Is there amnesty for non o marriage multi visa?

The OP's question of what will happen to all these people who do not have the 400 K on a Thai bank must be a couple of thousands.  

The 400k has to be the the bank for 2 months prior to application. After the under consideration period that money can be used. Hardly a fortune.

As for the other clap trap regarding stamps obtained via an agent, I can assure you that they are genuine and valid.

Yes there does seem to be such an amnesty. My nearest farang neighbour, a German, is on multi entry from Savannakhet.

 

He's been able to obtain extensions from immigration in Sakon Nakhon with assurances that they will continue to do so until the the border and the consulate reopens.

Interesting. I wonder can I get this from Bangkok.

Well, there's only one way to find out. Go and ask. He last went to Laos for his visa in January and the borders were slammed closed shortly thereafter.

 

So he can't go anywhere anyway, so I guess granting him continuous extensions is the only option for immigration. And I'm sure he's not the only one in this situation.

How else should a man stay with his family if he can't show that amount of money?

 

"Go to see an agent" is what I've read very often. But how serious and legal are these documents from an agent?

 

 

Use a proper one, which is usually from a law office.   There are some trusted tour companies that may arrange one also. 

 

Talk to other expats that you trust.   See if they can point you in the right direction.

I am also on the Multi Entry Non-Imm "O" visa and cannot do border runs either. Topah, all you need to do is wait until just before your entry stamp date expires and go and apply for a 60 Day extension to visit your wife and that will cost you 1900B towards the end of the extension you will see what is happening with the borders and see if you can do border runs or not or you can then apply for a 1 year extension based on marriage. If you decide on the 1 year extension then you must make sure that you meet the financial requirements.

I will wait couple months and see how things go. I dont know how some people think there is a problem or issues. I am just looking for options. I took multi entry visa after 12 years of extensions and if the last option is to make extension after 3 months, I can do it. But idea of multi entry non o is that you can travel as many times as you want during the first year and best scenario...apply the first extension after 12 months. Now I will lose that option if I do extension in January and I need to have 30 days waiting period, pay new entries etc.

covid-19 and the pandemic that it prompted caused a lot of disruption worldwide.   There are a lot of visa/entry options pre-covid19 that are currently unavailable; this is outside of most of our control.

Border runs are impossible I guess and situation is not that easy at the moment for many.

My question is that is there amnesty for the people who just got non o visa based on marriage with multi entry? 

You are good until 14 January. If the border is still closed you can apply for a 60 day extension. If after 30 days on that extension, there appears to be no upcoming opening of the border, you'll either have to leave or 'qualify' and request a one year extension of stay based on your reason of obtaining the Non 'O'.

 

I'm betting the borders will be open by then.

From 14th January 60 days extra without losing my non o visa multi entry would be perfect. I need to go to Europe that time (Mid March) whatever the situation is.
