Overstay in Thailand

Thai EmbassyIf you have a visa in Thailand and it has expired then you are very likely going to get blacklisted in Thailand. Thai Immigration has again published the length of blacklisting for Thailand for those who overstay their visa while in Thailand. Note that you would need to speak to an attorney in Thailand if you are on overstay as the punishment differs as explained below.

If you surrender to Thai immigration in Thailand while on overstay be this on a tourist visa, marriage visa or retirement visa, then the punishment is as follows.

  • Overstay of more than 90 days – 1 year blacklisting
  • Overstay of more than 1 year – 3 year blacklisting
  • Overstay of more than 3 years – 5 year blacklisting
  • Overstay of more than 5 years – 10 year blacklisting

The above would be if you surrender to Thai immigration with your overstay. If however they catch you while on overstay then the punishment is even more harsher. This can be seen below:

  • Overstay of less than 1 year – 5 year blacklisting
  • Overstay of more than 1 year – 10 year blacklisting

If you have overstayed your visa while in Thailand then speak to an attorney in Thailand for more assistance as you can see the blacklisting is much longer if you are caught by police or Thai immigration with your overstay.
