PUBLIC NOTICE

Thai Immigration law requires tourists/foreigners to always have on them passports for easy identification and confirmation of their status as Thai nationals are also expected to have on them their National Identification Cards. In this respect, Nigerians visiting or living in Thailand are advised in their own interest to always have on them their valid travel documents. Failure to do this will leave them liable to arrest and detention.

Consular days are Monday – Friday (10:00am – 3:00pm)

PROVISION OF BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS FOR MONEY TRANSFER

Desirous to checkmate laundering of illegal money, Thai Government has recently introduced Anti-Money Laundering Regulations which will among others, cause investigation to the source of suspicious financial transactions. To this end, Nigerians visiting or living in Thailand are hereby advised not to make available to anyone their account details for any proxy financial transactions so as not to run foul of the law. This is also the case in Nigeria today as fraudsters can easily put innocent persons in trouble by offering them a commission. Since it is similar to carrying a bag for someone without knowing its contents, please refuse the offer because ignorance is not accepted as an excuse for breaking the law. The Mission will appreciate if the above information is circulated and shared among members of the Nigerian Community in Thailand for their information and necessary compliance.
