More than 35,000 THB in fines for Visa Overstays! We know the rules.

You’re having the time of your life traveling around Thailand, visiting all the islands, having hot sex with lovely Thai girls (maybe even marrying one!), and enjoying all that this amazing country has to offer.

Suddenly, you reach into your backpack for a condom and find your passport that has been buried at the bottom of your backpack and notice your VISA stamp has already expired because you forgot to extend your thailand tourist visa

Maybe you already know that you’ve overstayed your visa in Thailand or you are worried about getting BANNED or KICKED OUT of the Kingdom. This DOES happen, so please read on.

Thailand is so beautiful… and there are so many reasons that foreigners want to stay longer than usual here. It’s also a place where lots of criminals like to live because they are not wanted in their own country, and these people do not like to follow the rules of any country. This is a pretty important factor as to why there’s so many different rules about how long you can stay in Thailand for. Most of the time, guys like me (white middle aged UK guy), overstay because we don’t want to leave yet and this is okay because Thailand knows that you want to stay!

How To Get Thailand Girl Number For Sex

Thailand girls love to meet after work (after bar fine)

I am guilty of overstaying 4 times in Thailand; my last overstay was 89 days over my permitted date. If I stayed one more day, and I would’ve had had some more serious problems that I will outline below.

How much did you overstay your Thai Visa?

How much time you have to wait before you can come back to Thailand:

90 Day Overstay1 Year Ban
1 Year Overstay5 Year Ban
3 Year Overstay5 Year Ban
5 Year Overstay10 Year Ban

It is not clear whether 90 or 91 days is the Overstay amount, but my last overstay was 89 Days and I was warned that if I tried to leave a few hours later, I would be BANNED for one year.

My Flight Is At 2AM Tomorrow But My Visa Finish Today??

You “exit” Thailand once you pass the Passport Control section of the Airport. This is when you get the STAMP in your passport that says you have exited the country. So you must get the stamp before 11:59pm. You may or may not have to pay 500 THB fine if you overstay by 1 day.

I Overstayed My Thailand Visa By 1 Day (My Visa Finished Yesterday!)

Thailand Visa Overstay 40 Days

You will pay 20,000 THB at the airport. This is the MAXIMUM fine for Visa Overstay in Thailand (less than 90 day overstay), so after you stay 40 days and you want to stay in Thailand, you can stay until 89 days in Thailand and you will pay the same 20,000 THB.

What if I am poor and not have 20,000 Thai Baht??

If you do not have enough money for the Thailand Visa overstay fine when you are at the airport, you will miss your flight and the Passport Officer will give your boarding pass back to the airline.

You will not be arrested if you tell the officer that you will go to ATM and book another flight today.

When I overstayed my Visa and tried to get onto my AirAsia flight at Phuket Internation Airport, the immigration officer did not let me through the checkpoint without paying. I missed my flight and booked a domestic flight to DMK airport in Bangkok. Nobody checked my visa for the domestic flight.

Will I Go To Jail If I Overstay My Thailand Visa?

If you do not have the money, and cannot get the money, you should ring your Consulate or Embassy and ask them if they can help you leave. Maybe they will borrow you some money, just don’t spend it on Thai girls!! If you are in this situation, you may have to go to Jail. It’s not that serious, many many people overstay in Thailand, so just talk to your consulate when you overstay. You may have to go to Court.

Will I get Caught Overstaying My Visa in Thailand?

If you are found by an immigration officer, or maybe the police bring you to an immigration officer, you will be penalized more than if you turn yourself into the passport control office.

Thailand Visa Overstay and Travel Insurance Valid?

You must check your travel insurance PDF policy file and find the word “Visa”. Most travel insurance company do NOT cover you when you have overstayed visa or have the “correct visa.” so don’t do any crazy activities when you are an illegal alien in Thailand.
