Update - Tricky area involving overstay and police

Recommended Posts

Meanwhile people who kill police officers in a hit and run case are free to depart to wherever they may like to stay away from justice.

If I was forced to chose the company I had to keep here I would definitely prefer the O.P kohbar as opposed the the car ''driver''

In the original thread that you requested to be locked, you claimed several times that you were going to pay the overstay at the airport and fly to KL or Penang to get a new visa.

This new thread suggests you went the other way and had 'your guy in Bangkok' resolve the overstay 'in-country.' Beyond the drama and stress that seems to be the biggest thing you have taken from this rodeo, I am not sure about the legality of the option chosen and even less sure if the paperwork and stamps are not somehow legally compromised if they were obtained by fraud. So why did you change your mind?

I won't pass any judgement but I consider your initial overstay as strike one, the DUI while on overstay as strike 2 and your knowingly bypassing the only legal way to resolve an overstay as strike three.

Let's just see how you do in April at Jomtien but I can't help feeling you are 'out' already. Do you live in Ubon or Jomtien BTW?

Sorry i wont discuss how the overstay was sorted but its sorted dont worry. Although looks to me like your not "worrying", more hoping for a problem. This guy in BKK has been doing it for years, he is Thai and hundreds of people have used the service and left the country afterwards no problem. Someone even got an extension in Jomtien only last week after using him. No need to pass opinion on something you dont know about. Also No need to create a problem here when there isnt.

But to answer one of your questions, yes you are correct i was planning on flying out and back. But with the long overstay, limited pages in the passport and the risk of not seeing my son for a while i chose to do the inhouse option.

I live in Ubon. Why ?

I am with NanLaew here..... I am puzzled how you summerize this experience. No matter all the bullsh;t from some, you have been acting in a bad way, and you did it even when you cleared your overstay.. Will there ever be a legal way to sort stuff for you, or just an autostrada of bad ones....

I do however for the sake of your son, hope that you will start acting like an responsible parent, and do the right things, and be a rawmodel for yout son, not just another outlaw...

Yes its mistake but hardly murder.

Drink driving is not far off, and one must question the parenting skills, intelligence and responsibility of a father who drink drives whilst on overstay and with a wife and baby at home. I'm feeling sorry for your child already.

Lets hope this is the wake up call you need.

Indeed your right lessons have been learned as i said. "drink driving is not far off"...ok each to their own. Personally i think killing someone is actually far off having 5 beers instead of 3 but ok each to their own.

Just because you dont know how it was sorted doesnt mean it hasnt worked.

But yes your right it was wrong of me to do this while having a son and on an overstay. As i said in the post lessons learned.

I for one am interested on how you can sort an overstay in bangkok through the mail and how much something like that costs. How do you even make a connection like that? Honestly that info seems incredibly golden and appropriately legit on TV....too bad you can't share more details here... that kind of hook up is right up there with udonjoe intel...

There's legions of pension-age foreigners living in LOS that manage to get their annual Retirement or Marriage extension done without having the actual funds required to qualify for one let alone a letter attesting to having these funds. They avail themselves of several methods, some that entail short-term deposits in their personal bank accounts (and a bung to turn a blind eye to the duration of the deposit) to straight cash payments to Immigration people for stamps with no bank statements or other documentary evidence required. These Thai facilitators, just like 'your guy', have been doing it for years and people come and go (or not if they so chose) without any issues. If you too are comfortable 'solving' a illegality with yet another illegality is entirely up to you. Good luck on that chosen path.

I think the Immigration laws only allow for you to file visa extensions at the Immigration office that has jurisdiction over the area where you actually live. You say are planning to do your Immigration business at Jomtien next month? I think the only thing that a foreigner can do at any Immigration office is the 90-day report.

Oh dear. Again just because you dont know its possible doesnt mean its not possible.

If you dont know that with the right connections visas can be done at Jomtien then fine but doesnt mean its not possible. Anyway forget the one year.

My overstay is done mate, its real, sorry to dissapoint you but its all sorted. I have the out stamp, in stamp and exit stamp for April. Hundreds of people used the service with no complaints. You just need to accept its real, its done and these things are possible even IF you dont know about them.

I think the key point you may be missing is there is a difference between something being done under the table and the actual thing being done not valid. There is a difference. 1 year visas are possible at Jomtien. The process is under the table but the visa itself is legal and valid. Just like with the overstay the process was under the table but the result is legal and valid. Just because something is done under the table does not mean the result is illegal or not valid.

Hope this clears things up a little.

Glad to hear it worked out well. Again we see more and more reports that show overstay really isn't the crime of the century, really just an minor administrative infraction. Also not surprised to see there are agents that can rectify it in-country, I wouldn't be surprised if they can do it after March 20th without the attached blacklisting too.
