PATTAYA: -- Three long term over-stayers were rounded up in Pattaya by immigration this week.

 

Immigration also continue to fine individuals who are not registered as resident in a property within 24 hours of arrival.

 

Top of those overstaying this week was a Kenya woman called Ruth Wanguikiruri, 29, who was found staying opposite The Pine Bar and Restaurant. She was detained on 691 days overstay on Wednesday.

 

Also arrested was Finnish man Tuomo Sakari Timonen, 55, who was rounded up at business premises at 143/139 Moo 2, Nong Preu, Banglamung.

He had outstayed his welcome by 594 days and was handed over to Pattaya police for processing.

 

Third was a British man on 592 days overstay caught on Thursday morning. He was Mehdi Kalbasi Ashtari, 32, who was apprehended at the Rung Fa condominium in the city.

A Thai lady was fined on Thursday after she had not registered her apparent relative at rented rooms at 99/4 Moo 9.

 

Immigration checked the register and found that Ulai Sinfield, 40, had failed to register the name of Keith William Sinfield, 66, from the UK within the required 24 hour period after his arrival.

 

She was fined 1,600 baht. The relationship between the Sinfield pair was not mentioned in the Chonburi Immigration website report.

 

Also on Thursday a Thai manager was fined 1,600 baht for not registering a South Korean guest within 24 hours. Fined was Mongkhon Khemphan, 28, who had not registered Da Young Min, 17.

 

Chonburi Immigration report their latest activities most weeks on their website under the banner "Good Guys in, Bad Guys out".

Wow - three in a month !!!

 

So, by that effort, and if we are to believe Chiang Mai Immigration's Deputy Superintendent when he says "...there are 800,000 foreigners living illegally in Thailand..." (https://is.gd/3YRdPw), then these guys can expect busy months for the next 20,000 years or so !!!

The above mentioned gentleman could best direct his efforts elsewhere like improving our immigration system here in Chiang Mai. His record here is about as good as the record they have for rounding up illegal foreigners. How did the meeting go with the TAT lady here in Chiang Mai or is it a future event or just another forgotten event.

I'm pretty certain Burmese, Laos and Cambodian are included in those figures.

I have an idea :biggrin:

Got to wonder how many other wifes have failed to register their foreign husbands living in their house/condo... I only did it as we were told we wouldn't our extension of stay without that paperwork (this is a school). No fines for not having done it previously.
