What would happen if Immigration can't process the appointments they have given out?


Recommended Posts

This has just been reported - Immigration can't deal with their appointment commitments. Asking people to come back on Monday???
What do you think would happen? Would you even get a queue number if you have booked an afternoon time slot? 
Reports please if you have first hand experience at an immigration office today.

Actually there has been several reports of people getting in and out fairly smoothly in 90 minutes of so at MTT in Bangkok, staff working through lunch break. I think it will be OK for tomorrow.

In the worst case you could travel to another province and get the extension there. Chiang Mai looked quite normal today, could of course look different tomorrow or Friday.

I was under the belief you had to extend your visa at the Immigration office in the province in which you lived.

Spend a night in a hotel (make sure they do a TM30), then you are considered as "living" in the province.

That is only for those on long stay extensions or visas. It is not required for those on visa exempt or tourist visa entries which only requires a one night stay in a hotel for example in order to have a address in the province where you apply.
