Banned: new rule comes into force prohibiting visa overstayers from re-entering Thailand
From March 20, new immigration rules will come into force that will
BAN foreigners from re-entering Thailand if they overstay their visa by
more than 90 days.
The new rule is part of tightened security measures, Thai PBS reported.
Foreigners who voluntarily come forward will face the following bans:
if they overstay for more than 90 days they will be banned from
re-entering the country for a year; overstays of more than a year will
face a three-year ban; overstays of more than three years will face a
five-year ban; and overstays of more than five years will face a
Authorities warned that those who don't hand themselves in will be
arrested and prosecuted, and face longer bans. If they overstay less
than a year they will be banned for five years, and if they overstay for
more than a year they will be banned for ten years.
Immigration officials will ask hotels, apartments, hostels and
landlords renting homes or rooms to foreigners to report the stay of
foreigners so they can keep a closer track of their stay in the country.
