The Thai Immigration Offices in Phuket, Thailand

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the Thai Immigration Offices in Phuket Thailand. 

I am making this video to provide me, in a sense it is kind of a convenience for me and I hope it is a convenient for viewers and folks who are looking for this information. In a sense it is a sort of shorthand for when I get inquiries from folks about specifics regarding a specific Immigration Office.  This is a video that I would like to be able to send to people and have up just to provide some general information about the Thai Immigration Offices in Phuket. 

So to be clear, there are two Immigration Offices in Phuket, Thailand. Phuket is a major tourist epicenter here if you will and so I think that there are two offices mostly to deal with all the overload. The first Phuket Immigration Office is located at 482 Phuket Road, Tambon Talat Yai, Amphur Muang,  Phuket 83000. The other Immigration Office in Phuket is the Phuket Immigration Office on Patong Beach and it is located at Patong-Taweewong Road, Patong, Phuket, 200 meters north of Bangla Road. So two offices down there. 

Something else. I get a lot of it inquiries or I get a lot of folks that interact with me that say "they are doing it like this in Phuket. They do it like this in Pattaya. You said in your video they do it this way."  We deal with Bangkok primarily although we often deal with Chonburi and Samut Prakarn depending on the given case in hand. Different offices are going to deal with things from a procedural standpoint in a different way and sometimes they take different interpretational approaches to not only relevant Thai Immigration Law but as well as the regulations stemming from Thai Immigration Law. 

So again depending on the Immigration Office you may see a difference in the application of relevant Thai Immigration Law as well as the procedures associated with making an application or proving up one's eligibility for a given visa category and things are just going to vary from Province to Province and within Phuket it may vary from office to office. So again that can be rather exasperating for some folks but it is the system and it is the system that we have to deal with.
