I did see the map supplied but without my Thai translator (wife) and being in CANADA atm I used the above map as a guide.
When I as the wife for directions in Thailand all she says is "Over there", sorry I am used to using a gps and some times need to know the precise coordinates, for which a Thai postal address will not give you (well me at least).

I just thought some of you might like a more precise location of the new Imm' Office.

Install Google Earth on your PC and open kmz files with that.

For the Thank you button you gotta wait for me to feel like taking care of reinstalling that mod. But it is as you said: No appreciation, no motivation!

I too had no idea what a kmz is/was so I copied and pasted this, I hope it helps any other ignoramus's like me:-

Opening KMZ files

Did your computer fail to open a KMZ file? We explain what KMZ files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your KMZ files.
What is a KMZ file?

KMZ files are KML files that have been compressed or "zipped" for easier download and distribution. Files with the .kmz extension store the locations of the maps that are used by the Google Earth mapping application.

Sometimes a KMZ file will include 3-D model data that has been exported from an SKP file. When this happens, the model is placed on the map to give users an idea of what the building will look like in that specific area.

The Google Earth application is a mapping application that offers users a bird's-eye view of recorded locations across the globe.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too!

Nan,

I found the Immg office by following the map that Johnnie F posted. The traffic light at the northern end of the maps is the one going to the Industrial area to the east. I then went to goggle street maps and looked on the west side of the road and found the Immg' Division 4 as goggle calls it so I am ASSUMING  that this is the new reporting center for Korat. I then went to goggle earth and made a place mark which gives on the kmz file to be used and sent to others.

If you like the old school here is the Lat' 14°54'25.35"N & Long' 102° 9'1.11"E

I use goggle streets & goggle earth to navigate myself around, especially in Thailand as I said before "Over there" just does not cut it for me. LOL

thaiga,
If you could please confirm next week that would be great as I don't get back to Korat until the beginning of September.

Thaiga,

If you are coming from the south its a couple of streets before the one you have, check out these 2 screen captures to see where it is. If you have google earth you can use the kmz file that i provided previously.

This immigration office has been here for years.  It's actually the main HQ where they do investigations and have a holding cell. It's pretty easy to find as there are signs along the way if you are heading into Korat from the old office.

Well! that shouldn't be hard to find then, signposted and if it been there some time one of the locals will point it out to you, "it's over there" 👆 or nooone  ::)

They certainly moved around a bit, but not to moan i remember having to go all the way to Pattaya years ago, had no choice my bank was there for the much needed letter.

The first immig office in Korat was at Assumption opp big c many years ago, then moved to the tot building,way past save one, on to chok chai then dan kwian and now from aug 1st. to it's new location.

BUT ... don't hold your breath - keep the thread going J/F - Thanks for all those who contributed  :wai

Did i say it was sign posted, seems they took the signs down as the office for investigations (for which it was used) has moved to khon kaen, So that will be used as the new Korat immigration office from now on, i was invited to follow one of the removal vans today whilst there, it is a lot easier to find than d/k was.

Coming from Korat on the 224, go past the new Makro on your right, over the traffic lights (under walkover bridge) where there is a big sign Suranee indusrial estate, now do a u turn, come back on yourself, look for the road on your left BAN NONG PING (signposted) a little way down that road immigration office is on your right.
