It states in a immigration announcement that your stamp can be changed to November 30th for free.

The announcement is dated October 1st so you you think they would've gotten it by now.

It is pages 3 and 4 here in Thai. https://www.immigration.go.th/en/?avada_portfolio=การอนุญาตให้คนต่างด้าว-3&portfolioCats=45%2C45

 

Edit: You will not be on a overstay until after October 31st since that is the day the current amnesty ends.

Thanks for the reply, Joe. I did go prearmed with the announcement, but was just told come back Friday, as were others. And as I was walking out, he said, there will be overstay charges too. Which given I'd only been stamped until October 12th makes me think this was premeditated plan to get some cash . Done openly in office in front of manager, and others told the same. So should i challenge this on friday or just suck it up? I'm thinking the latter

What you presumably have now is an "under consideration" stamp till October 12th (nothing unusual about that, as you applied in September), but they haven't received the approval yet and told you to return on Friday (again, nothing unusual, it happens).

 

Just wait and see what will happen then. I have no idea how they would justify an overstay fine.

Yes, you're right about the visa stamp and I hope you are right about there being no overstay charges even though he distinctly mentioned them as I left. Will find out soon enough and update then if there are, and what the (bogus) justification was. Thanks for the input

The under consideration stamp allows you to stay until you extension is approved. The report back date is not the end of the under consideration period.

Under the current amnesty you would not be on an overstay anyway.

I had the under considerration stamp until 5th OCT, I didn't go then because I thought everyone was now able to stay until 31st OCT, is that correct?

 

If yes, I can just go anytime from now until the 31st and get how long extention?

 

Thanks

You will get a extension to November 30th. Your 30 days will start on the 1st of November now,

Mine was stamped until October the 14th. Can I go earlier or later than that date and get the extension until Nov 30th?

If you have a under consideration stamp you should do it tomorrow the 14th. A few days after would not be a problem.

When they do the extension stamp it will be to November 30th.

If you already have a extension stamp you should go to immigration as soon as possible and request it be changed to November 30th.

Has immigration made any new announcements about obtaining a 30 day extension for those on Amnesty time only?

If your embassy is not providing letters etc

 

There are embassies that as soon as the amnesty is extended immediately stop issuing letters.

The new immigration announcement does specify vaguely it can be done without a letter from a embassy.

They have handed out a affidavit at some offices for people to tick some boxes listing the reason they need an extension.

If applied for at this time it will issued with a expiration date of November 30th.

Check with your local immigration office about getting an extension.

I was told today at Hua Hin Immigration that a Embassy letter is needed for a extension after 30 November

 

However the I/O is a complete bItch who just rolled her eyes and walked off when I started to ask polite questions so i'm not sure what the requirements really are
