Need a re-entry permit? Now you can apply online. File photo.

BANGKOK: -- Good times ahead for expats in Bangkok who need a re-entry permit. The Immigration Bureau has recently launched its online queue for obtaining a re-entry permit, but you need to apply on the web two days in advance.

You can now schedule an appointment date and time via Thai Immigration's website at http://bangkok.immigration.go.th. You simply fill in and submit the form TM.8 online and receive a reservation code.

Here is the direct link for online application: http://113.53.236.68...ry_tran_iu.aspx

On your scheduled time and date you just take your passport and reservation code, pay the fee 1,000 Baht for a single re-entry permit (or 3,800 Baht for a multiple re-entry permit) at the "Counter Service for Re-entry Permit Queue Online". You will be presented with a pre-filled in TM.8 form and get your photo taken.

Immigration Bureau says the whole process will take less than 5 minutes of your time.

We guess that the online queue system will be much appreciated in the expat community.

You can make an online appointment, so you get quicker service then just showing up and wait your turn and don't have to fill in a form there or even take passport photo's with you. This way it is supposed to be only 5 minutes of time to get your re-entry permit.

I take this is for Bangkok issued "extention of stay" only. Any news when this service will be available for the provinces

Yes, Bangkok only.

Immigration seems to be experimenting with online applications, like in CM and now this in BKK. Who nows about the provinces in the future.

They used to have such a counter at the airport, but for some reason, they closed it down!

They have re-opend the airport counter, but only between 06:00 and 24:00 hours and you can only get a re-entry eprmit there after you have checked in with the ailrine.

Always do it at your local immirgaiton office if you can, the airport is a last resort.

Two days in advance?

What about the people who have an emergency and get an urgent flight somewhere? Are the covered.

Every time I extend my retirement visa, I get a multiple re-entry permit. Saves my pages and lets me make last minute trips.

You can still go witout an appointment, they appointment system only makes it quicker.

In emergencies the airport also has a re-entry permit counter from 06:00 till 24:00.

Re-entry permits never usually had a long wait anyway as far as I am concerned.

Now, if they automated the other things such as 90 day reporting, that would be great!
