Thai Immigration Office in Surat Thani, Thailand

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the Thai Immigration Office in Surat Thani, Thailand. Let us go ahead and give you some information first. We got this information from the Thai Immigration website, that is the dot GO dot TH like a  dot GOV in the US system, website. The address for Surat Thani Immigration is 41 / 12 Moo 2,  Tambol Tungrang,  Amphur  Kanchanadit, Surat Thani 84290; so that is the address for the Surat Thani Immigration Office.  

Just sort of on a general advisory note, it should be noted that different Immigration Offices in Thailand do things slightly differently. So for administrative expedience purposes or administrative processing purposes, different offices may have different documentation requirements which pertain to different types of Visas. What may work in another Province for example what may work at the Phuket Immigration Office, may not particularly apply exactly to the Surat Thani Immigration Office. Meanwhile, where you have Koh Samui, that Immigration Office may have a different set of protocols for processing a given case compared to the mainland at Surat Thani. So do not presume that just because one Immigration Office does things one way that that will be uniform throughout Thailand. That is not the case. Different offices have a different way of doing things and understanding this will probably cause you a lot less consternation when dealing with various offices and also provide some insight especially when understanding, often times it is from just an administrative expedience, an Office gets used to processing cases in a certain order for example the documentation collated in a certain order or in a certain way or they like certain documentation they view as more dispositive of a given fact compared to other documentation and they are just used to processing it that way and that is just the way it works there. There is no point really trying to get into why it works that way. Just understand that is the way it is and act accordingly. 

So, the thing to take away from this video, that is the location of the Surat Thani Immigration Office and understand what may have worked a certain way in another office may not specifically work that way in that Immigration Office in Surat Thani, Thailand.
