BANGKOK, December 17, 2010 by TTRweekly 

Effective 16 December, foreigners can submit an application for a re-entry permit when departing from Suvarnabumi Airport.Passport Control at the Suvarnabumi Airport

Immigration Division 2 allows foreigners, who have to leave the Kingdom before their visa expires, to submit a request for a re-entry permit on their departure. The application must be filed at the Immigration Bureau east zone in the departure hall.

Previously the re-entry permit was renewable at all immigration checkpoints except Suvarnabhumi Airport unless it was an emergency case.

Once they have filed the application at the airport, foreigners still need to submit an e-mail inquiry one day in advance and then on the following day visit the immigration offices in Soi Suan Plu, or the Chaeng Wattana Government Centre, to submit photographs and make payment. The fee is Bt1,000 for single re-entry and Bt3,800 for multiple.

For more information, contact Suvarnabhumi’s departure immigration at 02 137 0226 or 1178.
