Immigration and customs

After disembarking, had a walk towards the immigration. The queues were long. Passengers divided into Priority, business and economy. Took about an 1 hr after landing to exit the immigration.
I didn't buy any alcohol at Bangkok as I didn't want to carry it around. Thai Smile didn't sell any on board in duty free. I like to carry some booze for collection. Rate wasn't much different from other airports.
Bag had already arrived at the carousal and had been taken off the belt. After collecting the bag, passed through customs without any issues.

Soon picked outside the terminal to head home.

Hope you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading.
