When I fly back to Thailand (BKK) I will be moving in with the gf who rents from her cousin. Believe that a TM30 needs to be done within 72 hours of arriving in BKK, correct?

 

No written rental contract between them as they are family. Cousin lives and works overseas. How can a TM30 form be done to satisfy immigration's requirements in this situation? I believe the cousin needs to do this online via some website (don't know which one) or some app (believe that it can only be downloaded in Thailand). Is it possible for the cousin being overseas and without a written rental contract to do this and if so, how?

You have more posts than me and your asking about TM30 come on.

Just go to your local immigration within 24 hours.

So long as you can get hold of copies of the blue book, etc, or generate a lease document, you can report online or at the office. links to the online are on immigration websites.

Go to the immgration with what???? I'm sure they'll show you the door if you just turn up there with no documents that they require. Plus it's the landlord that is meant to register the tenant (or person staying there) the 1st time they arrive there. Usually handled by a real estate agent when a new foreigner tenant moves in.

Yes can go to Chaeng Wattana but with what documents? Just myself and passport? I'm sure they won't accept it.

Have no idea what a blue book is. Will need to ask the gf to ask her cousin. Hopefully the cousin didn't take it overseas to the place she's working.

 

Generating a lease document with the gf as the tenant would be sufficient for immigration? Or need to do a fake lease agreement with my name as the tenant?

 

I'm guessing this is the correct link for the "landlord cousin" to do a TM30 online? https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn24online/

 

And this is the registration page for them to first register? https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn24online/FilterNoLogonServlet?nodeId=24&programId=FNHOTELREG

Easy (if you know how to do it)!

OP, how long will you be staying at gf.

What I mean is are you actually moving to Thailand. Unless you need to attend immigration then IMO do nothing.

I'm in and out of Thailand every other week, I would only do a tm30 just prior to attending imm for reason such as extension. 

If you decide to file a tm30 you can try Peters guide. You will need it as many have found online app difficult. You can also do it by mail and file as possessor. Plenty of threads on that. Which imm office do you use.

I would do nothing. Up to you.

I stayed with my girlfriend in Bangkok on numerous occasions and she just laughed when I suggested that she report to Immigration. If there is no report, then no one knows you ever left your province. After two years, I have never had any problems. If you want to make it difficult, go ahead and file a report yourself, otherwise, no one is the wiser.

Aso to add if he takes the GF away for the weekend she should book the room cause if he gives over his passport the hotel may file a TM.30.

Exactly. Just to add. When was last report of fine etc tm30. I did my first few months back for attend CW for annual extension. The io did not even look at my first ever tm30 in 7 years here. She just pushed it back to me. Was not even interested. Before folk tell me that's because you had tm30 on file, how's that possible if never done one. Even prior to my first ever annual extension.
