Assistant Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police, Lieutenant General Tetchai Pitarnpunt announced that 150 immigration officers will be additionally deployed to serve tourists from China and Kazakhstan.

Furthermore, to enhance the efficiency of serving these tourist groups, an operational center and dedicated immigration checkpoints have been established.

Tetchai added that immigration staff are trained to handle peak-hour tourist arrivals. In case of long queues at border checkpoints, the issue will be promptly addressed.
