who has? immigration? but they are not the ones who decide   has the cabinet in the last few weeks "made it clear there will no no further amnesty extension"? I don't think they have?  

No.  They've already made it clear there will no no further amnesty extension.

Ive booked my flight already, immigration wont give me an extension even though i have 2 kids here, not married. I would be really fuxkin pixxed off if they extended the amnesty again after all t

I cant see how they cannot extend it further, its going to be total chaos if they don't, regardless of what the common consensus is, these guys in the cabinet are actually fairly smart people, unless somehow they just don't discuss the issue on Tuesday, if they do discuss the issue, they will come to the conclusion that the amnesty needs to be extended, and it will be extended.

Appreciate you sticking your neck out, but I'm not so sure. Why would they leave it so late?

However the amnesty has been extended for those with a medical reason or a letter from their Embassy.

That's not "the amnesty", but just a regular extension option which has always existed.

Immigration said this, but they are not the ones who granted the previous "amnesty" and its extensions. Obviously immigration is against an extension (they already stated this the last time), but if the ministers think an extension makes sense they could decide one without immigration agreeing to it.

I mean lawyers, officials, immigration officers and offices , visa agents, media, embassies or consulates?

It's decided by the Cabinet, so today nobody could tell how the ministers might decide next Tuesday.

If we had an insider (i'm not aware of any), we could know if they have it on the agenda, but we couldn't reliably predict the outcome.

 

Previously my personal opinion was "unlikely that it will be extended". Due to them not having it discussed last Tuesday (which would have been a reasonable date if they had any plans for an extension), my prediction is now at "very unlikely to see an extension"

it’s simple, we will find out Tuesday by 6pm ( they have meetings Tuesdays) 

Wednesday at the latest.

 

if no news Then that means no extension and you should be gone by the 26th or get a covid letter if possible to stay an extra 30 days.

 

 

the situation hasn’t really improved I agree but they’ve made it clear that this is more of a grace period than an amnesty. A lot of people were told to acquire the correct visa or prepare to leave by 26th.

 

i don’t think they will all of a sudden change their mind on the last week... but I hope I’m wrong and it will mean we get a freebie and it saves me 1900 baht - plus travelling to CW and back. 55

The medical extension is available normally, but a 30 day extension because there is a difficulty returning to your home country due to Covid-19 is not a regular extension option.

While "Covid" is a new "reason for necessity", an extension based on an embassy letter is still a "regular" extension, which has been available probably since many years.

I'd really be surprised if there is an extension.  The government was quite explicit in their statement that the 26th was the deadline.  How can they go back on it now? I suppose it's possible they might look the other way at the airport if you're flying out before the end of the month, but I'd bet the 26th will remain the deadline.  My advice would be to get yourself organized.  Quickly.
