PATTAYA:--More than 450 Pattaya businesses were told to be vigilant in reporting foreigners who overstay their visas as new, stricter penalties – including blacklisting for up to 10 years – takes effect Sunday.

Pol. Lt. Gen Natorn Prausuntorn, commander of Immigration Police, briefed the 460 hotel owners, tour guides, schools, hospitals, and private businesses on the new rules March 10 at the Discovery Beach Hotel on Soi 6.

New rules take effect March 20 that will, for the first time, put real teeth into Thailand’s immigration policies, banning overstayers from re-entering the country for one to 10 years, depending on the length of their overstay and whether they turned themselves in voluntarily or not.

For those who surrender, foreigners overstaying up to one year will be banned for a year from coming back to Thailand. Three-year bans await overstayers of 1-3 years while those who have lived here without a visa for 3-5 years will be banned for five years. Overstayers of more than five years will be banned for 10 years.

For those whose overstay is found upon arrest, the bans begin at five years for up to a year of overstay. Those here longer will be blacklisted for 10 years.

The Stasi has been reborn among the entrepentuers of Pattaya who in many cases might not welcome or even encourage a close a scrutiny as to their activities and company share holdings etc.

It would appear that the immigration don't have a clue where most of the "overstayers" actually are. So please give yourselves up otherwise we will not be able to find you.

I wonder how long it will be before one or more of the "upstanding" foreigners or pathetic hobby bobbies pictured holding the ludicrous "good guys in;bad guys out' leaflets gets busted for being a sexual deviant, a drug dealer,illegal worker, fake lawyer,snake oil purveyor etc. ?

Thailand is awash with internal problems. What they Do? Declare open season on a few overstayers and tying up hundreds of Policemen to raid Farang Condo Complexes. As has happened in View Talay 1 & 2 recently.

This is what I call "setting priorities".

Cheers.

"Wondering" about volunteers is so much easier than volunteering one's own time. I keep my side of the street clean and leave the wondering to others.

If you consider the approximate 800000 people currently here on overstay a few than might I suggest you go back to school and brush up on your math.
