Is Covid Insurance Required for Regular Extension of TV or STV?


Recommended Posts

Planning on applying for a STV soon.  I imagine the topic has been discussed previously but couldn't find an easy answer. 

 

What's the cheapest insurance through a Thai company that meets requirements?

 

In-patient:  bt400,000

Out-patient:  bt40,000

Covid coverage of no less than usd100,000

Have you tried this site: https://longstay.tgia.org/

I suggest you contact the embassy you will be applying to be sure what the insurance requirements are. Some are wanting medical insurance the covers $100,000 that covers covid19 as well.

The required covid insurance now is $50,000.

They will want the insurance proof to do the 90 day extension of a STV entry.

It is not needed for a standard 30 day tourist visa entry extension.

That site doesn't mention insurance for a regular 60 day TV.  Any reason for that?  I might end up going that route to simplify life.

For a standard tourist visa you cooled look here for covid 19 insurance. https://covid19.tgia.org/

The STV requires more insurance than the standard one.

Thanks for that Joe.

 

So if I arrive with only 90 days insurance and decide to extend stay can I purchase additional insurance while in Thailand or does it have to be done beforehand?

For the STV that should be allowed when you apply for it.

If you enter on a STV and complete your initial 90 days, can you then apply for a 60 day Covid extension (if available)?     or is your only option to apply for a 90 day STV extension?

You would have to do the 90 day extensions before you could apply for a 60 day covid 19 extension.

I applied for STV via Thai Embassy in London and was asked by email to separately produce $50,000 of insurance.  I sent a copy of my standard travel insurance (issued by Post Office) which covered my intended six month stay with cover for £2,000,000.  I stated in my response email that this equated to some $2,600,000 - and I received my STV a day or so later.

 

I was expecting to have to purchase a separate Thai policy but it was not required in my case.  There was no specific mention of Covid cover on the document, merely £2,000,000 of medical cover.

 

The same document was also accepted for the Thailand Pass.
