Where to pass immigration: Bangkok and Phuket?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I arrive by a flight from Amsterdam at BKK and continue to Phuket (HKT) with a 2.5 hours span between landing and departure. Where should I pass immigration?

Is it better to pass immigration in BKK and recheck in for the domestic BKK->HKT flight? Or shoud I use the CIQ procedure at the BKK airport and pass immigration at HKT?

Is CIQ at BKK airport still available?

if your bags are checked through to Phuket I would do it down there- saves having to go through to the International side to get your bags. What time of day are you arriving?  The Chinese charters normally come in at night, leading to longer queues.

They are testing biometrics down there at present so things will hopefully be quicker than in the past.

Edit: 2.5 hours is cutting it a bit close anyway if you got delayed at any point.
