Looking THANI: An Hindu man was detained for overstaying his visa after attempting to use a document to pretend to be an immigrant from Myanmar in order to obtain permission to stay and function in Thailand.
The Surat Thani immigration office’s director, Pol Col Naruewat Phutthawiro, announced on Saturday that he had mandated an exploration into foreigners who had overstayed their visa on the three well-known traveler islands of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Hoh Tao.
According to information provided by the municipal immigration company, some Indian citizens may have used fictitious identification to pose as immigrant workers from Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. By taking advantage of a 2023 government solution that relaxed rules for immigrant workers from these three countries who were already in Thailand, they sought permission to stay and work in the country. They are permitted to stay longer and carry on working officially in the nation thanks to the solution.
A 36-year-old person named Jay Ka Mar, who identified himself as a Myanmar immigrant worker, applied at the Surat Thani emigration office on Friday to prolong his stay and continue working in accordance with the cabinet resolution from October 3 of last year.
The results of a biometric fingerprint scan revealed that Sanjay Singh, 40, an American national who had previously entered Thailand for business on December 11, 2019, and was authorized to be there until December 6, 2022, had fingerprints that matched his.  ,
Sanjay Singh was identified as the claimant claiming to be a Myanmar immigrant worker when immigration officers checked access data.
According to the information, the Hindu man arrived in Thailand on December 11, 2019, and for business purposes, he was permitted to remain until December 6, 2022.  ,
No information of an expansion or withdrawal, according to the officers, showed a 423-day sdk.
Singh admitted during questioning that he had used the false identity to avoid immigration offenses related to the validity of his card.  ,
Before turning him over to the authorities at Bo Phud place for legal actions, the imprisoning group accused him of overstaying.
