The Thai government has granted another 60-day visa extension to foreign nationals who are unable to leave Thailand because of COVID-related travel restrictions.

Key Points:

  • All categories of visa holders are eligible for a 60-day visa extension if applicants meet specific COVID-19 related requirements.
  • The window for visa extensions has been extended from Sept. 27 to Nov. 26.
  • For those living in Bangkok, extension applications can be filed at the Immigration Bureau in Cheang Wattana. For those living outside of Bangkok, applications can be filed at Provincial Immigration Offices located throughout the country.

BAL Analysis: The 60-day visa extension helps foreigners with soon expiring visas to stay in the country legally. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
