Lucky you. One of the advantages of living in the country.

 

Not so many people on retirement extensions in Phayao I'd guess. That might explain the different service you had from that usually given in Chiang Mai Imm, for example.

That's a great time Rip, glad to see they helped with the photocopies, the CR mob usually send you off to the Transport Dept next door to get any you missed.

I can remember in the very late 80's and early 90's in Phuket. The photocopy concession was always run by immigrations wives just like the water and any snacks. Immigration was also who you paid to send your passport to the border for and extension stamp with the  menu sign  of fees well post on the main wall. They did VERY WELL.. But it was efficient and a major time saver and worth the price. Although you did have to put up with the God like attitude.

Chiang Rai Immigration (Mae Sai Main Office) took a lot of time doing my annual extension as well.  We arrived at 10:40 and we out of the door and back shopping at 11:03.  I kept saying "they will want us to stay until the afternoon".   No such luck.  The wife was shopping at 11:10.  Sigh.

  2 weeks ago, did the retirement extension in about an hour at

Chiang Mai Immigration, after i had the papers checked, and

sat down there was only one number before me, there must

not be that many retirees about, but there were a lot of other

people doing maybe tourist extensions,other kinds of   visa,

last two years have been great, but I am sure it will not last.
