I'm DONE with these VISA policies!!! CEBU here I come!!

Recommended Posts

The TM30 was never "a thing" years ago and the IMM laws have never been altered, just the enforcement.

Im sure some officers use it as a bit of a  "A-hole tax" for big mouth foriegners.

they are very easy to pick.

Ive known plenty that have never done it, never been fined and never even been asked about it.

 

I suspect this OP has only just read about it and is doing some trolling.

 

Try getting into places like Australia, then you will really understand the meaning of getting "dicked around"!!

 

Anyway, Good luck in the Phils O.P

 

 I think they will eat you alive the same as Thailand

and in 6 months time you will be looking for PhillVisa site to troll on.

all of them. it's alright bro, keep jumpin through those hoops,, they need someone to laugh at 😄 

 

 

No hoops too high. It's only a problem if you don't meet the requirements. Only took 4 days to get my O-A visa in my home country: over 50 yo, bank statement, health certificate, police report, done, good for two years. 90 day reporting at immigration took 15 minutes, very polite officer, no laughing. I think people just get butthurt when they can't reach the grapes, so they must be sour.

shes younger and hotter than my ex wife. makes my ex look like a sack o spuds!

Unless you're a very hunsum young man it sounds like she's just in for the money.

 

PS. just noticed that you are not so young anymore (retirement visa), so money seems to be the magnet.

But it is, all this reporting and TM30 stuff is a total waste of time, plus I doubt the paperwork involved is used for anything but storage...

For heaven's sake, do you think I don't know this after 30 years? I don't like the hoop jumping, and I feel for those who aren't as mobile as I am, and as my posting record shows I'm as critical as anyone on here of the red tape. But in the final analysis, I'm not going to let the barstardds get me down.

TM30... SAY NO MORE!!!

You confused.

Foreigner do not do the TM30.

The hotel or owner, boss where you stay must do it. Not your problem. 

At the hotel I work before we do it for the guest.

Don’t even tell the guest, we do it all for them. Just take passport copy.

 

Good luck in Cebu.

I seem to remember the OP stating how wonderful Nana was on returning from abroad, and something about Phuket's bar scene being fabulous.

But the paperwork has become too difficult to keep this lifestyle up.

Mind the door don't hit your arse on the way out.

Not quite true. Most of the people complaining on here do not stay in hotels (I have my own house, for example) and therefore have to submit their own TM30.

Good luck sir

Although my visa renewal this year took about 10 mins well as long as it took my agent to take my photo sign a bank withdrawal slip and pay me money

Didnt even have to go to immigration and no silly requirements to keep your gold bars locked up in the bank etc

having to report your presence to immigration everytime you return home from an overnight trip to another town is beyond ludicrous. enjoy it though yeah.

Never met anyone who did yet report staying overnight away from their town

Isn't it a violent, crime-ridden hell-hole with shit food?

NO I have been to Philippines 37 times and own a condo there (but agree the food is not great). Personally I don't like Cebu much as it's quite boring but it has one of the best shopping malls in Asia.

Gotta say I,ve only been once years ago and was shit scared the whole time!

Oh you were in that LB bar in Angeles?  I wandered in there once and I was scared too! 

apart from that 'once years ago' you should try again. I've never had issues in Philippines, they are warm and friendly (much more than Thais) but the infrastructure is very poor.

There is an app you can put on your phone to file your TM30. 

Unless you own a condo, you are not the one who files the TM30, AFAIK

BTW, in PI the age of consent is 12.  PI is one of 2 countries in the world where divorce is illegal. 

Be careful over there  

That is total BS!

 

Hundreds of foreigners renting have been fined for not filing a TM30 because the house master/owner did not file. And you should know it from all the posts on this website.

 

Immigration chooses to take foreigner's money because it is easy money and immigration refuses to enforce the letter of the law and they courage foreigners to leave Thailand or jump through hoops like the OP stated.
