For 2 years I have been going to immigration and waiting 3-5 hours to receive my 90 day extension.  I want to stop going to immigration and fill out the form on-line, however, i lost my card.  In order to fill out the form on-line, you MUST have the number on the departure card.  How do i receive a new card?

Suspect you would have to do what others that have not traveled in the last decade.  Exit and return to obtain a new entry/card.

All you need is the number that was on the card. Do you by any chance have a copy of it somewhere.

It might even be written near your  most recent entry stamp.

Ask immigration, they are sure to know as it is on your last 90 Day extension which will be meticulously filed somewhere?

I've had several Departure cards lost when sending my passport for Visas at various Embassies - even when it was stapled in.  I just got a new TM6 from the airport check in desk (booking agents also have them in their offices) and filled in the departure details when flying out, and the Immigration guy accepted it.

 

I think the details on the card are just the same stamp as in your passport?

Go to IMO and they will look up the number and write you a number on a new card you do the rest in CM anyway🤔

I am also likely to lose my TM6 when I arrive in a few weeks and check into a hotel in downtown Bangkok. I am eager to see how they will handle the TM30 reporting without my "lost" TM6. 🙂

 

I see no valid reason for them to refuse check in.

 

Any opinions?

When I do my annual extension, does Immigration need to see my physical TM6 departure card?  I made a photocopy of it, and I do know they want such a photocopy for renewal. But, are they looking a for a stapled TM6 to my passport as well? Thanx.

I am not sure if they even look at the one I have in my passport.

You do I think though need the original if they wanted to see it I would say.

The always working and recommended procedure is to report the card as lost at the next police station. With the report you proceed to the immigration, and they will issue a new one for you.

I had this problem once, ( lost departure card ). As i was staying in Buriram I went to the Buriram immigration office in the late afternoon, to ask what should i do.

The immigration officer was surprisingly help full, ( yes unusual ) he asked me for my passport, he put my passport number in the computer, checked the details of my passport and then gave me my number from the computer, he even wrote out the number on a slip of paper for me, he then asked me with a smile, yes with a smile to kindly look after the next one better, he then stood up bid me farewell, all done in approximately 15 minutes.

I thought you could just pick up a departure card at the airport before you fly out.

You can, but that doesn't help the OP's problem now.
