Phuket Immigration moves to temporary offices | Thaiger

PHUKET CITY: From Monday, the Phuket Provincial Immigration Office (PPIO) will take up temporary residence in the old wooden Marine Police building across the road from its traditional site on Phuket Rd.

PPIO Inspector Pol Lt Col Pipat Pongpan told the Gazette that the move is to allow the old PPIO main building, which was built 23 years ago, to be pulled down and a new building to be erected in its place.

The new building will be in Sino-Portuguese style and will be much bigger, he added. “It will look like two buildings together but will be just one, with three floors at the front and four floors at the back,” he said.

“Trangthong A Tree Commerce Ltd Part has been contracted to construct the new building. Work should be completed within 360 days, with a budget of 12 million baht,” Col Pipat explained.

“Foreigners should have no problem finding our new offices as we have a sign posted out front saying, ‘Temporary Office of Phuket Immigration’.

“All the usual Immigration services will be available at the PPIO’s temporary offices, and the PPIO will keep the same hours: from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday,” he added.
