The Hua Hin Immigration Office moved yet again to new premises on the Canal Road by The Three Ladies Restaurant. If you come from the centre of town, heading north on Petchkasem Road, turn left into soi 10 just after Hua Hin Hospital. Follow the soi over the railway line to a "T" junction at the Canal Road. Turn left and proceed for about 1.5 kms and Immigration is on your left.

They are open from 08.30 to 15.30 Monday to Friday, they are closed for Public Holidays. The immigration office can be reached on 032-653617.
This immigration office is an extension of the Singkhon Immigration office in Prachuabkhirikhan. They offer the following services:
1) Visa extensions (30/15 day visa exempt stamps, TR tourist, Transit, Non Immigrant O/B)
2) Re-entry permits
3) 90 day notification
4) Proof of residence documents
The current cost of a visa extension is 1,900 baht however this may change so its best to check before hand. Also requirements for non-immigrant visa extensions based on marriage, retirement or work change frequently so make sure you go in there and ask them what is required. The officers are friendly and will do their best to assist you.
Please be aware that reporting late for your 90 days (applicable only to one year non immigrant visa extension holders) will incur a 2,000 baht fine and an additional 500 Baht a day. You are able to report up to 7 days before or after the stipulated date. Fines are incurred after this.
Also note that you can not get new visas or do "visa runs" at this office. You need to leave the country for those, the nearest border crossing to Hua Hin is Ranong around 5-6 hours south.
This office located near Prachuab town reopened last year (2011) and offers visa extentions and 90 day reporting, for those that live in Pranburi and further south this office is far more convenient.
