Renewal. How many inches up from bottom to sign?

Recommended Posts

I remember a couple years back immigration told me to white out all the signatures and sign again on every paper. That time was due to being too low near the bottom. I have just scanned all of my pages with having 4 PP pages on one pieces of paper to save too many copies. Reason is I have too many pages with Thai stamps. Most go down and leave less than an inch (2 cm) of clear white, but what is the norm that CM immigration or other offices need to put their rectangular stamp over your signature? If I'm off I can just see and hear the Mrs. face and voice of not being pleased that the officer will not be pleased. Honestly it is always some little thing every year.

Immigration is not concerned with number of copies AFAIK.  You should have only one double passport page near centered per copy - plenty of room to sign below the print.

I sign all such documents (same at bank) on the actual document wherever there is a space big enough for my full signature (meaning on the copy of the document), not below it on the white space / border.

 

Why, years back an Imm. officer told me this is the preferred method / place to sign then it's more specifically 'attached' to the document in question.

 

I always do it like this, never been queried.

Been signing in space below for several decades and never had immigration question it at any office in Bangkok.

Do they understand ‘inches’ or can a phone be used for that too???

Yes, but as lopburi3 said he thinks it should only be 1 double passport page per copy. I have 2 double per sheet so this is where I was asking about the space. I have had multiple page copies on one sheet before, but it is always different per IO. This time I just did not space them closer away from the bottom.

 

So you are saying it can be directly smack on the copied portion of the stamps? I remember I have done the same thing, but also remember onetime they wanted it on the white. Last year it was signing all in black in and had to do it again.

our immigration office  stamp all the photo copies for my yearly extension and you have to sign inside the stamp on the line provided, much easier

Yes same. But in the past the IO would place their stamp over the pre-signed signature and I cannot remember if it was needed to really have a clear bottom as now I have copied 4 pages on to the paper.

I believe I heard that this year they want us to sign on the edge...no not the edge of the paper...on the laser thin edge...😳

 

Just kidding...don't go getting all huffy...😉

No I'm not suggesting sign over the top of actual stamps, in fact I quote from below which is actually a cut and paste of my post:

To be clear I mean sign in a space that free of typing or stamps.

 

I have submitted scans / copy documents which have 2 pp pages on one page but no more than 2, for 3 plus decades, never been queried.

I understand what you are saying. I will do it the same again this year which is identical to what you were saying. As long as signature and their rectangular IO stamp does not fall on the writing of the Thai PP stamp then should be good to go. There is enough room. thank you.

I had to resign a few pages at CM this year because I pre signed too large and it exceeded the stamp size. She didn’t seem to care as to where the signature was.

That’s good to hear. Will take some liquid paper with me again.

At Jomtien, they want 1 image per page, period. You sign directly below the image, whether that ends up being halfway down the page or 3/4s or whatever.

I tried to save paper by doing 2 sided copies - ended up wasting paper as I had to redo them so that each scanned image was on a separate page.

I've asked (in the past) where they wanted me to sign (thinking they might want it somewhere on the scanned image, especially if the image has a signature on it so that the 2 could be easily compared) and they've always pointed to directly below the image. (It's the same thing at the bank and pretty much every where else I've gone where I've had to submit photocopies - they've all wanted the signature directly below the image.)

 

Been doing it that way for a couple few years now and never have a problem.

But as we already know (or should by now) - every Immigration office has its own set of rules and procedures and preferences so whatever one person experiences at one office won't necessarily be the same as what someone else will experience at a different office. Sometimes it won't even be the same experience for 2 people at the same office if they each interact with a different IO.
