Royal Thai Police Immigration Granting 60-day Extensions at Muang Thong Thani


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping that Phuket Immigration is equally generous and understanding. I previously got an extension to Nov 30 from MTT. Please share your experience with Phuket Immigration for Covid 60 day extension, anyone?

I read in some other thread that Phuket Immigration was the first one making the new affidavit available. Given the incredibly weak Tourism industry in Phuket, one might expect them to be particularly understanding.

 

There's always the option of flying up to BKK and visiting MTT. Since the pandemic begin, I have nothing but good things to say about MTT's understanding and efficiency. I'm well aware that I have no right to remain in Thailand, even while awaiting Thai Elite approval, so I am grateful for Immigration providing a legal way for me and others to ride out this pandemic in about the safest place one can possibly be. I don't mind spending a little extra money here and there, even if it's not even a rounding error in the overall economic scheme of things, as a way of showing my appreciation.

Thanks for the info, I was planning on going to Chaeng Watthana tomorrow to apply for an extension. Should I just go to MTT instead? I recently moved to Bangkok proper and filed a new TM30 just so I can go apply to extend at the main immigration office. I was getting tired of being jerked around by Samut Prakan.

You obtain extension at MTT.

Think for extension at MTT you need to make online appointment.

Reports of being asked for tm30.

A photocopy would be good idea.

Ok, thanks for the info. This whole time I was under the impression that I was supposed to go to Chaeng Watthana. I have a printout of the TM30, my landlady filed it online. So I'm good there. Guess nothing is going to happen until Monday anyway.

This thread is not about extensions but gives good advice about MTT location etc

Thanks, but just to be clear, I'm on a VE tourist visa and have gotten the post-amnesty extension due to COVID. So do I still have to go to MTT? I've always had to go to CW before to get tourist visa extensions when I was staying in BKK before. That's why I'm confused about this.

When I visited MTT to extend a single entry non Immigration o visa for 30 days, before the last amnesty started, they sent us back to CW.

When they say all visas do they mean all visas now?

Annual extensions marriage, retirement etc are done at CW.

The 60 day extensions discussed here are done at MTT.

MTT are also doing 90 day reports and certificate of Residence.

"Royal Thai Police Immigration" RTPI

I find this 'title' perplexing maybe irreconciable.

The Immigration Bureau is under the Ministry of the Interior.

In 1998 the Thailand National Police Department was transferred to the Office of the Prime Minister, currently being supervised directly by PM Prayuth. TNPD was renamed RTP.

(Wikipedia)

When I was at MTT in September 2020 I saw officers wearing what I would characterize as an IO uniform but also wearing the RTP patch. 

Organizationally, RTPI doesn't seem to exist. It appears that functionally the Ministry of the Interior's oversight of IO's does not exist. Wonder how that works when it comes to operating  budgets? I could see RTP officers being loaned to the Immigration Bureau.
