I was also there today. I was surprised how efficient they were, I usually dread the time wasted, but I was out in about 2 hrs. Truly the first time, I can say they seemed to have there systems working.

Did you have time to do the multiply entry in the afternoon, or you don't need it?

I wouldn't even bother to do reentry permit even if I was at CW. Take very little time at airport. To each their own I guess.

I have done it online but alas they are surpassing their usual ineptness online if that's even possible.

G’day ! my 20th time of applying for temporary stay in Thailand for purpose of Retirement.  Here’s the story :

I first swung by the bank at 08.30 for ‘the’ letter which confirms the balance of funds in my account (using the Baht 800,000 method). For those astute enough I originally missed out by a month or two on the former Baht 400,000 requirement). Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose!  Now further loss as an Aussie with the new monetary requirements imposed on me thanks to my Embassy.

I have always maintained bank funds above the Baht 800,000,  rationale being that was the cost of staying in Thailand; I’m glad I did it that way now.

So I clocked in at the immigration counter at 09.20 with the queue ticket showing 55 persons ahead of me. I didn’t exactly check the time but around 11.00 my number came up.

Was there any mention of keeping the money in the bank for the next 3 months and 400K until next extension.  Any mention from the IO on whether they will check at next extension?

You must sign that you have been provided statement outlining these new rules and you are provided a copy in Thai and English.  No mention of check (but I was not using account money).

Yes TM30 receipt or reporting was required today.  He mentioned providing a copy in OP.  I had in Passport and they made a copy and had me sign it during processing.  Indeed it appeared quite organized (and that is saying a lot with all the paperwork required) but expect total time was also effected by many having to visit desk B for TM30 reporting as they had no idea it was required.  Those with all ducks in a row made a quick swim in/out - but many were feeling more than a bit upset from my brief conversations as they had no understanding of what this new requirement was or how to do it. 

 

Edit:  the bell rang - understand you asking if poster did TM30 during his 2 hour visit.  Getting too long in the tooth I fear.  Sorry.  But from experience previous week 2 hours sounds right as many queue numbers seem to not appear so desk B moves quite fast (and they seem to have 4 full time desks operating).  

I was not quoting OP. I was asking another member re TM30.

That was not posters question. He asked "was there any mention...." to me that's asking if verbally mentioned.

Ha...perhaps its me getting too long in tooth. 

I'm out to dinner and read your post to quickly. Thought you were referring to me.

As for TM30....Seems to be lottery. Few being fined. Some having to do tm30 and not being fined. 

Many guys like myself haven't been asked at CW for one over many years. 

I plan to do one via mail before next extension. In another thread member in same boat as me posted he (for first time) did a tm30 via mail a week back. I await to see how he goes.

Not sure why the OP made trip to cw recently before his extension. He still was fined. Let's hope it calms down soon.

I didn't bother, half a day is enough to spend there for me but luckily I am located not too far from the immigration office so I will go back later and do it.

I decided to do it earlier because I did not want to spend all day at CW.  I don't live too far away from CW so not a big deal for me. Just my choice.
