"Under Consideration" reports from MTT -Did everyone get stamped to Nov 30?


Recommended Posts

This is a poll and a hub for info. Please let us know what outcome you got for your "Under consideration" situation at MTT (Muong Thong Thani) if you've been back to MTT to get your passport stamped after applying for a 30 day extension based on Covid.

 

Please answer a few quick questions:

 

1. Did you get stamped to Nov 30?
2. Did you just show up with your passport and appointment booking? Is there any other paperwork required?

3. Was it quick, straight forward and painless?

4. Did you show up on the exact date in the "Under consideration" stamp, or before or after?

 

Assuming that you applied before September 26, if you didn't, please say so.

 

If your local immigration is another office and you want to chime in, please feel free but be sure to mention which I/O office clearly.

 

Many thanks in advance for contributing info 🙏. I'm not due to go back till next week and will report back then.

I went today to MTT (counter K), I didnt make an appointment either. The lady at the marquee outside would not let me through and told me to book online and to come back tomorrow.   I walked

Just came back from immigration at Jomtien. Got my under consideration stamp at the 25th of September after struggling for days to get the letter from my embassy. I was assuming that I would get stamp

No surprise, per the OP this thread was meant to be specifically about MTT/Bangkok, but every post has been about locations OTHER than MTT/BKK.  Not a single MTT report.   I would also like

Just came back from immigration at Jomtien. Got my under consideration stamp at the 25th of September after struggling for days to get the letter from my embassy. I was assuming that I would get stamped until 30 November now, but of course that didn't happen I got stamped until 31 October. They are just doing what they always do and that is making up their own rules.

Yes, me too at Jomtien IMO. I paid for a 60 day extension based om marriage on 2nd September 2020. They made me jump through a lot of hoops including having to take a copy of the land plans for the condo I was renting in the Jomtien Complex. The whole process took most of the day and three visits to the IMO. I finally got the extension stamped to expire 31st October 2020. Clearly I had to pay for this extension.

So today (15th Oct) I go along to IMO (Jomtien) so enquire if my stamp could be altered based on the new 31st Amnesty and was told I could re-apply before 31st but wouold have to pay again (and no doubt have many more hurdles to jump)

 

Surely if the entire foreign community have been given a free extension to 31st October, it surely makes sense that everyone granted a 30 day extension should automaticly be given an extension to 30th November and likewise if you have a sixty day extension this should be extetended to 30th December or am I missing something.

Did you get another under consideration stamp or a extension stamp. Some people have gotten both.

To Ubon Joe my stamp clearly says extension of stay permitted up to 31 October.

It should of been to the 30th of November according to the ministerial and immigration announcements.

As I wrote some people have gotten a stamp to the 31st and a new under consideration stamp.

And what you (and we) are supposed to do after 31 of October? Did you ask them? I really hate Jomtien Immigration. The worst of the worst. 

P.S. After what they put us through at the end of September this "30 of November" rumor sounded too good to be true.

Hi - pasted from thread yesterday.

 

TRAT immigration.

 

I finally applied successfully for a covid extension on the 18th Sept at my local immigration office, after four attempts - to be given an under consideration stamp until the 8th October.

 

I am currently on Koh Chang.

 

Now, because going to immigration involves a ferry trip and driving, and because of many hours wasted, just to satisfy their bureaurcratic demands for an extension in the first place, I did phone multiple times on the 7th and 8th with no answer, so I went back on the 8th, only to be told the approval hadn't come back yet, and to wait until they phoned me. Said it should be this week, but it's Wednesday already, so not holding out much hope. As this is interfering with travel plans, I asked if it was imperative that I return on the day they phoned, and they said no - could come later.

 

I was offered no further stamp.

 

They didn't seem too clued up on current legislation, and were a bit vague. They even told me I should have phoned first.

 

It's now Thursday - no change.

KK Immigration, no additional paper work required and got stamped until the end of Nov. It took a few hours because quite a few people came to close out their consideration loop that day, mostly migrants from neighboring countries. I would also recommend you show up on the exact date listed on your passport, unless it falls on the weekend of course.

Why does it seem some ppl are getting turned away til tomorrow and some are getting stamps today?

The bigger problem is that you might be stamped tomorrow until 31 of Oct only. While people at the other IOs get stamped until 30 of Nov.

What do you think, ubonjoe, is it totally up to a certain Immigration Office to follow or not to the ministerial announcements? I suspect I will also get 31 Oct stamp at Jomtien tomorrow. Do I have something to tell them? To refer them to any specific announcement, maybe?

Or maybe the ones with a ticket get the end of November stamp. 😉 Fingers crossed.
