Well if it's original 45 and then 45 extended that's 90, but if it's 45 and 30 that's 75 or if it's still 30 VE will it be plus 45 or will it be or not be plus 30?

90 days exempt, add 500 baht entry fee auto to tickets. Sames time and makes money.

 

Far too much common sense 

Common sense and the unelected PM and his soldiers are not compatable.

Then again perhaps the OP on here didn't rely on the correct questions being asked so what we get is nothing like the facts that should be reported so we don't really get a clear picture of what is meant by the Thai Government.

Thats a 50% increase. Will all other visas be extended by 50%? I am coming on the 3 month retirement visa if this applies to all I would be allowed to stay for 4.5 months

What about Visa Exempt?

A Tourist Visa is already 60 days so I expect that is what they really mean... don't see them shortening TV.

extending the length of stay for tourist visas and visa on arrival (VOA) to a maximum of 45 days.

Does the 45 day visa free entry qualify for a further 30 day extension or is the Maximum limited to the initial 45 days?

There is no such thing as a retirement visa.  You have probably got a Non-O or a Non-OA visa which is valid for three months.

 

Provided you can meet all the requirements you can then get an extension for one year based on retirement.

Do you want 40 million tourists?????

 

Make it six months, the entire high season.    Limited special PRO-MO-TION!!!!!!

 

Maybe have a bank statement (likely fraudulent for 20%) for 30,000 per month. or 20,000...whatever...

 

no masks.    Pattaya 24/7.  

 

Full moon parties every night.................throw up some fake moon .  nobody looks anyhow, falang already on bottle number 20

Brazilian citizens receive 90 days so why not make it 90 days . Less tourists arriving so let them stay longer .

An O-A is valid for a year.

this is what it says on another site that makes much more sense..

 

The Tourist Authority of Thailand is pressurizing the government to allow most vacationing foreigners to visit Thailand for up to three months without obtaining a visa from their local Thai embassy abroad. Visitors from 64 countries (including Brits, Russians, Australians, Americans and most mainland Europeans) are already visa-exempt. They obtain 30 days free-of-charge on arrival which can be extended for a further month at Thai immigration on payment of 1,900 baht. If the Thai Cabinet, as expected, accepts the proposal, these periods would become 45-plus-45 days for a total of three months.

This would be a positive move that benefits everyone imo.  I would also like to see the 60 day visa changed to 90.

I stand corrected.  I have never had a Non-OA only a Non-O.
