Thailand’s Ministry of Interior has proposed a second round of automatic visa extensions for non-Thai citizens in Thailand whose visas will expire on or after April 30, 2020, along with a temporary exemption from the 90-day report duty, due to the continued travel restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On April 21, the Cabinet approved the second automatic visa extension. All types of visas will therefore be automatically extended to July 31, 2020. A temporary suspension of the 90-day report requirement has also been granted until July 31, 2020.
These visa relief measures will officially be implemented when the announcement is published in the Royal Thai Gazette.
Tilleke & Gibbins will continue to monitor and provide updates on visa relief measure developments.
