I was at Pathumthani immigration 2 weeks ago an di had to do one.  Lets hope that I/we don't have to fill anymore.  That day I waited a long time most of the staff were not there, and the ones that were there talked to the people for a long time about nothing.  When it first opened it was very quick, and less staff.  Now a lot of staff and very slow cant win for loosing

If you do not report to CM Immigration within 24 hours to submit a TM30 when returning, you will face a hefty fine.  Thanks CM Immigration.

What is the hefty fine? 2K BHT of $75USD? Or $6/USD or 20 cents/day.

So if you leave Pathum Thani and go to report in another province that still requires it the first thing they will want to see is the previous report.  Then what?

How can they refuse a TM28 and/or a TM30 report?

If a person on for example retirement visa moves to that province, he must submit the TM28 and the TM30, otherwise he can't do the 90 days reports and extensions.

At 90 day reports they don’t check TM 30’s. I agree for extensions you need one.

There is no such official requirement, this is just something some immigration offices made up.

I do my TM30 at the condo desk. A day later, I get my Receipt of Notification.

The tenor of your post implies you have to report to CM Immigration in person. In my case, that is incorrect.

A fine of 1900 baht is hefty? I pay more than that for a round of golf sometimes.

800,1600 or maybe even 2000 baht on a bad day, but not 1900.

Sounds like it's a matter of pick a number, depending on which IO one goes to. Or sees.

In protest, several friends and I myself have decided to refuse to do the TM30 at all and just pay the fine.

The whole thing is ridiculous and an insult to foreigners. Immigration officers don't want it either as it just creates more work.

Don't stop there. All of you should lie down at the entrance of your IO.

OP, what Visa is your friend in Thailand on?

 

Only reason I ask is there was a news article on here the other day where the Chief IO in Phuket said the TM30 wasn't required for people on Visa Exempt, Tourist Visa, Investment Visa or Work Visa - In other words only required if you're on a Non-O for Marriage or > 50

It sounds like a committee chose the amount.
