Immigration office locations:

Laem Ngop:

Laem Ngop Immigration office is in the centre of Laem Ngop village 100 metres walk from the pier.

You can take a songtaew from either Trat bus station or one of the ferry piers to Laem Ngop. In Laem Ngop village take the road adjacent to the police station and you will see the Immigration office.

Klong Yai:

Unless you are staying near the border, you probably won’t need to visit this office as the Laem ngop office will be more convenient for tourists and foreigners living and working on Koh Chang and other islands..

Klong Yai Immigration office is located just outside Klong Yai town, on Soi Tessaban near the hospital and football stadium.

If you are staying on Ko Chang you can take one of the minibus services that go to the border at Hat Lek. The return ticket price is about 800 Baht per person. Buy tickets from a tour agent on Koh Chang.

From Trat bus station you can take any public minibus which is going to Hat Lek. It can drop you off in Klong Yai town.  That is 80 Baht per person.  When you get off the minibus, take a motorbike taxi to the Immigration office
