Police summons issued for Phuket’s seastead couple

Wichit Police have issued a summons for the ‘seastead’ couple after Phuket Immigration pressed another charged against the couple.

Phuket Immigration have now pressed charges saying that the pair departed the kingdom without clearing through the immigration channels. The charge follows the couple heading out more than 12 nautical miles offshore from Phuket to set up and live in the ‘seastead’. Immigration officials say that constitutes a departure from the Kingdom without clearing Immigration formalities.

Officers cannot confirm if the couple are in the country but say the immigration systems indicate that they are still in Thailand and haven’t yet cleared immigration at any departure points.

The Wichit Police have already issued the first police summons for the couple. The summons have been sent to their registered accommodations.
