Lost passport with overstay

Recommended Posts

Get to your Embassy asap, get an emergency passport (cross your fingers you don't need a police report to get one), if successful get to airport and get out of dodge after paying the overstay fine at the airport.

Pretty sure a police report will be needed, it is for almost anything else that is lost / stolen.

Before the British Embassy became a pile of rubble you needed a police report and confirmed details of your travell plans ie flight booked and paid. The journey booked is typed in the ETD and once you complete that journey you will need another ETD for any further journeys if your replacement passport hasn't arrived.

If you use the ETD to fly to UK, your home country, Immigration will keep it when you land and you apply for a new PP in UK.

I had one for a 3 day trip out of Thailand as my replacement PP hadn't arrived and I had a meeting to attend.

You also, if not flying to UK, need to verify your destination country accepts ETD's. Not all countries do.

Photo copies of your passport if you have them help to speed things up.

Thinking that losing your PP and getting an ETD will get around paying for overstay won't work either. It just delays you a couple of days more and you still pay 😆😆

Thai Imm' has these amazing inventions called computers.

Hope it isn't the same guy who thought to get away with it by losing his/her PP lol. Will only add on the trouble and costs.

"what route should he take?" 

 

Home... 

 

I would first talk to the immigration about the options.

Bad idea to talk to Imm' about it.

Much better to 'find' the 'lost' passport and get to the airport, ASAP. 😆

There is a small difference. If THEY (the police or the immigration) find out that you are on overstay then you will have a bigger problem. Better to tell them yourself.

Why cross his fingers?  Getting a Police report is not difficult (at least not in Bangkok).   I've done it twice, once for a stolen passport and once for a lost ATM card.  Both times I went to Thong Lor Police station and both times there were actual UK Police there working with the Thai Police.  It was actually a very pleasant experience.

Please note: If you falsely claimed you have lost a passport it is a big deal. Criminal offence in most countries. Do not do it!

But, in the case of the stolen passport at least, were the Thong Lor cops willing to provide a report in English or only in Thai?
