illegally fined on tourist visa, accept as thainess?

Recommended Posts

The police showed up at my residence today and notified the landlord that 5 months ago when i arrived at the apartment they did not report my whereabouts within 24 hours. Initially the police are asking the landlord for the fine of 1600 baht like they should. But they discuss it and the landlord does not want to pay because I am a farang who they assume is rich of course and its no problem for me. The police agree with the landlord I must pay because we have to take care of Thai people. So its either swallow my pride and pay or lose face with landlord that has been nothing but good to me. If i refuse to pay would this be a possible deportation ?

If your landlord didn't notify them ....... how did the police know you were there?

extending a tourist visa at immigration you have to write down your address

There's also the arrival form you fill in at the airport.

 

If they're matching these up and going back in time to check which property owners have registered tourists then they're going to be very busy for the next few years.
