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

I can't see the embassies complying with the on again off again letter requirement, except perhaps for the Americans.

So far, I'm hearing from a few people in Pattaya that they're having difficulty in obtaining another stamp extension to their existing one that expires at the end of this month for free. Can anyone validate this, or are other people going to Jomtien Immigration and getting their free visa extension stamp (having paid previously before Sept 26) without any problems?

I would expect them to start them up again if the pressure was there.

Yes, this is correct. I posted about it here: 

 

 

The only thing new I've seen since I posted that is that they're now telling people to come back on Oct 29th. I guess they realized that having weeks of applicants come back on the same day could be a bit much... But two days seems like far too little, as well, and I have no idea why they're adding this extra step at all.

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

 

That's not what they are doing in Jomtien.  They required us to go in on OCt 16th.  Took her passport and said come back monday.

On monday, they stamped her for OCT 31, and said we will have to come back OCT 29 for our November stamp.  Despite what SHOULD have been given (the November 30 stamp).

So, instead of one visit for one stamp, I'm having to go to immigration office weekly.

Thanks @trappedinasia. My girlfriend has decided to use an agency and send her passport to the Bangkok immigration office. She was told this morning by Jomtien immigration that they wouldn't be able to do it there. Something about not being able to access her records on the computer due to her previous stamp being issued originally at Bangkok. Sounds like a total cop out to me, but she's not waiting until October 29 to see if they change their stance.

Is she using an agent to get a long term visa, or just to get the Nov 30th stamp?
