BANGKOK (Bernama) – Thai and Bruneian diplomats and officials visiting one another’s countries will be exempted from visa requirements for a period of no more than 30 days, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.
Government spokesman Dr Yongyuth Maiyalarp told a press conference on Tuesday that the Thai Cabinet had approved the visa exemption during its weekly meeting held at the Government House earlier in the day.
“Both sides can deny entry or shorten the length of stay of travellers for peacekeeping, morality and health reasons,” he said.
Thai Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister General Tanasak Patimaprakorn will sign the agreement with Brunei officials.
Dr Yongyuth said the visa exemption is aimed at strengthening ties between the two neighbouring countries and to facilitate travel or transit of officials and diplomats.
