Immigration to Blacklist “Visa Overstayers” of More than 90 Days

For a while now, there have been persistent rumours of an imminent immigration “crackdown” on foreigners who overstay their visa in Thailand for more than just a couple of days. Until now, tourists who “overstay” are usually simply fined 500 Baht/day up to a maximum fine of 20,000 Baht. Only when an “overstayer” is caught within the kingdom, he or she faces arrest and deportation.
Now the usually well-informed Thaivisa.com web board reports that they’ve been “given access to a new police order proposal that is due to be signed and released imminently, detailing tough new measures for foreigners who overstay in Thailand.”
The new tough measures would reportedly see foreigners who overstay their visa for more than 90 days blacklisted, i.e. prohibited from returning to Thailand.
The details as given by Thaivisa.com are as follows:

In the case that alien surrenders themselves:
Overstay more than 90 days > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 1 year.
Overstay more than 1 year > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 3 years.
Overstay more than 3 years > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 5 years.
Overstay more than 5 years > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 10 years.
Overstay more than 10 years > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for life.
In the case that the alien is being apprehended:
Overstay for less than 1 year > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 5 years.
Overstay for more than 1 year > Forbidden from re-entering the kingdom for 10 years
