Bangkok - An overstay can be cleared at the airport on departure from Thailand. When processing through immigration, the overstay will be noticed and the person taken to a desk to pay the appropriate fine. Fines can also often be paid at any immigration bureau. While an overstay of one day incurs no charge, after that it is a fine of Bt500 per day. The maximum overstay fine is Bt20,000. Foreign children are subject to a fine only if they are over the age of seven.

Voluntarily declaring or 'surrendering' yourself to immigration to settle an overstay fine seldom presents any real problem. But the story can be a very different one if Thai police or other authorities come across a foreigner who has overstayed his/her visa and not yet addressed the situation voluntarily.

This can see the offender being detained at an Immigration Detention Center for a number of days while their case is processed. Although not always the case, needless to say it is an experience most people would rather do without.
"Thailand is a wonderful and very much accommodating destination for tourists, working expatriates and other foreigners, ...
... but it is wise for them to make sure their time in the kingdom is always legal" said Apisakde Kongkangwanchoke, spokesman for BSA Law.

"Granted this can sometimes prove a bit complicated or time consuming, so it can be beneficial to seek the assistance of a Thai law firm or other legal service in Thailand. Many of these companies offer a Thai visa service, as well as advice on various issues such as accounting, business investment, tax consulting and even starting a business in Thailand."

Every now and then an overstay case can lead to the offending foreigner being added to the so-called 'black list' and subsequently banned from ever entering Thailand again. Once on this list it is rather difficult to be removed from it.
As BSA Law's Apisakde wisely suggests, foreigners are well advised to stay within the legal boundaries of their visa and in the case they do overstay, sort it out rather than waiting to get caught.
