Foreigners stranded in Thailand due to COVID-19 can now stay until end of March

The Thai Immigration Bureau has announced that foreigners who are still stranded in Thailand due to the COVID-19 situation can remain in the country until the end of March.

 

Anyone who had applied for a temporary visa extension due to COVID-19 were permitted to stay in Thailand until 29 January.

 

But according to a new order, signed by Immigration chief Sompong Chingduang, foreigners who apply for a so-called ‘COVID extension’ will be able to stay in Thailand until 30 March 2021.

 

The order will once again be welcomed by those people stuck in Thailand due to COVID-19 and need to or want to stay longer.

 

Anyone whose temporary extension was due to expire are advised to visit their local immigration office for a further extension. It will cost 1,900 baht.

 

Special thanks to Thai Visa Centre for the information.

Take my situation for example. My passport country is UK. So you're right I am technically not 'stuck' in Thailand because it is possible for me to return to the UK. But I have nothing there. My home

Seriously, who is really "stuck" in Thailand? Other than a few Aussies trying to get onto repat flights I can't think of many other nationalities that have truly been "stuck".

My wife and I are citizens of different countries.  Neither can enter the others country, so we would be separated from each other indefinitely if we went "home".  Lots of people in similar situations

Who cares? I guess they don't want to see the country entirely devoid of foreigners after all.

You can go about 2 weeks before your current extension ends in February.

May I apply this extension if my university ED expires? Because my country USA  has the most COVID cases. Thanks.

Giving aways/selling your furniture, leaving friends/loved ones behind, buying a plain ticket, likely having to quarantine for 14 days, and having to find a new place to live in your home country (likely a yearly rent contract)... and then having to start over again when you come back to Thailand. That's being "stuck" with the best option being to get COVID extensions.

 

Obviously, very few are "stuck," as in "I desperately want to go back home."

But many are "stuck," as in "can't get a work/etc. visa because borders are closed."

You can apply for a 60 day covid 19 extension up to the 30th of March at this time.
