Well thank you, my only concern with this is that I go lot's of times to another city and stay sometimes 48 hours sometimes a bit more on a family house, it is annoying as I live far from any Immigration office, since my case is not enforced I'm happy, still I will go now sign that document. 

Cheers

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.

can you provide supporting (data) evidence, because saying something for the fact of saying something or anything it doesn't proof anything and we have been down that road already

Foreigners have to register TM30 only ONCE (and not tourists) and after, it is the duty of the Thai landlord. If you leave in Thailand for a while and never registered TM30, you will be fine as a foreigner. I believe it is between 800 to 2,000 baht.

Please explain when and where have foreigners to register using form tm30.

 

Please explain why a foreigner once registered by using form tm30 this duty is transferred over to the landlord.

 

Please explain why the tourists are exempted to register by using tm30.

Appreciate all your efforts and time spent working on this issue.

 

My question is for a bonafide foreign tourist coming to Thailand for only 2 weeks, do they have to do the TM-30 if they perhaps stay with a relative for 1 or 2 days and they move on?

According to the law yes it is required. But you will not be asked to prove one was done unless you need to do something at a immigration office.

The landlord / owner / possessor of the place where the foreign tourist is staying has to report the foreigner, the foreign tourist himself doesn't have to do it.

Merci beacoup for getting something done. You seem to have a good understanding of the Thai mind and bureaucracy, and the patience involved with trying to get change etc. Thank you again.

Your efforts are appreciated. I hope Immigration listens and responds in a positive way. Past experiences do not give me much hope, but there's always the possibility that they will see how pointless these regulations are.

They might be overly complicated, but not pointless. Thailand wants to know where foreigners are staying at all times, and don't want to rely on reports from the foreigner himself. (In cases where the foreigner is the landlord this might overlap, but this is a small percentile of all foreigners in Thailand)

So either the landlord has to report the foreigner, or the foreigner has to get an ankle bracelet. Which way do you prefer?

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

You are either:

  1. being geoblocked as in your not in Thailand (in which case try using a Thai based VPN or an app to make the system think you're in Thailand), or
  2. are trying to download with a Google account that was set up outside Thailand (set up a new Google account from within Thailand), or
  3. you are running an old version of Android (less than 6) ... get a new phone 😎

Korat immigration is a sleepy outpost really that doesn't want the hassle or limelight, maybe you should have gone to do this at like CW OP. Might have got a more terse response but it would travel further.

All very well having the forms online, as long as the system works. I got a new passport and am now unable to do my TM.47 online. Basically the system is broken, and to get back into the online reporting I would have to leave the country and re-enter. Before anyone comments that it is not necessary, I have had this discussion several times with Immigration and they initially claimed that I could easily continue to do online TM.47, however, they now admit that I probably need to leave and come back to 'reset' the new passport number.
