EXPAT FOCUS – We wish that it were true, but claims that tourist driving privileges have been extended until June 1, 2021, are just that, claims.
The confusion may have arisen from the announcement made by the MOPT on March 5, extending for six months, for citizens and residents (with their DIMEX), to homologate or renew their foreign driver’s license. This did not apply to tourists.
There are a lot of people wondering if and when the MOPT will make an announcement.
We will advise if and when we hear anything from MOPT.
There are a lot of foreigners in the country that benefited from the automatic extension by immigration to be able to remain in the country legally until June 1, 2021. See: Immigration issues resolution extending “tourist” visas
