    Well I as house possessor registered online and registered myself but if I did not do that the TM.47 would trigger a fine (I assume)..

    Wonder how all of this would have worked 18 months ago when my address was at an office block (Employers head office) in Bangkok ?

    IO only started enforcing this silliness few weeks ago so no issue 18 months ago. An archaic, cumbersome bit of nonsense which hopefully go away in future.

    And I don't think it will be to long before we see some sort of compromise on this TM-30 business.

    And the only reason there will be compromise is simply because their own people are getting fuked over and Somchai don't like that.

    But in the grand scheme of things in Thailand they are always fookin up something or other so it's business as usual innit.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    I believe the TM30 was a knee jerk reaction by the Thai government based on a rumour that BSnot was going to be winched from his basement and apply for a Thai Visa on his way home from an appearance on "My 600LB Life".

    Did you still have your last TM30 stapled in your passport? I've found that they only check for the TM30 when doing an extension. Well that's the time when they done my wife for 400 Baht. Up till then I done my TM47 online. Maybe it's now unavailable? I'll find out in another month all being well.

    If I was you I would check the paper work you got when you applied for the "married" visa, you might be surprised and find a TM30 receipt in amongst it.

    When I went to do my 90 day report at the end of July I thought I would be pro active and have the Missus fill in a new TM30 just in case they asked. While looking through my collection of Immigration paperwork I came across what turned out to be a TM30 receipt that I didn't know had ever been given to them.

    I believe it must have been 1 of the forms that my missus was filling out when we were there applying for the extension. Anyway when I gave him the new form and the old receipt he just gave me back the new one and told me to keep the other receipt with my Passport.

    They are not always arseholes, not to me anyway.

    Things are okay with me regarding a TM30. My references to the TM30 etc in post #357 was directed at Mr Norton. Nothing to do with me. For me, tomorrow I have to go back to immigration to confirm I haven't touched my 400,000 in the last month. Then next week I have to go back again to get the extension stamp.

    Nope. Didn't ask why they didn't ask for it. Who knows what they have in my data base.
    Just saying they didn't mention TM 30 and I sure as hell didn't either.

    Was at Immi today getting a letter of residence. When it was completed I told the IO I was going out of province for a hospital appointment. I asked if I should report when I return or does my landlord? She said neither because I was on a teacher's extension. She said I only have to report if I change houses. This is totally not the same as last fall in the same office. So much inconsistency.

Luckily I had some pics with me.

    I went for my 90 day report in buriram a couple of weeks ago - a couple of minutes in and out no issues. To my knowledge I have never filed a TM30 but have a change of address form stapled in my passport from a year or two ago

    Policies, quirks, and interpretation will vary from locale, time period and individual - regardless of said standing/new statutes.
    Historically, the manner in which it's always been.

    As a long time resident, you certainly should be aware of this by now, Prag.
    Best to patiently roll with the punches and go with the show.

    In the beginning I did roll but of late the pigs at the trough seem to have got greedier. Before immigration try to shaft me for xxx Baht do they ever say 'can you afford it'? Will it cause hardship for your children if we steal this from you? No. They couldn't give two fcuks as to my, or my family's, well being. Jeff if I told you I was being bullied, what would be your reply 'Roll with it'? Beer's finished now. Off to bed.

    Immigration chief: TM 30 law is outdated and needs to change




    Thai immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang has told BBC Thai that the 1979 TM 30 law is outdated and needs to change.

    The news will come as music to the ears of expats and retirees though it remains to be seen exactly what will change, notes Thaivisa.

    The BBC Thai said that moves are underway to adapt TM 30 regulations to bring them more in line with conditions in Thailand forty years after they were brought in.

    Lt-Gen Sompong has reportedly told the BBC in a phone conversation that he is aware of the problems after a storm of online criticism of the regulations.

    These relate to foreigners like expats and retirees having to report their whereabouts if they leave their home address for 24 hours or more. What role landlords should play has also created many problems.

    For tourists this is normally not a problem as the reporting is usually done by hotels and guest houses.

    The immigration chief added that since August 31st developments have been put in place to "relieve the problems being experienced by foreigners residing in the country".

    He was tight lipped about exactly what these would entail saying there were many things to consider such as the economy, tourism and national security.

    BBC Thai said that Lt-Gen Sompong had called the 1979 regulations out of date and there needed to be changes to bring them in line with the modern day situation in Thailand.

    In other news today a Phalang Pracharat spokesman has just said he had attended a meeting regarding a TM 47 online app on Wednesday that promised good news and that TM 28 and TM 30 would be discussed with immigration as early as Friday (13 Sept).

    again from ThaiVisa

    Good news coming for expats regarding 90 day reporting - TM 28 and TM 30 being discussed Friday


    Picture: Daily News

    Thai media has reported that foreigners will be happy with a new online application for ninety day reporting or TM 47.

    They said that the app will be convenient, fast and safe.

    Daily News based their brief story on comments made on the Facebook page of Dr Kobsak Pootrakool who is a spokesman for the Phalang Pracharat political party.

    Dr Kobsak said that he had attended a meeting with immigration and the DGA (Digital Government Development Agency) on Wednesday to sort out matters relating to the app for TM 47 or the 90 day reporting requirement.

    Many expats and retirees have found the application hard to use, notes Thaivisa.

    In addition Dr Kobsak said that a meeting would be taking place on Friday to discuss matters related to TM 28 and TM 30.

    These relate to the requirements of individuals and landlords to report their whereabouts or those in their properties who leave their stated address for periods of longer than 24 hours.

    Daily News said foreigners would be cheering regarding TM 47 application developments.

    Thaivisa has contacted Dr Kobsak for further comment but has yet to hear back from him.

    Making on line TM30 and TM47 easier to use is just polishing the turd.

    Both should be dumped never to return.

    Agree with you. However, no skin off my teeth and really no bother to me provided I can do it from the comfort of my home. Takes me all of two minutes to file my 90 day reps on-line. A few years now and batting a hundred. The worse case was I had to wait 3-4 days to get my confirmation during a Songkran holiday.

    Never had a problem with my IO's (Nonthaburi office) pleasant and accommodating. As per the TM30 reports I was told filing within a week was fine and I could do it on-line. Really it just amounts to more work for them. Now Nonthaburi seems a pretty "lax" and uncrowded office. Lots of asian workers renewing permits and doing 90 day reports, few falang. Never had to wait. In and out within an hour or two.

    TM28's and TM30's, if they also fall into a five minute drill on the computer - no problem. Hell, I'm retired. Won't need to take a crowbar to my schedule.
