Jomtien Immigration still asking for the 3 months proof of the 800K?

Recommended Posts

I still have to do my 3 months report that the 800K hasn't been touched in 3 months, but wondering if Immigration is still insisting on this for 12 month extensions of stay, or has it gone south alongside some of their other innovations?

If you were given a form to sign and date to go back I would recommend doing it. It only took me 10 minutes when I did mine due to waiting. Otherwise when you come to renew.........

A lot of time spent getting there and back, in and out in 5 minutes.

I agree, if you have been given a form to sign you should comply and do it. But you have prodded my interest, that I haven't heard of anyone being asked in Jomtien to do so lately. I have Ext renewal next month, so will find out.... or will the big fuss over insurance cause a rush on the place and procedures be forgotten in the crowds, just like last year! It is kinda what I hope for wrt TM30 compliance!😀

About 2 weeks ago, I was still handed that form saying ‘report in three months’

 

Oh, and BTW, she also took the copy of the TM30...

When i did my 3 month report a guy took the forms who sat outside the main desk. He didn't make any entries onto a computer or give any receipt of my documents. Are they acted on later? or is it just a paper exercise? I guess you can't take the risk so do the report.

Yes. Desk #8 job. Ten minutes at most.

After 1pm 1 min maximum if you have correct copies.

Has Jomtien, for instance, looked around the rest of the country, realising they're the only ones doing this madcap exercise and wonder that maybe they have it wrong.

They are simply confirming you are following the orders as specified. Better after 3 months or to get a rejection on your subsequent application in a years time? They are not doing it wrong, like those offices requiring 3 months pre-seasoning are.

Maybe you simply wish them to stop doing some things they do, I wish all of them would stop doing TM30 checks, when all I want is a 90 day report or C.O.R. Isn't Chaeng Wattana going above and beyond on that matter? 

 

Ours is not to reason why......

What's the point if Jomtien is the only office in the country doing it? If that is really the case as HHTel stated.

Sorry, this is referring to marriage visa, not retirement, but thought it might be useful to some people. When I went to Jomtien immigration last week to have my visa confirmed after the 1 month wait for it to be returned by Bangkok, they didn't ask to see my bank book. I assume this means that if I'd wanted, I could've spent the 400k the day after the interview. There was also no mention of it during the interview.

 I have heard Chiangrai were doing it, but hey, does there have to be a point? Or is an unchecked requirement a waste of time? One has to stop looking for reason here!

Yes, an unchecked requirement would be a waste of time, but then, Immigration is famous for this.

When will there be some uniformity among immigration offices?  Do they ever look outside their own little box?

The stupidity is unbelievable. 

If you are so smart you would know how to sync your 90 days check with the 90 days report you have to do anyway. Don't ask how to do it.
