Today, the Chonburi immigration office at Jomtien Soi 5 launched a redesigned, customer-friendly service for foreigners to reduce waiting times and lines. The former on-site parking lot has been transformed into two air-conditioned glass structures, “A” and “B”. The changes occur after many years of congestion, standing outside in the heat, etc.
Foreign nationals who are there to complete their 90-day address confirmation continue to report to Building “A” without first registering. Prior to receiving further assistance, all other immigration clients must now report to Building “B” to receive a ticket number. The ticket number will send them to the immigration main building (for all visa renewals, for instance) or Building “A” (for TM30 address registration), depending on the exact service they require.
On the first morning, foreigners’ early reactions were favorable. British expat Dave Miller said, “I wanted a certificate of residence to apply for a driving license and waiting comfortably in the airconditioned area until my queue number was called.” The adjacent legal offices still provide photocopying and picture services. Separately, the Swiss embassy in Bangkok has revealed that a Pattaya consulate will open later this month at a complex of buildings next to Jomtien immigration.
