Thailand's "blacklist" is the term used to describe a list of people who have been banned from entering Thailand by the Thailand Immigration Department.
Bans on entry to Thailand are usually related to criminal offenses. Being "blacklisted" may be a permanent or temporary order. Temporary orders can vary in duration. The Immigration Department imposes standards for blacklisting based on the seriousness of the offense.
In many cases, a motion, supported by evidence, can be filed to request a person to be removed from Thailand's blacklist. Being removed from the blacklist would allow entry into Thailand for formerly blacklisted individuals.
Blacklisting generally occurs after a conviction. The opposite order of blacklisting is a travel ban. Blacklisting prevents a person from entering Thailand. However, persons facing criminal charges may also have a travel ban imposed on them, preventing them from leaving Thailand until the criminal case is resolved.
