60 Day Covid Extension available after January 29th?


Recommended Posts

OP, you would be well aware that no announcement has been made as that would be front page news. Even if not announced prior to Jan 29 does not mean very much. They have history of doing announcements when they wish. Perhaps using lotto numbers.

Fact is the world is in more precarious situation than before. Stopping extensions based on covid situation would raise the bar for stupidity.

So odds on for stopping them then?

They will stop perhaps when borders open.

So yes only one person's opinion but my guess same odds as the Oz (former) racehorse Winx. Odds on $1.05

So makes stopping them 100+ to one.

Won't happen.

No info about it yet. It is expected be done sometime next week.

 

Was it previously announced in the Royal Gazette, that is usually released after meeting on Tuesdays? 

 

Or was it previously announced on random days by the immigration department?

Any options for extending 45 Day Visa Exempt stamp?

 

I'd like to hear from knowledgeable people (think UbonJoe) what would be my options for staying longer on this visa exempt stamp I got on 14 Jan (leaving ASQ on 29 Jan)?

 

Are the standard tourist visa exemptions given from time to time applicable for me?

 

What would be the easiest conversion (I am 50+).  Thanks in advance for helpful replies!

You can obtain 30 extension to your visa exempt entry.

If the 60 day "covid extensions" are continued post Jan 29 then you could obtain one of those.

Subsequently as you are 50+ you could apply for a non O based on retirement at immigration. You would need 800k in Thai bank on day of application. Also need show that money came from overseas.

That gives you 90 day permit of stay and in last 30/45 days you could apply for 12 month extension. The requirements for that are covered in numerous threads. The main one being the 800k in bank for period of 2 months prior to application.

Any news? Today is 26, so if they are going to extend the date the announcement should be soon.

 

I had an email from the sponsor of this forum that said they will be ending on the 29th. I don't think I can apply for another one because I have too much time left on my current ext (runs out on the 28th).

 

If I can apply for another one through an agent, will I get 60 days on from the 28th, or will I get 60 from the date of application?

Hello 2530Ubon, I think I'm in your same situation.  My covid tourist permit of stay will expire on 28 February. So still have too much time 34 days left, I think they not gonna accept to extend it because i also try to book online queu and when I tick counter K at MTT and I write down visa expire on 28 february the system don''t let me book for january but i can choose only 10 days before my current permit expire mean 18 february. I hope the will make announcement to extend again the 60 days affidavit way.

Not necessarily. Everyone who can is applying for an extension early so after the deadline passes it will be a while before anyone actually needs to apply for another covid-19 extension. Mine runs out on 28 February and I'm 99% sure I'll be allowed to apply for another extension then. Of course agents want your money but remember what happened with previous deadlines.

You can just turn up at MTT without an appointment before 3 pm and make an application.
