Overstay?
« on: January 06, 2015, 02:01:20 PM »
Does anyone know if it is possible to pay off a visa overstay at Suvarnabhumi without too much hassle?  My friend is looking to overstay by about 10 days.  Just pay the 10k at Suvarnabhumi immigration?  Is this possible?

Thanks TT

I would be careful about overstays now the army is in control.

Don't know if it was huff and puff but I did read some where they were cracking down on over stayers.

Why doesn't your friend go to the next Immigration Office and simply applies for a visa extension (even if he doesn't have grounds to get one) the day he has to leave? That will cost him 1,900 THB and give him a stamp "extension of visa is under consideration" for 7 days. That is a lot cheaper than the 500 THB per day he would pay at the airport. His overstay will then count from that last day of "official consideration".

New Information on Korat-Info is, that since last October any Immigration Office in Thailand can extend a 30-day Visa Waiver that was given at entry for 30 more days. All you need is your passport,  the TM7 form filled out asking for 30 days extension and a passport picture affixed, and 1,900 THB. The info comes from a trustworthy member, who has already done so twice now.

I'd like to add something here.  For 90 day reporting, they've gone back to using the form.  Not sure why, but I just did mine and they required the TM-47 form once again.  I've always brought one with me for the last year, even though they've never required it.  They typically would just do the scan thing.  The one time I don't bring it, I have to fill one out.  Go figure. 

For those who want a copy of it, attached is the form in pdf format.
