Foreigners residing in the kingdom have from now until the end of the year to get their permanent residency applications started.

The Immigration Bureau said in a document countersigned by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha that the window started on September 19th and will last until Friday December 28th.

Decisions on applications will take at least 300 days.

The applications are limited to 100 persons per nationality. Nationalities that have several states that make up their nationality – such as the UK – are counted as one country.

Some 50 stateless people will also be considered.
