The move from the overcrowded Nathon office is well overdue for the hard-working staff and the many visitors. The Nathon office was originally a convenient location, however, as the Island developed more quickly in the north, the Nathon location proved a long journey for most tourists and expats who needed to use the Immigration Office services.
Samui Immigration’s new offices are in a more central location and will shorten the travelling time for most visitors.


The more central Maenam location, modern layout and increased office size should make the “Immigration Office Experience” more pleasant for all concerned. This new Samui branch, of the Surat Thani Immigration Department, address is officially:
333 Maenam Road, Soi 1, Moo 1, Maenam, Koh Samui, 84330.

Samui Immigration Office opens at 8.30 am (08.30) and closes at 4.30 pm (16.30).
Please note, the offices are closed between 12 pm and 1 pm.


If you show respect to the Immigration staff by wearing normal clothes, not beach attire, you will be shown respect in return.
