Passport Checks Tonight Around Asoke And Lower Sukhumvit

If the information I’ve recieved is correct, officers from Thonglor Police Station will be carrying out passport checks tonight, Friday 18th March, around the Asoke and lower Sukhumvit area looking for visa overstayers.

From what I have been told there will be checkpoints setup in the following locations: Sukhumvit Soi 22 & Soi 23, and on Asoke near the Sino-Thai Tower. It is possible there will be others dotted around the Thonglor district.

The best advice I can give is to carry your passport if you plan on hitting that part of town tonight or at least a colour copy or clear photo on your phone of your main passport page and current visa stamp.

I don’t believe the purpose of the operation is any kind of shakedown, police are only looking for overstayers ahead of the new blacklisting rules coming into force on Sunday.

If you are all legal then nothing to worry about.


This information is UNCONFIRMED as of 4.40pm – I decided to take the unusual step of sharing an unconfirmed story as the info came from a reliable source and to give everyone a heads up if the spot checks do go ahead.

UPDATE 6pm: It would appear the passport checks for overstayers are going ahead tonight from 10.30pm onward
