The new Blúport office was opened on 9th May by immigration chief Natthathorn Phrosunthorn with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, gifts for the first customers and Hua Hin Mayor Mr. Nopporn Wutthikul and high ranking immigration officers in attendance.
This is good news for foreign residents and visitors with convenient access at the central Blúport Resort Mall however services are limited to 90 day reporting, place of residence advice and visa extensions.
