Phuket Immigration closed during holiday

PHUKET: The Phuket Provincial Immigration Office (PPIO) will be closed for a week during the upcoming Songkran public holiday, the Gazette has learned.

The Phuket Town Immigration office will be closed from April 13 until April 18 and any foreigners who need to register with immigration during that period are urged to do so by April 12 or on April 19.

Immigration staff confirmed that if a foreigner’s scheduled visit to the PPIO falls during the public holiday, he or she could visit on the next working day without penalty – “but only on that first day after the holiday.” In this case April 19.

Phuket Immigration is open from 8:30am to 4:30pm, with a one-hour break for lunch starting at 12 noon.
