Thailand’s Phetchaburi Immigration office is set to move to a new location next month. The office will move from its current location in Tha Yang to a new office in Cha-am, with the opening date scheduled for March 20, 2023.

The new location will be situated in Khao Yai sub-district, near Khao Nang Phanthurat Forest Park, and is expected to offer better facilities to both staff and visitors. The new building is modern, spacious, and better equipped to handle the growing number of applications and enquiries received by the agency.

The move is part of the agency’s efforts to improve services and provide better facilities to the public, Hua Hin Today reported.

While the move may cause some small disruptions to services for a short period, Phetchaburi Immigration has assured the public that it will do its best to minimise any inconvenience and ensure a smooth transition.

The public is advised to check the agency’s Facebook page or contact the office directly for any updates on the move and its impact on services.

The move to the new location is expected to improve the efficiency and speed of the agency’s services. Those who need to visit Phetchaburi Immigration can make appointments online.

Phetchaburi Immigration posted about the move on Facebook yesterday.

This news comes after the Thai e-visa system has been expanded and upgraded last month, so tourists from around the world would soon be able to apply for Thai visas more easily. The Foreign Ministry has been tasked with refining the e-visa system so that it can handle the very large number of tourists who want to use it.

The Foreign Ministry’s Trisulee Trisaranakul explained that the ministry has been told to expand the capacity of the Thai e-visa system so that it can deal with all tourists wherever they may come from, with the same standards of service.
