Founded in 2007 by British expat Kevin Moss after years working as a volunteer with the Region 8 Police, the Phuket Immigration volunteers have for years provided invaluable assistance to foreigners new to applying for services at Phuket Immigration.
Kevin passed away last year after a brief battle with cancer, but his legacy of the Phuket Immigration Volunteers lives on.
Major rules changes and confusing application of the rules have left many foreigners stymied in knowing how to proceed.
A key aspect of the volunteers’ role has been the ability to speak languages other than English in helping foreigners understand the Immigration rules the foreigners must comply with.
