Need help from fellow cruisers

Recommended Posts

We came to Samui from Malaysia but now have to leave the boat and return home for medical treatment.  I read today of a 20000baht mandatory bond and horror stories of the hoops you must jump. Does anyone know what we have to do? Also is it possible to extend the temporary import permit for the boat?

Is your question about:

 

a. Immigration procedures for yourself, or

 

b. Customs procedures for your boat, or

 

c. Both a and b

Very unusual situation. I mean you "both have to return for medical treatment". Return where? Can't perhaps one of you seek medical treatment in Thailand. It has good medical facilities. So what's the plan? ....nick off to another country and leave boat Thailand. Don't think that's a plan

Not sure where this topic belongs. I have moved it to the travel forum since it is not visa related.

Where is "home"? Malaysia? Is that where the boat is normally kept?

 

It might be simplest for you to fly home and get a friend to sail the boat back for you. Especially if you dont really know if or when you will be coming back here again.

If you had gone to Phuket I think it would have been easier for

you to get some clarity re your situation.

The larger marinas in Phuket have people with experience in such matters.

 

Foreign registered vessel - long or short time transits
