Visas for ppl in Thailand atm - Covid-19 and the outlook

Recommended Posts

Hello people, hope alls well. Question to anybody else who's in Thailand at the moment - you guys heard anything or got any links with info about our Visa situation?Β 

Mines a 6 month tourist visa, runs out late June. But this bullshit won't be over by then, no way. Don't wanna go back to Poland or UK as Corona is way way way worse there and will continue.Β 

Will the Thai Gov allow us to overstay the visa without fines and jail etc, given the exceptional circumstances?

Appreciate any info ppl got, and if anyone out there is in the same situation as me hit up my DMs no prob.

Take care everybody πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ

The current situation (who knows how soon it will change) is that overstays are still being fined as overstays, but you won't be punished by deportation or being barred from re-entering the country, as are the penalties for overstay in normal circumstances. The fine, as far as I know, is the same amount as it always is, 500 Baht per day of overstay. So, get to your Immigration Office before your visa runs out and go over what your options are for extensions.

Cheers for this πŸ˜€

Also have a multiple entry type visa, gotta do border run and back every 2 months. Done 1 already to Cambodia, but assume that's not an option anymore? Wondering if I'll still have to.

Will check out extension options with the office like you say. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
