My son is appearing in a Bangkok court tomorrow. He is paying admission of guilt fine for being cheaky to a cop. He is out on bail
He is not able to leave the country as the computers at the borders are flagged with his details
His visa has expired and he wants to leave the country for good
He says he will need to pay Bt500 a day for each day overstayed

ow long does it take after a court case for the computers to show him as cleared to leave.

My assumption always was that Thai police would either keep your passport or not bother to keep you from leaving.

Would he be able to check with the people who originally informed him that he would not be able to leave the country?

Another option is to call up your Embassy and check with them as they should have extensive experience in that area.
