Phuket Immigration Tourist Service Point opens in Patong

PHUKET: Phuket Immigration’s Tourist Service Point in Patong re-opened on Thursday to a flurry of activity, with about 20 expats and tourists taking advantage of the immigration services provided.

“Most of them came to do their 90-day resident reporting and for extensions to permits-to-stay,” said Patong Immigration’s Capt Angkarn Yasanop, who now heads the office with a staff of five.

The office, located on Thaweewong Road next to the Patong Tourist Police Volunteers office [map here], was expected to re-open 18 months ago, but unforeseen complications in carrying out renovations caused lengthy delays (story here).

Now, the office is open 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.

“We provide 90-day resident reporting and permit-to-stay extensions, and we receive notifications of foreigners committing offenses in the area,” Capt Angkarn said.

“Hotels and other guest accommodation establishments can also submit their daily reports of guest check-ins here instead of travelling to the main Immigration office in Phuket Town,” he added.

“If you have any questions, please stop by our office. We can also be reached at 076-340477,” Capt Angkarn said.
