Returning to Thailand After Immigration Deportation

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing returning to Thailand following a deportation. 

Now this doesn't happen very often. We do see it happen sometimes. We assist clients in this regard but it may be possible after being deported from Thailand to return to Thailand. One of the main concerns associated with deportation is oftentimes The Blacklist, and one may be blacklisted for rather prolonged period of time; it could be a lifetime Blacklist under certain circumstances. At the same time if one has only been in Thailand for example in overstay for a relatively short period of time then the Blacklisting may be relatively short as a consequence of that prior overstay and therefore it may be possible to return to Thailand after a deportation. 

A lot of folks ask me "what should I do if I have been deported from Thailand and I am looking to come back?" I think it is a really good idea to contact a legal professional, gain some insight and guidance into how best to come back to Thailand and that is me saying this from some experience.  Each case is very different with respect to returning from deportation because it is very fact dependent based on why one was deported and there are circumstances which may look seemingly intractable but could ultimately lead to a return to Thailand especially in some cases involving families where a family is being reunited subsequent to a deportation. We have seen possibilities exist wherein it is possible to see return after deportation occur. 

That stated, it is a relatively rare set of circumstances where a return post-deportation can happen. So again, it is probably a good idea to contact a legal professional, gain some insight and guidance in to how best to proceed in returning to Thailand subsequent to being deported.
