Phuket Immigration Chief Transferred

Recommended Posts

Can't U guys read anything between the lines? Phuket is the first place anywhere in Thailand I ever had to pay a Bribe to get something done on my passport, It was not very much, but it was a real eye opener, There was a special fee and no place to gain understanding of it, a long line of Ferang waiting to get this stamp and pay the special fee.

That this guy would be transferred and so close to his retirement, is a real indication that somebody somewhere is trying to do some clean up in a much needed area, about time too, Phuket has been an immigration mess for as long as I have been coming to Thailand.

No, In actual fact quite the opposite, he wasn't making his quota of Tea Money!:)

this is garbage, someone trying to create a story out of innuendo in true tabloid tradition - to whoever inserted this nonsense of a story, you're letting this excellent website down!

Steady on newbe, don't get so excited, move on to the next story, put your feet up, have a beer, even put a topic on for us to chew over. You sound like she's got another headache, if so, tell us about it, there you are, a topic for you. :)

I always found Phuket Immigration office helpful and friendly....never ever had any kind of hassle in over 10 years...just get your papers in order when u go there and show some respect and have never ever offered tea money and none was ever solicited...never fails to amaze when I see expats in their lovely stinking singlets and dirty beach shorts with a can of beer in their hands at 10am in the morning with real attitude expecting to be treated as though they were someone important...only in their own minds are they important...one would never go into their own embassy in such dress and attitude....wouldn't get past the security for starters

Here Here, Of all the Immigration Offices I have dealt with over the 10yrs I have been resident in Thailand, I have never once been asked for any under the table payments, that happens in so many of the other Government Offices. Phuket office I found very efficient and helpful. However I was amazed at the lack of respect with regards to poor dressing and the said beer can etc, by the foreign fools thinking it ok to behave in this way.

Whilst I am from Koh Samui, therefore cannot comment on Phuket, I have to say that over the past five years I have received nothing but helpful and efficient service from the Koh Samui Immigration. No tea money given, or solicited for, but on the numerous occasions I have telephoned them about Visa queries for various friends and aquaintances, I have always had a polite and straight forward answer. I am due to renew my 1 year visa on 27 Feb 10 - Samui Immigration please take note!!! :)

who cares

....who took the bribes, or will take them in the future!

I heard that reshuffles are ordered to give another group of staff the same opportunity to get rich soon. Understandable if you loook at their salaries....

It happened at some border points, which I do not like to mention.

S*P*A*M

I'd agree with that assessment. Not exactly important breaking news.

Calm down now, your new to the forum, relax, do some yoga whilst reading the topics, it helps. :) Can't wait to read your exciting posts.
