    It would appear the operative term in the article is these penalties are being "considered".. This certainly means they are NOT laws (yet)!!

    These proposed penalties have been posted at most immigration offices country wide for a LONG time (I think since about July of 2014). Thai Immigration in Phuket even had the WRONG terms posted on their website stating a lifetime ban for overstays of more than 5 years. (They may still have it posted I dunno).

    Here's a pic of the banner which has been outside the Thai Immigration office at Chaengwattana for a good while now;

    And here's a screen shot of the same terms from the paper we sign when we receive a yearly extension of stay in Bangkok.

    IF they're gonna enact these I believe it requires that it be posted in the Royal Gazette and then it becomes law so many days after it's first published. That's because overstay penalties are actual LAWS under the control of the MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) I think, NOT just a Police Order like the Immigration rules are for inside the country.
