  • Take a pass to make a call, get in touch with English language exams, study abroad, and learn more about the Ministry of government Affairs. Is there a place where you can stay near the hotel? Palace The bus pass by taxi to Don Mueang Airport is easy to call.

  • I came today in the morning to extend my visa by 30 days, it took me about two hours. The immigration office is located at the second floor of the building. On the ground floor there’s a mall, where you can get passport copies and photos for about 100bht. Overall it was a good experience, all members of staff were polite and gentle. I’m leaving 4 stars only because it’s quite far from central Bangkok.
  • It is a bit of an effort getting here if you live in Bangkok area. The easiest and most practical option is to go to the Mo Chit BTS station and head to the area where the vans stop over. There are barkers for the van and you can ask them which one goes to the immigration and they will direct you to the van which costs 25 baht. It takes around 30 minutes to reach the government complex and you will have to go down at the entrance where you can wait for a free bus or take a motorbike for 25 baht. Inside the immigration area is quite vast and it has a lot of establishments like food court, restaurants, small shops, banks, and etc. I came for my 90 day report and I think 4 counters are not enough to cater for the dense number of people coming. The process improved since the last time I came here but they could still improve the speed especially they were only able to attend to 61 people in two hours.
  • The thing I hate about this place is getting there!!! You'd better improve on the transportation that gets to the place. It's too far and buses are not everywhere!! It's a punishment just to go get some documents there!! 166 bus waiting time could be up to an hour!! Taxi fee is at a minimum of 300 and it doesn't include toll fees!!! People who go there are already exhausted from the travel time... it's a problem getting there and another getting out!! You can't process other things because of this... every single time I go there the problem remains the same!!!!!!!!!
  • Service is good and lot of people getting their Visa Extension. Unfortunately Pakistani passport holders can get tourist Visa extension of only one week while other countries get one month extension. Shah Mehmood Qureshi have to work on it....
  • Located at Chaengwattana area I arrived here by van from chatuchak MRT or Mo chit BTS train the fare is 25 baht they called this place Suan Ratchakan in thai language upon drop off at the Complex road there is a free shuttle bus or either take a taxi motorcycle cost 25 baht going to immigration building. foreigners come here for Visa Extention of 30 days stay for tourist while every 3 months appearance for those handling a working visa and paying penalty for overstay tourist cost 500 a day, modest outfit or just wear a pleasing dress, bring passport, passport photo and recent visa photocopy lastly fill up immigration form for acquiring tourist visa for 1,900 baht. This building is huge containing other goverment office such as Bureau of Valued Property, Human Rights Commision Office, Justice Affairs Office and more,,,, Restaurants, banks, coffe shop,pharmacy, clothes retail shops, house or vehicle key duplication, bag and shoes repair,post office, economical Foodcourt, 7eleven, tops market are on the ground floor. Note: Upon doing a visa, wait your turn of rendering your documents even there are 25 people ahead of your queue number cause once you left and missed your number there is no back priviledge, meaning you need to get a new queue number. The story will be,,,, the first became the last while the last become the first. No matter if your queue number is 200 or more, dont worry, they worked overtime. (after 16:30 closing office hours) Please press the like button! however you find this informative.
