Yes! All we have to do is get a bar code tattooed on our necks. It will auto scan us as we move around the country.

Well, this report doesn't give you much confidence that anything will be improved if they are not able to admit that much of the  problem lies with their own inability/unwillingness to make a working system to uphold their own get tough laws and requirements. At least from what is reported and as translated, immigration seems to feel that the uproar  is something to do with problems with the reporting applications' ease of use when in fact, from reports on here, seems that the problem has more to do with the online reporting system not functioning properly period, it, in some cases, doesn't work or in some cases you can't even get a login. If they would address all of that, I would be more impressed, but they didn't they decided to not care about the actual problem and make other problems to solve that are more pleasant to consider. But, whatever it is, I am skeptical that anything good will come of this and that until I see something that suggests otherwise, the brokenness of it all will appear only as just a nice thing to have for them, another tool to create problems and confusion which create pre-texts to collect fines. I can't fathom there would be any motivation or will to actually improve things. Bad reports in the international media will soon fade away and the coast will be clear soon to carry on as they like without broken faces. I would also add there is little chance anyone is going to be happy, as the report suggests we will be, with any improvements that may be undertaken as a result of the upcoming meeting. I would agree with many who post on here that at the end of the day it is the idea of the whole thing, it doesn't matter if it has been made to work more smoothly it is still unnecessary and non-sensical to have report ones whereabouts all the time, it is intrusive and is just more data that potentially is open to  being used and abused, it makes everyone staying here that much more uncomfortable and I think Thailand will lose at the end of the day creating more retirees and foreign family and workers who will leave. That is a harm to Thailand not a boost to their security though I would think that is lost on immigration.

Oh no ! I have never filled one and would never, but they are going to change it ! So sad that I am not one of the very smart people who were worried about this BS form 🙂

i have not found the online application hard to use, it just never works i have applications pending in the system now for years as i do one every 90 days then end up going to the immigration office, which is over an hours drive, and do the application there it takes 5 minutes and drive over an hour home.

i ask every time what about online and every time they we do not do here in Mahasarakham, but i do it anyway next time hoping they might at least advance to the 1990s if not 2019.

They would be happy if they only have to report if they've changed their address. What's the point in reporting the same address year after year?

Exactly.   There should not be 90 day reporting at all.  No need to report 4 times per year you are staying at the same address.  Just have a requirement to have your permanent address on file and notify them when it changes.

I used it (not for the first time) a week ago and have received a successful approval a few days later, but no email confirmation, I had to keep checking progress until I saw an approval notification.

 

This was on the website, not mobile app.

SITE NOT WORKING NOW

I have lived at the same adress for more than 10 years, and find it hard to understand, why I have to go to immigration every 90 days, just to let them know, that I am still living here.  Why not only report, if there is any change of adress??

Once TM 30 goes over the cliff, this is the next one 90 day reporting, WHY?  If you have passed the test for a yearly extension, then so be it dont want to see them for another year.
