Thailand’s Ministry of Interior has proposed a second round of automatic visa extensions for non-Thai citizens in Thailand whose visas will expire on or after April 30, 2020, along with a temporary exemption from the 90-day report duty, due to the continued travel restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On April 21, the Cabinet approved the second automatic visa extension. All types of visas will therefore be automatically extended to July 31, 2020. A temporary suspension of the 90-day report requirement has also been granted until July 31, 2020.
These visa relief measures will officially be implemented when the announcement is published in the Royal Thai Gazette.
Tilleke & Gibbins will continue to monitor and provide updates on visa relief measure developments. For more details about these immigration measures, or for any matter relating to immigration issues in Thailand, please contact Penrurk Phetmani at [email protected] or +66 2056 5555.
