After 30 years in Thailand????

Try another idea. 😆😆

Was that the answer to all or only to one of the questions? I somehow know you were going to get hooked on the last one.

Speak out now. What do you think is most bad? How bad is it, and how much problem, headahce and pain is it giving you?

Didn't agree with your 'it's only a 3 hour trip' statement.

Some people travel a lot, one of the benefits of being retired.

Some of them might reside quite far away from their local Imm' office and if married or living with their wife/girlfriend and depending on that office's ideas it may be a day or two day trip everytime they return home.

I see the whole thing as blowing out the light bulb with a 12 bore shotgun.

So let me get this straight. If I take one of my bike trips from CM to, say KK for a couple of days, when I come home, my wife has to file a TM 30, even though we have been living here for over 10 years? 

Yes you if when you were away you stayed somewhere that reported you as staying there e.g a hotel or resort but if you stayed with friends who didn’t report then no need as immigration would not know you had been away from your normal residence in CM
I work for a BOI company and on occasion have to stay in other parts of the country in the course of my work
When I return to my normal place of residence after such a trip I have to report to Samut Prakan immigration that I am “Home”
I do this by the online system as the Possessor of the property that I rent
My landlord is not involved in this process nor is my gf but she did have to help with the original registration etc as we all know there are many problems with the website which is well documented in many threads on TV about the whole tm30 thing

Now you just made me laugh until tears came again. Great solid one. 😂

Yeah, I can understand that. If it´s very far and there is still an office that asks for TM30 when people only been travelling between provinces.

However, this is something that should no longer exist. Instead of making petitions, it would be better if all still affected told the office that they are wrong. There is a hotline to report them. Use it and make a difference. The continued talk here is leading nowhere.

In a recent meeting, my Immigration Office told me, they have decided that TM30 shall only need to be filed upon return after leaving the country.

You must be from the US.

Pathetic country run by little children !!!

You lost me there. In what way is it pathetic? Is the whole country pathetic? How do you mean that have a connection to reporting your whereabouts within 24 hours?

Feels like vietnam now. What a bunch of foolish paper works.

 

i was in vietnam recently with a 1 year multiple entry visa(no police check needed) and stayed in multiple cities for several days and there is no requirement whatsoever to report my whereabouts. maybe hotels do it but doubt as i stayed at a friends condo also and no reporting needed.

 

after returning to thailand where i hold a retirement visa and have presented a police check from my home country and own a condo i did a tm30 and mailed it registered mail. printer head dry so needed to travel first to print shop.  weeks since initial registration of mobile tm30 app but no password yet.

As far as I understand the short report this is about people who have failed to report their migrant workers. obviously a nation will not tolerate illegal workers coming from abroad. If an employer does not report their migrant workers the police may assume they want to cover it up. Sounds reasonable. In Germany this would lead to far heavier consequences for an employer. - We all know that the TM30 is an issue also for expats. But why is the same stuff repeated over and over even if it is totally nonsense (at least partly), not as bad at all and finally not really connected with the details in the initial thread. Seems to be a habit of complaining. There will be solutions and there already are.

From the way i read the article (and photos), the crackdown appears to be confined to migrant workers such as Cambodians, Burmese etc. No indication that farangs are getting stiffed.

 

Panic over.

But the paranoids  will still portray everything and anything as  being  directed  against   the  "farang".
