Another Dutch national arrested in Phuket for illegally coming into Thailand

A Dutch national was arrested in Phuket for illegally entering and staying in Thailand, on the same day that another citizen of the Netherlands was arrested in Phuket for the same crime.
The Immigration Office at Phuket International Airport stated that over the past weekend, it arrested a sixty one 12 months outdated Dutchman. The man was apprehended at the Immigration checkpoint at the airport’s International Departure Terminal on Saturday, March 25, at around 9am. The authorities introduced the man to Sakhu Police Station to face costs of getting into and staying within the nation without a permit.
It is unclear how the man originally entered Thailand.
On the identical day, a 28 year previous Dutch lady was arrested at Phuket International Airport on the weekend for getting into and staying in Thailand with out permission or a visa.
The unnamed lady was taken to Sakhu Police Station to face charges of getting into and staying in Thailand illegally. As was the case with the man, it was unclear how the woman managed to enter the dominion.
Under Phuket Immigration’s new yellow and purple card system for unhealthy foreigners, first-time overseas offenders in Phuket will obtain a yellow card and repeat offenders will obtain a pink card, leading to their deportation.
Cancel anytime playing cards void the foreigner’s visa, but because the Dutch lady didn’t have a visa, her offence was nonetheless a deportable one – even when it was her first.
According to Phuket Immigration, many of the criminal foreigners come from Russia, France, the UK, Myanmar and Cambodia.
Should Phuket see success with its pink and yellow card system, the coverage could also be expanded to other tourist hotspots corresponding to Pattaya, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui – where foreigners are also keen on misbehaving.
In the previous few months, a couple of foreigners have been busted in Phuket after illegally getting into and staying in Thailand.
On February 28, immigration officers busted an Indian man and a Russian man, who entered and stayed in Thailand with out permits, at Phuket International Airport..
