Brit blacklisted for 5 years for overstay

Recommended Posts

In this situation, does immigration require you to get a ticket back to your home country or will a ticket to any country suffice?

How much is a cheap ticket to UK he can borrow from family its fairly cheap. Chiang mai seems OK but Pattaya seems to be a violent unfriendly place for a foreigner. Not quite so keen on Thailand after what I see on TV I thought Philippines was a dangerous place but its nowhere near as violent for foreigners as Thailand.

No cheap ticket to the UK for him. He will only be allowed to fly direct, usually THAI

Hw cannot fly cheap because he will not be allowed to have a stop anywhere to prevent him absconding.

One of England's finest no doubt...enjoy those Blighty winters for the next 5 years tongue.png

What makes you think he has to stay in the UK?[/quote)

Return to England

That's no hazard guess according to tv's finest our world renown armchair theorists. The world is centered around Thailand. Vietnam - Cuba and so on are Immeterial.

It's wonderful to know we are so lucky !!!!

At 32 years old, I can't imagine he just forgot to report. Wonder if it was deliberate, that is, of all the things in his life that are definite, he now has a definite reason not to return to Thailand within 5 years. It takes all sorts, eh?

Exactly! As long as he has money he can go anywhere. Cambodia is not too far away and the weather is nice there to.

The truth is that if you don't have Family Ties in Thailand, being Blacklisted here for 5 years is not going to hurt the violator very much at all or a big deal. Some Oil & Gas Worker on a 28/28 who comes to Thailand for a piss-up until his next job could care less if he gets Blacklisted. He will just wait out his time in another country and place like Cambodia.

So the questions arises that if you are not targeting the vacationer who comes on a 90 Visa and stays 120, or the Oil & Gas Worker with more time off than normal, who are they targeting? I would like to believe it is illegal workers but it doesn't seem to be the case. I don't read much about Police doing a raid on factory workers checking for working papers, but they sure seem to hit the bars a lot and Walking Street.

Or is it someone who is doing criminal activity, like drug smuggling or pushing drug? Seems to be it is an better idea to catch him at this, and also catch his contacts then just kick him out of the country. Personally I don't see Overstaying tightly linked to crime activity or breaking immigration laws. No more than normal anyway.

I think it has more to do with a tourist or visitor coming here, and deciding he wants to stay longer, but finds it difficult to do that without having to leave the country for a day. So if they made staying longer easier, then I believe many of the Overstays would disappear. Many countries have 6 month Visa's.

Where do these people get money from to survive those many years? I know 2 Germans and it was just about selling drugs and pimping.

Guys like that are the ones causing the problems for the rest of proper tourist here. 5 years jail as example and then 5 years banded to teach everyone a lesson.

I'm curious....

Do the Police allow an overstay to return to his room/home to gather personal items or he arrested, jailed, sentenced and escorted directly to the airport?

Does he have to return to his home country or can he fly to another Asian country?

The guy really is a bit stupid. He could have got a METV in the UK and stayed legal or at

least a SETV and he would just have been a little over. Stuck on dumb. blink.png

ha ha what do you mean "well done", so they caught one, there are thousands here, total incompetence, just set up a booth in walking street for a start that should catch a few hundred.

Are you a clairvoyant? If you are such a genius are, why not you offer up for this work to catch overstayers? Or you're just a smart ass?

I'm getting paranoid.

Every time I see the word "Overstay" I have to check my passport.
