Maybe he is flat broke and just took a chance. But its not the crime of the year is it? A little bit of jealisy here I think ' I payy dues, so should he' kind of thing. He was overstayed got caught will be sent home big deal a few days in the nick nor nice but not life threatening either. He will go home start his life over. Not too old get a job save up and go somewhere else.if I was illegal I would not frequent a place where immigration keep watch was a bit dumb but hwy so what

It was the crime of the year for him! Or maybe not. Anyone on overstay of more than a few days is not only breaking the law, but most likely hiding something or hiding from something.

Not our problem. If flat broke...again not our problem nor the Thais. They require proof of income or a minimum amount in a Thai bank for a reason. They don't want foreign derelicts here. Have enough derelicts of their own!!! Looks a decent sort, but looks can be deceiving.

Overstay: One has to be incredibly stupid or having something to hide from authorities.

I think that is quite simple.

No It can happen by accident

Government holiday can trip the tourist up

Simple isn't it

By 105 days? Not so simple... Edited by Skeptic7

Maybe behaving oddly means he was not ducking in and out of bars, or he was walking in a straight line cos he was sober. What's behaving oddly?

Maybe he has a silly walk...

In this situation, does immigration require you to get a ticket back to your home country or will a ticket to any country suffice?

How much is a cheap ticket to UK he can borrow from family its fairly cheap. Chiang mai seems OK but Pattaya seems to be a violent unfriendly place for a foreigner. Not quite so keen on Thailand after what I see on TV I thought Philippines was a dangerous place but its nowhere near as violent for foreigners as Thailand.

No cheap ticket to the UK for him. He will only be allowed to fly direct, usually THAI

Hw cannot fly cheap because he will not be allowed to have a stop anywhere to prevent him absconding.

One of England's finest no doubt...enjoy those Blighty winters for the next 5 years tongue.png

What makes you think he has to stay in the UK?[/quote)

Return to England

That's no hazard guess according to tv's finest our world renown armchair theorists. The world is centered around Thailand. Vietnam - Cuba and so on are Immeterial.

It's wonderful to know we are so lucky !!!!

At 32 years old, I can't imagine he just forgot to report. Wonder if it was deliberate, that is, of all the things in his life that are definite, he now has a definite reason not to return to Thailand within 5 years. It takes all sorts, eh?

Where do these people get money from to survive those many years? I know 2 Germans and it was just about selling drugs and pimping.

Guys like that are the ones causing the problems for the rest of proper tourist here. 5 years jail as example and then 5 years banded to teach everyone a lesson.

I'm curious....

Do the Police allow an overstay to return to his room/home to gather personal items or he arrested, jailed, sentenced and escorted directly to the airport?

Does he have to return to his home country or can he fly to another Asian country?

The guy really is a bit stupid. He could have got a METV in the UK and stayed legal or at

least a SETV and he would just have been a little over. Stuck on dumb. blink.png

ha ha what do you mean "well done", so they caught one, there are thousands here, total incompetence, just set up a booth in walking street for a start that should catch a few hundred.

Are you a clairvoyant? If you are such a genius are, why not you offer up for this work to catch overstayers? Or you're just a smart ass?

This moron, is either lazy or ignorant. He could of easily got 6month visa or an extension before going thru a deportation! Does he get a free flight out of the kingdom?
