Immigration office to reopen at Muang Thong Thani

The Immigration Bureau will open an office at Muang Thong Thani in Nonthaburi province from Monday, to relieve congestion at its government complex office on Chaeng Wattana Road.

The deputy commander of Immigration Division 1 said on Thursday that services would be available at the Central Investigation Bureau in Muang Thong Thani housing estate in Pak Kret district from July 13.

It will handle 90-day reports, accommodation reports under Section 38 (TM38) of the Immigration Act, and requests for short-stay extensions.

In March the Immigration Bureau opened an office at Muang Thong Thani, but it was closed when the Interior Ministry automatically extended stays for some categories of foreigners to July 31, to prevent crowding.

The Interior Ministry's extension would expire on July 31.

The Muang Thong Thani office would help the many foreigners still unable to return home because of the airport closures in many countries.
