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?

Sent from my SM-A700FD using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

IF this works, great. 

 

However, some ThaiVisa posters have reported that the online Webpage for TM30 has some problems. 

In my experience these online government Apps never work, the 'DLT checkIn' App to report cheating taxi's etc has never worked !!... 

 

So.. It will be very interesting to see if this works throughout the country and if so its an excellent step forwards, but I'll not hold my breath just yet. 

I'm with you hear buddy. It seems strange that the internet hit of ASEAN cannot get any of its governmental application to function. I wonder what the non-hub countries must be like? Terrible I bet, that Singapore for example, I bet nothing works there.

The system is only as good as the weakest link. 

 

1. Owner can't be bothered... 

 

2. Website or app doesn't work 

 

Or all if the above

Not a good idea. The authorities will want at least 100,000 baht per bracelet.

Brilliant idea. Also make farangs pay for the 90 day parole appointment. More feed in the trough.

"Application provider of Immigration Bureau - According to section 38 of the 1979 immigration act, "House owners, heads of household, landlords or managers of hotels who accommodate foreign nationals on a temporary basis who stay in the kingdom legally, must notify the local immigration authorities within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the foreign national via Mobile Application"

 

What about the illegal ones?

This is only for people who own a property where a foreigner is staying, for any length of time.

 

The foreigner staying at the place do not need to have a copy of this and is not in any way responsible for doing this. It's all up to the owner of the property.

 

The three cases when it will involve the foreigner is:

 

1. If a foreigner is living in his own condo he has to do this every time he returns from a trip outside Thailand.

 

2. If a foreigner is living in a condo or house, owned by his wife, his wife has to do this.

 

3. If a foreigner is renting out a property to another foreigner he has to do this.

 

If this an immigration law, and we complete an immigration form when entering the country that demands to know the address we are staying at in Thailand, why does immigration then also need my wife to tell them that I have arrived at the address I have already given them?

This is absolutely true according to the rules. The problem is that neither the IO or the house owner no about this, so you have to do it yourself. For five years I have tried to explain exactly this to two IO;s and my wife, as we live half the year in the south and a half in my wife's house in the north, but none beliefs me.

So theres really no need for a foreigner to report themselves, it implies?

 

I believe this is correct - The onus is on whoever allows the foreigner to stay at the address, not the foreigner themselves.
