I only saw one shop 'across the road' that day which is Tian, and they charge 3 baht per copy.

 

I couldn't see any other shops around.

They are one and the same, there is only that one shop.

It's very normal for an international airport to have some place where incoming plant materials are inspected.  This is how they keep foreign pests from getting established in their area.  

 

We had a nursery/greenhouse business in the U.S. and sometimes imported plants, so it became a familiar routine for me to go to the U.S.D.A. facility at the Detroit Metro airport to claim nursery stock we'd bought. 

 

One time they found some stock was infested with golden slugs in the soil around the roots -- not native to Michigan and the U.S.D.A. wanted to destroy the shipment.  Since they were plant varieties we really wanted to use as stock plants for propagation, we had quite the negotiation, involving pest control professors at Michigan State University about how the problem could be treated so that we could keep the plants.  It involved driving to Ohio to purchase a pesticide that couldn't be sold in Michigan, so there had to be several meetings to decide if it was OK for us to use it in Michigan. 

 

The plants quarantine facility at the Chiang Mai airport is under an gov't department that isn't going to respond to pressure from the Immigration dept to give up their building.

The copy shop in the basement of Kad Suan Kaew charges just 1 baht a copy.  Get yourself organized in advance to save big baht!

Or buy yourself a good ink jet printer, I highly recommend the Canon G2000, networkable, hi quality, full color, have had mine for about two years, prints tons of great color prints and documents as well as passports and TM7s, TM47s, whatever... My wife has run through several reams of paper from her computer in the other room and we've had to refill the ink only a little while back. For four years prior to that I had a cheaper Canon with the ink wells on the outside, lots of messy problems, but this G2000 has never dried out or required a lick of maintenance. Passports and other docs I often spruce up with Photoshop and store in PDF files.

Absolutely!  But I was surprised, though not mortified, that they "sell" Thai Immigration forms.

I see a lot of comments about where to go to get copies made to turn into immigration.  Have any of you people ever wondered what on earth CM Immigration does with all these important copies?  They must be important or why else do these people want them.

 

Try to imagine all the foreigners that are required to report to immigration daily and the reams of paper work that immigration collects during the course of just one day not to mention yearly.  I find it mind boggling.  Are they trying to eradicate trees, lol.  Immigration would have to have several warehouses just to store the countless paper copies they collect yearly.
