Thailand strengthens measures against foreign criminals

New steps in the fight against international crime

Thailand's Interior Minister has announced a new phase in the fight against international crime. The focus is on strengthening border controls, improving cooperation between different law enforcement agencies and introducing modern technology to monitor and identify criminals.

Tighter visa controls

One of the key measures is the tightening of visa controls. Now all foreigners entering the country will be subjected to more thorough checks. Visa applications will be scrutinized in detail and suspicious persons will be checked for possible links to criminal activity.

Cooperation with international organizations

Cooperation with international organizations and law enforcement agencies of other countries is also a major focus. Information sharing and joint operations will help to identify and apprehend criminals who seek refuge in Thailand.

Strengthening patrols in tourist areas

As part of the campaign, the Government intends to increase patrols in popular tourist spots and areas with a high concentration of foreigners. This will help to respond quickly to possible threats and prevent crimes at an early stage.

Information campaigns for tourists and locals

In parallel, the authorities are launching information campaigns for tourists and locals. Their aim is to raise awareness of possible risks and ways to protect themselves from criminals. Residents and visitors are advised to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police.

Adoption of new technologies

Thailand is also planning to introduce new technologies to better fight crime. In particular, video surveillance systems with facial recognition will be used to help quickly identify and apprehend offenders.

Security and comfort strategy

These measures are part of an overall strategy to ensure safety and enhance Thailand's reputation as a safe place to live and visit. The Government emphasizes that the safety of its citizens and visitors is a priority and that all necessary measures will be taken to protect against foreign criminals.

As the fight against international crime intensifies, Thailand is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all who come to this beautiful country, whether for leisure, work or permanent residence.
