The only extension available is in a detention centre if he gets arrested.

Pay the fine at the airport ….. on the way out.

I read on a thailand travel essentials website that he was able to do it in the embassy but he doesn’t want to go there for them to turn him away.. he wanted to stay in Thailand so will he have to potentially leave the country and head back in ?

he is going to pay his fine tomorrow where is best to go immigration or the airport?

go to the airport with all the cash and hope you don't get stopped for some other reason before you get there.

if he goes to a immigration office he stands the chance of getting arrested and placed in detention.

getting transfered to BKK from where ever he is arrested can sometimes take a day or two. you don't want that.

 

i can't answer the rest. sorry.

How can you miscalculate by 19 days something that is stamped clearly in your passport ? 

Who said it was miscalculated? Others have overstayed for years, for various reasons. We don't know why the OP's friend overstayed and it also doesn't really matter (you don't get the fine waived if you have a good reason) - what matters is how it's resolved.

Thailand would not have an embassy in Thailand, no countries do. He better behave well to avoid the police then go to the airport and leave after paying the fine.

If he is looking to return directly he needs to think carefully about where he books his flight to....Laos airlines are refusing people with overstay stamps so while the friendship bridge would have been the easiest to re-enter back to Thailand that is now probably ruled out. Depending on how many visas he has in his passport (and the overstay stamp) should guide him to look towards the right consulate to obtain a SETV and return by land border if possible with 20k in cash.

Many Thai Travel Websites are extremely good. By that I mean extremely good at giving you information that is either out-dated and only wrong 99% of the time.

Probably a lot of info on them written by backpackers who were here for 10 days and spent most of those 10 days

p-ssed and stoned.
