I searched on Thai Immigration Section 38 and TM30 App in a large variety of ways but could not find any app...how did you locate it?.... never mind...I failed to read all of the posts and now see there is one which lists the location of the app!

 

My Google accounts are U.S. based, and I don't see it either when I search Google Play on my accounts...

 

But I did find the following:

 

TM6:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.etm6

 

Immigration E Services for Foreigners:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.immeService

 

The author of both is listed as "immigration Bureau."  Can someone else who sees it advise who the author is listed as for the TM30 app???

The legal burden of reporting is on the owner of the building, not the occupant. Always been that way. Of course, if the owner can't be bothered/doesn't know how.....

 

But at least at BKK CW Immigration, they're fining the TENANTS when they go to do their annual extensions of stay without a TM30 if they've had any out of country travel during the preceding year.

 

And I've yet to hear any reports here of a fined tenant later advising that Immigration also ended up going after their residence owner.  Immigration appears to be going to the easy cash/low hanging fruit -- ie, those farang folks who actually have to show up each year in the Immigration offices.... which Thai property owners don't have to do.

With the proviso that my Google accounts are U.S. based....

 

--When I search for that app by name or by author in Google Play, I don't see it.

 

--When I click your link above, it brings up the Play Store page for the app and lists it as "incompatible with all of your devices."   Which must be a country thing, because it's certainly not a device thing, considering the number and recency of Android devices I own.

well done Thai Immigration if the app actually works.

 

A pity that they started fining people for their landlord not filing a TM30 before they brought out the app.

 

For me, They expected my property owner to take a day off work, do a round trip of 400Km to file an overdue TM30 in person. 

 

As I live upcountry and visit Bangkok each week they ask me to file a TM30 twice every week.

 

So I really hope there is an easy app to follow the application of the rules.

If no one has noticed but there is no Silicon Valley in Thailand.  

In-country programs leave a lot to be desired.  They are probably still using Dbase running on NT 3.1.

Yes, we are. We steal their women, take all the jobs and have more money and better education than them.

 

Wouldn't you be scared ???? 🙂

One out of three....we dont steal their women as they still have their Thai boyfriend or husband in tow, even though you dont know. Falling XE means our own money is almost worthless, but yes we are better educated

Ubon Ratchathani Immigration posted what they said was a convenient way for home owners and other property owners to report the presence of a foreigner staying within 24 hours...

Does that mean that each immigration office had its own "Section 38" app?

 

There is already the nationwide app Immigration eServices:

No.  I just downloaded the app and I was able to check my two registration applications.  one at Bangkok and one at Lopburi. Still both in progress

Seen it, done it, use it already.  Very easy.  If you fail to report Guests you could be in for a fine of 8,000 baht per Guest for first offence as happened to one Owner on Koh samui who had several people staying in his residence........sort of cut his net takings a bit!

What is the use of this information? Why does the police need to know everywhere I am at all times? Are foreigners a danger to Thai's?

In case they feel the urge to throw you and everyone they feel like - OUT!  Is it BS?  YEP!  I agree with you,  WHY does thai immigration need to know our movements.  I draw my location with crayons and GPS coordinates; these morons still cannot follow them.
