Some clarification about the 60 day extensions to visas that had been extended in the past as part of the Covid visa amnesty for foreign travellers in Thailand who were ‘stuck’ in the country or wished to stay for whatever reason. Caitlin Ashworth from The Thaiger explains the details. For the latest details on everything about the re-opening of the borders, vaccines, ‘plans’, ‘models’ and ‘proposals’, check out thethaiger.com.

    Caitlin, the reason for the congestion is if you apply early for the 60 covid extension the extension begins the day you apply not from the day your extension expires. We have personal experience with this. Since most of the extensions expire at the end of the month and people realize the penalty for applying early they wait to the last day to go as we do now.
    Phuket News has a story where immigration is asking people to apply early but no mention of when the 60 extension will start. Perhaps you could get this clarified. This is the root of the problem with the congestion at month ends. We arrived on our yacht from Malaysia but cannot leave as Malaysian ports are still closed since March 18th 2019. They have accepted this as a valid reason for needing an extension. Also many people we know, especially those over 60 yrs of age, are afraid to get on an airplane until they can get vaccinated here in Thailand. It’s not clear when foreign tourists still here can get vaccinated.

    There is no notification form Thai Immigration regarding the 60 days extension beyond May. Will it be declared soon?
