Suvarnabhumi International Airport ushers a traveler arriving in Thailand. The airport is a tourist-friend commune; a transient community of people with places to go. International arrival understandably takes a little more time due to the immigration formalities. You arrive and rush your way to the immigration counters with your filled-up forms. Queue til you get your turn then hand in your passport and immigration forms, then a departure card is stapled to your passport which is given back to you. A photograph is also taken of you so be sure to take off eye glasses, bonnets, hats, etc. Some nationals are asked to show return tickets so you might as well have them with you, just in case.

Queue at the Immigration Counters. Photography is prohibited. Be discreet if you're taking photos (like me) and shut the flash! This explains the blurred quality of these immigration photos.
