There are been approximately 9,000 people in Phuket that purchased new cars as part of the government project.
Mr.Pairat Kurima – Phuket Excise said “We have increased the number of officials at our office to ensure we can serve the people. However, we would like to inform people to please prepare the required documents prior to coming to the office. There are a number of people turning up who have not prepared their documents meaning that people waiting behind them in the queue are waiting longer than necessary. Those requiring documents can download them from the Excise Department’s website.”
