We will not issue visa extension letters for U.S. citizens who wish to stay in Thailand beyond September 26. After that date, normal thirty-day extensions may be available for individuals who can demonstrate compelling reasons for not being able to depart Thailand. Those decisions will be made by Royal Thai Immigration officers on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to the US embassies not helping, the USCIS also hasn't given any exception for US permanent residents regarding the 6-month and 12-month rules, so even if a US permanent residents can stay in a safe country for a long time, the USCIS doesn't let them do so without risking to lose one's green card.
This means that the US pretty much forces citizens and US permanent residents located in countries with no and almost no COVID-19 cases (in this example, Thailand) to come back to the US. Is there any reason to jeopardize the health of these US citizens and US permanent resident located in safer countries, while making the US more densely populated which doesn't help combat the COVID-19 pandemic?
