No more Out/In stamps on Thai-Cambo border – for anyone | Samui Times
  • follow us in feedly understands that as of Sept 18th, Out/In stamps will not be issued at some checkpoints on the Thai-Cambodian border, even if you are in possession of a valid visa.

no more boarder bounceImmigration officials at Ban Laem/Daun Lem, Ban Pakard/Phsa Prum and Aranyaprathet/Poipet seem to be taking a similar stance to that of officials at the Phu Nam Ron border in Kanchanaburi, who have not been issuing visa stamps since last weekend.

This latest informaton comes from a representative at who informed of the following:

“It is our understanding that all check points at Thai-Cambodian border will also limit the OUT/IN with valid visa. Until the situation is clear, at least up to 30th September, we will stop our daily service to Cambodia.

For the time being we continue to offer our service to Vientiane/Laos in order for you to obtain Single, Double Tourist Visa or Single Entry Non Immigrant Visa. FYI, The Thai-Consulate in Savannakhet/Laos, is currently over limit due the huge number of Laotian trying to obtain Visa.”

If you do need to complete an Out/In it is suggested that you either leave Thailand by air or go to Malaysia or Laos, where Immigration staff seem to be issuing stamps as normal.

A report on Wednesday confirmed that the Thai/Malaysian border is also operating as normal and is yet to receive any reports from anyone encountering problems having completed an Out/In by air.

Ranong seems to be issuing stamps as normal and there have been no reports of problems at Surin and Sisaket border checkpoints, despite being on the Thai-Cambodian border.

It appears this ‘crackdown’ or sudden change of policy only affects those border checkpoints in the central region which fall under the jurisdiction of Immigration Division 3. These border checkpoints are also the closest crossings from Bangkok and the Eastern Seaboard – areas where there are large numbers of migrant workers from Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.
