Group of Indians and Ethiopians deemed not genuine tourists - denied entry by immigration

Immigration police at Suvarnabhumi airport denied entry to 12 Indians and 3 Ethiopians trying to get into the country on Monday.

 

They were clearly not tourists and threatened the kingdom with losses and potential damage to society, reported Naew Na. 

 

They were found to have neither money nor insurance contravening a swathe of immigration regulations.

 

They were all denied entry and sent back to their home countries. 

 

It's not clear why this particular incident was reported by Thai media.

 

It's not uncommon for an immigration official to deny entry to someone who they believe is not a genuine tourist.

 

If an immigration official suspects someone may not be a genuine tourist they will often ask them to show they have enough funds to support their stay in Thailand, as well asking for proof of a hotel booking and onward travel.

You don't really have to have any particular immigration laws to use your discretions and training to spot people who are not genuine in their respective intentions when entering a country and it's the same in every country around the world...

So, what does your answer have to do with the question I asked ???

In my POV. The immigration is only publicizing his job. This is not news....

12 Indians?

 

Hope Thailand realizes that's 3 bottles of coke sales lost for each day they were planning to stay.

Just the 3 bottles? Does that mean they're bringing their own straws now?
