First home visit advice please.

Recommended Posts

 

I completed the first stage of my marriage extension this week and have been informed that we will receive a visit from immigration officers. We’ve not been given a date or time so, as I understand it, they will just turn up without so much as a phone call to confirm that we are actually at home.

 

Can anybody tell me what to expect from this visit?

 

How long does it last? How many of them are there likely to be? What do they actually do?

 

I’d be grateful for any advice on how to “welcome” them into our humble abode.

They will not just turn up and expect you to be at home. They will contact you to sure somebody is at home.

Hard to predict what they want or do when the arrive.

It is is just a check that you and your wife are living together and you are really living at the address used. It could just be photo outside the house of you and your wife together.

Expect them to confirm your claim.

Clean the house. Fresh coffee and cookies baking would be nice.

Perhaps a brown envelope near the cookie jar would not be out of place......seriously though it will pass without any problems I,m sure :thumbsup:

We had our first visit three weeks ago....they called first to agree a time, showed up on time, took pictures outside the house and inside, has a quick visual of the main rooms, some polite chit chat, in and out in under 15 mins, nice guys and they have a job to do.

Same when they visited us. Pethchaburi Imm.

Like Joe stated, they will call before arriving and what they require can differ.

In my case a photo of you in front of your house number, a quick check of your passport and ask you to sign a form ( verifying they came for their boss ) was all that was required. 2 officers came in uniform and immigration pickup and only entered the lounge area when offered to do so .

 

Be polite and offer water like you would with any visitors, nothing more is required.

 

Of course there are always reports that they want to see the whole house or take photos in the marital bedroom, how true these are I don’t know.

I'm sure there's no set routine for a home visit. Officers from Surin Immigration called before arrival. The toured our home, comparing the pictures we submitted to the interior. They also requested that a neighbor be a witness. The 2 officers took pictures of each other standing with use and the neighbor. We sat at the kitchen table, offered them a glass of Pepsi, answered some questions and they left.
