The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Monday resolved to extend the emergency decree for another month from the end of this month to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

It is the sixth extension since the decree was announced for the first time in March this year.

22 Covid-19 cases in State Quarantine announced today... Perfect fuel for the government to maintain its grip. 

 

Further Visa Amnesty to follow? - If the government thinks it's still an emergency situation, its surely still an emergency situation for those without a visa.

Announce a 6 month Visa amnesty and help those who are struggling to find a way to stay here to stay here (and continue spending here).

Most of these tourists are not staying in hotels, they are long-term tourists living in cheap rental places and can't afford to meet the requirements for a proper visa.

My proper Non-O VISA cost $200, the requirements are for me to leave the country every 90 days, then return, which the government are unwilling to let me do. 

If you are married , pay 1900 baht and get 1 year.

Agreed. However, according to reports there are 150,000 ‘tourists’ on visa amnesty - they are eating somewhere...  we are at a point where every little helps the local stalls and restaurants. 

 

No one really care’s for the big hotel chains - its the small food stalls, tiny apartments and shopfront restaurants that are really hurting - its not much, but anything is better than nothing - Extending Amnesty hurts no-one and may help some local businesses in some small way. 

The strange thing is, that the number of 150'000 tourists seems not to change! Mean nobody left or obtain a visa/extension or anything?
I heard the same number now for some time already

I also think this number of 150000 is complete nonsense. According to an IO whole Phuket had about 1600 and all of them where at the immigration in the last two weeks to ask for an extension. Only about 50 didn´t appear. So, where are all the other 148400?
