Isnt that only at the airport IDC ?

I couldn't tell you. I have always attempted to avoid it. What we do know, is that there are people in IDC that have been in there for around 10 years or more. Until everything is paid, fines, flights etc your not ever coming out.

Those long term stayers are there because they dont have travel documents and cannot get them or dont want to leave , rather than not being able to pay .

  I do believe that every day you spend in IDC, 200 Baht gets taken off your overstay fine 

I believe it is only taken off once you have been to court. Fact is, if you don't have money for a flight etc, your Embassy (Mostly) or Thailand will not pay for you. Your stuck

From what I have read the 200 baht is taken off the fine for every day you spend in prison then you move to the IDC.

Overstay not as easy peazy as it used to be.

 

Tell him to stay put where he is, don't get arrested, book him a flight home.  Borrow 20,000 Baht (equivalent) and send to him for potential max fine on the way out of the airport.

It's the borrowing the 20000 baht and flight money that is the issue. His mum simply doesn't have it and isn't in a position to borrow it, there is nobody else he can ask (his father passed away when he was a child). For me I'd just leave him where he is to deal with the consequences of his actions but his poor mum is beside herself with worry. I'm just trying to get a idea of all options to figure out in the circumstances which is the best one/cheapest for his mum because ultimately even if she has to save for months that's where any money will come from.

Tell her to contact the British Embassy. At one time they would issue a secured loan. I don't know if they still offer it or if they will offer it if he isn't yet in IDC.

Thank you, I wasn't expecting them to cover the cost of his flight and him not pay it back. We'll be contacting them tomorrow anyway. I'm not even sure she has the full story from him so I am hoping I can be there when he next makes contact.
