For those who need to extend their tourist visa, the Thai Immigration Bureau asks that applicants make an appointment online to reserve their spot in line. The bureau says the online appointments are aimed at preventing the spread of Covid-19 by reducing overcrowding and making sure people abide by social distancing practices.

Applicants who need to extend a tourist visa, or the new Special Tourist Visa, should make an online reservation queue at bangkokimmigration.com (astonishingly all in Thai with no other languages, although there is a menu item ‘Queue Online’ on the top right hand corner of the site).

Walk-in services are still available at Muang Thong Thani Temporary Services Centre.

When making a queue reservation, fill in the required information, print out the confirmation email and bring it to the appointment.

    Interesting. I mail my 90 day in which is easy and visit once a year to renew my retirement extension. There were few people at immigration last time so maybe this is a good way to reduce the number of people there. It used to be packed with others when I first got here. Maybe some miss being with 500 of their closest friends.

    For my last extension for Non-O visa, i also had to make an appointment online.
    When i deposit my visa file, i scanned a QRCode on a board. This QRCode lead to website with LINE address of an immigration officer. Then, i filled an e form with attachments and i sent. I received an appointment date in return under 5 minutes.
    When i’ve been there on d-day, i waited only 15 minutes instead of 1 hour.
    I think this is a very good thing.

      The site seems pretty clear, as does the pic here, and the article – for Bangkok / Maung Thong Thani Immigration.

        In my Province (not Bangkok), this is also the new regulation.

          Congratulations.

          Try booking for your province on the Muang Thong Thani site.

          God almighty, how simple do things have to be for you?

      Hello g
      I live in the south and here, it is notified by immigration staff : “For ANY visa renew, you must register on the queue list via QR-Code”. Then, demanders receive an appointment date by email.
      This is exactly what i did 15 days ago for a NON-O Visa.

    The link quoted ( https://bangkokimmigration.com ) is only in Thai language, which is probably not much use to most expats.
    Also – Not explicitly stated in the article is that the system ONLY applies to Bangkok residents (i.e. Immigration District 1)

      There is a menu item in the top right, in English, to book a position in the queue (we’ve added a screenshot)

      It’s explicit in the screenshot that it’s only for Immigration Muang Thong Thani.

      How spoon-fed do you need to be?

        Do you really need to be a jerk, in every reply that you make? Consider taking a little me and helpful approach.

    As a person who is never off the computer it might be easy for you ij for some maybe it’s not so easy stop belittling people and keep your thoughts to yourself hopeful one day soon your visa is declined and you have to come back to UK with your tail between your legs 555

    They should just stress the point that when booking online, one must go in the other center, not at the govt complex. They write somewhere on the website but the confirmation email does not report it, so one may forget. It is not a question of spoonfeeding, but just poor UX management.

PM Prayut postponing Covid‐19 vaccination citing paperwork issues

PM Prayut postponing Covid‐19 vaccination citing paperwork issues | The Thaiger

Thailand’s PM Prayut Chan-o-cha is postponing his inaugural Covid‐19 vaccination citing paperwork issues with the AstraZeneca vaccine shipment. According to Khaosod English, the vaccine shipment was sent to Thailand last Wednesday from South Korea, but was missing the additional required paperwork.

Prayut was supposed to receive the vaccine tomorrow, but the highly‐publicised event will not be happening. According to Khaosod English, an official at the Secretariat of the Prime Minister has also confirmed the news of the postponement without citing a reason.

Although the Sinovac vaccine is also being administered in Thailand, healthcare officials say Prayut is too old to receive it as its age limit is 60. Prayut is 66 years old, which is well over the oldest age that can receive the vaccine.

The Sinovac vaccine drive is set to commence on Monday, 2 weeks behind schedule. Those frontline health workers, hospitality workers and vulnerable groups will receive the vaccines first.

Meanwhile, Phuket is waiting for the green lightto start administering vaccines and has already held a vaccine administration rehearsal overseen by Phuket Vice Governor Pichet Panapong along with other health officials.

Pichet says the first vaccine round of 4,000 doses should arrive early in March, with the 2nd and 3rd set of doses, 16,000 and 48,000 respectively, to arrive in April and May.

The government pandemic center reported 72 new confirmed infections on Friday, after first only reporting 45 new cases. 37 of those cases were locally-transmitted, and one 6 year old Thai girl returning from the UK was found to have tested positive for the virus. Samut Sakhon, again, reported over half of the new cases yesterday, as it remains the epicentre of Thailand’s second wave of the coronavirus outbreak.

The total virus tally in Thailand sits at 25,764, with 83 fatalities. The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration has not yet announced the amount of new cases for today.

There is no word yet on when PM Prayut will be rescheduled to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine.
