British man arrested for long overstay, investigated for alleged selling of tours
Krabi Immigration Police have arrested a British man for overstaying his visa by 262 days.
The man is also being investigated on suspicion of illegally selling tour packages on Koh Phi Phi.
Krabi immigration officers arrested 38-year-old Christopher Dali on Monday.
The British national faces charges for overstaying his visa by 262 days, and he could be blacklisted from entering the Kingdom in the future.
A hotel on Koh Phi Phi has also been charged and fined for not reporting his stay to the Immigration Department as part of the routine international-guest registration within 24 hours.
The arrest came after a video clip of a foreign man selling package tours to tourists near the hotel went viral on social media.
Dali claimed he was not selling any package tours, but had merely been waiting for his Thai friend.
Police are continuing their investigation into his alleged involvement in the illegal selling of package tours.
