HUA HIN:-- Work is well under way on the building for the new Hua Hin immigration offices.
 
The 22 million baht project is set to open on Treasury Department land in February 2017.
 
Local journalist Kulsawek Sawekwannakorn, posted pictures on his Facebook page of the construction saying that the project is 60% completed.
 
The new offices are located at the top of Soi 88. 
 
In addition he said that a new passport office will be opened for business with five staff at Blue Port in Hua Hin in December.

Just another monument to stupidity. Thai Immigration can not staff or furnish existing immigration office throughout Thailand yet they are flushing 22 million baht down the crapper to be hi so.

Funny Khwaibah, Hua Hin office has a member of staff at nearly every counter each time I visit....What I find strange is they only moved a year ago ( or mayb less ) to new premises.

The question is why they moved their office about 2 years ago to 19 rai and are moving it again. They spend many millions to build and furnish the 19 rai office just to move it again. Doesnt make financial sense.

Thai bureaucrats have things built for the good of their wallets not the people they represent. If they could get away with it Hau Hin would have a new office every year.

This new office will be very handy for me as I live close to 88. Just had a ride up and down and can't see anywhere that resembles the photo's posted. Anyone out there that can point out it's location or a landmark close by?.

I just rode my bicycle out soi 88 this morning  and on to the bypass road (before seeing this post) as I do most Sunday mornings.  I haven't noticed the construction shown in the photos either.  So I'd also appreciate anyone who could clue us in to the specific location.  Thanks.

I live in Chiang Mai and just look at the photo's with yearning actually drooling. Yes it does not make financial sense. They told us we could not have a new office because of a shortage of funds and I am sure we have a much bigger expat population here than Hua Hin. I guess for some reason we are on immigrations sh*t/hit list. Many apologies Sieb.

What's "hi so" got to do with it??? And, BTW, how many "existing immigration office (sic) throughout Thailand" have you actually visited?

After leaving the police station some years ago, HH immigration have never had their own offices as such but have been the guests of property developers, restaurants etc probably in return for favours.  I believe this will be the first custom built office and wholly owned by the authority.

Not correct the office at 19 rai was build and equiped just for them. What is happening is that government want to bring the different departments together at one central point to enable people to be served without criss crossing town.
