Visa of stranded foreigners extended till July 31


The government has offered the second automatic visa extension for foreigners who are stranded in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Thai Cabinet on Wednesday (April 22) approved the automatic visa extension, Natapanu Nopakun, deputy spokesman at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said.
Foreigners whose visa expired after March 26, will be permitted to stay until July 31, without having to apply for an extension.
There is no need to submit documents, pay fees or do 90-day reporting.
Many foreigners are stranded in Thailand due partly to flight cancellations and lockdown restrictions imposed by many governments. Thailand also has banned flights except special flights allowed by the government.
