Even if it were 30 000, how much is that from 900 000? 3,33 percent. Now it is half of that and 70 percent of them were over 65 and had other comordibities. A bad flu season could have killed them too.
You guys just whine about how restrictions should continue until this or that like preaching high priests! You assume incorrectly you personally are supposedly immune to the great damage these lockdowns and restrictions are doing to the world economy. Add to that political tensions and stress levels growing every day. Peaceful Australia is already experiencing riots. Every day a bit more all of that.
Some day UK, US and other western country pension funds could declare, sorry, we have to cut your pensions in half, maybe more. Or the dollars, euros or pounds will become worthless because they have to print so much more in order to try to stay afloat. Or any other multitude ways this could hit back at you.
This guy is an immigration lawyer in Bangkok. He doesn't know any news about this new November 26th extension date. Why is it so d*mn hard to get official info on this stuff?
Also, from September 28 (day after extension deadline) to November 26 is exactly 60 days. I wonder if we've read/translated wrong and the document means the final day of the September 27th extension will END on November 26th. Does that make sense. Anyway, who knows....
Hi @Redman, FAZ was pretty complete in his response to your queries.
Two minor comments of possible relevance:
#1 - Unless you already foresee to leave Thailand in the 1-year period that your 1-year permission to stay will provide you, there is no need to already buy a Single-Entry Re-Entry Permit on receipt of that 1-year permission to stay stamp. You can always buy it later when you change plans and want to leave Thailand, and this can be done either at any Immigration Office or in the departure hall of the major Thai international airports (just before your departure).
#2 - When applying for the 1-year permission to stay based on your original Non Imm O-A Visa, you need to provide evidence of meeting the financial requirements. When using the Funds-in-Bank method, you need to provide evidence of +800.000 THB on a PERSONAL Thai bank-account (a joint one, e.g. with your wife/girlfriend is not allowed). But you should be aware that when you apply first time for the 1-year permission to stay based on that original Non Imm O-A Visa, that you would need to provide evidence that
a) the +800.000 THB have been seasoned already at least 2 months on your account, at moment of application, and
b) that you would need to provide evidence of the FOREIGN ORIGINS of those funds (unless you can prove that the +800.000 THB has already been long time on your Thai bank pass-book).
