Overstay.

Recommended Posts

How do I do to get an easy way out of my overstay? I have about 11 months overstay.

Is there any laywer who can make it for me and what will it cost me?

What should I tell the Embassy if I want a new passport?

What will I get in punishment for this??

Thanks in advance for answers.

Fly out of the country to Singapore is the best way and if you plan to come back wait a couple of days. Don't take any busses to any borders fly out.

The fine is 20,000 Baht plus your trip expenses.

Realthaiperson is correct.

You will get a 20,000 Baht fine.

Best to fly out, however no problem to fly back into Thailand the same day.

You can exit at airport or any border point in Thailand. Bring 20K and just smile. If the boys in brown get you before the border you are in deep trouble.

If the OP had a pre booked flight ticket and was caught, would there be leniency.. due to the fact that he was in fact intending to leave....albeit 11 months too late... ?

My passpot is in bad condition, and the page with the photo is more or less separeted from the rest. Will this be a problem to get in to Singapore?

If you have arrived at the border/airport the Immigration will not make problems unless you do. Pay and smile. Drive careful to your point of exit.

Singapore Immigration is a bit harder then Thai Immigration for example. What nationality are you?

The only problem I see for an overstay like that, is they will see on arrival back into Thailand a very long overstay in the passport and they can request to see a ticket to a forwarding country.

Also I can only assume the long overstay was for a lack of funds and now they may ask to see I think it is no less than 10,000Baht on arrival into Thailand. I don’t think they are enforcing it but hey what a great time to start when they see a previous 11 month overstay

It is just better to wait a day at the least. If there was no overstay go and come back in the same day is not a problem.

Pay and smile. Drive careful to your point of exit.

100% correct heed this warning. The only point in this whole procedure you are safe is when you are sitting in the airport Immigration paying your fine with your departure ticket in your hand.

here is a quote:

If you overstay by one day, there is no charge. After that, it's 200B per day, so 2 days is a 400B fine, 3 days 600B etc...

:D

Therefore 11 months x30 days (assuming) x 200 Baht per day leaves a possible fine of (11x30x200 = 66,000 baht)

That is a lot more than the 20,000 baht some people are talking about on this thread.

It will be hard to explain to the Thai immigration that you "forgot" to leave.

They may be lenient, or they may not. When they ask you why you didn't leave, tell them you were so happy in Thailand and liked the thai people so much, you couldn't leave. They will know that is b******t, but it might sound good to them.

At roughly 40 baht to one U.S. dollar it comes to about 1500 dollars.

Hope it works out ok for you, but expect to pay.

If you can pay and leave, you may not be punished further. Or, depending on the immigration official and how he/she feels that day, you could be blacklisted.

ONCE YOU LEAVE, it might be wise to accidentally lose your passport. I would never advise that however. But it has been done before by others (including me). You take your chances with that action. It could work out well or it might not work well. With computerised records these days, who knows what will happen. If you get listed in the computer database as a troublemaker/overstay/lost passport person, it won't go well for you later on. Computers don't forget. However, computer records are prone to mistakes/errors/accidental erasures. You never know what will happen.

For god's sake, when you do leave, don't be loud, obnoxious, arrogant, or just generally s****** in your attitude. You do not want to end up in immigration jail.

And under no circumstances say you worked in Thailand to earn money.

Good Luck

:D

The 20,000 baht maximum fine is absolutely correct.
