90 Day Reporting at Immigration Pattaya

Staying in Thailand longer than 90 days ?  If so you will need to report to immigration.

A foreigner must report within a 14 day window, 7 days before to 7 days after the 90 day period expires.

Failure to report, or failure to report within the specified time will result in a fine of bt2000, which rises to bt4000 if the foreigner is arrested.

A foreigner can notify immigration either in person, by authorising someone to report for them, or send the notification via registered mail.
