Police General Ruangsak indicated that these officials are needed to facilitate filing reports by foreigners and giving out directions to foreign tourists during the Songkran long holiday. Currently, there are 25 major tourist spots that are popular among foreigners in Thailand.

The order was prompted by a report showing police stations and public service centers failing to help a large number of foreigners seeking assistance because the officials did not understand English.
