"He added that illegal immigrants and international criminals will also be a priority."

  Just like an after thought when we've finished checking out the regular guys?

I just returned from Savannakhet with a 90 day multiple entry visa, which I can "recharge" every 90 days by stepping out of the Kingdom.
Is one year to be "long stay", or does the requirement to exit make it a serial short stay?
Can I do this until the last 30 days, and then apply for a one year extension based on retirement?
And now to segue back to the original topic, is the "new broom" going to do anything about IO officers who want 16,000 baht to "smooth the path" for a 1,999 baht non "O" visa, (and who knows what other schemes)?
Is it really a department requirement to travel to Bkk to Foreign Affairs department to have them notarize (stamp)  an already US Embassy notarized statement of income?
Is it an immigration/RTP policy to require your landlord's ID card, house book, etc., etc.,  as proof of place of  residency? Isn't the landlord supposed to report all that? Or is this an instance of somebody is too lazy to enforce this on Thai landlords  and "we will just shift it to the damned farangs"? 
My small act of rebellion was to go to Savannakhet and get my visa, at a savings after travel, hotels, etc., of over 4,000 baht, and included an upgrade to the 5,000 baht multiple entry visa.
This is not just TV bitching and moaning. I really would like to know if the system is really just totally corrupt and anarchistic, or is there an actual set of rules and laws that is supposed to govern these procedures?

I would answer, but I don't want to put in the file of those saying something about Thailand that would not be approved of when the "deep investigation" includes handing over our forum password and username.

He is a newly appointed immigration chief. He has to make a public statement - it's tradition. The statement needs to sound as if issued by a competent officer, it should contain the care for country, monarchy and Prayuth (:tongue:). Anyway, he ticks off most points like a good bureaucrat, but that's really all, just the right words for the right ears. In the end it's what he actually does that counts.

A while back someone brought in the stupid and pointless "spy" form for us to fill out whenever doing anything at immigration. Even the staff thought it was a waste of time and it is no longer a requirement.

It was a pain in the butt while it was used though.

Same could happen with this new dictat.

Better hire a hell of a lot more staff if they want to get hard on checking people out more. Visa agent I use has a stack of foreign passports literally touching the ceiling, and if they give up rubber stamping the agents and scrutinizing them all those long term stay application better go in 11 months early.

The same could be said about the US, Europe, Australia, etc. It's convenient to blame/ban foreigners.

 

Fortunately here at Thai Visa we use the opposite approach of blaming anything that goes wrong anywhere in the world on Thais and Thailand.

 

I wonder why so many TV posters are so anxious about such a meaningless politically inspired comment from an Immigration Officer. Me thinks they doth protest too much.

WUM alert!
