Application deadline for visa amnesty extended to Oct 31


BANGKOK – All visas extended on or before October 31 under the latest amnesty will go into effect collectively from 1 November, said the Immigration Bureau in a press conference last Tuesday.

Immigration Bureau Deputy Commissioner Maj Gen Pornchai Kuntee explained that there were two different groups of visa holders: those who applied for extensions before the original cut-off date of Sept 26 and those who hadn’t.

Foreigners who did not apply for the visa amnesty before the original September 26 deadline will have until October 31 to do so and are advised to submit their applications as soon as possible to avoid overcrowding at local immigration offices.
