So why don’t they reveal the statistics for foreigners caught up in National Security issues.

When is the last time a foreigner was caught letting off a bomb in Bangkok ?  when is the last time a foreigner went crazy with a machine gun and tried to shoot the PM ?

when is the last time a group of foreigners tried to overthrow the government ?

National security threat......what National Security threat ?

This seems to be their main excuse, but doesn't make any sense.

 

If an indian marries and he gets a marriage visa, why would he go hiding???

If he doesn't have a legit visa he will go hiding anyway and tm30 won't help them find him ever.

 

Well, i am waiting since nearly 2 months now for online credentials from CW, so there's that...their stuff just doesn't work and is extremely inefficient, i can just report bogus stuff if i want, self reporting makes absolutely no sense...

I agree with you 100%, i.e. most stuff here in Thailand doesn't make sense or work, but we all know who is at the top, and those below don't question or challenge and just keep shovelling away, I call it the cow/grass syndrome, my Thai wife used to have it, but until she lived overseas with me for 9 years, she changed her diet 🙂

 

It is what it is and my wife says, darling, cannot change, Thailand is like this for many years, you complain, someone read your letter, rip it up and in the bin, just take care, not get upset, lets go boom boom 🙂

'National Security' simply means the military wants more submarines.  The Navy Admiral tells the police chief of his needs and asks 'where can we get more cash'? The police chief looks around and sees numerous farang enjoying life in T'land and hits upon TM30.

Case closed; until the military needs more jet fighter airplanes.

I am sure that you live close to an immigration office or police station.  Many expats live in rural area 50 kilometers or more from the nearest immigration office.  Some expats are disabled or have medical conditions.  It is a huge pain to have to go to the immigration office every week to report when you have to go to Bangkok for medical services.  For those with work permits who travel, it is equally difficult.

Eight minutes. Quick. But how about the whole story, about how long you had to spend travelling to and from immigration to do it?

Thats because you probably don’t live in Bkk. That’s a real pain to go from my house in sukhumvit 101 to changwattana everytime i am leaving bkk for a weekend. I am working mon-fri and i dont have 4h to go to immigration every monday, + it cost me about 400b to go there. If you leave in the province then i understand you are fed up but many expats lives in bkk and thats not as convenient as taking just 8 mins, it takes me 4h... Until there will be a working online registration i wont stop hoping this tm 30 thing stops. The point being a criminal he won’t  comply to this registration obviously so it does not change anything for bad guys but make the life of the good ones more  difficult.

This is why I don’t like to read and comment on such issues as the TM30. There are those who complain and bring more problems to others and make life more difficult for others in Thailand even when not breaking the law. This is not our country and we have to follow the laws. Either the old or new laws they are to be respected. I got nothing to hide and I don’t make a deal about it. Those wanting to change how things are done in Thailand especially when they are either permitted and permanent residents to the short term holiday visits have no real power. When you try to push for change or argue that Thais are wrong and don’t know anything. This is a big mistake and it won’t work out in your favor in the end. It will only make things worse and life more difficult than before. Stop the silly nonsense and get back to focus on what matters.

So you must live next door to an immigration office if it took 8 minutes from your front door to report and get back to your place?

Why do you guys have to do this---- cant you bloody read------ It took 8 mins inside the office of immigration----- he said nothing about leaving home or arriving back home.  Please learn to read properly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this down to many expats signing a petition sadly if you want to live and make your home in Thailand you have to keep a very low profile , complaining goes in one ear and out the other and can end up with your next visa application being rejected we have to remember we guests .
