    Online Alcohol Sales Ban Announced

    The Royal Gazette announced yesterday, 8th September that online alcohol sales via websites, social media and other electronic channels will be prohibited.


    The announcement, signed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, stated that due to the popularity of e-commerce, some entrepreneurs opted to sell alcoholic beverages via electronic channels, making it difficult to control the date, time, venue and target groups buying alcohol to be in compliance with the legal limit as stated in the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act BE 2551.

    After getting advice from the National Alcoholic Beverage Policy Committee, the Prime Minister announced that sales or “other actions” related to the selling of alcoholic beverages via electronic channels will be prohibited.


    This includes direct selling, persuading, introducing the product or related services via electronic channels that enable sellers and consumers to complete a sale without physically meeting.


    This prohibition does not include the selling and paying for alcoholic beverages via electronic methods at bars, shops, restaurants or establishments that serve alcohol.


    The ban will take effect within 90 days of it being announced in the Royal Gazette.

    Utterly fucking stupid (and corrupt, as usual). Online companies like Wishbeer, etc are the only agents selling decent beers, wines, etc here at good prices.

    Obvious 'gimme' to the Thai Govt's billionaire piss-peddler friends, like Thai Bev, Thai Alcohol PLC etc. Cnuts.

    Not even Villa Market who has a great selection of liquor online. I got my last bottle of Patron delivered in two hours.. The excuse of kids can buy it is laughable. First we have the no alcohol from From 2 to 5 pm to keep it out of the hands of children and now this. I wonder how the rest of the world gets by asking an alcohol purchaser to show ID. Its just not an option here.

    This is quite annoying. It was quite nice to throw in a bottle of wine with my regular online Tops order.
