Right on time: Phuket Immigration explain TM30 and TM28 requirements for reporting foreigners

Recommended Posts

How do you file a TM 28 if the landlord wont file a TM 30 and you have never been given the documentation to file?  Who is responsible for that than??

In local Imm Office yesterday...wife asked about this issue....IO simply said Mai Pen Rai....so now we won't bother..not that we ever have.

 

Same for me. They did not want me to file a tm28. I guess until they need the fine! 

"Mai Pen Rai". Three words you will NEVER EVER hear in Phuket Immigration.

No need the hotel inform them you stayed 'X' number of nights, so, unless the computer flags another holel afterwards they should assume you have returned home. but, running down and telling them you are home, makes their job easier. If they wanna see ya, they can phone or visit. But, you do it for them.

Wrong. When a TM30 is filed by the hotel, it is the last TM30 on file.  They go by that and not the 24 hours  They make assumptions but not that you returned home.

And remember this is all for Phuket many other IOs do it differently.

If you stay at a hotel and they copy your passport then they will probably do the TM30 as required. By law your landlord needs to do another one when you return home. But if you go and stay at a friends or family private place and nobody does a TM30 then how the hell will immigration know?

In Chiang mai they didn't want it and had a sign up to that effect when I went there last month. I also heard the two IO on the desk separately tell two other people the same thing.

 

Some of you guys could settle down a little. Relax and enjoy the place. You'll live longer.

I have a question. filed a TM 30 with Kamphaeng Phet immigration back around the first of July when I arrived with a new OA for retirement so I now stay here full time, retired. Haven’t traveled. Does a TM28 come into play as a new retiree?

exactly - they don't 

 

you will have to tell them and if they are unavailable you and/or your landlord will get hit with a big fine (depending of course on what office you use)

The landlord can assign an agent to act on his behalf. The Thai immigration said it's not that important who fills out the form as long as it is lodged with them

You need to limit your friends to those who live within your own province... 😉

No thanks! Much better would be scrapping the whole TM 28/30 fiasco, or failing this a system that's easy to follow and in line with 21st century technology and thinking.

What are the chances of both of them living in the same province?

next you'll need a (deleted)ing work permit for the time you spent completing all of this

Not as silly as it sounds.

I recall reading recently the definition of "work" being any activity involving the input of time and effort whether for reward or not (or words to that effect ) and requires a work permit !

I just don't bother with any of them by making sure I never stay longer than 90 days... Never need to go to my local Imm office, so no issue 🤔

 

In the first place your landlord must register you. If landlord does nt then you are illegally in Thailand.

 

In the second place how do you manage 90 days. Tourist visa for 60 day then you need go immigration for 30 day extension.

 

Longer extensions need Immigration approval.
