Prachuap Khiri Khan scrambles to upgrade Singkhon Border Pass as permanent crossing point
Prachuap Khiri Khan considers upgrade of Singkhon Border Pass into permanent crossing point to promote economic growth and tourism.
Chief provincial district officer Somphorn Patchimphet said that Prachuap Khiri Khan province has called on Thai and Myanmar authorities to endorse the Regional Border Committee's (RBC) topographic survey on the Singkhorn Pass, which will see the border pass be upgraded to a permanent crossing point to accommodate the border area's growing economy and tourism industry.
The province has submitted a proposal to the Ministry of the Interior to consider allowing Myanmar nationals visiting Prachuap Khiri Khan to stay for 14 days for those with border passes and seven days for temporary passes, and to allow the access of eight districts in the province to promote mutual trade, investment and tourism.
