Immigration fine house owner in Chiang Mai for not reporting visiting Canadian

Recommended Posts

To be fair, while I agree it's idiotic, it's not like that Thai Immigration haven't widely publicised this (stupid) rule is going to be enforced. Landlords who are renting to farang should know these rules. I've had no issues with my landlords doing it to-date. It sounds like it's the ones who don't want to pay tax who don't do it. 

 

Also, the 24 hour thing seems very subjective and dependant on which officer you get. Recently came back into the country but didn't get in to immigration for a few days and there was no issue at all. In and out in five minutes.

So how does this 24hr work if you go stay somewhere late Friday with imm closed over the weekend and you leave early Monday morning does that mean no report needs to be done ? 

Chiang Mai immigration is open over the weekend to do these sorts of things now. However, I've done it a week or so late without any hassles.

Sounds like a rental property. How did the immigration know? Did they follow the person back to where he/she lived?

TM30s are tied to your TM6 and 90 day reporting, both of which necessitate providing an address. There is not enough info in the OP for this case, but if either the TM6 given on entry or the 90 reporting (if done) had no associated TM30 entry in the DB then Immigration already have the address from TM6/TM47 to start looking.

Assuming this person did a 90 day report and not 90 day border run.

If a friend visit me as a tourist for 2 days , do I have to report my friend who is only here for 2 days before heading to the next Asian country . I own my own condo and I usually report myself but I am not sure of my tourist friend , thanks for your replies

In theory, yes.
