How to complete aTM30 with no TM6

Recommended Posts

After several months of waiting for a working password and registration the website will not process visitor without a TM6

 

Any ideas is is it back to the snailtrail, fotocopy shop , Fil in TM30 manually and drive to the Office?

 

Any advice welcome , I read that TM6 was to be abolished but website makes no allowance or does the site need updating .

 

Forgive my ignorance it's all so confusing and seems the only nation of 50+ O have worked and lived/visited to have such convolutions.

Why don't you have a TM6 departure card. You can get a new one at a immigration office.

Maybe you have the number for it on something.

It is not me it a visitor who didnt receive one at Swampy. I recieved one at Chiang Mai airport a few weeks back.I am on a NonO

 

I asked if they had lost it?

They said it was not given at Swampy 2 weeks ago

 

There are numerous press reports they will end but the TM6 number is needed to make the webpage work, if you don't fill it in you cannot process it.

Am I the only one to experience this a friend from Europe here in November was given the same one as me on a visa exempt visit

The TM6 being eliminated was a proposal that has not been done yet.

Your problem is probably one of the reasons they have not moved forward with it. There are lots of things that require the TM6 number that will have to be changed such as the online reporting.

I think your visitor may of gotten the TM6 but lost it since they no longer staple them into your passport. The new small ones would be easy to misplace or lose.

It will not be accepted without a TM6 number on it.

I had an international flight into Swampy the other day -- the first one I'd had in about a year. So I too was wondering whether the TM6 forms were still gonna be in use.

 

Indeed they are still in use there. The airline handed them out during the flight. And the Immigration officer who processed me in took and stamped and returned part of the TM6 back to me, as has always been the custom.

This is absolutely the case. Just flew into DM today from Saigon. The airline hands them out and OP your "visitor" would have received a tm6. He has misplaced/lost it.

This happens all the time and as result at passport control for departure Los the attendants hold up a blank tm6 to check if you have one. If misplaced you move aside and fill in. Your arrival etc is on stamp in pp.

Back to OP. You did not explain why you need file tm30 for "visitor". If just a friend do nothing unless they need attend imm for something like an extension. 

If they are tourists they can fill in tm6 at departure.

Almost every immigration form requires the TM6-card number. Also online reports requires it.

He would not have gotten it at Swampy. He would have gotten it on the plane and handed it as a 2 part form to Immigration when they stamped him in. They would not have stamped him in without it.

 

They will have handed back half of it inside his passport. It is very small and he would not see it if he did not look..just a small square of paper slipped inside the passport.

 

He should double check his passport, pockets etc.

I don't think we are talking about experienced travellers.

It doesn't matter if he got it on the plane or at the airport.  The issue is he does not have one.  Also doesn't matter if he lost it or was never given one.  So he just need to go to immigrations and get one.  Problem solved.

He posted in this topic that his guest got a TM6 at immigration so the TM30 report is done.

You do not RECEIVE the Tm6, you fill it out on the plane before you arrive.

happend to me a few weeks ago, i lost my TM Card, but had to do my TM30 online as i came back from a weekend trip. Luckily i had a picture from an old TMCard, and i used this number. Registration was successful. One week later i had to go to CW immigration for a 12 month extension of my non immigrat O Visa. They see the the numbers not fit, but i blamed my landlord for the mistake. So it was no problem at all.

 

The only problem was, i have to go to a police station and report the lost of the TMCard, after that the immigration gave me a new TM Card, with handwritten TM6 number.
