Current Fast track immigration options?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have never tried Fast track immigration at BKK airport going out, except when on biz class tkt, but this time my agent will only provide economy.

* Therefore what are my options (if any?) to buy a fast track immigration coupon to bypass any long immigration queues?

Are these available, are they sold at airport, online or how many services provide this if any?

I haven't flown out of BKK in a couple of years, but worried about long queues..? I guess the queues are long?

Appreciate any feedback thx

I did both over the past year. My experience is that on the way out it's generally ok. On the way in it can be hit or miss. Several times on business class it was just as quick to go to the normal desks At other times the queue was fairly long, down the sloping ramp etc, at those times it was good to have the business class option.

It really all depends on your arrival time and how many planes have landed 5 to 10 minutes before yours'.

Try google meet and greet bangkok airport and see what pops up.smile.png

All business class passengers are allowed to use Fast track immigration service? I've been traveling in business class for years but no one told me that info.

Do you not get handed a fast track voucher by the stewardess ? I have on B.A., Eva, Emirates, KLM...always fast track for years now.

If I fly economy I get excellent service from:

about 2k baht for golf cart to the fast track lane from plane. Was 100 meters once which was funny , but usually a really long walk from docking gate.

That over 70 can go through fast track is very interesting. Have you done it? Can you point us to the link where that is found? I'll be 70 soon!

Just a quick add on, don't leave your boarding card on the plane, they ask for it when you head for the fast track.

edit for spelling, too many GT's biggrin.png

Business class passengers get many perks. You need to educate yourself on them. Fast track around the world is only one of many.

I have difficulty standing for too long so now I use a walking stick. The first time I went to the airport using it, I was directed to use the fast track and sailed through.

After the flight as I was getting off the plane, I found they had requested a wheelchair for me and was taken by an airport guy all the way through the fast track right up to the taxi rank.

Now when I check in I go straight up to the airline help desk just beside the actual check in counter for that airline and request "wheelchair assistance" They take my bags and papers etc and check me in as "priority" so no need to wait in any line.

The wheelchair arrives with it's driver and off we go, whizzing past everyone. When it's time to board the guy comes back to take me right up to the aircraft door before others are allowed to board.

Now my need for this free service is genuine whilst some others might just abuse it, but who's to know.

In many airports around the world you can now see at immigration a dedicated line for VIPs, pregnant women or with young children and OAPs. You don't need a wheelchair, just a walking stick.

Get to the Airport early then u havnt got to worry about worrying.

Thanks for all the ideas guys, just what I needed.

So as I've said been over 2 years since I flew out of BKK airport, are the queues acceptable or absolutely ridiculous these days?

If latter I will surely pay the fast track booking fee.
