New Hua Hin Immigration offices set to open February, 2017

Recommended Posts

Apologies,  I didn't mean to include the current location which they did say a couple of years ago that it was temporary but they'd be there longer than previous locations.

And of course it's Singkhon Immigration.  Maybe this move will officially class it as Hua Hin Immigration.

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.

 

Correct.

 

They don't own the current site at 19 rai. The building may have been purpose built for them but the plot of land is privately owned, I believe, or at least it isn't owned by the Immigration Bureau. This is why they can't fix the gaping holes in the car park or put in proper drainage to prevent it flooding whenever there is a heavy downpour.

 

Could be incorrect but I was told this new building will the main immigration HQ for the whole province. 

 

A shame they will be moving from the current site as the location is very convenient. Still, Soi 88 isn't so far away.

 

Also, the service at HH immigration has been much improved over the last 12 months or so. They've got some new staff in there who actually very helpful.

Amen to that!  I had to start to use the HH  office some 5 years ago where we were met by the Wicked Witch of the West and Genghis Khan.  Those were their actual nicknames!

As per other posters here, I live on Soi 88, I cannot find anything looking even vaguely like the pictures. Does anyone have a better idea of where it is, or has anyone managed to find it please :crazy:

If it is getting built  and  will be  open on time  that is  good  news... period.  I  had  heard  that  right  now  people  have

to go toward Petchburi  to  get  services.  Is  that  right?

Geezer

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.

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?.

If you travel along highway 1004 (the right turn at the traffic lights coming up Soi 112 or left coming down) follow 1004 passing Vana Varin as you pass smart house village it's on the right hand side.

The road eventually leads to the School on the Pala U road so can also find from that way or if coming from soi 88 turn left towards red mountain and at the crossroads at the end of the road turn right and the new immigration is on the right hand side after about 500 metres.

The building is on highway 1004 not Soi 88 as mentioned in some places

But what does the reference to a passport office in the dreaded Blueport mean?

 

I think that's an office for Thai passports (Thai residents) and was just lumped in with the vague concept of immigrations and passports.

Thank you for the detailed information.  I understand the area you're describing and will take a look during my bike ride this weekend.

I had to do my 90 day report today. Was very busy and the bloke I saw was moaning about how busy he was and that he had a bad headache.

I said well if we didn't have to come for this (I don't have internet explorer) you would have far less people. He then explained with great delight that from next month it would be possible to do 90 day reports, re-entry permits and a couple i things I can't remember at Blueport

Well, I stand corrected.  That would be very convenient, especially for those of us without cars/moto-sai.
