Good to hear, but my point was, why not take a break outside Thailand every three months, then no need for 90 day reporting.

 

But then there's need for leaving Thailand every 3 months. I don't see how that helps; kinda like swatting a fly with a hammer. Lot more bother (no comparison really), longer interruption, needless expense. Most of us don't need a break from our break. Require everyone to leave every 90 days and then you really would have knickers twisting and screams of anguish and "killing the goose" from our posters.

It must be rather robotic and pointless every 90 days reporting to immigration

 

Robotic, to a degree perhaps--but can be made interesting. Have a lunch at a different resto along the way (Mike's Mexican comes to mind) or stop by a daytime go-go for a few cool ones. Listen to music through nice earbuds while waiting (5 min at Jomtien, eh). Anyway, you don't even have to report in person. I don't. :)

 

Pointless, no, because Immigration will fine you or worse if you don't report. 

 

I don't see how 90-day reporting would be less robotic and pointless than leaving the country every 90 days.

for reasons I cannot comprehend  

 

I dunno why you can't comprehend that the reason is to comply w/ an Immigration requirement. But it doesn't matter whether you comprehend or not. Isn't it "pointless" to try to argue against an Immigration requirement on this forum? Take it up w/ Immigration.

I lived here 6 years on marriage extensions, but 2 years back I changed to marriage VISA.

I've had some great beach holidays in the Philippines, hiking in the mountains of China, 1 trip  to Burma.

Doesn't cost much and I quite enjoy the excuse for a trip without the wife.

 

Not to mention I get my full British pension because I live in the Philippines (but only holiday in Thailand).

One reason I live in SE Asia is that it's an interesting area of the world for the opportunities to travel around to neighboring countries w/ different cultures if and when one wishes to. I did my share of border runs in the old days. And it can be cheap to do so, though not as cheap mailing in the 90-day report, or doing it online, or paying a Thai a couple 100 baht to go do it. Right? But leaving solely for the purpose of avoiding a 90-day report? Absurd. Only guy I knew doing that had a questionable visa and figured it'd get less attention at the border. If you on the other hand need an excuse and that's all you got, then make lemonade from lemons, man.

You realize that some of those here at TV who are unfamiliar with sarcasm will think you're being serious.

 

There are still some posters who think the April Fool's post saying you could do 90 day reports at Family Mart was serious.

 

 

 

 

I heard a sense of humour is on special promotion at Big C this week.  Suggest a lot of posters get down there asap.

Arrived yesterday at 3 pm.  Was second up for the 90 day.

I thought I always had to complete the forms prior but I had my previous 90 day in my passport.

Was told no forms,  go to the window when called.

3 minutes and 17 seconds later my number came up.  The IO (I thought it was funny) was texting someone.

He never once looked up at me and continued texting while he removed my previous 90 day from my passport, scanned it, signed and placed the new 90 day in my passport.  He handed it to me and nodded, all the while continuing to text.

Could truly care less about his texting like I said, kind of funny.   Just happy with very the quick visit.

Was your previous visit your first as it has been this way for best part of 2 years or so?

Did they say go to "the window" as if so an interesting choice of words, since it is actually a counter/desk :smile:

 

Touch wood, even in the height of high season never had to wait more than 25 minutes since this system came in.

Easy peasy. I sent the girlfriend to do mine for me last month, so even easier.
