I went to Immigration last week to find it in a state of
flux. No number machine and rather chaotic. A friend of mine went yesterday
and said they have removed the counter at the front. Not sure what the
thinking is behind that, hope it makes things marginally better anyway.
Considering the number of people they must process
Immigration people do a pretty good job, it just seems to me that something
needs to be done to make the place easier to use and more efficient. Go any
morning and it is packed. My friend told me to go in the afternoon, that
it’s less busy but then I worry I won’t get processed and will have to come
back. Probably the same thing everyone else worries about.
Honestly, they need to do something about those of us who
need to report every 90 days. People doing that alone must really fill the
So, to the Immigration bosses, suggest to the head of
Immigration for Thailand that they fork out some money to improve the Chiang
Mai office. And while you are at it, see if they can get that 90 day
reporting online. It would make everyone’s lives much easier.
