Thailand is developing a database that officials hope to use to track foreign visitors, including investors, migrant workers and tourists, from the moment they step foot in the country to when they leave in an attempt to fight human trafficking and other crimes. The plan calls for passport scanners and fingerprint readers to be installed at immigration checkpoints, and for hotels, guesthouses and other accommodations to keep records of visitors and report their movements to police stations or immigration offices. “The single platform database would help prevent crimes by foreigners, such as callcentre scams and those related to underworld activities,” said a government official.
