Reports: Thai-Cambo border check points closed to visa runners with immediate effect

Recommended Posts

I totally agree with that and other posts with similar content.

In fact everyone who does this visa run crap is mis-using the Thai visa system as you're not a tourist.

I know many of you don't want to hear this but it's the truth. If you can't comply with the laws in this country go somewhere else... [emoji36]

That's fine.

Just stop all construction work (cambodians, viet)

Just close most restaurants & hotels (Chinese chefs, philipinos and myanmar serving food and cleaning rooms all illegal)

Just forget about talking English (English teacher teaching in schools without work permit)

Most ONG, charities, animal rescue can close down.

And forget about getting a nanny or a maid.

And as all these people have left you can also save money and jobs at immigration office, and Foreign consulates can repatriate most of their staff

But don't worry you will still have bar girls, they are still mostly Thai.

Or come up with a more efficient method to document all these workers so they don't have to risk deportation by being employed here illegally.

LOL

Has it not occurred to you that if they wanted to employ legally all these people that would cost them more?

How do you think prices are kept so low for you to enjoy the place?

3 months is more than enough to see Thailand maybe 6 months max. I firmly believe that anyone who has back to back tourist visas longer than 12 months (4 entries/visa runs) is not a tourist. People get your shit together and get the correct visa.

What are you talking about?

Can't compare the visa situation of people from neighbouring countries to farang. I guess you better do some research before posting such nonsense.

And if you want to know, I never care about any bar girls but obviously you do...

A search on the web relating to this issue produces 0 results! There is no reference to it anywhere, except a link to ThaiVisa Forum.

Perhaps a major scoop for TVF or perhaps a misunderstanding.

Let's just wait for an official statement before we all start wringing our hands

Why not ?

They are all doing visa run.

How are they different from Farangs?

He is not referring to tourists. He is referring to the loads of people abusing the system and working illegally in Thailand or trying to live here for extended periods without valid long stay visas (i.e. retirement visas, marriage visas, work permits).

1. i'm in my 40s so no retirement visa available

2. i don't need to work. i'm self-sufficient and if i ever were to work again it would be in the west (ie. western salary) and not thailand.

3. i'm not interested to engage with/marry a thai woman

so according to you people like me have no right to stay longterm in this country? i speak the language better than most clowns who married here or "work" here, i have genuine friends here (and not a bunch of parasites eating my cash). i've never been illegal in the country, i do things by the book (although i have been offered all kinds of solutions by the always friendly $mm$gration p€ople), but i deliberately am a longterm tourist which seems to annoy a certain type of people on TVF. is it jealousy? or plain bitterness... please enlight me. cheers.

A tourist is a tourist. Travels on a long or extented holiday. Doesnt usually get married. Work under the table, have kids. rent or buy condos or houses......And complain that the laws here suck. I have been here almost 25 years. Have never had the wrong visa.Visa abusers are illegal immigrants. Many of whom have F#@$d it up for people who are legal.

According to people here, you are a lazy parasite who should go back to your country to contribute paying their pension.

Who is "they"? The employers? Safety should trump a good time at a low cost. There may be a bit of an adjustment period, but no reason not to put a little burden on employers and employees, as well as on tourists to plan ahead by booking hotels and return travel.

Like in ANY country in the world, Thai companies exploit cheaper illegal labor to cut costs.

And here more than anywhere. And thats not going to stop anytime soon

Probably not. Doesn't mean it shouldn't, which is what my initial point was.
