I'm heading to immigration on the 29th as I have an embassy letter and will get the 30 day extension.  Am I right in thinking I will pay two days overstay and will likely not receive any other penalties? And then have until October 28th to leave the country?

Just circumstances that prevent me from going earlier. Plus the flight I am looking at booking is considerably cheaper on October 28th, so if I have to overstay anyway, would benefit me more to make that overstay/pay that fine now.

 

Want to make sure it will all be okay.

That's not a good idea at all you should extend your visa while still on the amnesty.

 

You can always pay an overstay fine at the END of your trip when departing or get another extension.

I'm asking if anyone has any, you know, actual experience of what will likely happen.

Wait for the morning Thai time then you'll get some actual useful responses. 

 

Personally I would extend prior to the deadline and if you have to overstay do it 30 days later when you are about to go to the airport

I would not book flights that far ahead in these uncertain times, they are more prone to cancellation. Had a few cancellations back in March. Refund is a real hassle and took a long time. FlyingThai is right. Makes more sense to risk overstaying after your 30 day extension. I'm not sure if you are even eligible to apply for an extension if you overstay.

I got my consideration stamp today til the 20th of October. Will need to come back on 20th to change it to 26th. The process was not as bad as I thought. Officers were nice and helpful there.

 

Book your appointment asap here: http://203.151.166.132/immigrant_queue/booking/

 

Choose: apply for short term visa - counter K

 

bring all necessary documents and 1900 baht beforehand and you'll be good to go.

What if they decide to arrest you instead? 

For what and where?

It will not happen at immigration and the airport.
