Friend got overstay stamp for reporting 90 days late

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

A friend who has a work permit got an overstay stamp because he reported late his 90 days report of address.

He asked the immigration staff if it wasn't a mistake as it wasn't an overstay but the immigration staff told him it was indeed an overstay to not report your address every 90 days in time.

 

This happened in Jomtien.

 

Is this the new rule ? Whoever doesn't do the 90 days report in time gets an overstay stamp ?

I deleted the photo but it was an overstay stamp.

I'm still trying to figure out overstay when he's obviously on an extension.

Confused I am.

Has he been arrested, sent to IDC or what?

He had his passport checked by his lawyer and the lawyer confirmed it was written overstay in thai. He just paid a fine and was let go.

How long did he "overstay" by? How much was the fine?

 

Does the stamp look something like this:-

It had the 90 days mentioned like that one, but the stamp was a bit different than that one. He took it to his lawyer that said it was an overstay stamp. Immigration officer also told him the same thing.

Right, so post a picture of the stamp. Surely you or your friend can snap a pic of it.

I got the same stamp when I was late on a 90 day report.  (I had just gotten a new annual extension 2 weeks earlier, and mistakenly believed that served as a 90 day report.  Live and learn- you have to leave the country to reset the 90 day clock unless you do a 90 day report).

 

It was very specifically referred to as an "overstay" stamp by the next airline I flew, and by the Immigration Officer the next time I got stamped out of Thailand.

 

Technically, it may not be the same stamp I'd get for an actual overstay, but there sure is a lot of confusion...  And let's face it.   Regardless of what the people here on TVF want to call it, when an IO refers to it as an overstay stamp, that's what it is.

I don't get it.

If you thought that the extension had reset your 90 day clock, why were you doing a 90 day report 2 weeks later?

 

btw, I was under the impression that an annual extension does reset the clock. at least it would seem logical.

Logic didn't figure into it.  At least not the logic I am accustomed to...

 

I did the 90 day report because the lady at my employment agency snapped to the fact that I hadn't done one and offered to go with me to the One Stop clean it up (same lady who had taken me for my extension 2 weeks earlier).  

 

I don't claim to know any answers.  I just know what happened to me.
