I have a specific question about the TM30 registration - can it be done online if I live in a house? I am following the link from the Immigration website and reading all the information here:-

 

https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn24online/#

 

Now, its headline is it only for businesses, but I dug a little deeper and it would appear that you can register a house or apartment (click down on the first box when you go to 'Register').

 

It would appear that this is now a service open to all homeowners to register their properties and thus complete this online. Has anyone tried/achieved this?

Some immigration offices will issue a login and password for the site after completing the online registration.

Do you know if that includes Chaengwattana?

I am not sure they will do it. Perhaps try doing the registration to see what they do.

My wife did this for our house in Phuket recently, having gone into Phuket immigration and completed the application forms.   A couple of days later she was emailed her log on/password details.    Apart from the occasional notification for myself if I'm away, we do occasionally get friends staying with us, so very handy.

looks pretty straightforward apart from the address details need to be entered in Thai to use the drop down menus - but no big deal really. During the registration process, one of the fields you have to complete is "Accommodation Name" what did your wife enter in that field? Seems like its looking for a hotel/resort name... not sure what to enter for a private residence.

All advice welcome.

That was perhaps the most significant challenge.   When my wife registered, there was the supposition on the part of the IO's that she was running a business.   Took a while though was accepted, that it was merely to register friends who were staying with us.   The good thing is that it works for me also, as although we don't holiday as such, sometimes I do cycling trips/events and go away for one or two nights.  M'Sahib can log me in when required.

Are we able to make such a report, bearing in mind that Farang are not supposed to own a house?

Which Immigration offices will accept?

You mean them trying to "have it both ways"?  So, we cannot own a house, so we are not responsible for TM-30s.  But we are responsible for TM-30s (cannot get anything done without them).   Foreigners can own condos.

Best to open a spreadsheet and input all immigration offices into the first column.  Label the second column "yes/no" and third "conditions."  Then, watch this forum and begin updating the 2nd and 3rd columns - changing as required as the offices change their minds, especially on the 3rd column.

In other words, like many other policies - it varies by office.  The best you can do is hope someone here can report with recent experience at the office you use.

There is no issue with a foreigner owning a house.

The problem is that you cannot print out a receipt and put in the your passport, and with all that problems that follow.

You are exactly right. This whole issue of TM 30 is causing lots of residual problems and issues. For example, yesterday I went to do a 5 year drivers license renewal, and had read reports that even with a work permit you are now required to show proof of residence. Sure enough so went to immigration to do that. While there, they required first that your TM 30 be  in order and fined me several days for not having immediately (within 24 hours) made the TM30 upon my last entrance to Thailand recently, so paid the fine, and got the printed TM30 receipt in my passport, and also then got the proof of residency for the drivers license. So, many things are now tied to this damn TM 30, and it forces you to comply or face fines and being unable to do other things.

 

Further, in chatting with the lady doing this at immigration, she said they will be cracking down on this hard at airports now, so expect to be fined on the spot there from now on if not in compliance. Honestly I had never done a TM30 previously thinking I was immune due to work permit etc., and that is all changed. Everyone must do it. Not only that, you must do it at the immigration office where you are officially registered, and within 24 hours of arrival in country. So, I can't imagine how people who live in far away provinces are going to get this done in time. Totally nuts.

As in, people who own condo's will be cracked down right.. as the law stated? Not just people living in said condo's

Yes, people who own Condos, but in my case, I live in my own house, which my wife owns, and if my wife hasn't done the report, this affects my ability to do things not being in compliance. So, this does create lots of potential problems whether you own your own condo, or live with someone who officially owns your dwelling. The onus is on the homeowner, but it affects you too.
