Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is concerned that foreigners seeking visa extensions are gathering in their hundreds at Immigration offices each day, said the Foreign Affairs Ministry on Wednesday (April 1).

Deputy ministry spokesman Natapanu Nopakun said the cabinet has responded with a move to grant automatic renewal of tourist visas for visitors who arrived in Thailand after March 1.

The proposal was approved by the cabinet on Tuesday (March 31) and is set to be officially announced.

People who hold other types of visa still need to go visit the Immigration office for extensions.
