Does she have her Thai National ID?  Does she still have her expired Thai passport with whatever type of US visa in it?  Does she now have a US Passport?
To me, the safest approach to finding out how to resolve this issue, contact one of the Thai Consulates in the US (not the Thai embassy.)  Since the Honorary Consulates usually have a US citizen as the Consul General and a good administrative assistant to support the process of visas, passports, etc., that is the person who you should contact.

I had a great administrative assistant in the Atlanta location, who never questioned anything I needed, she just did it.  Don't know if she is still there.  It has been a few years ago.

Here is the url:

I am not sure where you saw that, but remember, the full nomenclature is "Non Immigrant Visa Type "O".  If what you say is in their write-up, then NON IM is just a contraction.  NON IM must covers all Non Immigrant Visa types; i.e. "O-A", "B", "F", "R", etc.  There also is the 90-Day Nonimmigrant Visa.

The ThaiVisa Newsletter just provided a new announcement by Thai Immigration.  You need to note that to find information about a "Retirement Extension of Stay", one needs to first go to "Request to Stay" under "Other Information," then go to "Item #22 - Request to Stay - in the end of your life"!!!!  The "Extension by Marriage [or children] is defined as Item #18.  So, now we know how they consider us old farangs!

[/size]Thai immigration launches newly updated website screenshot Thailandís Immigration Bureau has updated its website with a new design making it easier to use and find out information. The new website, which is available in English and Thai, gives more emphasis to the increasing number of services which are available online, including TM47 and TM30 reporting. It also has a dedicated section of highlighted announcements such as the new QR code queuing system, which is available at immigration division 1. There is also a section for the latest news and services provided by immigration, including what is required for visa extensions and 90 day reporting. The site now also has a handy map feature that enables users to easily locate their nearest immigration office. The updated immigration website can be found at:[size=inherit]

Oh yes, since I thoroughly enjoy Chai Latte (just like most Starbucks have other than here in Thailand,)  you either have to make your own mixture of black tea and spices or do like I do, order from iHerb!

Also, if you hate having to use a Thai produced deodorant, then you can order an American brand from iHerb!

iHerb is not only for Americans and Canadians, an Australian friend, who lives in Thailand, orders vitamins and supplements from iHerb.

Rex, funny you bring that up.  After receiving the 2nd package at least a month before the 1st, I ordered again.  As I was awaiting for this new package, I again ordered another one.  (As you know, iHerb recommends that an order should be close to or less than 50USD so that customs would ignore.)  The first one is caught up in 'never never land' again and the 2nd package is already in Laksi, Bangkok, waiting to be shipped to Khon Kaen and delivered.

It seems that the problem is at the DHL Center (Deutsche Post) in Germany the intermediate stop coming out of California.  (No wonder DHL is no longer an Express Shipping/Delivery service in the US.)

So I guess it is hit or miss.  Maybe you need to get into the right 'zone to get priority' there in Germany.  Or, could it be some packages get sort out and placed in the container going to another country where it sits until someone takes action and sends it back to Germany.

It is a bit frustrating, and iHerb really takes no action to assist, says 'just wait' it'll arrive.  Right now they do say it is the pandemic that causes these unforeseen issues.

The one great thing about iHerb is getting the same brand name at a cost of at least 20-25% less from the States INCLUDING SHIPPING than getting that product here in Thailand.  the mark up here is ridiculous.

So you have to be patient.

I know all reporting had been suspended until later, but I just went online and completed my 90-Day Reporting.  Why?  It will now coincide with submitting my request for my retirement extension.

You have to fill out all the information again, but it went smoothly, approval was immediate.

3 months

Here are too good scientific articles from the UK on the origins of the virus, still confirmed to be in china and could have been as early as October of 2019.  The patient in France WAS THE FIRST INFECTED INDIVIDUAL IN FRANCE, but I doubt if the first in the world from the published scientific studies.

Rex, probably not your fault.  I was told that if the data the I/O had entered into the database, whenever (maybe the first time under that arrival card) may be the issue.  If what you enter is not EXACTLY what they have in the database, it will respond with the error message, but with no explanation.

The PM's COVID-19 Committee has announced certain businesses will be allowed to open starting Sunday, 3 May.  They are embodied in a "news Flash" on KhonKaenLink.  If you go on the link, it will be in Thai.  Windows 10 - Google Chrome will automatically translate as best it can.  Click on the "featured news" tab then "Hot News" tab.  Again, my Google Chrome translates the details.  It is good enough to get the gist of it all.  Or, click on the link below and it will take you directly to that information.  Alcohol sales still forbidden.

It is still the responsibility of each governor to prepare the rules for each area.

Hopefully, we won't get a spike in the infections.

Here is a chart from "Business Today"  Thailand.  Many consider it as providing direction even though it is NOT a government product Table!  It is in Thai, but your wife or GF or other can assist in translating.


The government announced the extension of the Emergency Decree including the curfew through the month of May (01-31.)  This is for the whole country.

Some businesses will be able to open as long as they implement strict social distancing.  These businesses include beauticians (wonder if it includes barber shops), restaurants without air conditioning, malls.  Any additional details, if any, have yet to be announced.

Check out this website (if opened with Google Chrome should be able to translate a portion of it.)  The portion describing the details of the businesses are on a chart and not translatable.

Visas, et al / Additional VISA Extension Approved
« on: April 21, 2020, 10:18:11 PM »
The cabinet approved a second automatic visa extension for foreigners for three more months on Tuesday in a bid to prevent long queues at immigration centers and stem the spread of the coronavirus.

As all the other online websites with daily information on COVID-19; Total Cases, new cases, recovered cases, deaths, etc., here is a website for Thailand.  Since we are here for the duration, this should be of interest.  It does show graphs of the important stuff and also provides pertinent information about each province.  (And it is in English!)
