Jomtien immigration fining for no TM30 ?

Whilst doing my one year marriage extension yesterday, after the paper-shuffling at counter 6 I was sent to counter 10 to do a TM30 and get a slip to take back to counter 6. It was my first marriage extension, but in my previous 12 retirement extensions, I never had to do this. Never been mentioned in any of my 90 day reports either.

I also needed a TM30 for my first marriage extension, but didnt need one for the next, so maybe something they ask for first time.

The rules I can usually cope with, its the inconsistencies that are usually a problem.

You obviously didn't read or comprehend what I said in my OP, the guy IS on a retirement ext, and works offshore, he bought the house & it is in his wife's name - he went for a new multi re entry permit for his next spell offshore and they fined him, understand now ??

All the offshore workers I know are here on METVs.

 

You didn't state in your op that he was on a retirement extension or that he was an offshore worker.

 

Also, from your other post, it seems that you have never even met the guy, not certain what visa he has, you just heard it from the guy sat on the next barstool to you.

Sorry my bad, I didn't mention it until post 6, which just shows you couldn't be a****d too read to far down the thread to start with. Many apologies (sarcasm mode off) 😎

 

From what I understand: The guy is on a retirement extension & works out of the country, when he came back in he did his TM6 along with entry stamp at swampy so showed what date he came back in to Thailand, went to Immigration for new multi re entry permit and was picked up then, house is in wife's name and she never told immigration.

Is there perhaps some other factor like a change of address?

Jomtien is getting stricter The having the 800k 2 months before Retirement visa now strictly enforced even if you have 800,000 for 11 months of year I was short by 3 weeks and visa renewal refused and I have been here over 20 years - not interested in Pound falling like a stone Just want foreign exchange in THai bank

The requirement is 2 months prior to application. Are you saying you kept the money there for 11 months , but not within the 2 months prior? The only way the falling £ would catch you out is if it was in a Thai FCD account. 

You can hardly blame them for your failing!

Get an agent, spend the money maybe!

It has been also my experience at Jomtiem immigration.

i am on 1 year extension of stay based on retirement and i have had to do

2 trips in europe, one in may and when i return immigration desk for asking about the process they say if you do not change your usual adress no need to do anything, but the last trip was in august and when i return to immigration office 2 days after my return they say to me you need to fill a TM30. I did it then i ask to the Immigration officer if i have to do it when i return from a trip in thailand (I was traveling in Phuket for some days) and she clearly says to me i need to do a TM30 only if i go out of Thailand and return, no need if i stay inside Thailand (Of course as long as i do not change my usual adress in Pattaya)

"I heard, I think, maybe, could be, should be, perhaps, I wish", etc. Whatever happens, I will comply or move on if it is too unbearable.

Based on past experience you will be invited to the second floor if you are to be fined.  In my case the owner never filed and as such it was my fault and I was fined.  Thai logic amuses me except when they invade my wallet.  There was no receipt.

Recent rumours around that Jomtien may well be implementing stricter CW style approach to TM30.  Personally, if it costs me 800 baht after 15 years, I could live with it.

Jomtien Immigration wants the TM30 to be submitted after entering the country,even when staying at the same address. But when coming back from another province,you don't have to do it if you are still staying at the latest reported address. I know many being fined 1600 baht at Jomtien Immigration.

You will get fined at desk 10 at Jomtien Immigration,and they do give you a receipt for the fine. I got fined years ago, and got a proper receipt. I have seen others being fined recently, and they also got receipts.

That's correct. They started to enforce the TM30 report when entering Thailand because of orders from Department of Immigration in BKK.
