No entry! Foreign tourist turned back at Suvarnabhumi for not having a free page in his passport

Recommended Posts

I have gone thru 2 passports in 5 years and never knew of this rule. 

Some places stamp anywhere in the passport which makes it hard to find sometimes.

…For a Saudi passport holder applying for Visa on Arrival, my reading of the rules is it's only 30 days.

Have you got a link to the place where you read this?

I believe the requirement, officially, is 4 unused pages to enter Thailand. That’s what the airlines have told me at check in.

sadly he did not use the same airlines as you but good on the ones who pointed out the criteria for entry

I was at immagration once and this Chinese bloke had no room in his passport. The Imm. people tried their best. I was watching. Going through the pages showing this person that the stamp just wouldn't fit. He was incredulous. Got sick of listening to his Chinese righteousness and went out for a cig. There was his BMW parked where it shouldn't be blocking someone from getting out. What a complete .......

this is news ? What Thai Immigration should do ? They not stamp on a piece of paper and the guy should do some homework. Do you think Saudi Arabia would let you in when passport is full ?. Most likely he got denied entry and send back. 

 

 

When officers are not 100% idiots they find a 4cm space in any full passport! Of course!

Drives a Beemer, too stingy to buy new passport, his type also seem to have a hard time paying ten baht for parking, or walk more than eight steps to their final destination. and will inconvenience an ambulance if it means they might miss out on whatever they fear they're missing out on. A right Berk!

Stamps, such a lovely memory. Haven't gotten one outside Thailand since I went to Maldives, mostly electronic now in 1st world. Too bad though, used to be nice to have all sorts of stamps.

As a TEFLR you are a special case.  They have to work in room for your 3 monthly visa runs.

It’s just a name, Mr/Ms Slip. And please, have some respect for the many English teachers who do a wonderful job in this beautiful country.

i dont think so there are no space in the passport.

i guess some pages are half used or just a stamp in one page.

so they can very well put a stamp if they wanted.

but man, why not getting a new passport if it current one is like full??
