972 Days Overstay for Swedish National

A Swedish national identified as Mr. Francesco was arrested in Phuket, Thailand, for overstaying his visa by 972 days. The police became aware of him after a Phuket resident posted about him on the “Phuket Residents Seek Help” Facebook group.

The post alleged that the Swedish man had broken into a rental house after the homeowner had stopped allowing him to rent it. He had then allegedly threatened to return and kill the homeowner. After seeing the post, immigration police and tourist police launched an investigation.

Officers went undercover and found Mr. Francesco driving in the area. They revealed their identities and invited him for questioning. Initially, Mr. Francesco refused to step out of the car and did not have his passport with him.

Investigations revealed that Mr. Francesco had entered Thailand on a business visa on February 12, 2020, which allowed him to stay in the country until September 23, 2021. Following his arrest, he was sent to the inquiry officer at Chalong Police Station.
