Thailand extends foreign visas

Published on : Wednesday, April 22, 2020

The cabinet of Thailand has approved a second automatic visa extension for foreigners for three more months in a bid to prevent long queues at immigration centres and stem the spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak.

 

 

 

The foreigners whose visas had expired since March 26 will be permitted to stay until July 30 without having to apply for an extension, said Narumon Pinyosinwat, spokeswoman for the Thai government. A similar extension was granted until April 30.

 

 

To combat the Covid-19 outbreak, the government of Thailand has since late March banned entry to foreigners, except diplomats and work-permit holders.

 

 

 

Thailand has also confirmed that the country has 19 new coronavirus cases, the lowest daily increase since March 14, and one death, a 50-year-old taxi driver.

 

 

 

This Southeast Asian nation and a tourist hub in Asia has recorded 2,811 coronavirus cases and 48 fatalities.
