Immigration control in Thailand border

Hi!

Does anyone know if there's a passport control office in Satun (Thailand), if I cross the border by ferry, from Pulau Langkawi (Malaysia)?

Thanks!!

Yes. There is passport control and immigration in Satun and you can go directly from Langkawi by boat.

Hi,

to post #2- can be said both,depends ferry comes in at what time,as I remember Satun Tammalang Pier has some working hours stipulated. So it is said both as immigration process can be done at Tammalang pier,or if it is already close, Satun town immigration.

Make sure on your arrival card, you had already make note beforehand of skipper(in this case the ferry operator ) and vessel number/code.

Thank you for the info mKiara. I read in an Indonesian travel forum how this traveler cannot find the immigration post. Foolishly he did not get stamped in and got bad problems leaving Thailand at Dannok for Malaysia.

Well, now you know.

bad problems in Thailand= mai pen rai-- no problem, can be settled one--let them make a big fuss, you act cool, they will sort it out.

Well, as King MOngkut in that movie Anna and KIng told Anna " When a woman who has much to say says nothing, her silence can be deafening. "

So say nothing and your silence can be so deafening, they will sort you out...but one must give utmost respect to them.
