New immigration screening system unveiled


Authorities check the data of passengers gathered before they arrive in Thailand using the data-tracking system installed at the new 24-hour centre at Suan Plu’s Immigration Division One.

THAILAND is more secure now thanks to a new screening system at the recently opened Thai Immigration 24/7 centre in Suan Plu, according to authorities.
The system uses an "Advanced Passenger Processing System" (APPS) to stop "undesirable" foreigners from coming to Thailand based on data gathered at their point of origin.

Police Lt-General Nathathorn Prousoontorn, chief of the Immigration Bureau, told The Nation that the APPS would screen incoming passengers before a decision was made whether to let them in to the country.

I popped into Immigration to check out a small point yesterday.
There was an elderly falang with his wife at the preparation desk inside the main door - he was white and shaking and appeared unable to move or speak.
A youngish Immigration Officer was being so kind and considerate to him saying gently - 'Don't worry Sir, we'll sort it out for you - don't you worry at all' etc etc.
The poor Guy had to be helped by the young Officer to another chair close by and as I was leaving, he was helping him out to the car park with his arm around him. 
I have noticed this Officer before - he's young, smart and speaks great English.

Full credit to him for showing such kindness and humanity.
It's not all bad then !

Myself I find Immigration frustrating sometimes but IMO if you are polite and helpful, you receive the same in return.
