Latest Pattaya immigration news

PATTAYA:--In an attempt to reduce queues, Chonburi Immigration at Jomtien has now canopied the whole car park with extra seating and facilities. A few services, such as the 90 day report for long-stay farang and the collection of passports for retirees, can be completed without the need physically to enter the building. It is now compulsory to wear a mask at all times whilst on the premises and temperature checks are taken at the door.

 

Foreigners complaining about overcrowding have been told that local immigration officers, whilst sympathetic, have no power to vary the regulations. Suggestions such as a general amnesty for overstayers, applications for visa extensions online or paying authorized fees by credit card require national authorization and possibly Cabinet approval. Top immigration officials in Bangkok have argued that the needs of national security are paramount.

I've never understood why our members have never been smart enough to carry a flask filled with their spirits of choice.

"These people are already in Thailand, they have been granted entry visas at the time of arriving or have pre-arranged visa given at the home embassy.

This is an EXTENSION of an already approved visa.

WHAT THREAT ARE THEY TO THAILANDS NATIONAL SECURITY?"

 

Thank you so much for setting things straight

Yes. I think they should make their online services more stout. This would not only help now, but prevent overcrowding in the future.

 

That place is always packed. Put basic BS online. Even make applying for visa renewals available online and by mail. Have an online form that can be filled out with all supporting documentation and the office can issue approval or denials. If approved the applicant can send in their passport along with the original documentation (if necessary, they love paper in this country) and the office should be able to return it by courier at the applicants expense. Fees can be paid by Paypal or credit card.

 

Of course all of the above is probably way too logical for Thailand and will never happen.

Instead of reducing the risk to get the virus the ' Top immigration officials in Bangkok ' have decided that it is a threat to national security if they allowed less paperwork for foreigners or an amnesty for overstayers .

But it is no threat to national security when they voluntarily expose the Immigration Officers to potential carriers of the virus on a daily basis ?

Just for some useless papers ... the ' Top immigration officials in Bangkok ' seem to be paranoid and devoided of any common sense .

 

The more paper the more jobs

I change address end of month.

I suppose TM30 has still to be done.

Online is not really an option for me.

Inside or outside?

Any recent experiences?

Can be done by mail?

Or agent ( the one next to Immigration/copy center )?

Thanks.
