We had all the relevant documents, written 2 page application form, which I downloaded ,copies of Daughters and Grandsons (age 6) passports,face page and entry stamps, copy of wife's blue book,her ID card........I was just an observer.

 

In today's TV news one person a home owner was fined in Pattaya for non filing of TM 30 when he had guests,guess you just have to be unlucky.

 

When my daughter came through Imm in Bangkok she just wrote Hang Dong as place of stay as she has always done .She was asked where in Hang Dong, officer seemed content when she mentioned our village name. 

 

 

Well done you can relax now.Bloody ridiculous when you step back and look at it!

It is ridiculous especially when its family members but they are the hoops we have to jump through.

A simple solution is people could register their address with Immigration at the countries entry point, in my daughters case Bangkok.

 

The TM 30 room had as many people waiting than downstairs and just creates even more paperwork. Now my wife is registered we can next time do it online, providing it works .

You got me. I do 90 day notifications online, but don't have a clue as to how to get the TM30 update done online. Clue us in, please.

A good video, THANKS, but do you really expect me grind through two hours looking for the procedure to update the TM30 online? So, if I travel to another province and stay at a registered hotel, that's taken care of, but if I visit a friend how is this done online? And, I believe, on return to my home, it has to be done again. So, how does my wife do that online? The explanation for that shouldn't require two hours discussion by a panel of farangs and I doubt it really is possible if you don't own your own hotel.  Just explain it, please. One can only conclude after struggling with a six week siege by an uninvited guest that the authorities have no genuine interest in policing the law, only in collecting fines when extending a visa and the TM30 is absent or doesn't match the current address. I do agree with the one fellow; indeed, since the TM30 rules became so strict domestically I haven't left my house and expect to die in it eventually, even though I'm convinced it doesn't matter much. One of these day's I'll finish the video, it does look worthwhile.

For someone that has been here for so long

Plus has given so much advise

I thought you would have been up with everything

Go to the TM 30 website

Register

With all the relevant documents that are required

Then when approved with the user name and password

use The TM 30 App

If you had taken the trouble to watch you may have learned a few things

I took the trouble to watch

As many things have been happening thanks to certain people in Bangkok 

Looking out for all of us who live here

A simple question deserves a simple answer, not a smart one. A straightforward one would also include the web link.

TM 30 is easy to do, always has been. Stop making a mouse into an elephant.

You can tell this site is mostly elderly retirees. Read the link you posted carefully: 

 

...You have to register in order to use the online reporting. It is primarily meant to be used by hotels and etc but a few immigration offices allow individuals to register. This is the login  page for doing it. https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn24online...

 

Ok, the online primary purpose is for hotels, guest houses, and such. Damned if I'm going to ask my wife to plow through a crowd of unknown individuals willing to bend the rules so she can beg to play hotel. If we had tons of foreign visitors it might be worth the trouble, but we rarely leave the nest; otherwise we'll just stop in at Immigration and say Hello as we always do when needing an updated TM30. But some of us are surely like you, Nancy, of the upper crust and could tell us which IOs are pliable and which are not and how to bend their ears. So let us know. THANKS!

I have looked at the registration form which is in English

 

What I do not see is the required documents to submit with the form

 

Does anyone know the document requirements

There's no helping some people. 

 

I certainly don't know which IOs are "pliable" and how to bend their ear and am taken aback at the suggestion that I do.  I play by the rules. 

 

I find it very convenient to live in a condo building where the office staff files TM30 reports and updates for the residents.  Perhaps others should consider this option if they require hand-holding.

Sorry, Nanc. Don't be such a grumpy kitty. My comments related to the statements in the post you referenced, not you personally. The bottom line as I read it was that there is no online TM30 meant for ordinary folk, but if you have good enough reason, you might be able to get there if you can convince the right person. What I was looking for was something from the horsey's mouth pointing to an equivalent of the online 90 day report, but it seems there is no parallel there. I didn't mean to be rude, honestly.

I live in a single family home...... I registered at the referenced sites.  I have made a report with the Android app and it is registered in their database.  I made the "report" from my mobile phone while sitting in the airport.

Hot dang. Really. I'll remember that. I haven't been anywhere in the last eleven years though. Well, except for two emergency trips to the US a couple of years ago to help out a friend. I will definitely give it a go the next time I go. Immigration isn't as personal as it used to be anyway. Thanks.
