Immigration open Thursday , January 16th?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to be safe and ask if immigration is open Thursday or not, as my neighbor says it's a National Holiday and everyone is off. My stamp expires tomorrow. Please let me know. Thanks.

The 16th is not a official Thai holiday. Immigration and other government offices along with banks will be open.

For official holidays, go check the Bank of Thailand website.

That does not always show all the holidays. Not all holidays are bank holidays.

There is also a pinned topic on the general forum that lists all the holidays.

There is also a link to download the list in that topic.

Since when has Christmas Day been a public holiday in Thailand? Pretty sure the Royal Ploughing Ceremony isn't a holiday, too.  Ditto Chinese New Year. 

 

Not the most reliable of sources.

They will certainly be closed on the 10th of February. Immigration does not always look at the calendar when the do reporting dates.

From the list of holidays for 2020. 10 February (Monday) Substitute For Makha Bucha Day  It is also a bank holiday.

IT IS TEACHERS day....which means ALL teachers ARE ON HOLIDAY.....not Goverment workers...

Not all teachers are off and not all schools are closed.

Strangely, I know dozens of teachers who are not off on "Teachers Day" and yet their schools closed for Royal Ploughing Day.

I'm pretty sure they are closed on Chinese New Year on the 25th, it is on a Saturday 😉

 

But you are right, this is not a reliable source. Just a photo from an calendar.

Following up the post before.

 

AND:

Not just on the (bank)holidays the immigration is closed, they can be closed at any time if they want.

Last year I was there at CW on 4th of November, they were closed. Something with a conference where all the immigration bosses gathered.

 

 

 

           The best two sources and compare them are: bank holidays and the website of immigration in your region.

 

 

(Although regarding the website, it's in a developing process all the time one day it works and the next day all broken links. The best information you will get from the Thai language pages..)

When I go to the Bangkok site of Immigration, I can just see a announcement shortly before the ''new'' webpages loads.

This screen shows when accessing bangkok.immigration.go.th

for a short moment before redirecting to the 'new' site

with old contents.
