      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

Passport control... at Exit

Recommended Posts

Oukiva

Hi,

I took a plane at about 10am this morning at Bangkok. Not a big crowd at this hour, but immigration control was unusually slow. When arrived my turn, I saw the officer looking many times his computer and search/check probably all pages of my passport???

I am on a "Retirement extension" for 3+ years already, with a Re-entry Permit when I exit. It's usually fast and no problem at all. This time many questions. "Retired" was not enough as an answer. What you do of your days? Where do you get your money from?... It stopped when he asked if I could speak Thai and was convinced by my rather long Thai answer :)

Now what's happening? I heard many times about questions to "tourists" when entering, but never to people on 1-year extension when exiting???

 

 

PS: Now stopover at Moscow waiting for my fly to France. The night is falling but I arrived soon enough for the nice view of Moscow covered with snow. Not something I often see in Pattaya ;)

It's probably just a one-off. I'd only be concerned if it happened multiple times. He backed off as soon as he thought you were legitimate.

Scumbag

Probably just an over-zealous/bored immigration officer. On entry a couple of days ago I didn't get one question despite being in Thailand almost all of the time over the past 14 months or so.
