I am over 50 years old and have dual nationality, I have a British passport and an Australian passport I want to apply for a retirement visa and I have a non immigrant visa in my Australian passport and my pension income for the application is from Australia but at the airport by mistake I entered Thailand on my British passport and received only 30 days, can I take both passports to the immigration office and ask them to transfer the stamps.

In my previous experience the answer is no, if you need the retirement visa in your Australian passport and not the British then I would take a short vacation out of Thailand via the airport, go out on the British and return on your Australian passport, I would not advise a one day visa run to Cambodia you will get some very funny looks by the officers if you go out on one passport and then return on a different passport 5 minutes later, we have found that it is hard for them to grasp how somebody can have two passports from different countries.
