Irishman Tells Thai Immigration F**K You! They Tell Him Get Out!
From Pattaya One News is the story of an Irishman who showed up at Chonburi Immigration to extend his visa while on overstay was arrested and told to leave Thailand within 24 hours after telling immigration officers willing to help him ‘F**k You’. The story goes that the 37-year-old Irishman had done a visa run and only got a 15 day visa exemption as he entered over land, and not 30 days as he thought if he’d flown into the country.
He felt it was an injustice he had to hand over 3,900 Baht for overstaying his visa and went off on the immigration woman behind the desk who was willing to help. His outburst ended with the hothead walking away and telling the female immigration officer “F**k you”. Other officers on duty weren’t letting him away with such disrespect to a coworker and arrested him on the spot on charges of overstay. He was told to leave Thailand within 24 hours or he’d be prosecuted, deported and blacklisted for five years.
