Visa exempt and overstay


Recommended Posts

If you enter Thailand on visa exempt and leave on the day after the printed admitted until date via the airport, is it true they will just waive the fee and not put a overstay stamp in your passport? 

 

I don't plan on ever overstaying but someone told me this today and it doesnt seem right to me, I thought that they only waived it if for example your admitted unit date is say 30th Oct and you have a red eye flight in the early hours of the 31st Oct.

If you leave from either airport in Bangkok with a one day overstay you will not be fined for a one day overstay.

Some odd airports and border crossings might fine you.

I was once (2015 I think), by only about 6 hours (early morning flight out) and yes, no fine but did get an overstay stamp, which of course I completely ignored, but undoubtedly was entered into their computer.

New passport now, no stamp and IOs have never hassled me about it either.

I imagine if you accumulate several overstays they may get a bit snooty.

I had a 2am flight at BKK in 2019 that made me over stay by a day. I tried to get through immigration before midnight but couldn't get through before 12:30. They pulled me to the side to get a different stamp but it didn't say overstay. They didn't fine me nor did they say anything.
