Thanks a lot for the info guys. What kind of paperwork do you need?
There are two visa shops/offices nearby. Both will help you out with the paperwork and photos for about 200-300 baht depending on the number of forms and photos.
Immigration opens at 8:30, closes at 4:30 and for lunch between 12:00 & 1:00. If you get there after 11 they will give you the forms and tell you to come back after 1pm. You will need to kill a couple of hours.
Go into immigration, at the front desk show your passport and say you want an visa extension. They will read your passport and give you the forms and a piece of paper with what you need e.g. photos and your hotel/guest house receipt etc.
Come back out of immigration and in the courtyard on the right is the fitst visa office, the second visa office is out of the courtyard, turn right and it is the last shop on the end.
I have used both, the first one is very busy and a bit chaotic, the second one is more relaxed and I found it easier for a first time extension. But now I know the process I use the visa office in the courtyard. They are both ok to use.
Go back to immigration with the completed forms and photos. The front desk will read them and give you a ticket. Sit down and wait your turn.
The last time I was there I had to do the 90 day reporting as well even though my visa was only 30 days. It is not a problem, it means you will have more forms and photos to complete and have to queue twice, once for the 90 day reporting and once for the extension. The extension as mentioned above is 1900 baht.
If you are planning on spending more time in Thailand get a residency certificate at the same time, it costs 300 baht and is valid for 3 months. Take the certificate to the Bangkok bank in Central Festival with your passport and hotel/guest receipt and open a savings account with an ATM card, the card costs 300 baht. Then you can transfer money into Thailand using Transferwise for about £6.50 per £1,000 and draw it out in baht with no ATM charges.
