PHUKET:-- The Immigration office at Phuket International Airport has dismissed reports that tourists have been suffering waits of up to two hours to clear the Arrivals Hall at the airport.

 

The Phuket News received a direct report of a two-hour wait for international arrivals to clear Immigration at the airport yesterday (Feb 12), following another report of people suffering horribly overcrowded conditions while waiting to be cleared by Immigration last Saturday (Feb 8).

 

“My customers arrived with WK50. They were waiting more than two hours in the arrival hall to gain 15 metres in the queue,” the aggrieved wrote to The Phuket News.

However, an official at the Health Control Division at Phuket airport who asked not to be identified confirmed to The Phuket News today that long queues do arise when several full flights land in quick succession.

Is the fast track lane still open to select individuals upon furnishing the plain clothed guy, who casually sidles up to them, with 100 thb?

obviously too costly for the army to clear the land of mines, easier to let the locals step on them, what more can we expect really

Well what is it? No tourists with the nobs screaming for compensation or gridlocked tourist arrivals?

Some things never change. A quick review of threads will show this was an issue 10 years ago as well.

Me too.

 

But we're wrong. The Immigration Office has told us so.

 

I reckon they've reduced the number of IOs on duty as a result of fewer Chinese arrivals and they've miscalculated.

 

Should be OK next week, when hospitality providers in my vicinity seems to think that high season numbers are coming to an end - a month earlier than usual!
