  1. My visa (non immigrant B) is valid until 30th April 2020, as well as my re-entry visa, which was based on the same date of expiry. I was due to come back to Thailand in time to apply for a new visa for another year’s stay, in order to get my work permit for the new work year. Due to the lockdown ( in my country, South Africa, this far until 30 April 2020) I was not allowed to leave the country to fly back to Thailand as planned, and I had a flight booked for 17 April which was duly cancelled until further notice. I have heard that, under given circumstances, there is a possibility to apply online for a temporary extension of said visa and re-entry permit. I would appreciate if you could please advise me about this possibility, and where can I go to do this online. Thankyou kindly!

    1. Dear Rikus,
      There is no online application for the 1 year extension. However, you can apply for the new non immigrant B visa from the Thai Embassy in your current location so that you can return to Thailand and also you need to obtain a certificate of entry from the same Thai Embassy.
