Visa wait for tourists likely to top 4 hours at Suvarnabhumi airport

Published on : Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Thailand's Suvarnabhumi AirportTourists who apply for a visa on arrival at Suvarnabhumi airport are most likely to face up to a four-hour wait during the New Year period on account of a challenging screening process.

 

The screening process has been so designed with an aim to check the undesirable people from entering the Kingdom.

 

The Immigration Bureau is thinking about opening more lanes for visa processing to minimize the lengthy queues.

 

A visa on arrival permits passport holders of 18 nationalities to enter Thailand for the purpose of tourism for a time frame not exceeding 15 days. In fact it is being offered at various designated immigration checkpoints  in airports all across the world.

 

It is quite popular among Indian and Chinese tourists and issued majorly at Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports with as many as about 7,000 tourists applying for them per day.

 

Ideally this process should be consuming about three minutes to be completed but the abrupt influxes of applicants might lead to very long queues.

 

Pol Gen Pruettipong Prayoonsiri who is the director of Immigration Police Division 2 mentioned that the Immigration Bureau is eager for solutions that do not compromise security like boosting staff in busy periods.
