Alcohol Ban Near Thai Schools, Universities Effective Now

Alcohol ban near Thai schools now enforcedWith a notice published in the Royal Gazette on Thursday, the sale of alcohol near schools, colleges and universities in Thailand is now officially prohibited. The new rule is effective from today, Friday, October 23.
The ban on alcohol sales near educational institutions was first proposed in July. The original order banned the sale of alcohol within a 300-metre radius of schools and universities, unless the locations were in designated entertainment zones.
The order has since been updated and now states only that booze cannot be sold “near” schools and universities, with no specific distance determined, apparently opening the doors to arbitrary enforcement of the law.
With its publication in the Royal Gazette, the order has now become effective. Entertainment venue owners found to be in violation of the alcohol ban can be jailed for up to six months and/or be fined 10,000 Baht.
