Last month I read some reports on huge waiting lines for immigration.
So, Would be interested to see what the expected time to get through the immigration is depending on season, weekday and time.



Please report

Date, Time, waiting time

I assume you are referring to Swampy.

 

Yesterday my 'plane landed at 15:15 and I was in the taxi by 15.45. (Only hand luggage)

I'm not sure how anyone could answer your question without being there 24 hours for a day. And even then it could

be different each day. Not all flights to/from BKK are every day.

See answer from Daveman. My assumption is now; if I land next week Thursday 15:15 I get through the check within the same time...
Just interesting to see if some days/time are worse. If the experience shows that 17-19 Friday's have 2 hour of waiting time one could think about getting a VIP service

If you are bothered about it fly business class or pay for fast track

Depends on the peak time for flights from China...otherwise my recent experiences have all been less than an hour, often less than 30 minutes

I landed at 08.00 hours mid week in September and I was in a taxi in under 45 minutes, including collecting my checked in suitcase.

I went through of immigration going out of Thailand at about 4:30 AM last week. It took about 30 minutes. 12 people in front of me and the five people directly in line in front of me had not filled out the departure card. And four of them were falangs. 

 

Time through immigration on arrival 5 minutes to 70 minutes without Fast Track. The luck of the draw applies.

Can depend on if a few other planes all land at the same time or if the immigration service have enough staff on duty.

Like has been said, any doubt then use Bangkok Flight Services for fast track immigration. I used them last year and was met at the plane and within 15 mins was standing at the carousel waiting for my case.

It has gotten a lot better since the disaster last month. But you could still get bad luck and arrive exact same time as 3 other flights.

Bangkok Flight Services will meet you at arrival gate and escort you through a pre-arranged channel. They can do the same for departure. 850 THB if you can use your own legs, 1,600 if you need a golf cart.

I wish they had something similar to BFS at Dubai Airport for transfers.  From arrival gate to departure gate sometimes seems like

your going to a different city :blink:

Excellent mi amigo.  But no golf cart? :blink:    Seems they just escort you.  Might try it next trip through Dubia if the

layover time is short.  Thanks.  I did see they serve a lot of airports worldwide.  None in the US.

Maybe they use camels ? As Dubai is massive, the golf cart omission seems like a bit of an oversight. I don't recall seeing any when I have passed through the airport. Their price for Suvarnabhumi is a whopping $99 which makes BFS' 850 THB even more of a bargain.
