  • (1888PressRelease) April 10, 2014 - Foreigners in Bangkok who need to visit Thai immigration for the purpose of 90 day report, Thailand work permit, visa or other requirements must still do so at these temporary offices located on Suksawat and Ladprao Roads.

    The permanent immigration office at the Government Complex Center remains closed.

    A message posted on the Immigration Division 1 website (http://bangkok.immigration.go.th) advises that the temporary offices will remain in operation until the situation in Bangkok improves.

    The address of these two offices is as follows:

    Major Hollywood Suksawat - 1st Floor, Suksawat Road, Ratburana, Bangkok

    Imperial World Ladprao - 5th Floor, Ladprao Road, Wang Tong Lang, Bangkok

    Service hours are 10.30 am to 6.30 pm from Monday to Friday. The offices are closed on official holidays. The Immigration Division 1 website features maps to these locations and also lists contact telephone numbers for further information.

    The One-Stop Service Center for Visas and Work Permits situated within the Chamchuri Square building on Phayathai Road in Pathumwan is operating as per normal. Service hours here are from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Friday (closed on official holidays).

    BSA Law, a leading international law firm in Thailand, suggests those who have to visit either of the temporary immigration offices in relation to a 90 day report, the Thai visa service or for any particular reason, should allow themselves the same amount of time they normally would to visit the Government Complex Center in Chaeng Wattana. Possibly more.

    "Even though the offices on Suksawat and Ladprao Roads are in locations which are closer to central Bangkok than the Chaeng Wattana office, these are operating on a temporary and much smaller scale", said BSA Law spokesman Apisakdi Kongkangwanchoke.

    "Depending on how many other people happen to be visiting these temporary immigration offices at the same time, taking this approach could prove the least hassle-free and least time-consuming."
