IGNORED

Visa Stamp


lawson

Recommended Posts

Hi People, had a look in forum but cant see anything about this

 

 

My friend applyed and obtained 3 month visa. He is in Patts now. He has flown to other islands in Thailand but never left.

He just noticed now, the stamp in his passport has been stamped giving him less time on the departure date stamp.

does he have to leave earlier or is his 3 month still valid??

 

cheers

May have to return to Immigration where he got the wrong stamp to get it corrected.

Plead ignorance upon departure. They will have the visa details in the computer.

Update.....This is what he just sent me...

 

 

 

They have said I need to go to the immigration office in Jontiem, where for 1900 Bt, they will re-stamp/ or correct it.. So I'll go tomoz and let you know the out come....
Seems a little silly paying £50 for a 3 month tourist visa in England then coming here and paying again £35 for a month more,,, Anyway I may have it wrong so I'll let you know what happens tomoz...

They're giving you a new 30 day extension, which is 1900 Baht.

A 3 month tourist visa only gets you one 60 day entry.  If you want longer, you need to extend it at immigration before the 60 days is up.  If he has exceeded 60 days already, he'll be paying overstay fines ...  3 months refers to the time you have from the date of issue to actually using the visa.

He only been there 3 weeks and not been out the country except flying from swampy to samui return, so no overstay issues. I think immigration at bkk fucked up but should find out more later and update

They're effectively giving you a new 30 day extension, which is 1900 Baht.

 

Others have returned to Suvarvabhumi and got it corrected for free, but it's a day of your holiday gone plus travel cost.

 

Moral of the tale, as has so often been told, pause as you leave Passport control and check your stamp.   :GoldenSmile1:

Dont think Thais have morals 55555 but agree what you said to check stamp

Tourists visas are good for a 60 day entry on arrival. No such thing as a 90 day Tourist visa.

 

They can be extended (for 1900 Baht) for an additional 30 days so some people may call them 90 day visas.

As already pointed out in Post #6 above:

 

"3 months refers to the time you have from the date of issue to actually using the visa".

Every time I enter the country I always have a close check of the stamp to see that it's correct, I've made numerous entries over the years but they have made a mistake once when they failed to notice I had a valid visa & re-entry and just stamped me for 30 days, so I was immediately back to the booth pointing out the visa. No problem, the guy adjusted the stamp there and then. I guess if I hadn't of picked it up until later it would have required a trip to immigration and some fee.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
