    I consider it a brilliant Government strategy to keep tabs on us Expats and any other person who decides to hang around for more than 90 days.

    For the Ex-pat who is straight up and not working illegally the 90 day report is piss easy.

    In BKK it's a quick in and out at Rama 9, if ya live up in shitsville well suck it up bitches and move to the city where proper people live.

    Failing that, do it on line.

    It's not that hard unless one is a freaking moaning retard.

    Jesus Christ, lots of Farang cry rivers.

    Hate their home country and hate a shitty little 90 day report in Thailand.

    Birding is right.
    It's actually about 2 minutes though from the time you sit down till the time you say thanks and stand up. I do mine at Jomtien, get there early when there's no big queues and it's totally pain free.

    After 90 days in Thailand I'm ready to report to the Samaritans. I just couldn't face another fkn 90 days stuck in a 3rd world environment.
    So to answer your question of why the 90 day report, because Thais have sussed that Farang who want to live long time in Thailand must be strange.

    You must give it up to the Thai though, they are light years ahead of controlling farang than many other countries.

    They have it dialed in, Farang will only ever be tolerated as visitors and I salute the Thai for that.

    Unfortunately the Farang can be very low rent, the Government Know that and keep a lid on us.

    No problems there.

    But unfortunately do fcuk all about it. The Immigration Dep't must be making good monies out of ignoring the wrong doers. When it decides to flex its muscle they take the easy option, IMO, and hound the legits who do everything by the book.

    Yes Ok,

    So out of the untold Farang who hang around this joint there are a few who have permanent residency.

    These lot are the real deal who have been here forever with proper jobs, speak Thai and are fully committed.

    Jesus, the vast majority of Farang are havin a pint and a few bowls of sticky rice.

    Love the way the Thai treat Farang as suspicious, we are only temporary guests at best and rightly so.

    Play their game or go home, it's incredibly easy really.

    Terry, did you happen to take a holiday over to the middle east these last several months? Your posts seem to be much darker and more anti-west lately.

    Online/mail/get the office chick to do it/agent.

    My work permit does not stipulate my work hours.

    11 years here now for the same employer, all the red tape and hoops really are not a bother if all your paperwork is in order.

    It states your work location. It does not say you cannot leave the premises.

    What after you are supposed to check in to where legally and according to your work permit you should be working and you have twenty technicians waiting for you?

    You are obviously on a retirement visa!

    My work permit is BOI and most certainly does not stipulate you must be at your place of employment for the full duration of work hours stipulated in your work contract.

    Surely you have personal days available that can be used if you are that tied to the place ?

    The point I am trying to make is even after going through the hoops of being awarded a work permit here you still must go to the immigration office to basically prove you are there when according to your work permit you should be somewhere else.

    Most of the immigration and work permit people I speak with about this fact agree with me it is farcical.

    And I always keep my passport with me, not handing it to any agent who I do not know. Thai law also states you should always have your passport with you or unless someone here can educate me that is not the case.

    I have a video of the key pages of mine in my phone. Much better at proving the visa and more convenient than carrying around various unlinked photocopies.


    I would have thought most expats who don't work do it in person and those who work and can't get away do it by post.

    Ohh ok, yeah I only go to immigration once every 2 years to renew my permission to stay extension (as well as my work permit as I go to One Stop), have no reason to go there otherwise.

    Shame it is so tough on you and it surpises me part of your work permit stipulates you must be at the place of employment at all times during the work hours stated on your work contract (something ive never heard of until you mentioned it), should get a job with a BOI company.. lots more freedom it seems !!

    As for the passport thing, the law seems to vary depending on which official is spouting "officialdom", Mine lives in my safe at home, along with my work permit.

    My understanding is that you must be able to present your passport within a reasonable amount of time, if asked. This means you do not have to carry your passport on your person and keeping it locked up in a safe place is perfectly fine.

    I don't fill out anything. Takes me 35 minutes to drive to Kap Cheong. Hand them my passport. 5 minutes later they return it to me with a document stamped with my next reporting date.

    I obviously do not have the same contacts as others here but have been told you must carry your passport with you at all times.

    As for my work permit I have had to open two offices with my company name and registration on the front door because that is where I could be on any given day. Doing things legally here is important unless you have inside contacts obviously.

    LT, have you ever been asked for your passport by police outside of immigration, or told by a Thai that you must carry it at all times?

    I have no inside contacts but am sure the company I work for are doing things legally.

    90 day reporting is a cake walk, I do it online or if that is down someone from HR does it in person for me, helps our head office is withing walking distance of one stop though.

    I have 4 "work" addresses listed on my work permit and I only spend 4 hours a day at my primary place of employment, the other 5 hours of the day I spend working remotely from home (my home is listed on my work permit), The other 2 I may visit once a year.

    Iam sure there was a shit load of hoops to jump through for all this though.
