Immigration Clearance A visa normally provides clearance for a foreigner to enter Thailand and to remain in country for a specified period, given the constraints associated with the type of visa issued. A few of these constraints include but are not limited to:
- The time frame for entry
- The amount of time the visa holder is permitted to stay in the country
- Prohibition against employment A visa does not necessarily guarantee that a foreigner will be granted entry by immigration authorities at the port of entry. These officials make the final determination whether entry will be allowed, and in some cases they may even cancel a visa if they determine that the foreigner may not abide by the activity restrictions placed on the type of visa held. Assistance of an experience immigration lawyer may be needed in such cases. If a foreigner is found to have entered Thailand without a valid visa they may be detained, fined and deported from the country.
If someone engages in activity not covered by the type of visa they hold, they can also be considered in violation of their visa, fined and possibly deported. Individuals facing these situations benefit from the assistance of an immigration lawyer. In other instances an attorney may be needed to assist with immigration clearance issues such as problems arising when the foreigner attempts to leave the Kingdom.
