Thailand's cabinet has accepted three more months of a second mandatory visa extension for foreigners. The extended amnesty is a bid to prevent long queues around the country at immigration centres.
Narumon Pinyosinwat, a spokeswoman for the Thai government, says they want to reduce the spread of coronavirus and prevent foreigners from waiting in line and threatening their own health and the health of immigration officials.
"Foreigners whose visas have expired since 26 March will be allowed to stay until 30 July without being required to apply for an extension." Thailand has recorded 2,811 cases of coronavirus and 48 deaths. Today it announced 189 new cases.
