Multi-entry marriage visa 60 day extension requirements?


Recommended Posts

So with the borders closed and the amnesty looking like it's going to end on September 26th, my Visa is still valid until December 6th, being a multi-entry based on marriage, but my permission to stay expired in June, so theoretically I guess I'm still on the amnesty with the borders closed.

 

My question is, what are the requirements, what paperwork and documents do I need to bring with me when I head to the Chiang Mai immigration office.

 

My second question is do I need to go to the Chiang Mai immigration office by the airport or is it the office located at the Promada Mall?

 

Thank you everyone for the input and help.

Some offices have already done a 2nd extension already have people that they may be able to get another one.

Immigration can easily waive the one per entry limit written in the immigration order for extensions by using this in the order.

"5. In the case where an alien applicant does not meet the full qualifications stipulated by the criteria herein or in other cases not specified in this Order but a competent officer equivalent to or higher than inspector is of the opinion that the alien has legitimate reason for staying in the Kingdom of Thailand, the application shall be forwarded to the Commander of the Royal Thai Police or an authorized competent officer for further consideration of the alien's application."

That is very interesting to know. Do you have the complete link, in Thai, that I might be able to direct the IO to if necessary? Going for the first 60-day on Wednesday, but useful info to have 'in the bank'.

Numbers 15 and 16 has downloads of the immigration order in this pinned topic. https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/981135-laws-regulations-police-orders-etc/

The other thing is make sure you have your latest TM30 receipt in your passport which your wife should do every time you do a border hop. I did my 60 day extension 2 weeks ago and I had the receipt with the passport but it fell out on the IO desk and she nodded her head as she stapled it into my passport.

Since 30 June 2020 it is not necessary any more to file a new TM-30 when returning from a domestic or international trip when you stay on the same Visa/extension.  Since that date you only need to do it ONCE at your 'official residence' for Immigration purposes.

Obviously the Hotels, guesthouses, or other premises where you are staying during a domestic trip are still required to file a TM-30 of you arriving at their premises within 24 hours of your arrival.  But you do not need to 'update' your TM-30 when returning at your 'home', when still on the same Visa/extension.

Sorry Peter but you are wrong. even before the IO saw the receipts that had fallen onto her desk she sent the wife to fill out the TM30 and that was 2 weeks ago. Your wife must supply a new TM30 every time you enter the country

Attached the TM-30 reporting regulation dd 30-06-2020, and copy-pasted an excerpt from that new regulation.

You were not at the immigration office with us 2 weeks ago so you do not know what transpired. So you can go and tell the IO that they are doing everything wrong according to you. My wife and I were there and I am stating what happened to us 2 weeks ago.

Which IMM office do you deal with. As usual some have their own rules and some are not up to date with changes.

Currently if your returning to your previous address TM30 not required for both returning from another province or from another country.
