You need a whole contingent just to arrest a person who overstayed for a short 14 days.

 

Some people do forget the expiry date by few weeks sometimes so they should be more lenient.

 

What about those reported in the news who overstayed for years? Why didn't they catch those first?

A law that has the same penalty for 1 day as for 365 days
was not written with good intentions.

Did you know that you can buy a watch , any " brand " for 80 baht 

at a market stall ?

 

Your "tip" would have cost you less 555

Have a mobile phone that shows time. there is a clock in the car, one on the computer as well as one on the motorbike and the cable box and so on.

Now you´re really talking about wasting money for no good reason.

You just said, and I quote, "As far as I know, I've only posted that I give them the 100 baht tip after everything is set and ready". This is a bribe. This is illegal. 

 

Jesus wept. 

Now you at least have to start act like a grown up person that understand the different meanings of words. I will explain it for you:

Bribe: Something given, mostly money, out of the reason that the giver expect something in return.

 

Gift: Something given out of free will totally unconnected to anything else without expecting something in return.

So, again show me the posts where I, as you post, admitt ot bribing an Immigration Officer. As another option you can, again, stop spreading information that I´ve have not posted.

No tips. Tips are bribes and bribes are illegal.

Wonder what entry visa he had? and did he have a work permit?

 

Would be a shame if this were to happen to a legitimate tourist on a visa exempt who overstayed by a few days, but most only stay for two to three weeks, it seems it is the ones who "p!$$ take" the visa rules who are being targeted. :clap2:

 

They could not get Al Capone on racketeering or mobster charges but in the end they got for Tax Evasion...

A tip can not be a bribe, as it is given after the work is finished. If somebody give you change back, and you decide not to take it. That can never be a bribe. It´s onlty a refusal of taking back the change that was offered.

Now show me where I have admitted to bribing an Immigration Officer. (Probably you will just continue talking, because that´s the only thing you can)

Irrelevant, due to that the law states same for overstay disregarding what kind of visa or permission to stay you had before overstaying. Also same if a WP was connected to the now ended visa or permission to stay.

Why would it be a shame? Everybody must know that overstay is illegal and something that you shall not engage in. An overstay is same bad if you get caught with 1 day as it is with 285 days.

So, thta was your answer? What relevance does that have to the discussion. This was about the cost of 1900 baht for getting service at an Immigration Office by an Immigration Officer, and then refuse to take the change of 100 baht they offer in return. The only thing you managed to get right is that it involves Immigration Officers.

The picture you are showing is at an entry point in an airport. Are you supposed to buy anything from an officer there? Are you supposed to pay anything for an exempt entry, or to enter on the visa you already have in your passport?

Answer: No, you are not. Therefore the picture is not relevant to the discussion. If you give a tip here, it would be considered as a bribe because they are not hanlding any money at a passport control regarding normal entry by a person.

Still waiting for you to show me what I asked for, or take back you statement of me addmitting to bribing an Immigration Officer.

Immigration are police. Gratuities paid to an officer of the law is a bribe. It’s against the law. 
 

ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law.

Well done guys. A whole contingent of immigration and tourist police to catch a guy on 14 days overstay.
With a bigger contingent you can get those on 1 day overstay.

Surely someone must have reported him. It doesn't sound like he was stopped randomly.

Do they blacklist a 14 day overstay?

Silly of him really, not to apply for an extension.

Actually YES, according to the new rules if the overstayer is arrested in this case is banned for 5 years. I guess it will be up to the judge to decide.
