first wave.

Yah, but if you go to Bali on 11 September and arrange the application with the Thai consulate and get a new ED visa, problem solved.

I already know Turkey, Ukraine, and probably Georgia will be open and pretty cheap to stay.

 

Maybe Bali, Nepal, and Sri Lanka too.

 

So I'm sure I'll get somewhere to ride this thing out for longer.

 

But in September there should be a more definitive list.

Must be exciting to lead such a thrilling life, is there no place you can go back 'home' to?

As far I have understood amnesty counts as overstay dates from the date it expires and no additional 90 days are given. Banks also call it overstay and require a paper from immi to do business meanwhile.

That's what I heard from visa agent as well.

However...

Will amnesty be counted as overstay in case you apply for a 7 days extension starting from 26th September.

You would then overstay the extension not amnesty...
