No secret at all, but without clear instruction on how to do it, it's a rather frustrating trial and error to do what is in essence rather simple.

I'm going to borrow this thread a bit. 

What info do I need to do the TM30 myself? 

 

My agent/owner is going AWOL. I understand it's there duty to report it, but it's me that has to pay up the day I go for my extension. 

 

- Adress + Unit number

- Copy rental contract

- My personal info

- Copy my passport / Immigration card

 

? Owner ID? Owner name? 

 

I can make out the owner name from my rental contract, but I can not provide a photo copy of the ID. 

 

Thanks a lot. 🙂

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?

To my knowledge it's a TM28 form you need, if you report the address yourself – TM30 is for landlords, including hotels – you can download the form (both TM28 and TM30) here.

 

You need to report within 24 hours from arrival at the address, either to the local immigration office, and if an immigration office is not available, then to the local police station. You might also be able to mail the form to the immigration office by letter (I have no experience in that, perhaps some other poster has and kindly will enlighten us).

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.

No real estate agency are responsible for the TM30 report unless it's in the contract or you made an agreement. You need signed copies of the owners blue house book and ID-card. Some immigration offices wants a "power of attorney" to accept your report if you go there yourself, some don't. Another option is using the Section38 app, but then same documents are needed when registering without the power of attorney. If you had a rental contract it would help. Then you could register yourself as Foreigner, then as the possessor on Section38 using the first page of your contract and the info/photo page in your passport. Those two documents needs to be uploaded when registering. Without any of the mentioned documents, you might have a problem, and you should have thought about this earlier when you decided to move in with your gf.

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.

Your advise is totally incorrect. If I don't go and report my address I will certainly have problems when going for an extension of stay two months after flying back in every time on a METV. Lots of people have previously been fined at different offices around the country as well as needing to do one before they were allowed to extend.

On the TM28 form it says that the police station needs to be notified of the address: http://www.immigrationbangkok.com/files/visa_forms/tm28.pdf

 

หมายเหตุ ๑. ยายที่พักตองแจงภายใน  ๒๔ ชั่วโมง

Your local police station must be notified of any change of address within 24 hours.

 

That is confusing. Is it a must to go to the station?

 

The TM28 form also doesn't say that any documents (like a blue book or owners ID or rental contract) are needed when handing in the form. Just only needing to fill it up. So does that mean only when a landlord is doing their own reporting on a TM30 they need to hand in those ID forms?

No

A TM28 form is for a change of address. 

The TM30 form can be done by the possessor of the residence which could be you. You would need a rental agreement,  copies of the owners house book and ID card signed by them.

Most police stations would not accept a TM28 form or even know what it is for.

A TM28 for is only needed to report a change of address in most cases at immigration. Many offices now want the TM30 form instead of a TM28 form now.

"Many offices" - does that include CW in BKK? I was previously living in the Jomtien immigration area and have a TM30 registered with them there but will now be moving to BKK.
