Get a new stamp! Foreigners on a present 30 day visa extension can stay till November 30

Details are emerging concerning the new visa amnesty that was introduced by the Thai PM and the CCSA yesterday afternoon. Foreigners who just lately paid 1,900 baht for a 30 day visa extension are actually clear to stay in Thailand till November 30 at no further cost, but those foreigners must report back to immigration to get their visa stamp corrected.
At this stage, though announced and accredited by the CCSA and the Thai PM, the new amnesty has not been entered into the Royal Gazette but is predicted to be in the subsequent 24 hours.
The announcement follows a decision confirmed late yesterday by the CCSA to issue another grace interval for foreigners stranded in Thailand, until October 31. Under the brand new regulation, 60 day visa extensions might be issued to those that are unable to travel again to their house nation. The causes could possibly be lack of flights, issues with Covid in their home country, medical reasons or something else that prevent you from leaving the country.
Those who obtained a 30 day extension might want to go to their local immigration workplace and get the proper stamp that will point out the new expiration date of their passport, according to a narrative in The Phuket News. In the past, foreigners have wanted to current a letter from their country’s embassy requesting an extension, however Immigration Bureau Deputy Commissioner Pornchai Kuntee says “letters from embassies will not be needed.”
Key in Thailand there are two teams of foreigners: People who already applied for extensions earlier than September 26, and folks who didn’t. Today Cabinet will approve the second group of people to remain till October 31… But for the primary group, the Immigration Bureau will prolong their stay until November 30.”
Up to the top of last week, immigration officers estimated round a hundred and fifty,000 foreigners have been in Thailand beneath visa amnesty. Travel restrictions are nonetheless in place all over the world as the coronavirus continues to spread with international deaths surpassing 1 million late Sunday, Thai time. While some foreigners were capable of get their visa so as before the September 26 deadline, many had trouble acquiring a visa and could not depart the nation in time. Some tried to make appointments but had been unable to get on a list.
Good luck!
