Phuket Immigration clarifies TM28, 24-hour reporting ‘exceptions’

PHUKET: Phuket Immigration Chief Col Kathathorn Kumthieng clarified to The Phuket News today (Sept 16) a notice posted by the Immigration Bureau announcing that certain visitors to Thailand no longer need to report their change of address.

 

The notice, posted on Friday (Sept 13), read, “During the visit to Thailand, for purposes of tourism sports, business, investments, education, practicing of skilled craftsmen or specialists, aliens are not required to notify the competent official in case of moving their residence.”

 

Col Kathathorn this morning admitted that the announcement may be confusing.

So Expats are getting the shaft and still under suspicion of possibly being an "international terrorist" as previously stated concerning alien visitors? Well what a steaming load...

And those who visit with the intention to commit terrorist activity, crime, fraud, have skipped bail or any other illegal activity must still submit details of their where abouts.....as they of couse would.

So what if you have an extension of stay based on a non-immigrant B visa? I don't any more but I used to have one.

Well that makes less sense!🤯

 

So expats or those well off enough just live here indefinitely on multi visas are more likely to be terrorists? Well perhaps if they are treated like this i guess thats a possibility down the road.

 

Example: my neighbour called the police and said i hit him, which aint true at all.

I waited for the police to arrive and beat him and his dum friend. Felt good!!

Border runners are considered safe, but long termers with families, houses, etc. are a security risk!

That looks like they have tossed a bone to those working with WPs but retired expats are still in limbo, for now at least. Guess this deflects the ire of business which was obviously strong but they don't appear to want to fully 180 it for everyone just yet.

Been on multiple threads already but I'll just feed it here too: retirees and marriages were added after 1979 and nobody bothered to add them to the TM28 exemption list as per immigration act clause 37, that's why they are not on this poster. Which means, people here on non-imm O (O as in 'Other', the categories that were added after 1979, including marriage and retired) are supposed to go to BiB every time they travel to a province for over 24 hours or change residence to a new police precinct.

 

It's far more inane than the TM30 that's already utterly useless. Sections 37 (3) and (4) in the immigration act: http://library.siam-legal.com/thai-law/thai-immigration-act-temporary-stay-in-the-kingdom-sections-34-39/

 

Quote

(3) Shall notify the police official of the local police station where such alien resides, within twenty–four hours from the time of arrival. In the case of change in residence in which new residence is not located the same area with the former police stations, such alien must notify the police official of the police station for that area within twenty-four hours from the time of arrival.
(4) If the alien travels to any province and will stay there longer than twenty-four hours, such alien must notify the police official of the police station for that area within forty-eight hours from the time of arrival.

Good news, but I already had my local office confirm that on a business visa I don't have to report every time I travel between my home and office in Bangkok and my home in Phuket which I travel back to most weekends.
