Detention by Police or Immigration

Although the Thai Police and Immigration do an excellent job, there are instances where, due to cultural and language differences, foreigners can find themselves in difficult situations. Since SOS’s inception we, as a non-profit organisation, have been called upon to assist in such situations on numerous occasions.

It may be just the result of a simple communication break down due to the language barrier but, nevertheless, situations such as these may soon escalate as tempers fray.

What would SOS do?

  • Visit police station to establish cause
  • Arrange legal assistance
  • Liase with police/immigration on member’s behalf
  • Contact friends or family and explain situation
  • Inform police and immigration
