If you meet the requirements, those of you planning a long stay in Thailand might want to look into this. The visa is good for a 270 day stay in Thailand.

CCSA approves extension of Special Tourist Visa scheme until next October

The Special Tourist Visa scheme that allows tourists to stay up to 270 days in Thailand will be extended from 1st October this year until the end of September next year, reported Manager.

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin said that 5,609 STV tourists had already spent 1.243 billion baht in Thailand.

Most had stayed 90 days. Some 90% had renewed for a second spell of 90 days and 60% of the original number had extended for a third spell of ninety days.

Whether those would be able to continue renewing indefinitely or whether the year extension referred to new applicants was not made clear in the Manager story.

Taweesin spoke of the people who had visited Thailand on yachts saying that 50 more vessels are booked to come to Thailand.

Earlier 271 people on yachts had reportedly spent 291 million baht.

Taweesin said that Monday's CCSA meeting chaired by PM Prayuth Chan-ocha also called on the DES Ministry to simplify online visa applications and procedures to attract more tourists.

The doctor thanked the public for their efforts in the pandemic.
