Immigration police have announced a new safety campaign which will be running at airports over the New Year’s period which entails beefing up security for the safety of tourists.
In a joint effort from the Immigration Bureau, Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Airports of Thailand Plc, teams of personnel have been dispatched to patrol the airport during the New Year holiday period under a campaign being titled “Love at First Sight by Thai Immigration.”
The move to increase security is apparently a result of up to 170,000 tourists being expected to pass through Suvarnabhumi daily over the coming week prompting the immigration department to seek the help of other relevant agencies to facilitate incoming tourists.
It is not just Suvarnabhumi where the campaign is taking place extra personnel have also been dispatched to all airports across the kingdom.
Personnel will be carrying out two main roles firstly to aid in the immigration booths to speed up processing, with translators also deployed to help answer questions from tourists.
The second role of personnel will be to look out for individuals considered a threat such as illegal immigrants and those attempting to smuggle contraband, now all arriving tourists will be required to provide biometric data and fingerprints upon arrival.
