In support of a recently established visa-free travel policy intended to promote tourism from China and Kazakhstan, Pattaya City officials have banded together to strengthen security measures. The policy, which will be in place from September 2023 to February 2024, was the main topic of conversation at a meeting held on October 20 at Pattaya City Hall.
In addition to the Pattaya City Police Superintendent, Pol. Col. Tanapong Poti, and Council Chairman, Banlue Kullavanijaya, Mayor Poramet Ngamphichet presided over the meeting. Representatives from organizations including Banglamung District, Pattaya City, Pattaya Police, Chonburi Provincial Police, Pattaya Tourism Authority, Chonburi Provincial Transport Office, Port Authority of Thailand, and local businesses, both public and private, actively participated in the gathering.
The meeting’s main goal was to discuss and improve safety procedures in front of the increased number of Chinese and Kazakh visitors expected as a result of the push for visa-free travel. The program seeks to improve the local economy and advance the travel and tourism sector in recognition of these visitors as important contributors.
Authorities in the city emphasized how crucial it is to protect visitors’ lives, property, and life. As a result, a strong safety strategy will be put into place, including improved traffic safety measures and harsher punishments for infractions, especially for baht bus drivers who are discovered to be breaking the rules.
Prior to opening to the general public, public parking lots serving both locals and visitors will go through comprehensive inspections to guarantee compliance with current service requirements. This proactive move attempts to build confidence with visitors to Pattaya and guarantee a safe and happy experience while they are there.
