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


Recommended Posts



Say, are you one of those guys who doesn't wai the Immigration officer? 

 

When I walked into the Lao Immigration office yesterday, all 3 officers waied me, (and I waied back of course). Then they all made jokes about me leaving Thailand to live in Laos because Lao girls are prettier, (which is probably true, judging from my previous experiences when I lived there).

 

Never had a Thai immigration officer wai me 🙂

 

I've made 3 overnight trips to/from Laos in as many weeks.  Have I reported to immigration each time to report my TM30 details?  Have I hassled my landlord to go and do the TM30 report each time? Not a chance!  They can fine me on my final trip out from Thailand - I'm not wasting my time reporting like a prisoner out on bail.

charming fella.

 

dont forget your TM30, wouldnt want you to get fined for being out of your house for the night!!!!!😂

I've lived in Thailand 20 years and never done a TM30.  I suspect most of the fellows on Thai Visa have not either.  But, if I had to do one I'd mail it in.

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.

That's ridiculous. Although it is house owner's responsibility according to law, Thai Immigration chooses to fine the renter/foreigner for no TM30. Thousands of foreigners who rent have paid the fine. Go read the posts on this website and get educated.

At hotels correct at rent houses maybe not.  A couple of Immigration offices want the person staying in the house to do them if the owner does not.

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.

Sunbeam, I am no way religious....🤣

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.

AFAIK the owner must file the first one, then the renter can update upon return from each trip Out Of Thailand.

TM30... SAY NO MORE!!!

But you only need a TM30 (although not  at Jomtien) only  when you leave the country? If you don't leave, you don't need one. How often did you leave LOS then that it upset you so much?

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.

you don't need to do that at Jomtien Immigration.

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.

Haha u too, no generally green I guess, but guns on hips of security in bars, folk living in horrible poverty, strong bar girl scene, flooded Manila all added up.Mind you I was 22 and solo.

long enough dude.

 

ive had many types of visa. up until may I was on a retirement visa, before that a marriage visa, before that a business visa and so on and so on.

 

Ive just had enough bro, it's getting silly now.

Visa rules haven't really changed that much, not substantively anyway.  Phils is not the paradise of nice immigration people that some seem to think. The President is a homicidal maniac who is licking up to China and pushing out the west, America specifically. It is no more stable than Thailand, less so by some measures. 

 

By the way, I would bet a lot that your girl is married (no divorce in Phils and they marry young there) and probably with at least one kid and a grabby family. Good luck
