the next creative from the Thai immigration service did not please expats

Those foreigners who are constantly living in Thailand who should visit in the near future local immigration office for receiving the next extension of the visa will be surprised with a new type of the paper form which is subject to filling. The form increased in sizes. Now it is three sheets which need to be filled out. The most interesting that now it is offered to specify to the foreign tourist or the expat who is constantly living in the country in a new part of a form bank account numbers (in the Thai banks), registration numbers of the cars and motorcycles used in the country, all used social networks and even often visited places (restaurants, bars, night clubs, shops, medical institutions). The need for such sensitive personal information is explained by the Thai immigration officials fight against the international terrorism and measures for safety of tourists. Though the Thai officials hurried to read a reassuring statement that some new fields (often visited places and transfer of the used social nets) are not obligatory for filling, but many expats already seriously strained. Many watching process of gradual crackdown for foreigners in the Country of Smiles had long ago a resistant opinion that on it & #171; креативе» the immigration authorities will definitely not stop. And everything began with cancellation the visa-ranov after a military coup and coming to power of military junta in the 2014th year. Yes, nobody prevents to arrive to Thailand and to have a rest here within a month of visa-free stay. But those who chose the Kingdom of Smiles for longer stay, got the real estate from the sea in one of resorts of the country, should feel the last two years the systematic headache connected with need of legalization of visa questions. Meanwhile, rules of the game constantly change, and the price of simple maintenance of the legal status for comfortable life continues to grow in the country. The Thai military junta which is gradually transforming the country in the direction of real military dictatorship strains not only foreigners. So, the trend on emigration from Thailand of civic activists and an educated part Thai societies was outlined. In general, emigration of citizens from Thailand & #8212; this unusual phenomenon as, unlike Filipinos light on the feet and Hindus, Thais are very tied to the Homeland, sincerely believing that it is the best country in the world. Very good article about an outcome of educated Thais from the country in English was recently published in the Bangkok Post newspaper. It is called: Exodus chapter two: Fresh wave prepares to call it quits (Outcome, Part second: the fresh wave prepares on an exit). The economy of Thailand at junta does not promise on the active growth (GDP of the country grew for the 2015th year only by 2,8%), the authorities press the opposition Red Shirts, followers of Thaksin Shinawatra and his sister, dissidents the Thai activists are condemned on cover-ups for insult of the monarchy (lese majeste) for long terms, the university professorate and political scientists are called for preventive conversations with security officers. Plans for creation of a control system of the Thai segment of the Internet for the DPI technology similar to Great Chinese Fayervol in the People's Republic of China are discussed. Even plastic bowls of the red color which is traditionally associated with opposition from which Songkran (the Thai New year) citizens had a shower bath water in present, caused hysterical reaction of generals. The educated Thai youth rather got a bit tired from all this. People find options of employment and moving to Singapore, Europe or North America and leave the country. Wrongly something in the Thai state.
