Thailand tightens the screws on TM30 reporting, petition ongoing

Great post.

 

As I have posted many times, that what starts out as a genuine but vague call to improve or reform something at the top, probably ministerial level, morphs into a revenue-raising exercise by the time it reaches the front line, the local offices who interface with the user. Oh, and the original purpose is completely forgotten about. The TM 30 fiasco is in no way "keeping tabs on the whereabouts of foreigners" or "preventing threats to national security". It sure is raising a lot in fines though.

Wife  is  dealing  with  this  crap  almost  daily  now,  yesterday 3  people in one  condo, 800  baht EACH or 1600  each  with  receipt,  Wife actually  spoke on  the  phone  to  the  officer at the  request of the tenant to try to educe it, nope 8 or  1600 u  choose. guess  reporting would meet the "it  never  happened" or at very best "rogue  officer" type  bs from  higher  up...guaranteed.

Im guessing  their next move  will be to increase the fine for this nationwide.

All part of the plan methinks... sowing the seeds of discontent among the expat populace. High baht, talk of insurance, enforcing 24-hour reporting. They'll have you phoning in when friends spend the night next... expect ankle bracelets about this time next year. 🙄

more  Thai  owners  now specifying  no  foreigners to  my  Wife, just to be clear she is a  real estate  agent in BKK.

I wouldn't want the hassle either.

Hassle? Much as I think TM30 and all other forms of reporting are a waste of time and could be made simple - to describe it as 'hassle' is stretching things. Have you registered for online reporting? Do you know how long it takes?

As a landlord of a foreign tenant, would you want the worry that your tenant might move around the country without telling you? After reading reports of Thai landlords being fined and paraded around the press by immigration, might you think it would just be easier to not rent to foreigners because it’s a hassle? 

 

I have registered online, yes. How long does it take? I have no idea. I’ve been waiting for over three weeks now. Please tell me how long this ‘hassle-free’ process will take? 4 weeks? 2 months? A year? Oh, so easy.

Many got out before the oppression started to accentuate. 🙂

Removed a post (and responses) that claimed others were paid to post. If you have any actual evidence please forward it to support. If it's just a lame debating tactic, further references like that may find you without posting rights.

Yes. It is really scary!  If I ever get to be dictator of someplace--unlikely as that might be--I will recruit all these guys and offer them charter memberships in my country.

Equally tragic is that back in the West they're struggling to recruit traffic wardens. Some people have really missed their vocation in life.

Yes, it's amazing how many posters on this thread that are moaning about the TM30 don't actually live in Thailand.........

I think you would find thats the case for lots of topics, the most vocal critics are posting from mums basement. It would be great to see IP addresses/country in profiles.

This was like I thought from start. No change. everybody still needs to do the TM30. The petition only made the authorities more irritated.

Good work. Now all supporters to this complaining petition feel happy with themselfs.

Think we will need another petition. Please create a law that says stop complain or be deported.

So why are you complaining?

How is the Nana Hotel? Can't imagine it has changed in 2 weeks!..I'll be back there Friday.

They've done a good job refurbishing the rooms but the new steel work outside looks pretty crappy

I'm sorry. I have not been there for a full year, it's the buffet breakfast that I like, so

I only drop in very occasionally.

Really? What percentage of posters on here moaning don’t even live here? 

 

I think it’s more amazing that posters who have no problem complying with this recently enforced law and don’t mind doing it, would keep making post after post condemning posters who think it’s stupid. That’s what’s truly amazing. 

Not many, but, at least two.

You're entitled to your amazement. Just as those who regard the TM30 as a small mole-hill (rather than a mountain) are entitled to post on this thread.

I'm very pleased to say, that I left in March this year, and I enjoy discussions about Immigration changes in Thailand, from outside of Thailand.

 

You've made it sound a bit like, we should not comment unless we are geographically located there, which I disagree with.

Right, but you said, and I quote, "it's amazing how many posters on this thread that are moaning about the TM30 don't actually live in Thailand" Not many, but at least two, isn't indicative of a great quantity to be amazed at. Quite the opposite, actually. 

 

You're entitled to any opinion you want. Might be an idea to explain as to how you've formed this opinion. After all, you said we shouldn't get stuck in an "echo chamber" Enlighten us.........please.
