What type did you get and how long does it allow you to stay in Thailand? I mean even if it's a 12-15 months visa, can you stay a full year or have to extend via the agent every 90 days (for an additional fee).

I have an ed visa.  it's good for 90 days, and then I can extend for another 90 days, and then I will probably have to leave in late march, one year from the date I entered thailand.

They had the same graphic/information posted in July. Short after everything was extended by the cabinet. Yawn!

Interesting that the actual announcement says nothing about amnesty ending or the need to prepare to leave or anything remotely like that.

I understand there's a few on these forums hoping people will have to leave,but your going to be very disappointed because an extension of some sort is going to happen 😊😊😎😎

The 60 day extension of stay based on family is done the same day? 

It is issued on the same day you apply for it.

Do you think perhaps any extension will be provided for non b multi holders in my situation?

At the most it would be the 30 day extension with a letter from you embassy unless they allow a longer one of some kind.

With a non-b visa about the only extension is for one year based upon working, teaching and etc unless married to a Thai or old enough to apply for a extension based upon retirement.

No problem to be a long term guest, I love this country

 

 

You are confusing the word "guest" with "Alien".

 

Immigration are quite specific in their wording - and it more accurately reflects the security of tenure that we enjoy.

I’m on Non B multi, before they were saying no problem just come before 26th.

now I get a message saying have to come before Monday 

 

eh?

I know of one agent that would transfer you from non-b to yearly volunteer visa for 37,000 THB.

They claimed the process should take 1-2 weeks since you already have non-immigrant.

Unfortunately I let my non-b lapse and reentered Thailand in the beginning of the year on an arrival visa so my process was quite a bit more expensive than that. (60,000 THB for 15 month)

To clarify, did you arrive on Visa on Arrival (15 days) or Visa exemption (30 days)? Thanks.

Not being pedantic but it might help people in a similar situation to note that when they entered on 14th March they entered Visa Exempt not on a Tourist Visa (though people often call it this). 

 

Edit: Sorry, I was reading the picture but just spotted that you've already pointed out they entered Visa Exempt...

Thais I speak with seem to not understand how anyone can still be having a problem given they have had so much time

The Thais I speak with are a lot happier to see the farangs sticking around, helping buy groceries for their families, make vehicle payments, pay electric bills, and patronize their otherwise floundering businesses. It's certainly a lot more than their own government's been doing for them.
