Assuming that you have already prepared all your documents for your travel and have already gone through the processes in the terminal, it is now time to present yourself to the officer and aim to get the stamp on your passport. Once you get the stamp, congratulations! You’ll now take your flight.
Secret: CONFIDENCE (don’t show them you are shaking, or worried, always absorb the idea that you are a tourist and you will tour. Not to find work or any other reasons. “I am a tourist”.
The first thing that you will be asked is to present your passport. After presenting, they will or might ask you the following questions: (Tip: Just answer the question being asked. No other words. The more you talk the more you commit mistakes)
1.Where are you going? (Thailand, or the country that you are going to)
2.What are you gonna do there? (tour, you can present your travel itinerary)
3.When are you coming back? (tell them the date of return. You can also present the round trip ticket).
4.Where are you going to stay? (I have booked a hotel for blah blah nights and blah blah days. Present them your booking confirmation)
5.How did you book this? (you can tell via credit card)
6.Is it your credit card? (Yes show them the card. No my sister’s, brother’s, etc)
7.Can I have your company ID? (present to them your Id) SELF EMPLOYED: Show them your proof.
8.How long have you been working here? (tell them the truth. Since you are employed I assume that you know everything about your position and company. They might ask some documents for confirmation, prepare your supporting documents, job agreement, etc)
9.Why are you travelling alone? (Give them reasons that will make them believe you. “oh ive been working so hard, I believe it’s time now to reward myself; Oh I enjoy travelling alone, I have to have peace of mind. Etc. Any reasons that will convince them) this portion with the immigration officer will be easier if you are travelling with someone. But if not, it’s okay.
10. Do you have any friends in your destination? ( I don’t know what this for, but I answered no. maybe they might think that you will follow your friend who is working in your country destination.)
You might be asked of other questions. But if you are really travelling to tour, there’s nothing to be afraid of. However, if you have the intention to work by being a tourist, well you really have to make sure you have all the documents needed. Good luck. God bless!
Once you are done with the immigration official, your passport will be stamped with a logo. Then you will proceed to the passengers waiting gate for your boarding.
Have a safe and happy trip!
