Foreigners residing in Thailand have until November 26 to apply for ‘COVID extensions’


Must read

Foreigners staying in Thailand with so-called ‘COVID extensions’ of 60 days can now apply to extend their stay beyond November.

Last Monday (September 20), Immigration released an order confirming the extension of the grace period given to foreigners detained in Thailand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Previously, the deadline for COVID extensions was September 27, 2021. However, the new order confirms that the grace period has been extended to November 26, 2021.

This means that if someone applied for a 60-day extension at the end of November, he or she would be allowed to stay in Thailand next year.

The grace period for COVID extensions was launched last year to help foreigners trapped in Thailand and unable to return to their home country.

Although the vast majority of tourists have since returned home, there are still those who have stayed in Thailand since the start of the pandemic.

With many countries continuing to close borders or require anyone entering to show proof of vaccinations, the situation regarding international travel remains problematic for some.

Therefore, the Thai government has announced a new extension of the grace period.

A Covid19 visa extension costs 1,900 baht.
