i assume you current extension was to visit your Thai wife or child that can only be applied for once per entry. You will apply for the new 60 day extension that requires you complete a affidavit

Yes you can apply for more than one.

I did this today.   I already had a 60 day extension based on marriage (due to expire on 25 Nov) and went to Chaeng Wattana for a new Covid extension. Initially the officer wasn't sure I can

Thanks Dr Jack. Does this 60 day extension begin on the date of application or the date of the current permission to stay expiring? I have until Nov. 30th based on the latest covid extension with embassy letter done at MTT.

This has been asked in various threads . My limited reading of MTT is that the extension has been dated from Nov 30. 

Some other offices the commencement has been from date of application.

Doesn't really matter much now as we are in final countdown. 

Personally I would make online appointment asap and accept whatever is on offer.

Bit off topic however I wonder/hope that governments are aware of world situation. Many countries going from bad to worse.

No one should be forced to leave Thailand currently.

I think there is a box that is basically stating "cannot exit Thailand due to Covid situation"

I read one report from MTT that the io basically pointed which box to cross.

 

Regarding this affidavit, am I correct in understanding that if you DO have an embassy letter that is currently valid (dated within 30 days of the date you apply for the extension) then the affidavit is not necessary?  Or is the affidavit still required even with a valid embassy letter?

 

Thank you!

As per usual it depends on where you applying for your extension.

Some offices are not providing affidavit. CM notable.

Many embassies are currently not issuing letter. Which imm office do you deal with.

It'll be MTT, with an embassy letter less than 30 days old at the time of appointment (which is the end of this week).

US embassy is stating no letter is required for an extension by the Royal thai government’s immigration bureau. Is the US embassy the only country with this this agreement? Perhaps stating which country of origin would bring better clarity to extension requirements.

So I just got back from immigration. Did Tm.30 first then went for the 60 day "covid" extension. And I got an under consideration stamp to come back Dec 7. IO wasn't very friendly and said I should go back home and get a "family visa" and Thai government's good will can end any time and then kept on about foreigners staying here now doing bad things....etc...

 

So not sure. anybody else got the under consideration letter or am I the lucky one? 😞

No letter needed for Americans at the present time. From the US Embassy website:

 

Last update: October 13, 2020

Q: What is the status on the Royal Thai Government’s visa amnesty?
A: On September 30, 2020, the Royal Thai Government officially approved a grace period until October 31, 2020 for persons in Thailand in temporary visa status (of all visa types) to depart the country. The measure was published on that date in the Royal Thai Gazette.  The grace period further extends the automatic visa extension that was first announced in late March due to Covid-related travel difficulties.

According to verbal communication from the Royal Thai Government’s Immigration Bureau, non-Thai nationals can visit any Thai Immigration office to request a 60-day extension of stay.  Thai Immigration will not require a letter from the Embassy as part of the extension request, so the U.S. Embassy and Consulate General Chiang Mai will no longer provide letters of support for Thai visa extensions.  For more information about applying for Thai visa extensions, please visit www.immigration.go.th or contact the Thai Immigration Bureau.

Please note the Royal Thai government is under no obligation to extend short-term visas and may end the practice at any time.  If your request is denied or you do not wish to change to an appropriate long-term visa category, you should begin making plans to depart Thailand as soon as possible.  Please contact the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok or Consulate General in Chiang Mai if you need financial assistance to depart Thailand.

K is in another building. Just one floor. One big room.  TM.30 and 90 day report are in other building on 2nd floor. You go up then walk out to parking lot and there you get the forms then fill them out and get a number and wait outside on the parking lot until your number gets called.

 

I am German.

Today, Monday 23rd, I went to Chaengwattana for 60day covid extension. I got an 'under consideration' stamp to go back Dec 8th. 

Got there at around 1:30pm and left at 6pm.
