Seven Uganda women were arrested for working illegally as prostitutes on Walking Street, although they were on tourist visa.

On 26 May 2011, Police Lieutenant Colonel, Greeta Tamkanarat (Deputy Superintendent), the leader of Children & Women Protection Centre and Human Trafficking Suppression team (C&WPC and HTS team) conducted a successful sting operation and arrested three Uganda women, allegedly accused of prostitution in Pattaya.

Three Uganda females, Edith Tasenga Mpomwiza, 22, Teddy Namwanga, 41 and Emilly Nalugo 29 were caught at Marine Hotel in South Pattaya.

Upon interrogation, police discovered four more women involved in prostitution and immediately arrested them at a bar in Walking Street.

The Uganda women confess that they work as prostitutes in Pattaya while they are on tourist visa, an officer said.

The police detained these suspects until they were sentenced.



Many nationalities arrive in Bangkok are issued ‘Visa on Arrival’ at Suvarnabhumi airport ; however, Ugandans must obtain tourist visas at the:

Honorary Consulate in Kampala

Plot 10 Kalitunsi Road, Bugolobi
PO Box 5961


No mention in the article of the ‘visa fees’ the ‘seven lovlies’ paid to travel to Pattaya for the ‘alledged’ holiday;  or the cost of deportation.
