Can I extend my 60 tourist visa in Thailand?

Q: I am a French national currently staying in Phuket on my vacation. Is there a way I can extend my 60-day tourist visa as I wish to stay longer in Thailand?

You have to visit the Thai immigration office in Phuket and apply for extension before your visa expires. Your visa can be extended for 30 days. The visa fee is around 1900 Baht. If you are older than 50 years old then you can also consider applying for a Retirement Visa or if you have a Thai wife then you can also apply for a Marriage Visa at a Thai embassy and extend the visa in Thailand for 12 months at Thai immigration.
