GOOD NEWS Visa Exemption Extended To 30 Days


misteregg

Recommended Posts

Tonight there is breaking news from a reliable forum and Bangkok journalist that visa exemptions will be extended to 30 days instead of the 7 Thailand have now.

 

Whilst I'm no expert, I think this means you can extend your 30 day visa for another 30 days for 1,900 baht at Immigration. No need to do a visa run (which you can't do any more anyway).

 

This all starts on August 29th of this year.

 

Check The Nation and Bangkok Post websites for more information.

 

This is good news for all tourists, as they can now stay for 60 days uninterrupted ( apart from a trip to Jomtien )

 

It is clear that the NCPO are trying to help tourism and only trying to crack down on those foreigners staying long periods and possibly working illegally.

 

Glad I can bring you this good news.

GOOD NEWS FROM THAI IMMIGRATION

Longer visa exemption extensions begin August 29, 2014

 

BANGKOK: -- The Immigration Bureau has announced that of August 29. 2014 you will be able to extend your visa exemption period whilst you're in Thailand by 30 days, instead of the current 7 days, giving a total visa-exemption stay of 60 days.  The fee for extension of stay is 1,900 Baht (unchanged).

 

Currently, a visa exemption entry can be extended by 7 days at your nearest Immigration office. From August 29th, it can be extended by 30 days. In effect, you can be in the country without a visa for 60 days.

 

Also - the Commander of Immigration has removed the proposed lifetime ban for overstaying 10 years. Thaivisa will publish the new, more lenient rules shortly.

 

The Immigration Commander has also stated that immigration are working to ensure that the new rules are being standardized at both immigration checkpoints and immigration offices nationwide.  

 

If you are traveling on visa-exempt or with a tourist visa, bring these documents for your extension:

 

1. Your onward flight ticket or eTicket out of Thailand within the 30 days

2. Minimum 10,000 Baht, or rather 20,000 Baht

3. Hotel booking confirmation - and if you have it, your itinerary

4. One photo, passport sized.

5. Application fee, 1,900 Baht

 

It is not clear whether after 29th August this will still be an automatic refusal stamp with 30 days to leave, or whether the procedure will be changed and you will instead be granted an extension of 30 days.

 

Thaivisa News thanks the Immigration HQ in Bangkok for these updates. We are expecting more updates in the coming days and weeks. Thaivisa News is due to meet up with the Immigration Commander and his staff next week for a longer interview. Watch this space and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest Immigration updates.

 

In addition to Thaivisa was able to get this info confirmed direct with the Immigration Bureau, we also thank Thaivisa member and freelance journalist Scott Mallon in Bangkok for supplying us with this video explaining the news in Youtube video format:

The question of evidence of onward travel within 30 days before being allowed to board hasn't yet been clarified.   If it isn't, for UK-based guys at least, you're still better off with a 25 quid 60 day tourist visa - no trip to Jomtien, no need to have evidence of an onward flight, and no 1,900 Baht fee to pay.

You right m8 :GoldenSmile1:

 

IMHO

It is still better to get a tourist visa from a consulate in UK. ( hassle free)

25 quid VS 1.900 baht (35 quid :What: )

From that "reliable forum" we have this :-

 

That is the new procedure. Re-entry visa thing must be their equivalent of out/in. From their guidelines..

  

 The alien must not enter the Kingdom by exploiting 30-day visa exemptions undertaking method “in-out” or called by foreigners as “Visa run”. Aliens use the advantage of Tourist Visa Exemption by leaving Thailand and returning immediately for the purpose of extending their stay, which is considered from the tourism point of view to be longer than necessary and not in line with the purpose permitted while entering country.

    • 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.
