So anyone as a repeat come again traveling person who spent more than 15 days here prior is going to be looked at as working? OMG!

 

Pretty easy to get a 3x Tourist visa in Xiamen, with each one extendable.

This should be a wake up call along with a couple of other threads about refusal on this forum, that the days of multiple tourist visa extensions is ending. Staying long term on tourist visa just became more risky.

No ill intent to anyone, it just stating the evidence so far. 

But regarding Chinese we have to take into account that they might have an incentive to work here illegally, because they can earn at least the same, maybe more, than in China. For people coming from the wealthy countries this is just not the case.

On the other hand, if immigration really thinks "long time in Thailand = working in Thailand", then many people who stay here on other visas/extensions have to worry as well. Just because somebody is staying in Thailand on a marriage or retirement extension does not make him exempt from the suspicion on working in Thailand. The first step would probably be to scrap the 400k/800k in the bank to get an extension (this might be money earned illegally in Thailand), and allow only income coming from abroad (or income earned legally in Thailand in case of marriage).

Hope Big Odious keeps up the good work on the Chinese and gives the westerners a break for a change🤔 

Well, but if he is succesful, guess who will be next?

The translation from Thaivisa is wrong. I always wonder if Thaivisa just uses Google translate instead of employing somebody who could deliver a proper translation.

This sentence is made up from Thaivisa:

 

 

 

The Thai article just says that the Chinese man stayed a long time in Thailand before and did not meet the criteria to be allowed entry into Thailand. They suspect that he is working because he spent more time in Thailand than what would be reasonable for a tourist.

Then below this they mention which laws cover this, and also which law / rules cover the visa on arrival which he used, and here they basically say that a visa on arrival allows a stay of 15 days.

 

A case of cheap translation (Google Translate, which is a joke!) and bad journalism then...

If they want to get rid off younger people, working from their computers, it is very easy.

Just introduce a new rule that those who already had a few ED visas before get no more. This way I and many people can plan and make the move to Vietnam, Cambodia or the Philippines.

Seriously? I just spent four weeks travelling in New Zealand, with no intention to work there. All the money I have been spending recently travelling in friendlier places like Australia, Vietnam, etc., is lost income for Thailand...

It seems to becoming more familiar hearing it either by TV posters and now by them posting it on the news that they caught the Chinese devil who they think is trying to work and turned him away. They can profile you anyway they want and it doesn't matter if you have a visa.

Thanks for pointing this out. I have mentioned this sort of thing several times before but it seems no consideration is given to the loss of translation by some members here before they make their judgement.

It would seem that most only read the headline before their blood pressure surges and they start typing furiously. If there's any refutation of anything in the body of the article, or below the line it goes unnoticed.

Maybe you should send a message to Thai immigration. I think they also read this forum.

The article clearly stated the Chinese person had stayed "a long time in the past."

Thailand has every right, as does every other country to deny entry to those clearly using tourist visas for extended residency.

Oh my, that's a nice high horse. Where did you get it?

Depends how many times they have been here and for how long. Or they check: Bali/Fiji/Thailand/Bali Fiji etc...

It's also kind of a hidden economy, due to the language and social behaviour. Chinese usually move around in groups, it'd often be difficult to tell if some of them are working or not.
