    Hi. We just arrived at Bangkok Airport last night and noticed a new policy of higher fines for overstaying your visa here in Thailand. The new regs took effect in March 2006. It looks like there is a one day grace period of no fine, but on the second day the fine is THB 1000, with an additional THB 500 per day after that. That's real money. Regards.
