Rises in Immigration fees put on hold
PHUKET: The Phuket Immigration Office, like all other Immigration offices in Thailand, has rescinded steep rises in visa and other fees which were introduced recently. The rises, which quadrupled the existing fees, were contained in a new immigration law brought into force on November 12. However, a subsequent notice from Immigration headquarters in Bangkok on November 29 ordered the new fees to be put on hold until further notice in light of “inappropriate timing and the current situation in Thailand”. When the new fees are approved, they will be as follows (current fee in brackets). 1. Visa on entry Single entry: 2,000 (500) Double or multiple entry: 10,000 (500) 2. Fee for appeal against refusal of a visa: 2,000 (500) 3. Application fee for extension of stay: 2,000 (500) 4. Fee for appeal against refusal of extension of stay: 2,000 (500) 5.
