The database used by Phuket Immigration is not linked to the one breached on Sunday, the Phuket Immigration Chief has assured.

The assurance by Phuket Immigration Superintendent Col Sunchai Chokkajaykij follows the immigration data breach on Sunday (Mar 27) that saw personal details of thousands of foreign nationals living in Southern Thailand leaked online.

The breach revealed passport details of foreigners in the South, and even maps pinpointing where foreigners lived, with flags representing the foreigners’ nationalities. (See story here.)

“Our database is secure,” Col Sunchai told The Phuket News today.

“Expats need not to worry, as our system is not linked to the one used by the Immigration Office in Nakhon Sri Thammarat,” he assured.

However, Col Sunchai did not elaborate on what information – if any – regarding expats and tourists in Phuket may have been kept – and exposed – by the breached database.

The database breached on Sunday exposed online the names, addresses, professions and passport numbers of more than 2,000 foreigners living in Thailand’s southern provinces, but mainly those residing in Nakhon Sri Thammarat province.

Col Sunchai also did not elaborate on what measures his office had taken to prevent such data breaches of private information stored by Phuket Immigration.
