The Royal Thai Government has extended visa amnesty for foreigners, who cannot leave Thailand due to the country’s COVID-19 control measures, until 31 October 2020.
This makes the fourth extension of the policy, which first took effect from 26 March to 30 April 2020. The second extension was from 1 May until 31 July 2020, and the third extension from 1 August to 26 September 2020.
The Royal Thai Government cited the COVID-19 pandemic remained severe in several countries, and the number of new cases globally continued to rise. International travel restrictions – land, water and air – are still in place in several countries. This affects foreigners stranded in Thailand due to limited international travel.
Foreigners are advised to contact the Immigration Bureau for an extension and make a notification of residence.
