Woman refused entry to Thailand after using passport page as toilet paper

It may have seemed like a genius idea at the time, but for British woman Faye Wilson it sure has backfired.

The 28-year-old was denied entry to Thailand by border security after admitting she had ripped pages out of her passport to use as toilet paper.

The woman reportedly told officials that she had ripped two pages out of her passport during a visit to the toilet on a drunken night out.


Ms Wilson had her passport taken off of her and was escorted back to Britain to apply for an emergency one before she could fly to Thailand.
