    1. Dear Jay,
      Good day.
      To get a new Tourist Visa. It is not possible to get it inside Thailand.
      Your option is to get a 60-day COVID-19 extension from the local immigration office.
      Thank you.

  2. I am an Indian citizen and staying in Canada on tourist visa. my spouse has non-immigrant B visa and staying in Thailand. i would like to join my family as soon as ban on travel is lifted. i was told by Thai Embassy in Canada that i cannot apply for non-immigrant “o” visa from Canada. I will have to apply from India only. in COVID situation it is not advisable to travel to India for visa. is there any other way to obtain visa? alternatively, can i get 60 days tourist visa from Thai Embassy in Canada.

    1. The best thing to do is wait until you can return to India to obtain the Non immigrant O visa. because even though you can get a tourist visa in Thailand, you may not be able to enter Thailand as tourist soon. It may be until September or October of this year that a tourist can enter Thailand.

  3. Hello I’m a US Citizen I have already gotten a 30 day extension, but due to COVID-19 not able to leave now I need a extension

  4. I hold travel visa from Hong Kong to Thailand(Bangkok) for a leisure holiday however, due to the Covid-19 is getting worse my flight back to HONG KONG is canceled and I am now stuck in Bangkok. The reason why I’m emailing the immigration is because my Travel visa has expired on 1st April 2020 and I read about the new Thai PM announced that the Visa can be automatically extend due to Covid-19 which means we do not need to visit immigration and we are authorized to be staying in Thailand. Moreover, I just want to make sure if this is correct information cause I don’t want be commit crime so would you please explain to me if this is the way to do it. Thanks

    1. Yes, if you did not apply for an extension, you are automatic extended and permitted to stay until April 30. If you applied for extension, then you are permitted to stay until the date in your visa extension stamp, if that date is beyond April 30.
