So does that mean that they will continue to give covid extension for tourist visa after January 29?

 

That hasn't been announced yet either way.

Need an appointment? Before I didn't need any appointment.

Yes, they insist on an appointment now. If you don't have one, you wait until they take care of all the appointments, unless there's a big lull in the action. They want to control the flow, and although last time they controlled it via a first come, first served manner (in the tent), now they want control via appointment.

Tourist Visas? What? I don't know one Ex Pat that is currently here on a Tourist Visa? 

 

Do you mean for nationalities who were trapped here and were granted extentions multiple times, because they're respective countries government could not get them home?  Covid 19 emergency extentions? 

 

The people that fell through the proverbial cracks? 

 

Even expats who were doing Visa runs for 90 day Tourist Visas for over 30 years were forced to do long stay 1 year Visa's. 

 

Learn something new everyday I guess.
