Moroccan arrested at Suvarnabhumi didn't have the money to pay fine after 300 day overstay


Recommended Posts

Out of money on his way to Russia? Not very intelligent.

Better fly to Berlin, speak out loudly "ASYLUM" when passing the German immigration and then get cashed out welfare three monthin advance on the day of arrival..

Was that really the smartest move by airport immigration?  This guy presumably had a valid flight ticket and was about to leave Thailand.  Without any money to pay his overstay fine, the Thai governme

They should have waved him goodbye with the ban BUT It would involves logic Not a Immigration or even Thai strong point

Given there has been a visa amnesty for god knows how long, meaning his sin was minimal, detaining him rather than let him go on his way really wasn't smart, but then this is immigration we are talkin

So that everyone will then overstay their visas a year or more and then expect to just waltz on out of the country? If he had the money for a flight to Russia...he has (or can get) 20k to pay his fine.

500b a day fine?

Will the Moroccan be marinated? Deep fried, or basted over a spit? 

 

Everything is a circus here, military decorations, and lots of them, just for showing up, or an institutional anniversary, jump wings for playing on a flying-fox contraption on a staff day out, etc etc etc.

Rumour has it they are commissioning their own version of the Victoria Cross, it will be issued for winning an argument with an irate departing tourist, and struck from the hulls of the Chinese Subs, when they break down in six months never to sail again, or when they crash them into Bali Hai pier.

You would have thought they would have picked it up at one of his 90-day checks.  This is surely exactly the kind of situation they're designed to prevent.

It should be that way but i suspect it's just another revenue source.

Letting him leave without squeezing out money of him for his heinous crime of overstaying? Not the Thai way...

I know this has been happening as long as tourists have been coming to Thailand, but as highlighted by the Hungarian woman on a 10 year overstay - Have the immigration service no shame, every time they go through this public display does it not also display their incompetence in doing their job? Hey, look at us, we let this guy walk around for a year on an overstay and the only reason we caught him is because he handed himself in at the airport.

So what do you want the Thais to do? Making it the same as North Korea for us,  check the foreigners' papers all the time? I personally don't want to deal with the police and the immigration unless I want to do this myself.

Burt then they don't get to point with sticks and use a microphone to indicate bad man.  Look at how at attention they all are... and boots so shiny.

Lock this 23 y/o in the IDC, serving him meals that would make Oliver Twist say "Uh, no thanks" and see how fast he comes up with the 20k.

Yes, I just want to know which family member of a high ranked officer in the RTP who owns the company that creates them?

Of course he would be arrested elsewhere if doing the same number. As for the PR story, will likely be picked up by the Morocco press. The alternative might have been him returning home celebrating his good fortune for others to try on.

10 months keeping a low profile? He's got money. Trouble is, the people it belongs to found out where he is, and  are breathing down his neck. So he banks it, and books the first flight out he can get, meaning to contact the bank on arrival.

But, Immigration nab him, and now the money's owners know where he is. So he sits in nick, wondering what kind of a deal he can make with the boys in brown.

More next week.

Maybe tell the boys at the Thai immigration, that there are countries without any immigration on exiting the country. These countries could not care less and in a case like the Moroccon - good riddance. If they look for someone, then they access the PNL (passenger name list) as if a culprit travels with a fake passport under a different name, the immigration might be fooled as much as the airline carrying such people out of a country. 

What is there to prove by the boys in brown; if they would have been really on top of their job, they would have started "hunting" for him in droves 299 days ago already - or thereafter every 90 days 😉😉😉

I think the only reasons for the 90 report is powertrips and the dislike of expats.

Biometrics confirmed the details in his passport that he had overstayed 300 days

Why do they need Biometrics, are the ink stamps and computer records of Immigration not to be trusted.

As with LHR just boarding card 'bar code' scanned at gate, no queues at any departing immigration.

Does anyone remember what happened if you got to the airport and didn't have 500B for the departure tax, back in the day?

 

I only every paid it once on my first visit, but I still kept 500B at the back of my wallet for a couple of subsequent visits for fear of not having the money to leave.

I remember it well.  Always kind of a PITA to make sure you had it with you.

You still pay it every time, It is included in your ticket price!

Yes, I know. 

 

I was just wondering if anyone knew what happened if you were 500B short at the departure gate.
