Busted! Immigration goes after "begpackers" for working without a permit

believe they can supplement their stay in Thailand by selling personal items or things they have made in the streets without sanction. 

 

There's a FB group called "Desperately Seeking BKK" or something along those lines where there are tons of foreigners selling personal items. The cops should take a look at that group and bust all the foreigners selling their stuff.

So does this mean that we as foreigners who sell anything, even like a bike or car or jacket or computer monitor are breaking the immigration law of working with out a permit and taking a job from a Thai? This country is beginning to smell and we are all going to have to redefine the thin line of what not to cross.

That would be a bridge too far but who knows?

Why do they let you clean your own condo or wash your own car?

Taking a job from a Thai? For years certain foreign Hippies have sold items on walking street in Chiang Mai but they are Japanese. IGNORED by the police. The moment a westerner starts busking they pounce! Thai people need to show about $75000 assets and reason to return or rich parents to get a visa (to the US for example) thus the irritation from entitled westerners who come visa free and beg or engage in criminal activities.

"world travels" 

 

You mean domestic travels, as most/very many Thais don't ha ve a passport?

Why going outside Thailand which is the most beautiful country on this earth ? :whistling:

This is in any case what strongly suggests each message from  TAT :cheesy:

 

For the rest, it is very easy for a Thai to get a passport in the day that costs 1,000 baht and is valid for 5 years.

Obviously, it does not mean that.
