I tried to apply for a 60 day extension but was told by the immigration officer that I would need to provide an embassy letter. I've heard reports that other offices have granted extensions without an embassy... can anyone clarify which offices?

use agent price 18000b extension 2 months

Nobody is a refugee. Not sure where you came up that.

This is exactly what I'd expect and what I was shouted down for predicting earlier this month. The form is not a gift for anyone that wants to remain. It's a legal declaration that you can't leave and

Wow, that's bad luck! Which office did you go to? I went to ubon and was overcharged - 3,900 baht but my application was accepted. Have to report back next week for the final stamp of approval.

Chiang Mai Immigration office near the airport. I was told that "someone" outside could help me out without documentation, but I think I'll pass on that. 

Might have to try a nearby province tomorrow

Arrived on visa exemption, extended once and now on visa amnesty which ends on Saturday. From what I've read online, the extension was for anyone on amnesty so I didn't think it would be a problem leaving it so late. Now I guess I have tomorrow to sort it or risk overstay

Did you apply for an extension prior to the 26th September or did you leave it and get lucky with the late amnesty announcement?

Left it late and lucked out I guess. I was going to extend during the final days but then some news sources reported it was going to be extended so I decided to wait. Not hopeful for another last minute amnesty extension which is why I wanted to do the 60 day extension

Do you have a recent history of back to back visa exempts prior to covid? If so perhaps they don't deem you as being a genuine refugee.

Apparently they are not familiar with the requirements for a 60 day extension. All that is needed is a affidavit completed and signed.

Back to back visas yes, but I have a fresh passport so they didn't see that and they didn't bother to check on the computer

Perhaps that's why - you didn't apply prior to the announcement last time

Anyone happen to have a copy of the affidavit form? maybe I could print a copy and fill it out to see if they would accept it, or any other official sources that state the embassy letter is not required?

That's a good idea - try searching 60 day extension in the TVF search box - there are a lot of people who have posted the forms. As your a tourist entry, you could fly to Ubon and do it there - stay in a hotel the night before. You may be charged 3,900 instead of the 1,900 elsewhere
