Bangkok – Immigration Police today, June 11th, announced the arrest of 14 foreign nationals for reportedly overstaying in Thailand in Northeastern provinces, with the longest overstay of more than 7 years!

 

The capture was conducted as part of a proactive approach to prevent the spread of Covid-19 upon migrant workers and foreign nationals in the areas, Immigration Chief Sompong Chingduang stated.

 

Officials had been actively asking for passports and identification of foreigners in the area to ensure nobody had crossed borders illegally, potentially skirting Covid-19 quarantine rules, which led to the overstay discoveries.

Fools! Especially that a**hole with a 7.5 year overstay. Obviously likes living in Thailand, probably will never be allowed back in again.

Maybe a soccer playing Cameroonian who taught English  with an American accent ?😂

My Thai daughter had a teacher from Cameroon who was teaching the English course many years ago in Kumphawapi at the school we had her going to.  He spoke very good British English.

I don't doubt it as some learn their English from English people rather than others. I worked with many people in my time and the Sri Lankans, Iranian and Iraqi's spoke almost perfect English too. Mentioned in another post that in 1980  went to Albania, only for a few hours. At the time it was one of the most closed nations in the world. The little kids, guess around 5 -7 kept running up to us saying  things like good morning, how are you, which country are your from ? I was totally amazzed. Here they were, almost cut of from the outside world , poor as poor could be living in absolute poverty, yet they spoke good English. When I asked our Albanian guide/minder he would only say "our country wants everybody to learn" so never did find out quite how they did that.

One would imagine that are thousands of over stayers in this country and that is being conservative with the numbers, many on fake documents, so catching 14 of them is not a cause for celebrations...

What fake documents do you suggest they're on?

Does that mean the 90 day reporting system is broken in the NorthEast? (As well!)

I would hardly call it a system...

Was the overstating Cameron national playing soccer or was he a English teacher.  

 

He couldn't leave the country as he had so many romance scams running.

Exactement.

 

The "Big Joke" effect?

 

Thailand, where doing your job, occasionally is vinyl chart display time.

 

Begs the questions, what were you doing for the last 7 years? How good a job are you doing to begin with?

 

 

I think these pressers are for the bosses.

Quite. And how difficult would it be to "track down" the visa agents who offer extensions for people who don't meet the legal requirements when said agents openly advertise their dodgy services?

That's if he ever gets back home.

He will be put in IDC and the only airlines that cannot refuse to take him are airlines from his own country. No Cameroon airline flies here. This means he will have to make a stop in transit in another country. He has to write a request to this airport and they have to agree.

Also, it is unlikely that any other airline will fly him out of Bangkok. The pilot will only be told that he is a criminal and the pilots usually refuse.

I spent a couple of days in IDC and most of the Africans had been there years and had given up hope.

Disagree, with Thailand's borders I'm quite sure the Africans and Indians (10 of them) will just add a letter to their name and walk straight back in,
