Takahiro Nakahara, 76, had been living in the kingdom since 2000 on a tourist visa he only extended once. 

He had overstayed 6,734 days and will now be deported. 

He was arrested yesterday afternoon at a house in Moo 3 of Nam Kor sub-district.

He originally came to Thailand on 29th September 2000 and subsequently extended his tourist visa until 27th of December of the same year. 

He was never seen by immigration again. 

Naew Na did not report any personal details about Mr Nakahara – just that he had been handed over to the Lomsak police and faces deportation. 

The media said that immigration in Phetchabun were continuing to look for illegal immigrants, illegal workers and home owners and hotels not reporting foreigners staying in their properties. 

They issued a 1178 hotline number for people to report transgressions of the immigration laws.
