Chiang Mai Immigration Q & A - Info and reports. (2020)


Recommended Posts

Will I still able to update my current TM30 by myself at CM Imm when I return from Vietnam in early March? I do have a Yellow Book & the last couple of times I have returned to Thailand from other countries, it has never been a problem.

 

Thanks for any forthcoming advice.

Do not go to a visa agent. Go to the nearest immigration office. Do not leave it until the last possible day. Bring 1,900 baht, a passport photo, your passport, a photocopy of the personal detai

Personally, I don't give a flying flamingo about who any older expat male chooses to keep company.  And it doesn't bother me to see expat men with Thai women decades younger them then.  I've been happ

Rumours abound that from 1st March the 90 day reporting and TM30 reporting are moving back to Promenada; somebody said they heard this from an IO.   Anyone know if this has been or can be confirmed ?

This is good news, I think? We won’t have the crowds like now.

Confirmed by the notice that they will be providing transport from the airport office to and back from Prominada for these two services.  AC BMWs less than 2 years old with drivers will be available.

Yes (absent some possible change as noted above).  Just go up to the third floor, they'll hand you a queue number, and you'll likely be taken care of in less than 5 minutes.  Best to go after 1PM as less people around then.  All you need is your passport with your new TM6 (departure card) and TM30 Receipt of Notification (on which they'll place a new date stamp or print you out new one if the one you have is raggedy or full).

TM 30 reporting is done on the 3rd floor so does not create crowding downstairs.90 day reporting can be done online in the comfort of your home or by mail at your nearest PO.In fact there is a school of thought that these 2 methods should be compulsory and that would help eliminate this current chaos of queuing.So simple to do

Sure 90 days is so easy on line, relax and within a few hours approved, as long as your info. is correct !  also TM 30 online or via the app.  , so only a visit 1 time a year for an extension and if you think about it and not go early morning, perhaps mid afternoon, never a problem.   Too many complaints here, just think and relax, really 1 time a year is a problem.  Never used an Agent and never will !

Yes, and also TM30 reporting can be done on-line in the comfort of your home.

I compiled a comprehensive step-by-step instruction detailing how to register on the IO TM30 website and subsequently file your TM30s on-line.

It's easy (if you know how to do it) and will take less than 2 minutes once you are registered and filed the very first one (which will take max 1 hour), so PM me if you'd like to receive a copy.

I was the one who suggested this first on Thaivisa i.e. those which don't need official approval like

 

1. the 1 month tourist extension

2. TM30

3. 90 days report

4. reentry permit

5. transfer of stamp

 

Maybe some immigration officials read my suggestion in this forum? ... 😚

 

90 days can be done online, you don't even need to go.

 

I don't know how TM30 reporting is done online yet

I went to immigration at around 10-11 am this morning.

 

The queue to the front counter was long and snaked outside to the car park area.

 

Luckily, I only need to go to the TM30 upstairs on 3rd floor which was surprisingly empty and was served immediately.

Received my Retirment Extension to morning executed by The Colonel Visa Company (opp the Immgr Dept) arrived 8 45 am finished 10 30 am

Cost was 8500 baht ( includes  Immgr fee plus 4 x 90 day reports and Saloon  Passage  fee)

Excellent service was provided  by  The  Colonel perhaps 5 mins  spent  in the Immgr Dept(picture taken) 

btw  the Immgr Dept was heaving like  the old days 

8500 baht   IMO. 😀 well spent

As they are moving the mentioned items to Promenada, service at the new (near airport) building ought to be much better for annual extensions, I'd expect.  Of course, that partially depends on how many officers are moved to the Promenada office.

I do hope, however, that Immigration doesn't only use the old upstairs office at Promenada as it's much too small to handle much of anything (it's probably smaller than the third-floor TM30 office at the new building).
