More and larger photos at NK Imm Office

Post by davecryan » October 10, 2018, 4:10 pm

Went to NK Imm Office for 90 day report and Retirement Visa extension yesterday, In and out in 40 minutes as I had a genuine 800,000 deposit in Bkk Bank. However was told that next time they want TWO each of Lounge, Bedroom and External house photos. The usual passport size photo is to be increased to 2 inches and they want TWO of these for easier indentification ! Also there were 2 NO TIPS PLEASE signs stood on the desks.....things are tightening up !

God they do love making things up don't they?

What value are pictures of the lounge and bedroom? See if you're a traditional teak furniture kinda guy or an Index Mall shopper? Admittedly, the outside picture may help them find the house quicker if they actually made a house call.

I had my Retirement Visa extension done in Udon Thani yesterday, 25 minutes total incl. a Exit/reentry permit. No photos of house is asked for. And if you should forget to bring a passport picture they just use the cameras they have standing on the counter (I belive they charge an extra 100 baht for that service). I think that the service given at Udon Thani Immigration is outstanding.

I think that the extra 100 is for a picture with their desk camera. I was there one week ago with a good picture to my application and I paid only 1.900.

I rake my own photos so the one taken by them is for there records and should not be charged for the 1st few times they did my extension they charged 3000THB until I pulled them up on it they reluctantly did it for 1900 then wroye a note in my passport that caused me trouble next time I went to the border now I take my daughter with me every time I extend and get charged the 2000 I have also heard Bangkok immigration have signs up saying no tips I am due a visit to ud imm in next few weeks and I am sure there will be no such sign
