“Covid-19” visa extension deadline tomorrow, no word from immigration
  • follow us in feedly

The deadline to apply for a 60-day “Covid-19” visa extension is tomorrow, although it is possible that the Thai Immigration Bureau could continue the scheme for another two months. The announcements in the past have often been last minute and sometimes made even after the deadline had passed.

The 60-day extension was launched for foreigners who are unable to leave the country due to cancelled flights and travel restrictions related to the ongoing pandemic.

The extension costs 1,900 baht and requirements can vary depending on each immigration office. Most require a TM30 form signed by a landlord or hotel manager for notification of residence and some may ask for a letter from an embassy saying the foreigner is unable to travel to their home country.

At the Bangkok Immigration Office, those who recently travelled, or who visited areas considered to be at high risk of Covid-19 transmission, are required to undergo an on-site rapid antigen test before entering.
