    Gunna cost him a pretty penny whichever way you look at it but Dawg's advice to speak to someone in the know before he attempts to leave will lessen the pain in the pocket.

    A visa run company or a solicitor might be able to help along with a 5,000 wedge.
    You put things off, maybe you don't have the money, maybe you fuck up. You put it to the back of your mind at first. You worry a little bit, but it doesn't stop you sleeping at night. Once you've done a few months and not been caught, you just stop thinking about it. Before you know it you've done a year plus and you know you're probably right in the shit, so what difference will a little while longer make? Then you wake up and realise you've been a tit and face up to getting yourself sorted out.

    Thanks
    I'm curious, why did he overstay.

    This is they key, not only two years overstay but no reporting of residence either.

    Opinion, he could not have forgotten two years.

    I dont know the exact quote, but there has been and is an ongoing effort to take care of this problem. It was highlighted in the Post a few to 5 months ago.

    Wish him luck but i would say the guy has a problem I forgot, is not going to work even here in the LOS.

    For some unexplained reason, Thailand will not charge for the first day of overstay. They only start counting from the second day. Overstay in Thailand : Visa overstay in Thailand and Thai law
    Usually though when you overstay for one day, it doesn’t carry a fine with it. The fine of 500 baht per day of overstay only begins after the second day,

    They charge the first day on land borders, not flights out of the country.

    Only at an airport. Reason being that you could have a flight in the early hours of the morning and so be overstayed due to the check in times of your flight.

    Why does, failure to report every 90 days carry a minimum 2,000 Baht fine when overstay carries a minimum 500 Baht ? I would have thought opposite.

    It doesn't say that in the link I posted. In fact it doesn't define. What if you caught a bus that didn't get you to the border in time ? Or the border closed at a specific time ?
    Death is natures way of telling you to slow down.

    Then you pay.

    Just because you found some link to some obscure site with very few facts doesn't mean it is gospel.

    A grace period of one day is permitted if exiting via an international airport, if over a land crossing then no grace period is given.

    He spent 3 days in Jomtien immigration cell,was transfered to Pattaya police cells spent 4 days there.Went to court can't remember his exact sentence was either 3 or 4 weeks in Nong Palai.Sent back to Pattaya police cells a few more days there,transfered to Bangkok IDC 1week there.He had not contacted his family in Germany for many years German embassy contact his daughter she sent over his flight money off he went.
    He was not blacklisted.

    He sold his decent motorbike he had stored in Germany,got a job and now spends time working in Germany,and living in Isaan.

    I worked for a charity so got to know a few people in trouble in Thailand.
    Some it worked out for,1 died in IDC another went back to blighty,on to China he died there.Btw he was on a small drugs charge and was blacklisted for 2 years.
    A few others have broken hearts their tilacs blew them out,they never returned.

    I'll drink to most things, but I draw a line at a grown man having to be bailed out of a Pattaya police cell by his daughter because he could not afford his flight home.
