You can leave without having done the 90 day report and the counter is reset on return. I suspect your office would maybe miss your previous error in 90 days time.  

Will it be cheaper to leave than pay the 2000 baht?

I think it's a safe bet that 2000 is cheaper.

That depends:

But he must have a Multiple-Entry Re-Entry Permit, so that his permission to stay will not be voided by exiting and re-entering Thailand.  Having to buy a Single-Entry (1000 THB)  or Multiple-Entry (3800 THB) to avoid this, is definitely not worth it.

If he has an ME Re-Entry Permit, and he lives close to the border he might consider that (but has to take into account the Visa or border-pass fee).

When the ONLY reason for exiting/re-entering would be avoiding the 2.000 THB fee, it would be better just pay the 2000 THB fine.

Exactly, that was my point.

Come on guys, the fine is Bht 2,000. Why all the drama Queens ?

Can anybody confirm a 90 day fine of over that or "if caught" jail ?

I always just write the due date down on a big callender hanging on the kitchen wall, no need for electronics, only a red pen is needed why complicate matters.

You’ll be ok but you’re going to get hit with a little fine it shouldn’t be more than a few thousand baht. In fact the maximum fine for late reporting is 5,000 baht tops but that’s like after months go by. You’re probably looking at maybe a 2,000 baht fine.

OP - if it were me I’d go to the Immigration Monday. Take your wife with you. Go to 90 day check in line hand them your passport. If they tell you pay X amount pay it and go on with your life....

 

added... wait until they ask you for reason. Tell your reason ....

Oh. Nah, never used one. I doubt they are as good a negotiator as my wife. But thanks for the suggestion.

Agents don't negotiate when doing the 90 days reports for customers. They have more of an agreement with the officer working at the 90 days report desk.

I am reminded of this every day in Thailand, almost never back home.

 

2,000 baht can destroy a person here, change their life, ruin their eating habits for a month, send them into disrepair and act as though they will die any moment.

 

While others spend 2000 on some beers and .....          every night

So, 2,000 Baht fine - total amount? Expensive lesson...

 

jacko45k, not sure what you mean about the "quick trip out of the country"?

 

Hardly an expensive lesson.

If you have a re-entry visa.
