Nederland gaat de door de Europese Commissie opgelegde naheffing van 642 miljoen euro gewoon betalen, mits de ‘feiten en cijfers kloppen’. Dat zegt minister Dijsselbloem van Financiën.

Dijsselbloem zei gisteravond in het tv-programma Nieuwsuur dat hij de al afgeronde overheidsbegroting niet wilde aanpassen om de heffing. “Ik ga er niet voor bezuinigen.” Hij noemt de naheffing ‘gewoon een tegenvaller’.

Starting from August 29, the ban will be imposed on any foreigner found to have overstayed his or her visa or visa-exemption period.

The Immigration Bureau decided to mete out such tough punishment after the current penalty, a maximum fine of Bt20,000, had apparently failed to serve as a sufficient deterrent.

Deputy Commander Voravat also said that for expats living here, a Thai driving license or photocopy of your passport can be used as a form of identification.
