TM30 explained for landlords and tenants

They will in the near future be asking travellers leaving the country why the TM30 has not been completed. This information is available on their computer terminal and linked to your passport and to the NEW design arrival/departure card and to every immigration point throughout Thailand.

Source for this? This doesn't make any sense

Can you give us some background on how come to claim  to have such information -

How do you know?

In your other thread regarding Hotel raids etc I noticed you used the phrase 

Quote

We encourage anyone............

Who's we?

 

This may be the letter of the law but already interpretation reported in some offices is that this is not the case "For other foreigners, maybe living here or staying longer periods."

The point of all of this is what? when they can have records going back decades of expats living at the same address why is it necessary, after completing an arrival card with the address on  (yet again) to turn up within 24 hours and tell them all over again? It is rather annoying that many of us have to report our address over and over which can be a house or condo we paid for, and where we have been for years without moving. IMO it's madness, but they must have a valid reason for suddenly implementing it over the past year or so. Got fined today for not doing it and was told have to redo every time you re enter the kingdom, within 24 hours with a weeks grace.

Anyone know how to report it online?

Never been asked for it, don't know what the OP is on about for those on 'retirement' visas anyway.

I have been on a retirement extension for years, went in today to renew and was fined for not filling out this TM30, your time will come I expect

You are probably right, mind you I haven't been back to the UK for 3 years and don't intend to.

Is it really necessary to go to immigration and fill out a TM30 when returning to Thailand? The TM6 we fill out when entering includes an address in Thailand.

Apparently it now is, I brought up the TM6 but that is not enough it seems. I must say the officer we saw was very patient and professional in explaining it all.

As you have read his other thread already, you certainly noticed he never give any source, any name or any link. He just copy other articles from Facebook posts, regardless of theem being news or rumour. :whistling:

 

There are many things false in his OP of this thread. By example :


> A TM30 is required to be completed within 24 hours of arrival at whichever building a foreigner is staying in. This applies to ALL foreigners regardless of, if they are visiting Thailand for a short holiday, or if they are living here more permanently.


False. Jomtien refuses TM30 of people living here on Retirement extension. (They refused mine)

 

Retirement, no - the retirement-desk handles agent-submitted (extra fee) applications from all over Thailand, and is flush with cash, so seem to leave retirees alone. 

But, if you are applying for a Thai-family-based extension, or if you need to extend a tourist-type entry (visa or exempt), you will need to have a TM-30 (and possibly pay a fine) to get service.

> They are now asking for your TM30 when you report to immigration for your 90 day report, which obviously only applies to long stay visitors. 


False again. I made many 90-Days reports without any TM30

Enforcement varies by immigration office, and sometimes by "which desk" in a particular office (in Jomtien).  At Chang Wattana in Bangkok, TM-30s are not needed at all.  At other offices, expect a fine of 1600 or 2000 Baht (also depends on the office) if one was not submitted.

> Remember foreigners should carry their passport at all times according to Thai Law. 


False again. Many articles and speeches of high ranked Police officers on this subject. An official ID such as a Thai Driving Licence is enough.

This is a matter of enforcement - it is the law you should have it.  You are very unlikely to be arrested for not having it if you have a copy of the face-page and current permitted-stay stamp (which I keep on a laminated card and pics on my phone) - even less likely if you have a Thai drivers license.  But it is recommended that you have "easy access" to your passport, such that a friend or relative can bring it quickly if need-be.

My son, wife and two children will shortly be here for three days and two nights and will probable never visit Thailand again ... we are in Nonthaburi ... do we need to inform anyone?? They will stay at our home ... Their passports will be British and Spanish ...Will they need to give our address to Immigration at arrivals...I assume that they will get a VOA here  ...they are heading for The UK
