Ah good, I know that one: none whatsoever, both can be thrown out any time without a second thought.

I got a 1 year extension.  The next time I will go to the Immigration office and communicate with an Immigration officer is in 12 months.  I feel relatively secure that I will do nothing to get me kicked out of the country so I'm going to buy a new pair of cargo shorts at Camel Active which I will wear at the mall but not next year at the Immigration office.

If you feel uncomfortable with long pants, long sleeve shirt, shoes, don't wear them. 

 

I personally don't feel uncomfortable with it, neither with a short, short sleeve shirt and sandals. 

 

I just make a distinction what to wear, where.

Avoiding the immigration as much as possible is indeed a good strategy. Online 90d reports, when they happen to work, decrease the torture a bit. I won't have to visit until 2024, luckily, and by then I should be long gone.

 

In the meanwhile I shall be going commando in my beach shorts with no shirt. Enjoy your penguin acts at the parole office y'all!

Perhaps you should read the following thread as it's all about the differences between a Non O visa and a tourist visa and why this fellow is in detention in Phuket now.  Perhaps you should not act like an expert as anyone with any experience in Thailand knows there is a world of difference between a tourist visa and other types of visas.

I've been in on TR, PE, Non-Imm O and Non-Imm F. Each and every one results in a temporary stay stamp in the passport. That's all that matters: temporary. Anything else is just a rose by another name.

Everything in life is temporary.  A tourist visa is temporary for 30 or 60 or a few days.  A long stay visa is for a year or more - O-A you get 2 years.  I've been in Thailand for 20 years that's a long stay and not a tourist.   I think you are more the tourist type so it is understandable you would judge everyone by yourself.

There's a thing called Permanent Residency. Only three tiers exist, Temporary, PR and Citizen. Anything else around it is just window dressing created by Thais for their amusement.

Methinks this is the only acceptable attire for proper amount of respect towards our parole officers:

Very apt, the only thing missing is "spaceage" for ones ribbons and decorations, show our hosts we are like them in our love of bling!

Ah yes the fruit salad. The veritable army of ex-SAS in Pattaya can pin those on.

I nor Thai Immigration agrees with your arbitrary three option idea.

Tourist Visa. This is a 60-day Tourist Visa to Thailand that can either be a multiple or single entry and can be extended for up to another 30 days by means of a visa run. ...

Non-Immigrant Visa. ...

One Year Non-Immigrant Visa. ...

Marriage Visa and Retirement Visa. ...

Business Visa. ...

Permanent Resident Visa.

Feel free to locate any visa or extension rules there. They are governed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Police, not by laws, and can be changed any time they wish to do so. Hence, window dressing. But if it helps you to sleep better at night, up to you.

Wrong. The Thai Immigration law is listed below.
