    Thailand new sex tourism regulations

    Don't know where stickman gets this from as there is no link in his article but he says there are 2 new regulations that will mean foreign nationals taking Thai girls back to hotels will have details of their lady choices recorded and passed to immigration for permanent record against the foreign national.

    The first regulation is the Foreign Service Worker's Card. The card will be required by all female staff working in gogo bars, beer bars and any other bars deemed to employ women who may leave the bar and go elsewhere in the company of a foreign man. What this means, basically, is that all the girls working in the bar districts popular with foreigners in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Udon Thani and possibly even some of the smaller bar areas in more far flung tourist areas will have to apply for the card. Bars will only be able to hire staff with a Foreign Service Worker's Card.
    The second new regulation which, will also be put in place early in second half of the year, requires hotels to register sex workers accompanying a foreign customer to his hotel. The hotel must register her, meaning she must have a Foreign Service worker's Card. What is interesting is that the hotel is required to include her details, alongside those of the customer when it completes its daily visitor report to Immigration.

    Every hotel in Thailand is required to report to the Immigration Department on a daily basis all foreigners staying in the hotel. The report includes the guest's name, nationality and passport number. This system has been in place for a long time. The new regulations mean that the sex worker's details must be recorded to show that she spent time with the foreign national. Essentially, these details are added to the foreign visitor's Immigration record, and not a central database of the Foreign Service Worker Card holders!

    Could be. I think Smeg has a shoe. He said he had it hand-tooled and shipped from Milan for his wedding.
