So why are you complaining? 

Yeah, right! You got me there. Guess I am just so tired to hear and read about all people coming to Thailand and just have a negative attitude to everything. More surprising, later they pose a question about how they should be able to come back to Thailand without denied entry after 3 tourist visas and 2 exempt entry and extension on that. 

It´s really baffling that all those people love Thailand so much and still want to come. They doing all they can to be able to stay by any means possible, so they can collect another bunch of complaints before next question about another exempt entry comes up in the forum.

After that you have people stating that they are staying in Thailand and don´t give a thought to filing TM30. After that they ingage in a discussion why they fine everybody in CW Immigration before they can apply for an extension.

Yeah, I could og on forever,but I do belive you got my drift. However, that would also be even more complaining from my side. :cheesy: As I said you´re right. You got me, and also mede me understand why all others complain too. I guess we have to agree to continue complain together.

So, the actual problem isn't the TM30 per se, but, the inefficiencies of your local immigration office.

The two aren't mutually exclusive. Doesn't matter how inefficient my immigration is. The TM30 is still a dumb and regressive idea and process.

 

We don't all live in the same place. Most of us actually live in Bangkok. Try broadening your mind and understanding that.

That's right. Plus a relatively efficient local immigration office. That's why I don't have a problem. Try broadening your mind and understand that.

Then go and criticize users on a thread called 'Let's have negative attitudes towards everything in Thailand'. Then you'd have a point.

 

This thread is specifically about the TM30.

It's all "positive" man, this TM30. We're just being negative, you see.

 

People have been waiting for this since 1979.

 

They say it's for our own security and the security of our residence. We have to believe that.

 

Anyway, it's so easy to report. One two three. 😂

 

This sort of thing does not deserve anything less but mocking.

Well done for not having a problem. But we are not all the same as you. We don't need to hear again and again how it's not a problem for you. You're not helping or adding anything for anyone who is having problems. Just exacerbating the situation for others. 

 

If you're still that way inclined, go outside and tell some homeless people that you have a roof over your head. Tell them not to worry.

Ok, back to topic. What I did was answer a question from another poster. I guess that´s allowed. Maybe I should ask if it´s also allowed by your standards.

However. Like I said. Stop complaining about how hard everything is with TM30. You just have to do what they ask for if you want to continue to stay without any problems. Enough many epople protesting or do not comply with the rules for TM30, they are probably going to make a more harsh punishment. It´s that what you want to achieve?

Everybody that wants to stay in Thailand has to follow the rules and do the TM30. If different offices have different opinions and procedures for how it need to be done and when, so what? Ask how they want it done at the local immigration office them. No problem.

Right, me telling others who are having problems that I have the same problems too is exacerbating things. People with problems always wanna hear from people with no problems, right? 

 

Go and start your own thread for people who aren't having problems. For the rest of us who are, this thread is about the problems the TM30 is causing.

It's kind of hard to follow the rules when they keep changing. Even harder to follow the rules when you have a full-time job, and the username and password they said they'd issue you with within 7 working days, still hasn't been issued over 3 weeks later. 

 

But thanks. I feel so much better knowing that someone else doesn't find it difficult to do. Now everything is magically okay for me.

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.

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

You're being ironic, right?

You clearly do. And I like posting too. Just don't get bent of shape when people call you out.

You like posting your positive stories but don't need/like to hear other people's negative stories.

 

That's not how a forum works, I'm afraid.

No, not at all. At this time of year, most often than not, there is no one waiting at the drive-thru. You just pull up, a window slides open and a hand comes out. You just say 90 day report, or, TM30 and hand over your passport. The window closes and three minutes later, the window opens and your passport is handed back.

Whoever thought of this idea was a genius.
