New requirement from the immigration bureau

All visitors at the immigration bureau (Chaeng Wattana Immigration office) are required to present proof of negative ATK Test (taken no more than 3 days) before entering the building. This requirement will be effective until further notice.
Please be informed that you will be required to prepare proof of your ATK test in order to enter Building B (Gate number 2) for your appointment. You will also be asked to fill in a health screening form (which would take approximately 3 minutes).
Without proof of ATK test, you will not be allowed to enter the building, and your appointment will be automatically rejected.

As I understand I need to do ATK Test at the hospital? They will not accept a test that I can do at home?

What is the source of that info. I see nothing on the Division 1 website or their Facebook page.

The info I have seen only requies a form to be completed unless you are working there.;l

Got it from Elite Visa Member Contact Center, was booking an appointment to extend my stay.

This is apparently the sign in front of Chaeng Wattana immigration (source:  The Thaiger website).

That is really incorrect info from Thai Elite. Yours is not the first report of them stating that.

I always expected they would use access to the building as the way to require vaccination. Many of us said as much six or seven months ago. But the testing kit is the new shakedown. How many ambulances do they plan on having on hand to cart off testing people positive? Do you get to go home and get any medicines you take? Or do you just disappear?

There is conflicting information on the banner: You MUST prepare test result + 2 doses certificate, then on the red: Test only needed for certain situations.

 

But I don't want to take the risks, where to do cheap and fast ATK test with certificate (anywhere close to area from Siam to Ekkamai BTS)?

Improvement of measures before entering the building to prevent the spread of COVID-19
From 10 January 2015 onwards
Or until there is a change
Government officials, officials and internal workers please show up
1. Card of Government Officials, Officers, Operators
2. ATK test results that are certified from hospital or photo or actual ATK test kit that specifies name-names, date and time of the test, negative results within 72 hours before entering the building.
The case does not show any evidence. Screening at the entrance of the building.

A off topic post meant to deflect the topic and a expected reply to it have been removed.

This would be a useful form to have in PDF for download to complete along with the rest before going.  I'm due an extension next month, if I haven't found one before I'll see if I can get one to scan and upload.

You do the test before you go, not at the door.

This was at CW?

Hard to tell what the issue was.

How long was the 400k in your account?

Still not clear to me what your issue was.

Your using money in the bank method. 

I also do that and attend CW. 

Why are my extensions a breeze. Never an issue.

In addition I find the bank staff very professional and helpful.

When I update on the day along with small deposit the bank staff helpfully photocopy this last page to show io.

I'm not alone in having non eventful extensions using money in bank method at CW. 

Can you point out which immigration rules were changed that caused your issues. 

I'm not aware of any.
