    Changes to the queue system at Chaengwattana Immigrations

    This is only for people who live in Bangkok but it is quite a significant change..

    Starting Sept 1st, Chaengwattana Immigrations will stop giving queue tickets out at 3:30 although they will still close at 4:30 (or when they take care of every queue ticket outstanding).

    They're doing this because some of those areas weren't finished serving customers until a full 3 HOURS after Immigrations really closed!

    A friend went for his ED visa extension a week or so ago, he got there at 2PM or so and got his extension stamped into his passport at 7:45PM!! Then he had to walk all the way to the mouth of Chaengwattana Soi 7 because the free shuttle stops and all the taxis leave that area in front of Immigrations when the government complex closes.

    Anyway, here's a pic I took of the announcement they have taped up all over the immigrations office (sorry it's blurry)

    Makes perfect sense really. Though they may still find they have too many people to do before 16:30. People will just see 15:30 as the new 16:30.

    PS - I have re-posted this, as it is important info and should be spread as wide as possible.

    Hope that is ok :-)

    Go ahead and post it where ever you can.

    I put it on a few forums, but some popular ones I'm banned from <-go figure.. I did send emails to their Mods asking it be posted. We'll see..

    Thanks for letting us know this information. I always presumed they kicked you out at 4:30pm even if you had a queue ticket. Nice of them to let you stay. I wonder if they get paid overtime.

    Oh, I did find it on the Bangkok Immigrations website too.

    It's just so few people go there I doubted it'd get any publicity.

    Here's the piece from their website;

    And the pic it links to (which is far clearer than mine);
