These applications have been available for at least six weeks.

 

The eTM6 app is of questionable usefulness?  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.etm6

 

The TM30 app does require registration and approval, which can take up to six + weeks. It offers similar capapbilities as the online (hotel) system. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.section38

 

The TM47 app seems pretty solid, but has similar limitations (new passport, int'l re-rentry) to the long-available online system. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.immeService

 

 

The apps are OK, but still need a lot of work, IMO.

The TM47 app downloads fine but Google Play says the TM30 is incompatible with my devices.

I look forward to the Immigration Department taking steps to lower the value of the baht

maybe not but perhaps lowering the amount needed or an adjusted pre Baht surge dollar amount with an equivalent for each currency or Baht instead of just the Baht

It says tourists do not have to do the Notification of address. Lots of tourists have a tourist visa ,SETV. 60 days. This can be extended one month at your local immigration office. If you do not declare yourself at the Immigration for the Notification of Address, ( they staple a slip receipt in your passport) you will be refused the extension. So , yes, tourists wanting an extension do need to report themselves, even though their condo management has done their part online. I  have to do this at Jomtien .

Thanks to the OP for the effort. From my perspective, I am afraid with will be for nought. My issue isn't the legal requirements but a lack of consistency.

 

As a retired lawyer, I am used to dealing with paperwork, even totally useless paperwork. Give me a clear set of instructions on what to do and it will get done. What I find frustrating about the TM30 requirements - as well as many of the other IB requirements - is lack of consistency. In my home country, it doesn't matter which office of an agency I go to. The rules and regulations are generally enforced in a consistent manner. In Thailand that is not the case. Each IB office - and in most cases each Immigration officer - is allowed to make up interpretations on their own. The problem is not the rule but the lack of consistency.

 

Just my thoughts on it.

This stems from the fact that it is up to the discretion of each IO whether a visa or extension is given

maybe could pinch in about their request to have 800K blocked at the bank, many of us are property owners, why not use the property as the collateral and allow us to use the cash for daily living expenses,

If (from my knowledge) have formed a company AND pay for your lease with a company cheque, you then are allowed the value of the property instead of cash in the bank.
