    Well, anyone that gets caught on overstay, and is taken to the IDC better hope it's pretty easy.


    Because they'll be locked up (and paying for it) until they can clear a flight out. : )

    Go home.

    You have the foresight and maturity of a six-year-old.

    Sooner or later it's going to bite your arse in a major way and it would be best to be home when it does.

    Go home.
    Or get a 60 day family extension if married to a Thai.

    Or get a not fit to fly certificate from a government hospital to get 30 days.

    Or book a flight home.

    I could do that, but I'll rather stay here and animate the forum.

    Thanks

    You're done...Only way out now is to top yourself. Jumping from a tall building is the common method.

    May not be that easy...

    You must give proof that you have at least 400,000 baht in a Thai bank account in your name, and that it has been there for at least 2 months).

    That is true for all consecutive marriage visa extensions of stay but as far as I remember there is no such requirement for your first one.

    New rule from immigration. Especially applies to citizens of countries who are naturalized citizens.

    I do have some sympathy for those who thought another extension might come. Immigration told me in late March that my only choice was to leave Thailand, that there were no special arrangements for Covid. Then a few days later that changed. However, to be fair, Immigration have very publicly made the 26th a final deadline.

    Last option, visit one of the visa agents. Some have their own ways to do. Not a recommendation. Just saying.
    Visa agents know their way through the immigration minefield, and also equally hooky IOs, so there's always a route if you're prepared to pay.

    A mate renting my place with no papers asked his agent what docs he needs to register the address, and was advised not to bother, just give his (agent's) address which the IOs recognise and will plod no further.

    Well it won't be easy, it won't be like before when calling your travel agent and saying please book me on a flight to London tonight was no problem.

    On one of the local radio stn's this morning they recommend all foreigners carry a copy of their passport and visa now as they're expecting cops to be randomly (*cough*) asking non Thai's for proof of their legality to be in Thailand after the 27th. I've got no doubt they'll be rounding overstayers up by the rozza-wagon full but don't give a shit being legal, and always carrying a laminated copy of my visa and pp front page + a local driver's licence anyway.

    Yep for sure a Thai immigration site on facebook was informing all Laos nationals last week that the borders opened on the 30th September, when its opens on the 26th, good little overstay earner there from people.

    My Laos friend informed today,any travelling back to Laos are in for a big surprise, her uncle who's a cop in Laos told her,that the Police/army will be confiscating any belongings that are brought through the borders because of possible bacteria on there stuff,luckily she has an extension to her passport.

    This covid shit will be making good money for the Thai/Laos depts.............

    Funny how lots of produce is making its way from both Laos/Thailand for companies......

    Laos borders are open?

    Migrant workers from neighbouring countries have Visa Amnesty until November, btw.
