Naew Na reported the latest immigration action against Thai nationals who failed to report foreigners residing at their addresses within 24 hours.

 

It was not specified if they were hotel or guest house owners, landlords or other property owners all of whom need to report foreigners at their addresses. 

 

In Surat Thani, Anon Sutsai, 23, was fined 8,000 baht. (The fine is usually 1,600 baht per case, notes Thaivisa). 

 

Immigration in the southern Thai province reminded property owners of the Article 38 law and Article 37 that relates to foreigners themselves reporting every 90 days.

 

Meanwhile in Petchabun there were four cases of property owners failing to report within 24 hours. 

 

These occurred in Wichianburi, Sri Thep and Muang district of the north eastern Thai province. Pictures of three females were on the Naew Na site but no names were given.

Technically if you go to visit your in-laws or girlfriends home country, you need to do a TM30, when you visit and when you return.

If you visit your in-laws, the house master of the house there has to report you, you can't report yourself.

They can do it by mail, then they don't have to visit the immigration office.

Correct. 

 

Note: Chon Buri Immigration only wants me to notify them if I’ve left the country. I tried to register again after a week in Issan and the IO refused to process it

It would be interesting to know how this TM30, BS, is affecting the Expat population at it relates to their personal travel within Thailand. Technically if you go to visit your in-laws or girlfriends home country, you need to do a TM30, when you visit and when you return.

 

I have lived in Thailand for almost 20 years on Work Permit and retirement visa's. Personally, this BS, now effects my decision to travel in Thailand. To report my presence at my mother in-laws house, which I built for a 3-7 day visit. It would require dragging my 86 year old mother-in-law on a 2-hour drive to the closest immigration office. Yes, we could have her place registered in the system, but again this is not so easy to do as internet is spotty at best upcountry. Not to mention, I then have to do upon my return. I could just ignore and no one would ever know, but as a honest person, I do not like ignoring even stupid laws.

 

I am not a cheap Charlie when I travel up there, so it means a loss of income for those places I would frequent. If a high percentage of Expat's reduced their internal travel due to TM 30 requirements, that could cause some local and national economic contractions.

 

This whole TM 30 crap is a infringement on our freedoms as legal guests in Thailand, to travel within the country we have adopted as our home. Officials say it is required so they can control criminals and terrorism, but I doubt any terrorist or criminal would bother with TM 30 reports. It is meant to control all falangs.

 

So who does this hurt?

 

Answer: You, me and the communities in Thailand that we may no longer visit! 

I think Ive traveled all over Thailand in the early days not no more Ive not been anywhere for over 4 years I used to like jumping on the plane to BKK for a couple of days, finished
