Immigration won't accept my TM30 registration

Fill out a TM28 instead. This form is for aliens to self register. Take the paperwork you have.

This is the form I use. Apart from the usual passport details, I take along copies of:-

Lease agreement.

Owner's ID.

Tabien Bahn.

Hand-drawn map.

Photo of me in front of house with address number visible.

 

Never had a problem.

Cannot - The landlord promised to give me a copy of his ID card and tabian bahn, but didn't do this before he went back to Bangkok.  Despite daily calls to request these, he's failed to provide them to me.

It is becoming very apparent that if you rent a place to live you should get the support of the owner/ agent wrt submitting TM30s. I find the above very aggravating, that a large 5000 fine may be enforced. I would deduct it from the rent!

Will your office accept online 90 day reporting?

Even if it did, it would only postpone the telling day until such time as the OP needed to apply for an extension of stay.

Not sure why he would otherwise need to have any dealings with his local immigration office then. If he was staying in Thailand on the basis of, say, a multi-entry non-O visa, making border runs exery 90 days would obviate the need for 90-day reporting.

We have a tenant (a teacher at an international school, in Bangkok) who has been badgering me to do the TM30 for her and her family for several months, because the school has been warning of dire consequences if not done. I fall on the side of "best to ignore until action is unavoidable" and assured tenant we'd pay any fines that might be levied. Finally I suggested that she was welcome to do it herself at CW. We provided a letter of authority (in Thai) from my wife, copy of ID and copy of purchase contract for the house in question - this latter doc because the tabian ban for that house doesn't show anyone registered there, as we're all on the tabian ban for another property. Took her all morning a couple of weeks ago now and there was a fine of THB 3,200 (THB 800 per family member at the address) for not registering within 24 hours.

If he had such a Visa, border runs/ trips out of Thailand would be obligated  every 90 days of course.

He could also have an OA Visa.  

One option I believe I should not recommend, but is there when one cannot get a TM30 report done, is avoiding (or removing), the needs to use immigration.

as u know most all immigration's requires these copies PLUS a POA, ( phuket)  if the landlord wont go to immigration,.

 

You know this, ur not some newbie in Thailand, so why post they refused?

You dont have the required docs...

"Do they simply forget that it was them that stopped you registering !! Unbelievable..."

    What's that got to do with anything...Everybody gets refused for whatever they apply for if they haven't got the correct paperwork?
