I must admit I find it somewhat disheartening that so many foreigners seem keen to comply with the whole Tm 30 mess to the extent of volunteering the form when it is probably not necessary. I'm really not sure why so many want to conform with what appears to be a bit of nonsense that will blow over soon enough. It would blow over much quicker if people weren't overly pedantic about it.

All could help address the issue if the letters of protest were sent to every long stay foreigner's Embassy, I'm thinking.

 I will make sure my wife does the hotel registration so I don't have to worry about a report.”

 

That is what I always do, no headache, no questions. 

Even though I live in a hotel property and it is easy to report my return by their system, but I prefer not getting any room on my name and then no report needed on return.

I did my extension here in Ubon in August and i have never been asked for a TM30 form. Still the same since I have not had a recent entry to the country or stayed in hotel that reported me for awhile.

Not sure how long the reports are kept in their database for online reports done by hotels. I suspect they are not kept for more than a few months or their database would be overloaded.

Talked to some people that were not very happy about being fined for not reporting after a stay in hotel while I was there. 

From now on I will make sure my wife does the hotel registration so I don't have to worry about a report.

Would the hotel have to record your stay, regardless of who did the registration?

 

I would have thought that if they didn't report then they could be fined for not

complying, if  immigration were alerted.

just the last filed TM30, not the complete history.

 

Prior to this year, I often found my Driving Licence or pink ID card was accepted.

However this year, even if the wife booked, as soon as they saw me they insisted on my Passport.

 

We stayed in a hotel resort in Buriram earlier this year for a weekend break and another foreigner seen going into a room booked by his Thai wife was asked for his Passport. He didn't have it on his person and was asked to leave immediately. The hotel refused to return their payment for the room as his wife was still welcome to stay.

 

Hotels are being far more vigilant this year due to the recent enforcements and the threat by Immigration to increase fines to hotels in the future.

i thought it was just for ID purposes so their for driving licence should be OK . thats all i used when i was away last week in buriram.

Too right.

Not if a yellow house book and/or a pink ID card was used to apply for it. It would have the 13 digit ID number shown on them.
