As I said Val, I was NOT recommending anyone to break the law. However it is possible to enter Laos this way, as I know people who have done so. The chance of detection is there, for certain, but it is not a huge one.
As you point out, re-entry into Thailand would be an impossibility....

I've also known people who had a 2 year overstay and as their passport had not expired
were able to purchase a departing flight ticket and when processing through immigration
at the airport, paid the 20k fine and left. If you're that anxious I'm sure it's possible to
retain an attorney to check the waters as it were but only if you're fearful of having some
outstanding charge, which would be the only thing I can see tripping you up. Probably the
most sensible thing to do would be procrastinate further pretend the problem doesn't exist. :lol:

I assume you are saying the immigration counter at departures of an airport. Walking into a processing office eg Nong Khai is not an option, your in the slammer for sure.

DON'T even consider an illegal entry into Laos or the like, if I had a choice I think I would prefer the deportation cells in BKK rather to who knows what in the neighboring countries.

It was not yet over stay. The guy stayed with the passport and later brouhaha back without the visa. already over stay. what can he do and what action can he take against the officer? name of the officer and address is as below.

Suggest walk into immigration, and sit and talk to the boss he will be interested. The outcome may not be what he want as he tried to circumnavigate the procedures here, but in this case honesty will always be the best policy.

Very surprised that the name of an individual is printed here, for all to see. The OP has made only 1 post. An Interpol General, if such a beast exists, will not be needing to supplement his salary using this type of transaction.

This thread covers seven years, much has changed in that time. They are a lot more serious about overstays these days.

Wonder what happened to the original guy?
