Nope, i dont even do one at all............unfortunately though my friend in BKk who works for PLAN International has to go in and out 3  times a  week, often Malaysia then Indonesia Vietnam etc EVERY WEEK.

So, if he goes out 3 times every week, stays overnight and has 24 hours to report upon his return..........I guess hes doesn't need to report every time. Not enough days in the week.

It's the landlord's responsibility to file the TM 30 unless he/she doesn't do it.  Then it becomes the tenant's responsibility to file it and apparently if it's not filed correctly, the tenant's extension of stay can be denied.  A hiatus of four days during which a foreigner did not report his stay in Bangkok before he returned to his permanent residence is said to have resulted in the denial of his extension of stay.  Exactly what threat to national security does this four-day omission pose?  I am baffled by what purpose knowing the location of every foreigner at all times serves.  Does anyone know?

Guy must be working 7 days a week if he travelling that much ,don’t sound like much of a life .......you get 48 hours to report 👍

 would imagine his passport would be full with stamps by the end off the month too🤣🤣🤣

Not really believable is it.

You think they'll flip for 10,000 signatures? 100,000 signatures?

Give us a number.

Hand the petition over to the US and UK embassies and see if they will forward it to whom it concerns?

 

(Though I have doubts that our embassies exist to help us)

They wouldn't flip for all the tea in China. imo I believe the Thais feel that upsetting a few thousand expats now and then to increase security is a trade off they can live with. Every time an foreign criminal is apprehended here it justifies their decision, and there has been a lot of losers snagged here -  and whether it was by the TM 30 net or not, it does not matter.  A countries internal security measures are like taxes, once applied they're usually not rescinded.

Have asked before on a different TM 30 post.. will ask again, how often must you do a TM 30 ? 

 

Had the house build in 2003/4 moved in over 15 years ago.... last time went out of Thailand was many years  [2009] ago, did a TM 28 + TM 30 -  found the bit of paper with the stamp and I.O's signature dated 2010..  

 

So need a 'new' TM 30 ? as still the same address, my next extension due in 3 months so want to be ready..

 

So what is the 90 day address reporting all about ? never missed or been late doing it in almost 16 years.
