BANGKOK: -- The national police chief has ordered the immigration department to sort out the problem of long queues at Thailand's airports intimating that heads may roll over the matter.

 

The news comes as excuses issued by immigration for delays at Suvarabhumi on Wednesday continued to irk the chief.

 

Queues at Thailand's main airport were particularly severe on Wednesday afternoon seeing thousands of tourists unable to even get in the immigration hall area. Problems persisted later in the day with booths unmanned but hundreds waiting to leave.

 

As far as Wednesday afternoon was concerned Region 2 immigration said they did all they could.

 

They said twenty planes landed with 4,600 people and only 3,000 could fit in the hall. They claimed that all the booths were manned with officers and that the problems were exacerbated within an hour.

 

But rumors were rife on social media that staff at Suvarnabhumi had been assigned to solve problems at Bangkok's other main airport where five hour queues last week saw people who didn't want to lose their place urinate on the floor.

 

Such situations have angered the national police chief Chakthip Chaijinda who has ordered the setting up of monitoring stations at five airports to look into the problem.

 

These will be at Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hat Yai.

 

The chief told Daily News that he was looking into the matter to see who was responsible for the delays.

 

Immigration in Thailand is a part of the police force.

They are now learned about weak urinary bladders. Do not let people wait for hours in your Immigration queues.
