First of all thank you all for the good advise I got.

I went to Singapore saturday afternoon. The girl who checked me in was very worried for my overstay.

A smile and off I went to get my passport stamped out, I told the officer I have overstay to pay for and he was realy smiling when he checked I had about 1 year. I told him I'm willing to pay no problem.

He told me to go to the room to the left to pay my overstay.

I went there and there was 3 charming girls sitting, first of all when they see I have 1 year overstay they started to joke and smile. (I speak Thai)

They started to tell me this will cost me 200.000 Baht, and I ask them for discount as I have been here a long time. I know already the maximum is 20.000 Baht.

It was a long interwju because I still had 1.5 hr. to the plane departure. The intervju was about my private life in Thailand. If I was married and so on.

After all I paid 20.000 Baht. and got a reciet and asked the girls if I will have any problem to get back in to Thailand, they said: NO PROBLEM.

I went to Singapore, and no problems there, out to have a few cigarettes and check in again on the same plane back to BKK.

Back in BKK a very charming girl stampt me in again for 30 days.

But now I wonder, can they give me more punishment, someone wrote "" 20.000 or two yars in prison or bouht""

What will happen when I get a new passport and have to go to Immigration to get the stamp in my new passport, will they check the old one and find out I had one year overstay or what.

Anyhow, this story ended well and I hope I will not be to lazy in the future so I make my Visa Runs.

Thanks again all of you for very good and quick advise.

No problems. You have paid your fine, the case is closed and nothing more will happen. You have got a receipt for the 20,000 Baht fine.

That's it! Dont' do it again...

Not to worry. You have paid your fine and will be ok now. But the law is there and should be taken heed of as you could be in serious trouble if there is a next time and you are found out or unable to pay any fine.

Sounds good. I got the receipt for the 20.000 Baht. In my last post I forgot to tell you: When I come back to BKK there was no questions about if I have money for 30 days (10.000 baht) as someone wrote earlier.

I was lucky, but I advise all to make their Visa Runs, dont do as I did.

Now I know why Thailand=LOS.

Please may I ask you one question, did they mark your passport as an over-stayer?

I ask because when people are refused entry or deported from many countries they have there passports marked accordingly so you may have problems getting into other countries until you have your passport replacesed.

I wonder why he doesn't bother to get a real visa  :o

Indeed ..... I'm assuming he could have even got himself a double entry tourist visa and saved himself some hassle in the future.. if he doesn't qualify for an "O" of course..

totster :D

His passport will be stamped with the overstay period and the fine.

The money thing is usually only at the land borders AFAIK.

Believe you are talking about the requirement to have 10k per person when entering Thailand and that is for any entry, anywhere. But it is not likely to be checked at airports for most travelers and even at land crossings it is not likely. But there is always the spot check here and there so best to be safe.

Sorry guys I hve to reply in Swedish !

Hur jäkla dum får man vara, stanna längre än man har visa, passet i dåligt skick.

Amäl att du har tappat ditt pass till Svenska ambasaden i Bangkok, Har du tur så finnns du ej med i rullorna, beror på vilken väg du kom in.

Kommer du med ett sådant dåligt pass skulle jag gissa på att du sitter i spjället på Don muang till de har fastställt vem du är, lycka till !
