PHUKET: -- A French woman living in Phuket was deported from the Kingdom of Thailand on Tuesday (Dec 27) after being found to have overstayed her tourist visa by 103 days.

Wow I thought that a 5 year ban would only be done if you had overstayed a lot more then 103 days. I guess I was wrong.

According to the rules, overstay less than one year and apprehended means a 5 year ban. If she would have given herself up it would have been a 1 year ban.

Stevenl, that must have been my mistake. I thought about the overstay if you give yourself up. I confused the 2.

Yes, very likely that a French tourist was banned in cooperation with the employment office.

Rules are rules. Furthermore, I think they will get tighter in future. Stay within the Law or face the consequences.

  That is a common human trait and it happens everywhere, not just in Thailand .

If you upset someone, they may take retribution 

 

yes but Thais are masters at it and i have seen it in action, very vindictive!

My two cents worth says, Adhere to the law OR the law will adhere to you. Simple.
