New Thai Immigration Office in Chaeng Wattana

February 16, 2010

The Thai Immigration in Sathorn Soi Suan Plu is no more!!! I went all the way there today to extend my visa-on-arrival, and I find out they are closed and that the new office is out passed Lad Prao, at Chaeng Wattana.

Here are some tips

1. Take passport
2. 2 passport photos
3. a copy of your passport and your arrival card (should be stapled inside your passport)
4. the cost is 1900 baht for visa extension fee (+500 baht per every 1 day overstay)
5. if on tourist visa, you can get 30 day extension, if visa-on-arrival then only can get 7 day extension

They are open 8:30am til 4:30pm and they have noon-1pm lunch break.

Some pictures of their new location:

Thai Immigration address:

  1. That’s a huge new immigration building! With those visa prices I’m sure they can afford to build a few more of these on short notice ;-)

  2. By the way, anyone have experience doing the Cambodian VISA runs with Mr. Seath? His celly is 086-025-9756

    At Silom MRT Station, took the big bus to Poipet (they have available at 6, 7, 8, and 9am)
    Arrive Poipet
    -pay guy 1300 take passport fill forms, wait 15min
    -get those stamped (+500 baht per day overstay)
    -give 500 baht more to police dude, and wait
    -he come back and now go back to Thailand
    ….I tipped the guy 200 baht (is that good or bad?)
    Buy bus ticket back to Bangkok, 300 baht

    What is your Cambo Poipet VISA run experiences? These are obsolete now since the by-land visa is only 15 days right?

  3. drive to aran by own car, pay cambodian consulate 1000 baht & 500 baht borderpolice.

  4. Thanks Rainer for your suggestion.

    FYI, Aranyaprathet is Thai side of border crossing, Poipet is the Cambodian side. (with all the casinos)
