Since the beginning of 2023, more than 180 foreigners have been prosecuted in Phuket, with tourists from Russia taking the first place in cases of offenses. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Bangkok Post newspaper.

“The three main criminals are citizens of Russia, France and the UK… Phuket Governor Narong Wuncheu met with the consuls general and ambassadors of 23 countries to inform them about cases related to the behavior of foreigners on the island,” the newspaper writes.

It is specified that these countries also included Australia, China, Austria, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Mexico, Nepal, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Spain and Hungary.

According to the newspaper, recently the Phuket police launched an action to combat crimes committed by foreigners on the largest island of the kingdom. These anti-crime measures have led to the arrest of many foreigners, including Russians and Mongols for theft, and the French for forming motorcycle gangs that harass local residents.

The head of the Phuket immigration service said that at the moment there are about 32 thousand foreigners on the island, mostly tourists and emigrants from Russia, as well as from the UK, France, China and Germany.

Earlier it was reported that the Phuket Immigration Service announced the first “red” and “yellow” tourists received in accordance with the new system designed to combat violations. It is similar to the rules of football, where players are given colored cards and removed from the field. So, a foreigner who is convicted of any violations of the order will receive a “yellow” card. At the same time, the tourist will be able to continue to rest in Phuket, but next time he will not be allowed into Thailand. In the case of a second misconduct, the guest will already receive a “red” card and will be immediately expelled from the country.
