Businesses and Transport Services throughout Thailand Are Operating

May 26, 2014 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

Businesses, public services, and transport services throughout Thailand are operating, but have adjusted operating hours to comply with the curfew.

A nationwide curfew has been imposed between 22.00 and 05.00 hr, effective from 22 May 2014, after the National Council for Peace and Order took control of the country.

The move to take control of the country is meant to help restore normalcy and national unity, pave the way for political, economic and social reform, and ensure legitimacy to all sides.

The Council offers leniency to all air passengers with arrival and departure flights scheduled during curfew, allowing them to travel to and from the airports at any time as usual. The following measures are advised for travelers travelling to Bangkok and the immediate vicinity:

• Individual travelers are advised to keep their passports and other travel documents on their person at all times, in case they are required for inspection by the security authorities.

• Group travelers on tour coaches will be taken care of by their respective tour leaders when passing through any security checkpoint.

• Taxi services at the Suvarnabhumi Airport are available 24 hours. These taxis have the Suvarnabhumi Airport stickers displayed on the front windscreen. Security checkpoint officers will allow access for these vehicles.

• Survarnabhumi Airport Call Center Tel: 1722 is ready for assistance if tourists need more information.

Tourists can continue to apply for visa as usual, as the National Council for Peace and Order has instructed civil servants at all government agencies to carry on with their normal duties.
