Visa Extension Question - Can I Get a 30 Day Extension?


Sexyfarangman

Recommended Posts

Right now I'm in Pattaya on a 60 day visa. I want to get it extended so I can stay a total of 68 days. It is my understanding that in the past all that was needed was a trip to the Immigration office in Jomtien for a 30 day extension. However, there was recently on this forum a link to the Thai Visa website where there was a report that at certain land crossings into Thailand the immigration authorities are refusing entry into Thailand from Malaysia and other countries of holders of valid visas obtained in those countries if the holder has just completed a 60 day stay in Thailand. The report quotes immigration officials as telling the visa holders that they would have fly into Thailand from Penang.

 

Does anyone on this forum know if this new policy will affect my ability to get a 30 day extension from the Jomtien office?

Assume you don't leave the country during these 68 days , you still can get a 30 day extension on a 60 day tourist visa .

Immigration Jomtien , 1900Bht .

You're already in country, so you have nothing to worry about.

As far as everything I have heard/read, this is still the case. I would not worry, but it's not a bad idea to keep your ears open.

I think it might be prudent for anyone on a 60 day tourist visa to visit immigration to get the extra 30 days before August 12th as we really don't know what else they might start doing. For all we know the 30 day extension  might become a thing of the past as well as the border runs to activate second entries.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
