    Crack down on overstay

    I think many will have seen this coming since before the coup was declared, nevertheless it has begun:

    Hope this doesn't catch out any BM's

    Old news - it was first published a year ago, notices were put up at Immi offices, expats had to sign forms that they understood the penalties, and nothing happened.
    Now it is being considered again ...

    If any long overstayer isn't aware of the need to exit, pay the fine and comeback with a "clean sheet" NOW - he is too dumb to live away from Mommy's basement.

    Yeah I'm chatting with someone that this was a foregone conclusion when the rumours of the coup became a reality. It was just a matter of time, and the Erawan bombing likely pushed up the pace.

    This has nothing to do with the coup and probably less to do with BKK recent bombings. I wonder if you even know who was responsible for the latter and why Thai authority's treated it as non terrorist?

    FWIW the overstay crackdown has been on the cards even longer than Zab recalls.
    Cheers, Rob.
