7 days to leave if visa not extended?


Recommended Posts

Just trying to make plan C & D here. What if they refuse to extend my visa exempt for 30 days (I'm still waiting for embassy letter), will they give you 7 days grace from Sep 26 to get your affairs in order and leave? Will they put the 7 day grace stamp on your passport? Will they still take your 1900B if they don't give you the 30 day extension?

 

There are reports that Phuket Immigration will be open on Saturday the 26th. Does anyone know if MTT will be open too?

Perfectly reasonable. They have given people months to sort themselves out and some have not bothered.

True!  And yet.....  Giving people 7 days actual notice to leave when there is a pandemic raging around the world is not only cruel, it's unreasonable and probably not possible.   Let's take

Sure I know the game, and yes I am fully able to navigate the system.  And so I share some of the knowledge I have with those on the Forum that have queries or looking for advice. And contrary to

If your visa application is officially denied (you get a stamp in your passport) you will be given 7 days to leave the country. I don't know if this would start then from 27th or the day when you apply, this could also depend on the immigration office. They would keep the 1900THB.

The default expectation, set in part by 6 months of automatic extensions, is that an application for extension will normally be granted.  Therefore, unless someone has been arrested or done something wrong, there's absolutely no reason that someone should expect to be kicked out of Thailand.

 

Immigration has effectively told people to come and apply for extensions.  If you have all the documents there shouldn't be a problem.  If someone goes in under these circumstances, it is unreasonable to expect that person to also prepare to leave within 7 days.

 

That would be a bit like a student who has prepared for final exams, takes the exam, and expects to pass and graduate.  But instead, they failed and are kicked out of school.  That's not reasonable.  Reasonable is letting the student remain in school to retake the class and try to pass another exam.

 

(In the case of Thailand, reasonable would be letting the person stay for 30 days to make arrangements.)

These flights you are sighting were canceled months ago.  For example, I know there haven't been flights maldives for months and they were all cancelled months ago.  Im pretty sure the same is true for many other destinations you list--bhutan, bangladesh....  There were not 3 flights to the philippines scheduled today.  philippines airline has been flying reliably, but they only have 2-3 flights a month scheduled.  For the japan and hongkong flights--I would bet they were cancelled months ago.

 too.

 

I pulled these flights from here: https://www.bangkokairportonline.com/flight-status-departures/

 

They show all scheduled flight for the day and whether or not the flight departed on time or was canceled.  I would think that if things were normal (no Covid) then there would be hundreds of flights on that page.

 

But perhaps the page is wrong.  Can you point me to a better site to track this sort of thing?

 

Thanks!

Have to admit I did expect to be able to pay for a one-time 30 day extension before having to leave. The embassy letter made it tricky if you are not automatically given one like US citizens are. The reality is that travel is still very restrictive, it's not so easy to just leave Thailand like it used to be.

It would appear that USA take care of their citizens and other countries don't give a flying F.

Off topic all...

 

Important question indeed : immigration will agree to stamp 7 days, OR NOT ?

Any report ?

 

Edit : in my case they refuse to let me apply for normal extension (without letter).

What for anybody who can not apply anything ?

But possible anyway ...day by day KLM fly Amsterdam and from there connections flights  availble to  World destinations

In other terms : will they give 7 days to sort out the mess of plane w/without test in 72h, make reservation, etc. etc., or not ?

In normal times you would apply for extension knowing full well that it would be denied and be given 7 days to get out of dodge. No overstay. 

However now with appointment system (at MTT) you would not even get to make application without embassy letter. Meaning you cannot obtain rejection with 7 day to leave. Other IMM offices perhaps possible.
