Foreigners will get another two month’s reprieve from Thailand’s immigration laws after the cabinet today approved an extension to requirements .

Days before the current amnesty expires July 31, the cabinet’s approval today essentially resets the clock for foreign nationals until Sept. 26.

The mandatory 90-day reporting requirement for foreign residents is also suspended, government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said.

The amnesty was put in place in April as the borders were sealed and to prevent crowding at immigration centers. Visas have been automatically extended since.
