The Govt of Thailand on Friday extends the 60-day “Covid” visa extension application deadline by two months (until July 25). The announcement comes after the extension of Thailand’s State of Emergency to July 31.
The Covid visa extension date was initially set for May 24, but Thai Immigration discreetly extended it to July 25, as they have done in the past.
Those who cannot return home because to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis may be granted a visa extension.
Thailand Covid Visa Extension
According to the Bureau of Immigration, foreigners will now have until July 25, 2022, to extend their special COVID extension stamp. The COVID extension was set to expire on May 24, however, it has been extended once again. Those who request visa relief or extension are granted 60 days of stay.
- If you have 15 days visa-on-arrival, you cannot have a COVID extension
- If you have a 60-day Tourist Visa, you can have a COVID extension if necessary
- If you have a 30 days Visa Exemption, you can have a COVID extension if necessary
- If you have a Non-immigrant B, ED, or O (Volunteer), for example, you can no longer have a COVID extension
Please keep in mind that this extension of stay is not automatic; you must request it at your local immigration office, and approval will be at the officer’s discretion.
