Phuket Launch Yacht Online Check-in

The Software Industry Promotion Agency (SIPA) have been working on the online check-in since last year. The system will reduce the time it takes for yacht owners to submit forms to Immigration, Customs and the Marine Department by combining three forms into a single form. Yacht owners can fill in information in advance via the internet after registering online to use the system.  Information needed include the vessel’s name, arrival time, crew list, passenger list, cargo manifest. When arriving at the Chalong Pier marina passengers only need to bring documents such as passports and yacht registration. Government officials will also be able to plan how many officers are needed at the marina as they will now know how many yachts will be arriving.

The online check-in system for yachts arriving in Phuket will launch on September 1st with the marina officially opening around the end of this year.
