A Thai property owner and two Chinese nationals have all been fined for not abiding by the law that states that a foreigners’ location must be reported within 24 hours when they have changed addresses.

Naew Na used the word “property” in its report so it’s not known if the premises was a private dwelling, Airbnb-style or hotel.

Aphisit Minghiran was the Thai man charged along with the two Chinese. The fines were paid at the Chanthaburi Immigration Operation Centre, in Thailand’s east near Trat.

Naew Na said that articles 37 and 38 of the immigration code had been violated. The transgression happens thousands of times a day but the Immigration Bureau say that it’s important to know where foreigners are staying and travelling around the kingdom for their own safety and security.
