Ah, TM30 the Movie. I'll just pop the popcorn first.

Dumb and Dumberer with a Vengeance.

I notice the TM 30 is required for a stay of more than 24 hours in another Provence? My wife and I have a residence in one part of the Provence and another residence on the far side of same Provence. Distance apart is 76Km. We spend time at both and on many occasions, more than 24 hours. Am I breaking the law by not submitting a TM 30? Just a thought.

I guess the current "tightening of the screws" is based on what is going on in China, same-same as it were.....

Quite logical, seeing the build up of the powers to be.

Maybe that is how they want to please the Chinese, when does the country invade.

Maybe for that reason they can also ask for advice in the Netherlands.

Some time ago they also wanted to check everything for the Germans.

blah blah blah bullshit... the fact is this is extortion, plain and simple... not well thought out and very poorly executed. Lame arse excuses for lame arse policies. The fact is they do NOT know what they are doing... the GOBS of paperwork are evident of that.

 

What pisses me off is I have been here going on 5 years, have a record of consistent income, yet my moving to a marriage visa requires 400K deposit, even though my records show more than 100K transfer per month like clockwork. I now have to leave the country and move/sell my crap because of this insane policy. My Thai wife cannot believe the stupidity going on.

 

You, sirs, are alienating good expats and it WILL have an impact on your economy.

TM30.....the ultra marathon or is it the never ending story? :sleep:

Gonna be up there with Brexit.

 

Won't go away now. Too many people poking a stick at it has kept it awake.

 

If the whole thing had been met with a wall of silence from the expat community it would have been enforced enthusiastically in tourist areas for a few months then slowly but inexorably been ignored and forgotten by the Thais who's duty it is to enforce as it was after it was originally introduced years ago.

 

The squeaky wheel gets the attention.

Expats are saying "Leave us alone".  Immigration is not listening. Bring on the Chinese tourists.

Closing statement by the Major General: It is not easy to change the law.

 

Could have fooled me. Don't they do it all of the time?

 

After viewing this meeting it leaves me a bit hot under the collar at the Immigration replies. We can just hope that all of this does not fall on Thai bureaucratic deaf ears, and if it does, they only have themselves to point the finger back at themselves.

A good recession and vanishing tourists and a decent drought will make for an interesting time for this Thai government. All the ordinary Thai I know are in financial strife. Thankfully I rejected the idea of ever staying in Thailand long term, just sad that I have made a lot of friends in Thailand.....

Got to give credit to the French Canadian lawyer. @1.26:30 he calls out the general and his subordinates who have basically been refusing to answer the questions and just saying "the law is the law and must be complied with."  He asks why wasn't it the case for 40 years and brings up other instances of non-enforced laws. And reply? None. Passed things off to a comment from the Australian Chamber of Commerce who quickly moved to praise immigration for making things "so much easier." BTW, why no American representative at this forum?  UK, Canada, Australia. No Americans.

They are busy in election campaign daily flow chart of which side they should start making loyality as insurance policy🤔

Sorry just a joke

Pretty much just here to see the ranting of angry expats. My TM30 reporting takes up a few hours each year. It's not ideal, but it is what it is. 

right, and if you are a tourist for a few months, on a motorcycle, traveling every day or every other day, am I or my Thai friend supposed to reserve the next day for filling in the TM30 relating to the private residence I have just stayed at ???...
