I "applied" on line last week.

I live in BKK (so have retirement extension at CW), own my own condo and am doing it purely to register myself living in my own condo.

The form is quite simple and I got a request to confirm my email address almost immediately.

The status of my request is now "pending".

Hopefully it will be approved soon.

That's not what the immigration officer told me yesterday. She said it is based on the date of entry to Bangkok at the airport, 24 hours. In my case this gets very complicated, because I also have a residence in Bangkok and one in another province, so technically I am supposed to report to my provincial immigration office within 24 hours of arriving in Bangkok, but often I stay in Bangkok only. Very confusing.

That is not correct. This is what the immigration act states.

"Section 38 : The house – master , the owner or the possessor of the residence , or the hotel manager
where the alien , receiving permission to stay temporary in the Kingdom has stayed , must notify the
competent official of the Immigration Office located in the same area with that hours , dwelling place or
hotel, within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the alien concerned."

If it was within arrival in the country hotels would be fined every time you checked in if you were traveling within the country.

are you sure you did the TM30 online and not the 90 day report?

if i do tm30 online i never get the status "pending" ...

the tm30 online website has changed the last few months, i think

they continuously try to improve the website ...

Thank you for that. I will cite that section when I meet that young lady again. Obviously, she is wrong as you stated. She fined us 800 Baht too, counting from my arrival at BKK on 31 March returning from a trip abroad.

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

i just put this print out as a receipt in my passport ...

That is enough to prove it was done online. Immigration can check the database for them to confirm it was done.

It is within 24 hours of arrival at your residence not the your entry to country.

I frequently make overland trips from CM to KL. On my return, I stay in resorts along the way but as my gf does all the check ins, the resorts do not register me as they won’t even have my pp details. So it would be a good 2-3 days before I arrive back to CM.

Thus far, I haven’t had any problems with CM immigration.

Not in Phuket, only this F540D7D3-84E5-453F-AD4C-60A0F9E94765.thumb.jpeg.0aabf43364965587cac5ca4c976969e8.jpeg

I am not sure about that.

What would happen if you were staying at a residence that did the reports online? Immigration can check that it was done.

Then you get a BIG BIG fine 🧐 if you have to do something inside Phuket Immigration.

I live in a small private house in Phuket.
The owner is Thai.
In the name of Thai house owner, we could get ID of online TM-30.

"Accommodation Name" was something like
   Phuket ..... residence
 or
   Phuket ..... home
 or
   Villa ..... Phuket
in Thai language, the name of that housing area.
(Sorry, I do not want to up my real address)

Print out of online TM-30 report was accepted by
Phuket immigration officer in the room 103 at retirement extension.
That print out has no stamp or signature, but accepted without any problem.

If Thai owner allows me to use ID and password,
it goes so smoothly.

The Pending relates to my application for a username and password; not the status of my TM30
