Yes, but in SE Asia it is common to hear people referred to as being Chinese even if they hold a passport of another country. It may not be official but it is common way to define origin and racial type and "Chinese" was one option used in UK censuses until very recently.

This is true.

There are some though that would say that no matter what passport they hold that they will always belong to the motherland.

Most of these wedding photographers from China works in groups, and they have a Thai tourist guide with them to assist. 

 

So in this case someone must have warned the immigration, maybe a local who didn't like the competition.You can make big money on this. 

 

 

 

I have never seen a thai with them in kamala.
on the roads or beach

Noticeably;, they have been absent in town and on the beach the last 2 days  LOL

Because they could be Chinese and not foreign. Plus the crime is working while being foreign, not working while being Chinese.

Semantic misdirection. They are either Chinese or they aren't. Foreign is a relative term. 

 

I suspect that the political correctness demonstrated here would not apply to persons of other types of 'foreigness' at this point in time. 

 

Also I find it extremely unlikely that 'non-Chinese foreigners' would be contracting with Chinese companies for the work. The Chinese economy just doesn't work that way. The common term for it is protectionism. 

 

The government knows who butters their bread these days.

They should check out Chiang Mai lots of them around Thapae gate

Why would the Phuket authorities have any interest in Chiang Mai- or has it been annexed to the south?

 

It was nice to see yesterday that instead of the 8 or so gangs normally working Kamala (which IS in Phuket) narry a one was about town or on the beach.

NO ONE CARES!!!!!!! 

 

9 out of ten pages about wedding photographers working illegal have been about what constitutes being Chinese for god's sake.

They were back on the streets and beach in Kamala yesterday- so much for a 'crackdown' cops just cruised past the ones on the main drag.
