Chonburi immigration joined forces with the Pattaya tourist police and raided hotels, rental properties, guest houses and apartments yesterday looking for illegal foreigners and people who had overstayed their visas. 

 

The continuing action is under the auspices of Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan's "Operation X-Ray Foreigner" crackdown, reported Pattaya News. 

 

The sweep resulted in the arrest of five Burmese and one Indian who had entered Thailand illegally. 

 

One Russian and two Indians were found to have overstayed their visas. 

 

Two Indians were working illegally. 

 

No one was named and the extent of the overstay was not mention in the report on Facebook.

 

Six of those arrested appeared in a line-up at the police station.

The issue is...when will all this end...and what next?

 

Income verification appears to be changing, what is next there?

 

I'm sorry but i feel that Thailand would rather not have long term retirees etc living in THERE country.

Guess they want foreigners to adjust their lifestyle and rather contribute to Thailand than to themselves only. This is probably done to avoid envy among the natives. 

This might end when average Thais are not poorer than Farangs anymore.
