Songkhla Immigration (Hat Yai) Moved

Recommended Posts

As I was up in Bangkok at the weekend, so wife made a TM30 report today. She asked whether she really needed to do this every time her husband went away for a couple of days, and the answer was yes. So seems Hat Yai immigration are sticking to the rules for now.

May I ask what kind of visa you are on? I'm married to a Thai but on a retirement visa. I've gone on frequent trips out of the province, stayed at hotels which submitted TM30s and Hat Yai immigration has never asked my wife to submit a TM30 upon my return.  My understanding is that a TM 30 is only necessary when returning from abroad.

Non-O marriage (multi-entry). Wife specifically asked if this was necessary after every trip, even just up to Bangkok, and the officer she spoke to said it was. Wife's most recent visit last week after I returned from Indonesia, IO noted down an eight digit number and just told her to quote that next time, no need for the paperwork.

We just got back from Sri Lanka, the girl at Don Mueang asked if we were getting a flight the same day to HY, which we were, seemed a bit of a leading question, so the wife needed to submit a TM30 within 48 hours. 
 

I only really do them when I leave the country.

 

The young guy at the HY front desk wrote a number on the paper and asked wife to take a photo and quote it next time, has anyone else had this, an ID number? 
 

I’m not too sure how it can help, do we still have to have copy of ID card, passport pages, lease and 2 pages from the house book?

Exactly what happened with us. But no, you don't need to furnish any documents, only when you get a new landing card, otherwise just show the ID number.

I was wondering if 90 day reporting in Songkhla (Hat Yai Immigration) was still required in person rather than online. Considering life under a state of emergency--and the need for "social distance"--one would think that Songkhla Immigration would begin to encourage online 90 day reporting. (Or is online 90-day reporting already available for Songkhla expats? For many years it seemed it was not.) Thanks in advance for replies.

I spent 4 unpleasant hours there on 17th (10 days ago) to do my yearly extension, it was full of Burmese workers, I presume for reentry permits. 

Unsurprisingly Zero Fs were given by HY immigration, staff all had masks and gloves, yet no sanitizer was available to customers. There was no effort made to separate or move people quickly.
 

Maybe things have changed in the interim. 

 

I need to do a 90 day in the next couple of weeks, i was thinking about doing the postal option, there is a drive through kiosk by the train stays ion. It crossed my mind to give it a miss, the fine is 2000THB? Is that for a year of non- reporting?
