visa re-entry stamp at the airport

Recommended Posts

Also for those of you reading this post to try to understand the reentry permit process - It is important to note that obtaining the reentry permit is only the first step - When you return to Thailand you MUST put the reentry permit number on your arrival card in the space that ask for your visa number... If you fail to do this the immigration officer will just stamp you in for a standard 30 days... and you join the ranks of Nancy's lost souls... ;-)

 

Even if you put the number on the card they have been known to forget (It happened to me)... I always make a point to look at the dates on the stamp right after being stamped in... and if incorrect walk right back to the officer and politely point out the error...

 

I have also been taking a photo of my arrival card, reentry visa and flight boarding pass together with my cellphone once I have filled out the arrival card in the plane on the flight back...

Again, you're talking about a small minority of people who need major assistance to do a lot of things....to even know they need a re-entry permit, to know they need to get an extension, do a 90-day report, whatever.  

 

But....for anybody having some ability and cognizance that they need a re-entry permit (which likely includes almost everyone who actually reads ThaiVisa and can understand the English language)....it's easy to do. 

 

The OP certainly has enough capability to get it done easily at the airport and that's what he asked.  So long as he's leaving on an international flight at CNX, the re-entry desk will be open.  And he should download and fill out the TM8 form, paste a photo where indicated, and take the necessary passport copies (OP....there's a pinned topic to tell you what documents are needed).  For a single re-entry permit, it's 1,000 baht and it's 3,800 for a multiple re-entry permit.  And, presuming he's upstairs 30-60 minutes prior to his flight, he'll have more than enough time. 

You seem to believe that if people are not as clever as you it's their own fault they missed the desk. I did, and only saw it when I asked at the emigration desk. I could easily have missed it entirely.

This forum is for everyone, even those with disabilities and not particularly observant.

I agree. If you know enough to know that you need a re-entry permit, one would think you would know that you need to get it before you actually exit the country (i.e. pass through immigration)!

Did you ever ever drive, ride, run or walk past the place you wanted to go and have to turn around and go back to it?

How is that relevant? If you find yourself standing in front of the immigration checkpoint and you haven't yet obtained your re-entry passport, you'd have to be completely dumb to walk through that checkpoint (please note, they don't let you drive, ride or run through passport control in this or any other country). We aren't talking about missing a turning or walking past a shop, you have to get your passport out and show it to an immigration official. Are you trying to tell me that you could do that without realising what you were doing?

Many people have walked thru having forgotten to get their re-entry and are not completely dumb. I and many others have driven and rode through passport control in numerous countries without even getting out of or off our vehicles.  But you may be right about running through.

 

Your post is offensive and tells more about you than is pleasant.  Don't you realize what you are doing?

Yes, you certainly can since you already have your passport and boarding pass in your hand in order to pass through security.

 

It's especially possible if you've requested wheelchair service because you find it difficult to walk long distances and the wheelchair attendant has asked you for your passport and boarding pass.  Next thing you know, the attendant is asking if you want to sit in the wheelchair or a regular chair in the boarding area, because he's already processed you through the Immigration podium.

How can you fail to understand the relevance?

I would highly recommend that one get a single re-entry permit at the same time one does their annual extension - The permit is valid for the entire year of the extension and if not used your only out 1,000 bath which is a lot less than the cost of get a new visa due to forgetfulness... :coffee1:

People who need wheelchairs had already been 'put aside' in this debate - if you read the posts above mine you could see that.

 

And frankly, if you find yourself standing somewhere like this:

and you are unaware that you are at passport control, you probably shouldn't be travelling without a helper.

Again, completely irrelevant. You've driven through passport control in 'many countries' - so what?. We are talking about Thailand, are we not, and specifically Chiang Mai airport. How many times have you driven through passport control at Chiang Mai airport??

 

I'm not interested whether you find my post offensive; try sticking to the topic, which is re-entry permits in Chiang Mai, not in whatever other countries you happened to have stayed in. Please refer to the original post in this thread if you are still confused.

Please refer to your own post #20 where you yourself introduce other countries to the thread and the idea of riding through passport control.  Review your own posts since you are confused about who added those topics to the thread because it was you.
