The defense Ministry of Thailand will launch a database of all foreigners in the Kingdom. This writes the Bangkok Post.
Security forces plan to introduce monitoring by tourists, investors and foreign workers in the framework of the project to provide an adequate level of national security. The authorities intend to monitor, where arrived in the country by foreigners to prevent the growth of transnational crimes, particularly human trafficking, and terrorist activity.
It is noted that while this database is not put into operation, but law enforcement agencies are already mandated to strengthen the fight against illegal immigrants.
Currently, when you enter Thailand foreigners fill in a form, which must specify the place where they will stop.
Thailand is one of the leading positions in popularity among Russian tourists. In 2017, the Kingdom was visited by more than 1,3 million Russians.
