so you had to report in  London did you?

In London they don’t call it a TM30 , it’s a UB40 and you report every 2 Weeks or get a friend to do it for you , whilst you live the high life in Thailand....😂😂😂

Kind of "There's the door policy".
How to make life for expats in Thailand impossible and how do we get rid of all of these horrible "quality tourists"...IMG_1576.jpg.2330cdfb03af3138e4f2745b3f395940.jpg

I can understand you do enjoy visiting immigration but for me that's 1.5h drive. Not that it affect me since the online system works fine for me. However it doesn't seems so straight forward for everyone. 

IIRC you can turn the TM30 in at local police station, it's not limited to immigration offices only. has that changed?

 

I don't get why the landlords would shy off from renting to Falangs, they just need to do the form once, at the start of the rental. get some limited power of attorney forms for them to sign and you can turn the landlords papers in for them, they don't even have to go in.

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 .

Kissing the backside of a bully does not make it less likely that they will stop bullying you. On the contrary, it empowers them.

I know I was sent to get caned  for saying "Jesus Christ" in a music class as the teacher was very religious this was in a public schooling Australia.I was a child who was going to be beaten by an adult with a stick for saying something only they didn't hit me with the stick because they were put off doing so when I said "if you hit me we are going to court".

  Also indoctrination doesn't only include not discussing certain subject but only providing certain information and omitting certain info e.g. some people from the west don't think they have been brainwashed or indoctrinated.  

Sorry, but that is a very weak argument. Even if true, it is nowhere near to the extent of the indoctrination that goes on in Thai schools. No comparison whatsoever. Your exclamation could be construed as swearing. It is not a "subject". You cannot challenge a teacher here over whether the facts they are teaching are wrong. Whereas, in the West, the teacher would probably be grateful for being corrected. Questions here are discouraged. Teaching by rote is not teaching and exams are just a test of memory.

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. 

 

A very big contrast to Spain, where my English sister is allowed to vote in local elections as she lives there and the laws therefore affect her. In Thailand, it is 'it's our country and although you might support a family and bring money into the country, you have no rights at all'.

Happy you took only 8 minutes. Wife and I went to Chaeng Wattana on July 30th and it took the whole bloody Day. We had queue # 274... 

Decided we rather pay the B800 penalty once a year than doing this 20plus times a year whenever I come back into Thailand again. BTW the helpful officer confirmed to us that for Bangkok online does not work well....

Same here. I work Monday - Friday in Bangkok and I'm not going to be able to take Monday off to go to CW every time I want to go away for the weekend which is at least twice a month. If the online system is unreliable then you can try and comply with the rule and still get fined.

 

I have a feeling this will quietly go away once a new story appears. Thai people will never admit they are wrong, especially to a foreigner so I think this will be like the ban for riding in the back of pickup trucks, a hot topic for a week and then never enforced. I suspect they are looking for a ladder to climb down already. If I am wrong and they are silly enough to continue with this stupid rule, I'd rather pay the fine.

I can't understand why they are so paranoid about national security? What's the problem? What is the true purpose of the TM30?

 

None of us are interested in taking over the country. Someone should tell them we only came here for the pussy.

I was very tempted to tell them that,when pulled over in the car at a road check leaving my province,Q "what you do in thailand". A, "nothing" this question was repeated a few times and my answer remained the same,cop had no idea what nothing meant.I'm still laughing days later.
