Chinese tourists in Chiang Mai are asking for permission from the Immigration Office in the province to extend their stay in Thailand, out of concerns of the coronavirus outbreak in China.

About 200 to  300 Chinese tourists lined up to file their requests for visa extension per day last week.

The office would normally grant an extension of 15-day or 30-day for tourists who wish to stay longer in the country. 

However, 50 tourists from Wuhan were not allowed to remain and have been sent back to China.
