Visa

After miscalculating our 60 day Thai visa by one day (61) can anyone advise on what we will need to do to cover the one extra day?

Many thanks

Hi,

There is an extension of stay application that you can submit (with fee due) that if granted, wil cover you for your overstay. The process is pretty straight forward.

You can apply at your closest office of the Immugration Deparrment.

Do remember that anytime you are "out of status" there are potential risks as you just aren't at that point in time, compliant with entry and immigration statues.

Travel Safe,

We know about the 30 day extension but we wondered if there was a lower cost for just one day extension as we have pre-booked flights?

Hi,

Once inside Thailand unless you leave and re-enter under a new visa or visa waiver situation, there are no other alternatives for extending a tourist visa.

Otter classes of Thai visas have some additional options, but these don't apply to a tourist visa classification.

There is no one day extensions !! Do as Gobi suggests.

Take a little trip to Cambodia two weeks before you're due to fly home, and come back to Thailand on a 15 day exemption.

The other option is to pay the one day overstay fine, at the airport, when you leave Thailand. Although legaly that would be THB 500.- practically one day overstay (at least in the past) is given as a grace periode without charge.
