Furthermore, before travelling, passengers must fill out the Public Health Passenger Locator Form (PLF) in all situations described on it.

Visa for Thailand

On September 30, 2020, the Thai Government officially approved a grace period until October 31, 2020 for persons in Thailand in temporary visa status (and this for all visa types) to depart the country. This measure was published in the Royal Thai Gazette. The grace period further extends the automatic visa extension that was first announced in late March due to Covid-related travel difficulties.

According to information on the website of the Thai Immigration, it was further possible to extend any visa with 60 days providing one applied before 1/11/2020.

 

The Embassy of Belgium will not issue any support letters for visa extensions. 

 

For more information about applying for Thai visa extensions, please visit www.immigration.go.th or contact a Thai Immigration Bureau.
