So i've just read bangkokpost about cumbersome TM30 where all landlords MUST report/queue on local immigration office whenever expat/tenant is leaving the rented place for over 24 hours. (This is just nuts!)

The TM30 is required when arriving, not leaving.

So if i were to live at hospital' guesthouse due to family member is admitted for complicated disease, say 40-70 days i must accompany with this sick family member, am i required to have TM30 or ask hospital's director to queue in ChaengWattana on my behalf? What if i were to stay overnight at friend' house within 4km from the hospital's guesthouse? 

Is the hospital in another Province?

And must i have TM30 when i am about to extend my non-imm O visa for another 30 days? At most the hospital will issue me the letter states where and how long i've been living at the guesthouse, purpose of staying, and rent fee. I am pessimistic if hospital will spare an employee to visit ChaengWattana on my behalf everytime i am leaving the premise.

You can't extend a Non O for 30 days.

You could ask the hospital if, like hotels, they file a TM30 for their guesthouse guests. If they do file a TM30 then you should file a TM30 yourself when you return home. If the hospital does not file a TM30 then Immigration is not going to know you stayed there. Similarly if you stayed at a friend’s house. You are technically supposed to file a TM30 in these situations but unless you plan to have contact with Immigration or the police during your stay, you can probably get away without filing.

 

 If you go to Immigration to extend your stay, such as a 1 year extension, then you will need to have a TM30 receipt. They won’t allow you to get a 1 year extension without it. So it is important. If you have never filed before then you need to contact your landlord about this. There will likely be a least an 800 baht fine because you will be filing late.

 

If you are trying to get an extension while you are in the hospital guesthouse then bring whatever documents you have allowing you to stay in the guesthouse. Ask the hospital to write a letter to that effect. Go to Immigration with your passport and a TM30 form (can be download from the internet). Tell them your situation. You will probably be able to self file. Bangkok CW allows people to self file. Get to CW early. Expect to be there a long time.

Anyone can hand in the form on behalf of the person completing it — if it’s required by the local immigration office.

 

If you stay in a hotel/guesthouse or hospital accommodation it is up to them to submit a report. When you return ‘home’ it’s up to someone (maybe you) at your address to submit a new TM.30 — if it’s required by the local immigration office.

 

If you stay with a friend for a few days there is no need for anyone to complete a TM.30 unless they/you want to cause yourselves unnecessary paperwork.

Visited Chiangmai Immigration today to ask them to help get my Thai wife (& house owner) registered on the TM30 App/Website … (which is actually called the 'Section 38' App).

All done in 30 min .… one of the young immigration girls even did all the typing.

Docs needed … Wife ID Card, House Tambion Bond .… and surprisingly .… my own passport … wife also needs email address.

Form successfully submitted .… now just have to wait for approval from Thai Imm. in BKK .… who will send username/password to my wife’s email address.

A few screen shots below ....

Today at Chiangmai Immigration … on the 3rd Floor where TM30 are done … I saw the following notice … which seems to indicate you can get TM30 done at weekends and holidays … at least in CM

We did this at our immigration office last Monday, although my wife told then that she had already applied for the password, he said they do it in house, not Bangkok, as Bangkok forwards the details to them, only saying what he told us, wife opened her email today when I asked her, and there it was, we are in, so now it's TM30's online.

We too have received an ID and password and have entered my details on the site but are unable to save. Can anyone help us save and receive an acknowledgment?

What is the latest on 90 Day reporting and TM30 requirements? This is for Chaeng Wattana specifically.

Can you do the 90 day by post if you still haven't received a TM30 receipt? 

Can you do the 90 day report via an in-person representative without a TM30 receipt?

Thanks.
