Police weren't getting their cut, or it was  becoming so blatant that even they couldn't ignore it? I have had only one brush with the Chon Buri immigration office, to try and extend a tourist visa, and it wasn't a pleasant experience, from not being able to get any more than a ticket for yet another queue from "Information" to being told to go to the back of the queue after getting queue-jumped by a Thai woman with what wasn't her passport and a sh*t-eating grin. I gave up and went to Cambodia before my visa expired instead.

Isn't he sticking his nose in business where it doesn't belong? Last I read is the Immigration Departments are their own police and nothing to do with him.

Immigration is a division of the Police.

Yes but I always understood or thought them to be their own entity of command.

No, because he didn’t bribe us to listen 😉

My immigration office in Hua Hin is quite easy to deal with and always very polite. Never had to bribe anyone. The police need to look into their own house first.

I've dealt with Chonburi Immigration for 10 years now never had a problem. 

The long queues  are caused by Falangs that turn up without the correct paperwork or paperwork incorrectly filled out .

Prior planning and preparation prevent p#$h poor performance. 

I must admit I  was very impressed with the way they were sending such People to the back off the queue when I did a 90 day report last month.
