Blocked to extend tourist stamp

Recommended Posts

No roasting from me!

 

Trying to enter visa exempt is the worst thing you could have done. As you surmised, staying cool under the abuse was essential, and I am glad it got you through.

 

You will be able to get your extension.

 

If at all possible, you should apply for a non immigrant O visa. It should not be too hard getting one to visit your son. With a Non O, it is usually not a problem entering Thailand.

 

Getting tourist visas at many consulates in the region is likely to be a problem. Do not think Vientiane or Savannakhet are good options now, and Phnom Penh has been problematic for some time.

 

With a tourist visa, you might be OK entering by air, with a tourist visa but entering at a land crossing in that case would be better.

Thanks for the reply, you mention I will be able to get the extension as I normally do, she specificly said I was not allowed too, shes wrote something wierd below the entry stamp in Thai, are you saying like a few of my friends in Thailand have also said I will be able to get an extension its just talk? or do you think she did block me from being able to get it? I guess only one way to find out right heh

 

I am actually going to get the none O in the UK as I know the lady in the Thai Embassy so called her, she said she would have one almost waiting for me as my mum is able to do the majority of the paper work for me and has a copy of my sons birth cert etc, also she mentioned its easier in Hull as I do not need the Thai bank account like I would in Cambodia, infact I have tried to get a Thai bank account twice now and they always reject me, one for not having a proper visa I think the other time was another reason... its silly you need a thai bank account to get a none o, yet you cant get a Thai bank account without a visa right? anyway I planned to go back to the UK with my son for my brothers wedding so it just makes sense to get it done in the UK I am sure its far easier. Sorry to babble on but I guess my main question is just wondering if I can extend or if she has blocked that possibility? I mean why would she lie? maybe just to annoy me or make my life difficult but like I say if she is bluffing me then I would go early to extend say this Monday just so i am not doing it last minute and then being rejected if that makes sense, thanks alot

Someone should get this kind of treatment on video and publish it far and wide on the internet.

 

I wonder if I can buy a tiny wireless video camera that can be hidden inside a pair of glasses, etc and record onto a phone - something like this would be perfect to expose all sorts of crazy stuff that goes on.  I'm going to buy one of these if I can find it.

Sounds like a good idea, but probably illegal. I took two photos with my phone at the waiting room of Hong Kong Immigration one time, being miffed that they gave my girlfriend a grilling for entering HK. I was immediately confronted by a senior officer, who demanded that I delete the pics on the spot.

You could just record the audio, of course not as nice as a video, but easy to record. Just run an audio recorder app, this keeps recording even if you turn off the screen of the phone (at least on Android). Just hold the phone in your hand or lay it down on the table.

 

@Op:

I would go to an immigration office and have them check what they have in their computer about you. Probably nothing, and it won't be a problem to get the extension.

Can be very unpleasant as they hard to deal with due to poor mental attitude and no sensible reasoning or deduction .

I also had a bad experience with a Tom in the Samsung service centre in Pattaya

Maybe a relative 555 , but on serious note the higher ranking tom at don muang is quite a nasty character.

I work for company doing IT equipment and spent a few days in that airport and it quite a drastic change to what was even 18 months ago .
I think a jew would of had better treatment with fake documents trying exit germany in 1942 .

Need to get it going off on video placed on social media to embarrass Thailand. Problem solved, inactive post filled.
