    sound advice
    Best not to assume is my advice. Would suggest you get a copy of your tax receipt from the local tax office as an over precaution

    This here.

    I have left the country a few times and had my non-b automatically cancelled. Otherwise, markkk would have to take another day to obtain a cancellation letter from his former school and have immigration cancel his old non-b. Why bother? When you leave by air it's done automatically. As I said in my prior response, I know of a couple of guys who did it by mistake and had to reapply for a non-b. Markkk doesn't want to reapply at his old school or did I misunderstand this? It wouldn't be the first time.

    Having re-read the original post, I see that his previous employer does not want to issue a cancellation letter. Problem solved in leaving the country by air. At least this has been my own personal experience and that of my colleagues that did it by mistake.

    But what if you come to the wrong officer who dislikes foreigners in general?

    It's by air, but just to point out that something could happen was the "wanted land crossing of our Filipina, who thought she'd bypass all laws and tried to leave Thailand via Sawannakhet.

    Not just the full overstay had to be paid, they sent her to the place where she worked before to get the letter and she had to cancel her work permit at the DoL.

    Why would I even risk to lose my flight and a lot of other problems that c o u l d occur?

    That's maybe my German "Gruendlichkeit"( thoroughness), not wanting to have huge problems at the airport about something that can't be discussed.

    An Immigration officer can decide what's right and what's wrong.

    Missing my flight alone would really annoy me a lot ( sorry, really piss me off, driving back and trying to meet all these guys and and and ) and I couldn't blame anybody else than myself.

    yeah, I noticed that on the video in Hua Hin a while back :) :)

    I crossed into laos with the motorbike, ended up with a fistful of papers, while I'm sorting them out the border guy doesn't see my re-entry permit in my passport, cancels my non-b and hands it back to me. I didn't even look, let him finish with the motorcycle papers and off I went. Two weeks later returning to Thailand I explained everything and they canceled the cancel and took my re entry….. You never know here.. :)

    At least they wanted to listen and corrected their mistake. :thumbs up

    Guess your advice would be - always check the stamps in the passport when exiting and entering.

    If you want to be 100% safe, stay out of Thailand.
