Customs Department has adjusted procedures at Suvarnabhumi Airport to ensure faster service.

Paisal Chuenjit, director of the Passenger Processing Division at Suvarnabhumi Airport’s Customs Bureau, said a total of 300 customs officials will service the new airport when it opens later this month, up from 210 at Bangkok International Airport (Don Muang).

Officials will be divided into four shifts. There will be 20 counters for travelers to declare goods, each equipped with an X-ray machine.

Paisal revealed that a new data checking system will be implemented. Passenger and flight information will be forwarded to the bureau before an aircraft arrives. Officials hope this system quickens the declaration of goods at customs and immigration procedures.

The bureau will also implement a new tax payment practice. Under the current system, travelers were inconvenienced by having to bring certain declared goods to a counter away from the passenger terminal in order to pay tax.

At Suvarnabhumi Airport, it will be a one stop service with travelers able to pay the necessary tax at the customs counter. (TNA)
