Locked: No Visa Run after August 12th

Post by pitsch » Tue Jun 13, 2017 3:14 pm

[Translation]
The immigration authorities in Thailand have announced that from 12 August 2017 onwards, they will no longer permit entry of foreigners leaving the country only on a short-term basis due to a visa run and then return to Thailand immediately.

From 13 August, the affected persons will no longer be able to return to Thailand, regardless of their choice of transport. The immigration authority has already instructed its officials to refuse entry to foreigners who wish to return after a visa run.

According to the immigration authorities, the exploitation of tourist visas and visa exemptions, which are used by many foreigners to live or work in Thailand, are to be ended.

Here is the german article:

So the governement makes another big effort to get rid of foreigners.

Why is there nothing in the English media about this, nothing on BK Post, Nation, Google News, TV ... Farcebook should be awash with this ...

Herr Flachwichser deliberately added the year "2017" to old news.

As I said - a bad news day. The 'other' forum is notorious for it.

This message is really 3 years old, but was never enforced.

Thread locked - please check when posting "news" stories from the visa forum or other sources, many websites are notorious for disseminating fake news to boost their traffic.
