Fill Out Both Sides of the Immigration Form—and Don’t Lose It
As I was reminded this past week, some countries—like Thailand and Japan—require you to fill out both sides of your immigration form (arrival and departure) when you land. I’ve seen countless travelers get pulled out of the immigration line upon arrival because they didn’t fill out the departure side (or separate departure form), too. Don’t lose your place in line and take the time to fill it out.
Even more importantly, don’t lose the departure form after they hand it back to you. I had two hotels this week in Thailand ask me for my departures form on check-in! Not sure what would’ve happened if I’d lost it, but I’m glad that I didn’t have to find out.
FYI: I filled out the immigration form above on trip to Cambodia, where I stayed at the Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa.
