PHUKET CITY: The Phuket Immigration Office is to extend its service hours by opening Saturdays from 8:30 am until midday and staying open during the lunch hour on weekdays.
Pol Capt Krissarat Nusen of the Phuket Immigration Office told the Gazette that the new hours for the office, in Phuket City, came into force on Saturday (June 18).
“From Mondays to Fridays we will now stay open from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm,” he said.
Phuket Immigration also issued a reminder to visiting captains and crews of foreign vessels that they must post a redeemable 20,000 baht bond before leaving the country by any means other than the vessel on which they entered the country.
Failure to do so will result in the offender being added to an immigration blacklist.
