Big Joke: Busts company issuing fake visas and 90 day stamps

Ha, every time I go to my local immigration office I see agents openly handing over piles of passports with banknotes in, and I thought all reports and extensions had to be done in person.

Dream on.

Two different entities here.

And Immigration has no intention of going back to basic salaries. 

 

Business is Business    😎

For me nothing to do with Immigration the Agency had manufactured their own stamps.At a recent Expats Meeting an Agent said even after the new rules Agents will still be able to ‘facilitate’ Visas, the stamp in your Passport is a genuine one from Immigration wether it’s legal how you obtained it is another thing.

There are 12000 Expats who receive their Extensions every year from Jomtien, I don’t think every individual one goes too Jomtien ?

Its as simple as chosing a good agent.

Drive to immigration and get your picture taken. All of two minutes.

And then you are on the inside running.

The retirement extension happens.

90 day reports no need to attend. 

Advising address on return not needed. 

The stamps are real.

Re entry stamps work fine too.

Clueless for ten years.

 

As for BJ solving the problem, perhaps but not due to TRP sleuthing.

 

Now Immigration will go after the poor Burman.

 

Ten years.

Visa agents in Laksi in Bangkok have been busted by immigration after they circumvented immigration by issuing fake visas and 90 day stamps.

wow.  amazing they'd print that.

 

....suggests if they'd paid the proper percentage, they'd have gotten authentic stamps.

Doesn’t Big Joke realise that the majority of people from Lao and Cambodia he ‘busts’ and sends back will be back over the border too Thailand the following week.

He needs to be contracted to America, 33 million illegals and counting. 

Closer to 330 million than 33.

Kudos to the BIBs for their crack detective work!... :coffee1:

With that kind of skill they should be able to join Canada's RCMP as all they do is carry illegal migrants bags across the border from the USA.

Years ago I was living in Trang. One day when I returned from Canada I went, can't remember exactly where, but to an Immigration Office nearby and it was closed but a sign was hanging on the door. My wife told me that it said that the Officers were not in but would return in afternoon. We went out shopping for a bottle of Johnny Walker Black as a gift for the "Big Boy" and returned in the afternoon when the office was open. While sitting with the "Big Boy" I casually asked him where they had been? He told me that they were out deporting Burmese back to their country. I asked him how many times he returns the same offenders......he did not reply, he just held up one finger. I must say this was 30 or more years ago and I don't know what is going on now. I do know that if boatloads of migrants would hit shores around Kantang the cops would finger print them and take pictures of them and then tow them back into the sea.

Do you insert banknotes for the IO's into your passports?

No, as mentioned, you only need to go in person if there's a fine to pay. For a regular 90 day report there's no need to pay anything, and anyone (e.g. a messenger) can do it for you.

Can confirm, used line Messenger service before for changwattana 90 day report as i am too lazy to bring it to the thai elite office. Give him 300 baht for the trip and he is usually back in 2 hours

What? 

haven't read (m)any reports of agents arrested or fined for false paperwork, fraudulent applications or brown enveloping.  those agents don't "circumvent" immigration.
