Chiang Rai Immigration

Recommended Posts

I have lived in Chiang Mai for 8 years now.

I am sick and tired of the Immigration office here and the stress that goes along with it in renewing my retirement Visa and also doing my 90days.

In the past I have considered moving to Chiang Rai.

Now that C Rai has their own Immigration office,

Is the Immigration process there better, more effeciant and faster?

I have often read the stories from the Chiang Mai forum about their Immigration offices. I am so glad that I live over the mountain range near Phayao. The biggest wait at the Chiang Rai Immigration office is finding a car park.

Edit

The staff their are very efficient and friendly

Chiang Rai Immigration has always been one of the (lesser known outside this Province) advantages to living here. My retirement extension took about 30 minutes, most of which was chatting with the agent. A 90 days usually takes 3 minutes.

And no requirement for advance bookings, reservations, lineups.

Makes reading about the joys of Chiang Mai I(mmigration so much more fun.

I never had any problems at MaeSai either, they were always polite, friendly and helpful.

You can find more information about CR Immigration in this older thread http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/699802-immigration-office-in-cr-open/

The office is near where the annual flower show is held on the river. It is on the ring-road at the intersection which leads to the airport in one direction or the bridge in the other.

And Jesus wept. A Chiang Mai resident. Please no more of this good news on immigration around the country I cannot stand it anymore. We seem to live on a lifeboat here with a hole in the bottom in the middle of the ocean. Up a creek without a paddle.

2.5 years in CM and every time I go to CR I ask myself why do I live in CM... and now with the complete cluster <deleted> at CM immigration I'm really banging my head.
CR really is a nicer place in my opinion.

Though we are blessed with an immigration office which is convenient and staffed by wonderful people, it doesn’t stop the odd individual putting on a display of bad behavior and trying their best to spoil the mood of the place.
