Immigration chief: TM 30 law is outdated and needs to change

Let's be honest here, if only the Thais would ask for help, or advice, many 'issues' could be solved quite easily.  I have noticed this over the years, especially of people in 'positions of importance'...even if it is only them who think they are important.

Why can't the naysayers and the cynics wait just one day to see what ACTUALLY happens from Friday's TM30 Summit? 

Because we're all still waiting for the "definitely promised, gonna happen don't you worry about that" announcement about mandatory health insurance from two or three weeks ago

and i'm still smarting from the BIG announcement of a new multiple entry tourist visa to replace the outdated double entry..

 

2 weeks later we found out we'd need 5K in the bank for 6 months and letters from our employers. gee, thanks.

 

or the non-ox 10 year visa.. followed by 3M, mandatory health, etc, etc

 

or the digital nomad savior - the 'smart' visa ie 200K month min earnings

 

all touted big, all total <deleted>shows

 

so excuse me if i'll wait for the 'details' this time

TM30's are outdated, 90 day reports are outdated, photo copies of everything for immigration is outdated. If you meet the requirements for a Retirement or Marriage Visa you should be free to live in Thailand for at least a year. My wife has Australian Permanent Residence she does not have to report to anyone and after 4 years can apply for citizenship. Just my opinion.

Clearly you don't understand that Thailand is the centre of all that is perfect and good and true, so regulations have to exist to keep the riff-raff out by limiting the time anyone who isn't Thai can spend here

I am perhaps being too cynical here, but I cannot see such a big cash cow being dumped. Maybe this head of Immigration will have a desk next to big joke..............fingers crossed I am wrong and that there will be good news soon.

Be careful what you wish for. We’re not dealing with problem solvers and scholars here. They might think they are solving a problem while making things much, much, worse. 😁

 

That said, I’ll wait to see if there’s any action at all. Lip service is a profession here, in more ways than one.

"The immigration chief added that since August 31st developments have been put in place to "relieve the problems being experienced by foreigners residing in the country. He was tight lipped about exactly what these would entail saying there were many things to consider such as the economy, tourism and national security. "

 

I see, and now by some accounts Jomtien Immigration has just started fining people with retirement extensions for not having done a TM30, something they never did previously. I think we can see why '...He was tight lipped about exactly what these would entail...'

Sorry people, this is western thinking and im pretty sure if this stupidity was rectified something else will cost more, or more stupid rules will be introduced. Farang cant complain!

Im making a complaint now anyway though just to throw this one out there... "corruption"...can we start a petition?
