Thailand tightens the screws on TM30 reporting, petition ongoing

Another newbie who appears to be sponsored by immigration to sign up for the forum and tell everyone how easy it is. Even if what you write is in your case true, why doubt the experiences of others who've waited weeks or months for passwords? To draw a parallel, I personally am not too bothered about 90 day reports, as I can mail them to CW and it's always been relatively straightforward. But that doesn't make me come on here and lecture others, when they may live in provinces or have circumstances where the process is much more difficult. Same goes for @taninthai and his inane in and out in 8 minutes comment. 

Only three minutes at the drive-thru at Phuket immigration.

Not living in fear at all. In 30 years I have never had a single problem with Thai Immigration. Why, therefore, should I sign this pathetic petition ? It is a disaster which will make things more difficult for all of us. You really need to grow up and get out more before making such a childish comment.

 

Good Op Ed in the other newspaper, Google "TM30 a shot in the foot".  Sums it up quite nicely.

I must confess that I have not really been following this thread that closely for various reasons, not least because I live a mere 30 minutes drive from a very helpful immigration office. I know about the online reporting facility, I haven't signed up for it because I am told you need to use Internet Explorer and I couldn't be bothered to install it. I may sign up now. Does this picture mean, as it appears, that we can send in our TM30 by mail? If so, what is the fuss about?

"National Security"? 

 

1. Is there a central register of all TM 30 reports, that can be consulted at any time, to check whether Mr. Smith is still living where he say he does? (That would be about 35 million reports, at least, annually)

2. Do bad people register their movements across the country, and report on TM30?

3. Does the Thai government collect a sigificant amount of revenue/jobs from this protocol?

 

Does "National Security" mean that the Thai governement expects to have to expell all foreigners from the land, for some obscure political reason?

 

Remember: In 1933 up until 1945, the Nazis exterminated the Jews because they were a theat to "national security". Are Thais so fundamentally xenophobic that they're afraid of all that is non-Thai?

 

This TM30 crisis shames Thailand, its government, its peoples, its culture. It is a very dark spot on what used to be called The Land of Smiles. Now, it is the Land of Fear. 

This post should be printed out, distributed to English language classes to demonstrate what "hyperbole" means.....

Someone’s been watching too many YouTube videos.

 

For the users here who don’t like the TM30, but who also don’t want to be accused of being in an ‘echo chamber’, why don’t you explain why you’ve made so many posts about something you don’t mind doing? “Enlighten us”.

Oh, but, don't you know? We live in the "land of fear".

You answered your own question when you quoted me several pages back. Don't you remember?

Quote directly. That’s how it’s done. Otherwise no one will know what you’re talking about or who you’re talking to. Context, please.

 

I have no idea what this post means.

That's my take on it. Keeping aliens on back to back temp permits fits right into the picture. Milk 'em until they get dry or start to be trouble, then simply kick them out.

 

They are not stupid, that's a great deal if you can pull it off. Tottypower has been supplying Thailand fresh meat for the grinder for years, but now that that's fading, resident aliens are starting to see behind the scenes. And then the deal gets sour.

Just spent 4 hrous in cheanwattana today to extend a tourist visa 2+1  month.  Well my dear.. I was told sir you must do reporting.  They went to fined me 800 thb. Even though my own is my own home. So even you do a visa extension sona totalnof 90 days. They ask you to do 90 days reporting.... non sense.....theybgive you a piece of paper to keep in your passport.   I repeat  even tourist  visa... need to report....

I’m so fed up reading about tm30 on this forum ......I just did mine this morning in and out in 8 minuits ,immigration were happy,smiling,friendly and helpful seriously what is all the fuss about ....moaners will be moaners where ever they are in the world.

Take on your glasses, then you will see that some falang people have to travel up to 3 hours or more to the ImOf. Let them smile, but not because of TM 30.

The big and ugly joke, if you don't get the password for the App - some people have to wait 1, 2 or more months - YOU will get fined for delayed reporting, not the ImOf. for incompetence or what ever reason.

I checked into a hotel a few days back and tried to use my pink id. No go, had to give passport, which means my tm30 is now done by the hotel and my wife should report me again when we return home to where my yellow tabian baan is. As far as I'm concerned they can shove it, perhaps the only benefit of elite is I won't have to do extensions and right now won't stay more than 90d in Thailand anyway.

Yes, things must be changing, I have been to so many hotels here in Thailand, and the only one that has ever insisted on my passport is the Nana Hotel in Bangkok.

In fact, I am in a hotel in Bangkok right now, and I only needed to show my driving licence.

If you want to avoid bothering about any TM30's, just stay away from your local immigration office.

Their police station yes, the same one that refuses to follow the law and accept TM30 reports.

I suppose the Thai post office won’t accept any letters addressed to immigration too😂😂
