  • Immigration : Suvarnabhumi Vs Los Angeles International

    April 15 2014

    Many foreign tourists are complaining of the queues and delays at the Immigration at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport. I will not deny them the queues do exist but I don’t think the situation is as bad as some would like to lead us to believe.

    I have been traveling through Bangkok airport 100 of times and I must say that I never had to wait more than 30 minutes at the immigration counter. I went 4 times to Los Angeles LAX airport and I must say that those 4 times were my worth experiences as a traveler.

    Average waiting time at immigration was 2 hours + 1 hour for custom, and the officer are quite aggressive by comparizon to their thai counterpart .  In Hong Kong and China Shanghai waiting time is around 30 minutes. In Europe, depending where you arrive, it can be anything between 15 to 30 minutes to go through immigration.

    So whenever you are queuing at  Suvarnabhumi airport waiting to go through immigration don’t get upset and thanks the divine powers that you are in Bangkok and not at LAX
