Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha, leader of the coup makers (National Council for Peace and Order – NCPO), explained that the council had taken over the authority of the House and the Senate for the time being in case any actions required parliamentary approval. The council’s key objectives are to ensure a reform of political, economic and social institutions in order to bring out peace and order to the kingdom.

 The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is considering lifting the midnight to 4 .00 a.m. curfew in Phuket and Pattaya after realizing its negative impact on the country’s tourism which contribute up to 10% of GDP.

NCPO deputy spokesman Col Nattawat Chancharoen said consideration of the curfew lift came after the NCPO head Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha received complaints from the private sector of inconvenience and negative impact felt by businesses in tourist-frequented province, and dropping revenues.

The businesses include entertain places, restaurants and nightspots.

The army deputy spokesman said that Gen Prayuth has instructed his working groups on economic and security affairs to assess the situation in these tourist-frequented provinces namely Phuket and Pattaya.

He said the NCPO head indicated of lifting the night curfew to restore tourism in provinces where there is no coup resistance.

The Tourism and Sports Ministry revealed recently that  although the number of foreign tourists would decline  after  martial law was declared,  Chinese tourists who were then in Pattaya did not rush home as they were told by their government, the spokesman said.

This was obviously because the Chinese tourists did not see any harm and violence in Thailand even after the coup, he said.

He added several teams would be sent to various tourist destinations to assess the situation. If the situation in those areas is normal, the curfew may be lifted selectively, adding that decision would be expected next week.

The 10,000 baht duty-free limit on new personal items purchased overseas by incoming air passengers is now being strictly policed, the Customs Department announced on Tuesday.

Incoming air passengers are warned about 10,000 baht duty free limit. (Bangkok Post file photo)

The warning was carried on new signs posted at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport.

The Suvarnabhumi Airport Passenger Control Customs Bureau will calculate the value of all personal items - souvenirs, gifts or brandname goods - purchased overseas. If the combined value of those products exceed 10,000 baht, passengers and airline crew will have to pay import duty.

Signs announcing enforcement of the  limit were placed at the airport, explaining that "personal goods" includes new clothes, shoes, socks and bags in non-commercial form.

If goods being brought into Thailand exceed the limit, they must be declared to customs officials  and the duty paid before their baggage go through the X-ray machine. Any undeclared items will be seized and the owners may have to pay up to four times of the value including plus the duty.

The department said food, food supplements and cosmetic will not get the duty waiver. Travellers are limited to 200 duty free cigarettes and one litre of duty free liquor or wine.

Gifts prepared to give to other people, donated items, collectable items, second-hand goods, empty watch and brandname bag boxes are not considered as personal items. Individuals bringing in these products have to inform customs officials before the baggage X-ray.

Expensive new watches or bags worth more than 10,000 baht will be liable to duty, even if being worn.

Somchai Asawadtriratanakul, the bureau’s chief of investigation and suppression division, said the regulation was an existing one, but enforcement will be stricter. The bureau found many people brought in new products for resale in Thailand without paying import duty. Action had to be taken to prevent this.

Initially, signs were posted at arrival and departure areas. If duty-payable goods are found undeclared in possession of a passenger who refuses to allow the goods to be seized, the case will go to court, he said.

If the passenger loses the case, the smuggled goods will be seized and they would be liable to a fine of four times the assessed value, including the import duty, and/or a prison term of up to 10 years.

INSURANCE FOR TOURISTS

Thailand Travel Shield insurance may be purchased by tourists starting today



BANGKOK, 25 July 2014 (NNT)

The Tourism Authority of Thailand signed a memorandum of understanding with the Office of Insurance Commission (OIC) on Thursday, to create low-cost insurance schemes for foreign tourists that start at just 650 baht per person.


Thawatchai Aranyik, the governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), and OIC secretary-general Prawet Ong-atsitthikun yesterday signed the MOU for the low-cost insurance project, which will see participation by Muang Thai Insurance, Siam City Insurance, Chao Phraya Insurance and Krung Thai Phanit Insurance companies.

The "Thailand Travel Shield" insurance scheme allows foreign tourists to voluntarily purchase insurance to ensure protection against threats that may not be covered by the tourists' primary insurance.

Such threats include riots, terrorism and political turmoil.

The premium for Thailand Travel Shield is between 650 baht and 12,000 baht.

The duration of coverage spans from a week to one year.

Thailand Travel Shield will be put on offer to tourists starting today (July 25).

ATTENTION:

It is now very important for ALL FOREIGNERS (Tourists & Expats) to know that Immigration Officials are now enforcing the existing rule that foreigners are required to carry a valid photo ID at all times.

This immediate enforcement regarding the requirements for foreigners -tourists and expats - to carry valid photo ID at all times is now in effect in Thailand.

Immigration Officials are doing checks and asking foreigners to produce their valid identification document.

Valid identification document could be one of the followings:

1. Thai Drivers License
2. Passport or
3. Copy of passport visa page + photopage

The penalty for failure to carry valid ID as above is 2,000 Baht.

Another existing rule ALL FOREIGNERS (tourists & expats) have to pay attention now is that the obligation to report themselves when they move from one province to another and have to stay for more than 48 hours. In this case the obligation is that they have to report themselves to the immigration office. If no immigration office is open (holidays, etc.), then they have to report / provide their address at any Police Station Office at anytime and within the first 48 hours.

Ναι μεν αλλά... το immigration στο Hua Hin αναγνωρίζει μόνο πρωτότυπα διαβατήρια. Δεν θεωρεί φωτοτυπημένα αντίγραφα, ουτε αναγνωρίζει διπλώματα αυτοκινήτου η μοτοσυκλέτας. Τουλάχιστον έτσι κυκλοφορεί στο διαδίκτυο. Αν είμαστε υποχρεωμένοι να κυκλοφορούμε με τα διαβατήρια στην τσέπη, διακινδυνεύουμε να μας το κλέψουν η στην καλύτερη περίπτωση να γίνουμε μούσκεμα κάτω από μια ξαφνική βροχή και μαζί με μας να γίνει μούσκεμα και το διαβατήριο, με άλλα επακόλουθα. Γνωρίζει κάποιος τι ακριβώς συμβαίνει?

Γιατί δεν το δηλώνουν οι ξενοδόχοι ή τελος πάντων αυτοί που έχουν τουριστικες επιχειρήσεις? Ο τουρίστας που πάει για λίγο καιρό γιατί θα πρέπει να ταλαιπωρείται?

Σύμφωνα με το έγγραφο που παρουσιάζεται στο Thaivisa http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/747147-immigration-foreigners-must-now-carry-valid-id-at-all-times-report-within-24-hours/ αλλά και στην επεξήγηση από εδώ http://www.pattaya-funtown.com/news.html για τους τουρίστες οφείλουν να ενημερώσουν το immigration οι ξενοδόχοι. Οι μόνιμοι κάτοικοι θα πρέπει να απευθυνθούν στο immigration για την αλλαγή διεύθυνσης.
Και για όποιον δεν θέλει να ανοίξει τα links, συγκεκριμένα το thaivisa αναφέρει πως υπάρχουν 4 τρόποι να δηλώσει κάποιος τη νέα διεύθυνση :

- Οικοδεσπότες ή διαχειριστές θα πρέπει να δηλωθούν αυτοπροσώπως
- Οικοδεσπότες ή διαχειριστές μπορούν να αναθέσουν σε κάποιον να τους δηλώσει
- Ιδιοκτήτες ή διαχειριστές μπορούν να στείλουν αναφορά ταχυδρομικώς
- Μπορεί να γίνει αναφορά μέσω του site του immigration.

Επίσης στην αρχή του εγγράφου αναφέρεται : Όταν φθάνει κάποιος αλλοδαπός στο οίκημα, οι οικοδεσπότες θα πρέπει να ενημερώνουν το immigration μέσα σε 24 ώρες από την ώρα άφιξης του αλλοδαπού.

Από το pattaya-funtown σημειώνεται το εξής : Το immigration του Hua Hin, από σήμερα ζητά από εμάς και τους διαχειριστές (ιδιοκτήτες κόντο, ιδιοκτήτες σπιτιού κλπ.) να αναφέρουν εντός 24 ωρών στο immigration τη νέα τους διεύθυνση. Στην κάρτα που συμπληρώνουμε κατά την άφιξη αναφέρουμε τη διεύθυνση διαμονής, αν αυτή αλλάξει, οφείλουμε να ενημερώσουμε το immigration.
Αν είσαι τουρίστας, το ξενοδοχείο που διαμένεις οφείλει να σε αναφέρει στο immigration, οπότε τα παραπάνω αναφέρονται κυρίως σε μόνιμους και σε άτομα που μένουν για μεγάλα χρονικά διαστήματα.

Junta Warns Foreign Embassies in Thailand about Visa Crackdown


BANGKOK – The days of freewheeling foreigners staying in Thailand without proper visas are over. Thailand’s military-run administration has begun a crackdown on expatriates using immigration loopholes to stay in the country, sometimes for years.

Those affected include long-term stay tourists, early retirees, fly-in fly-out workers, English teachers, illegal workers and so-called “digital nomads” who work for companies in their homelands.

A crackdown is also under way to enforce existing laws stating that all foreigners, including tourists, carry their passports or photographic proof of their identities at all times.

The law states Police must also be informed within 24 hours when foreigners change address, with violators fined for non-compliance. Immigration Officials have said this is unlikely to be enforced, however foreigners might worry about corrupt officials seeking to line their pockets with some quick money with misuse of the law.

The restrictions come as the Thai military maintains a tight grip on how the country is governed following its May 22 coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, after months of political unrest.

Under martial law, gatherings of more than five people are banned, the media faces strict censorship and authorities are swift to clamp down on dissent.

Immigration officials have announced that from August 12 foreigners will be banned from taking so-called visa runs to obtain short-stay, back-to-back visas that have allowed them to repeatedly extend their stay through border stamps. The visa runs have spawned businesses that facilitate cross-border trips by foreigners, some of whom are known to have been using the loophole for more than 10 years.

But immigration officials say that even foreigners on valid tourist visas may now be denied entry if border officials suspect they are spending too long in the country or working illegally.

Foreign embassies and other diplomatic missions in Bangkok have been asked by Thai immigration officials to warn their citizens that laws will be strictly implemented to prevent what they call “visa runners”.

“Foreigners who come to Thailand must seek a proper visa in line with the purpose of their intended stay here,” the Immigration Bureau said on its website.

Immigration officials have also announced a crackdown on foreigners who overstay that will result in many being banned from entering Thailand for years or even for life.

Until now people on tourist visas were fined the equivalent of $17 for every day they overstayed up to a maximum of $669 if they presented themselves at an airport or immigration office. In most cases they were allowed to immediately leave and then re-enter the country.

But under the crackdown those who overstay more than 90 days and surrender to immigration officials will be prohibited from returning for one year. Those who overstay for more than five years will be prohibited from re-entering for 10 years. Penalties are even harsher for those who do not surrender and are arrested for overstaying.

Expatriate website forums have been flooded with comments about the restrictions in the country where tens of thousands of expatriates have made homes on the resort island of  Phuket and cities such as Pattaya and Chiang Mai.

One popular forum said that the hardest affected may be expatriate retirees who do not meet the financial requirements to obtain a one-year extension of stay. Some support a Thai partner and children.

The number of tourist arrivals in the country collapsed after the coup, even before the Tourism Authority of Thailand had cut its forecast for foreign arrivals this year to a five year-low of 26.3 million as political unrest deterred visitors.

USE OF MOBILE PHONE WHILE DRIVING

Law doesn't forbid talking on phone 'when car stopped'

A former judge has questioned the police enforcement of the law against drivers speaking on mobile phones while halted at a red traffic light.


A police officer shows an image of a woman driver caught using a mobile phone while stopped at a traffic light on Aug 4, 2014.

Chuchart Srisaeng, a retired judge of the Supreme Court, said on his personal Facebook page that his reading of the law was that drivers can use their mobile phones when the vehicle is not moving.

He agreed that strict enforcement of traffic law, including prohibiting drivers using mobile phones without a hands-free device, was a good policy to prevent accidents, improve driving discipline and reduce traffic congestion.

The 2008 Traffic Act imposes bans the use of mobile phones for drivers of all kinds of vehicles, including motorcycles. Violators are liable to a fine of 400 to 1,000 baht.

Drivers who use hands-free devices are exempt from the ban.

Mr Chuchart said the Traffic Act did not give a definition of the word “drive”, so he looked in a Thai dictionary which explained that the word was about people maneuvering a vehicle.

Therefore, in his opinion, a mobile phone can be used without violating the traffic law if a car is not moving for any reason -- whether it has broken down, was waiting for someone, waiting for a green light, or while stopped in congested traffic.

On Aug 5, traffic police armed with long-lens cameras targeted drivers using mobile phones at Khlong Tan, Sanghi, Bang Lamphu, Pracha Nukul, Ratchayothin, Asok, Ratchaprasong, Samyan and Sathon-Surasak intersections.

A total of 198 offenders were stopped and fined at those intersections on that day, the first day of the campaign.
