Stranded foreigners must get embassy letter, new visa or leave Thailand to avoid arrest by police

Published

Visa Extension Thailand

The tough stance is expected to follow if an amnesty for short-term visa holders is not extended beyond July 31st as indicated. The move coincides with a continued crackdown on foreigners working illegally in the kingdom and those engaged in criminal activity. This has intensified given current high levels of unemployment in the Thai economy due to the virus crisis.

don’t overstay in Udon Thani

A spokesman for Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has warned foreigners stranded in Thailand who cannot manage to leave the country before their visa expires on July 31st next, to urgently seek a letter from their embassies as the kingdom begins a ‘clear out’ which could make them the subject of overstay fines as well as arrest and detention by Thai authorities.

stranded-foreigners-letter-from-embassies-or-leave-thailand-to-avoid-arrestWith a strong indication that the visa amnesty for visa holders stranded in Thailand since the state of emergency was announced at the end of March, will not be extended, it is time for those foreigners with visas to either return home or regularize their affairs at the nearest  Immigration Bureau office.

The danger of not doing anything is a very real one. This week, a top Immigration Bureau official, Colonel Phakkhaphong Saiubon, said that those who cannot organize flights should get a letter from their embassies. The renewed urgency of the note struck coincides with renewed impetus in the crackdown on foreigners staying illegally in Thailand launched last October by Immigration Bureau chief, Lieutenant General Sompong Chingduang.

Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has signaled that it is highly likely that the current visa amnesty for travelers or tourists stranded in Thailand since before the state of emergency was announced at the end of March, will end when it expires on July 31st.

It comes as immigration authorities have reopened their ancillary office in Muang Thong Thani, on the outskirts of Bangkok, to cope with increased demand as foreigners prepare to flock to process their visa extensions. The offices were first opened just weeks before the current visa amnesty to allow for social distancing as visa holders are processed through the system.

Immigration Bureau needs to ‘clear out’ people to reset the system and resume normal enforcement

On Friday last, Colonel Phakkhaphong Saiubon, a spokesman for the bureau, spoke of a need to ‘clear out people’ in the system as Thailand fitfully moves towards normalizing travel in the future in and out of the country.

The immigration police officer was responding to questions on the status of the visa amnesty which has already been extended once and was first introduced on April 7th.

It effectively meant that any visa expiring after the state of emergency was announced on March 26th would be automatically extended.

The initial expiry date was April 30th but this was subsequently extended to July 31st.

Colonel Phakkhaphong was forthright in his assessment.

‘There most likely will not be an extension. It’s all quiet on that front. It’s been a long time and we need to clear out people,’ he said.

‘Thailand and the Thai government are already generous. No other country has this long of a visa amnesty.’

There are currently no figures available suggesting how many foreigners may still be left stranded within Thailand’s borders.

 

It is estimated that, at the outset of the emergency, as many as 500,000  foreigners were accommodated. This number has been steadily reduced as foreigners availed of scheduled flights which are still flying out of Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok as well as repatriation flights organized by foreign governments.

The situation after July 31st will mean visa overstay fines will apply to those foreigners overstaying their visas from that date. They will also be required to comply with the 90 days reporting requirement.

This visa amnesty did not apply to foreigners who already had visas other than a tourist visa or who had entered Thailand before January of this year.

Stepped-up activities against illegal foreigners in play

There is already evidence that immigration bureau officers and other police forces have already stepped up enforcement activities against foreigners living and working illegally in Thailand over the last few weeks.

This has been part of an ongoing security crackdown introduced by the junta government in 2015 and carried over with the aim of tightening Thailand’s borders and improving security.

2 Siberian huskies in Udon Thani’s Nong Sang district killed

Published

on

Also yesterday, animal rights group Watchdog Thailand’s Facebook page gave details of the gruesome killing of 2 Siberian huskies in Udon Thani’s Nong Sang district. According to the post, the owners came home from the temple on Tuesday to a grisly sight… the bodies of their 2 dogs with their heads smashed in, eyes gouged out and bodies slashed.

WDT say the owners believe the attacker’s goal was to only kill the dogs, as nothing in the house had been stolen or damaged. They also said the dogs were always kept in their kennel to ensure they didn’t go out and kill chickens owned by nearby locals.

WDT says they are monitoring the case and have urged the owners to report the case to the police. It’s believed that one of the locals may believe the dogs hunted their chickens, so decided to kill them in revenge.

Drugs are put on display at the Narcotic Suppression Bureau in Bangkok on Tuesday after they were seized from suspects during the long weekend.

Police arrested 11 suspects in three-drug trafficking cases over the past long weekend, seized 1.5m meth pills, 2.4 tonnes of cannabis, six kilograms of ketamine, and assets worth altogether about 200 million baht.

The Narcotic Suppression Bureau announced on Tuesday that Pirapat Chaisunthorn, 24, and Jariya Niyompeng, 24, were arrested with 400kg of compressed cannabis hidden in their blue Hyundai van on Nitayo Road of Sawang Daen Din district in Sakon Nakhon.

They said they picked up the illicit cargo in Nakhon Phanom province and we’re delivering it to buyers in Bangkok.

In another case, Songklod Sriharan, 40, Chaisri Kong-aksorn, 63, and Ratchanok Boontha, 36, were arrested with 1.4 million speed pills in Ban Mae Padoi village of Thoen district of Lampang. They were caught when they showed up to get a parked Isuzu pickup truck with pills hidden under old mattresses and chicken cages.

The truck had earlier failed to stop at a checkpoint in Li district of Lamphun. The three suspects said they were hired by another man to get the vehicle. Police said the pills were from Mae Taeng district of Chiang Mai.

Police impounded two houses and seized land title deeds and a car. They also froze 3.7 million baht in savings accounts pending an investigation.

In the other case, Mongkol Chonthanasilp, 31, Thanabodi Yakasem, 48, Busayaporn Rangwijee, 36, Nirote Mingkwan, 35, Boonprom Laknongbu, 30 and Patracha Taweewan, 38, were arrested with two tonnes of cannabis and six kilograms of ketamine on Nong Han- Kumphawapi Road in Nong Han District of Udon Thani.

 

 

Police said the suspects were transporting the drugs from Bung Kan province to greater Bangkok. They were traveling on three vehicles. The drugs were found on a Toyota pickup truck accompanied by two other vehicles.

Police seized from the suspects a total of 21 vehicles and the title deed for a plot in Kaeng Khoi district of Saraburi province where a cannabis compressor was found.
