In person - Jomtien. Any help to which documents needed would be great 🙂

I figure if I try to bring 80-90% of what they want, perhaps they could show some leniency with the TM30. The only thing I can't re-produce is a photo copy of the owners ID, or other personal info except full name.  

I PM-ed you a step-by-step instruction on how to register on the IO TM30 website, which will allow you to file your TM30s (as well as of any foreign guest staying at your place).

Strictly speaking, within 24 hours of arriving at the residence. 

You're actually not supposed to register online as a tenant even if people says so. If you succeed to register as a foreigner, in the system you'll be the owner/landlord of your registered address and

A Change of Address + the TM30 is more of a permanent change of address for expats to another province to be able to start doing 90 days reports and extensions at the new local immigration office.

"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.

There were several posts here last year about CW and TM30 reporting, and that they do accept the TM30 to be self reported as the possessor. No need for the TM28.

I have self reported the TM30 twice at Jomtien Immigration since 2017 when changing condo. You need to fill in the form you get at the front desk = 2 papers stapled together.

You fill in the first page as the possessor/owner in your name and address. On the second page you report yourself as the guest. All info you need is in your passport. You need these copies:

A copy of your rental contract.

2 copies from your passport:

The photo page and the entry stamp.

A copy of your departure card (the TM6-card). 

All copies signed at the bottom in blue ink.

That's what I used and it worked perfectly. The only problem with self reporting is the possible fine if you haven't been reported earlier or if it was a while ago. They might mention the "unofficial" 72 hours after entering the country. The fine is normally 1600 baht at Jomtien Immigration. People aware of this sometimes checks in at a hotel where they will be reported, and then go to immigration for the TM30 report. You might save 1000 baht doing the same if the 1600 baht is to much for you. If not, pay the eventual fine with a smile and then staple the TM30 receipt in your passport. When travelling in Thailand, you don't need to report again when coming back to the last reported address. Just keep doing the 90 days reports.

Easy (if you know how to do it)!

Could you please pm those instructions to me? 

 

Can I register online by myself, or does it have to be done by my landlord? 

 

Thanks

You can register on behalf of the landlord, or register as tenant.

Did PM you the step-by-step instruction, and you're welcome.

You're actually not supposed to register online as a tenant even if people says so. If you succeed to register as a foreigner, in the system you'll be the owner/landlord of your registered address and are able to register people staying with you. That's what it's officially are designed for. Let's say you're moving to another address. That can not be changed online. Then you have to register again with a new username as a foreigner,but the old registration will still be in the system. It's much better if your landlord registers and report you as a guest and if he agrees to give you the username and password. In the system online you have to enter move in and move out date, and the move out date can only be 1 year ahead. If you're staying not to far from Immigration, the TM30 report in person is very simple if your local immigration office accepts self reporting as the possessor. I have done 3 reports myself in person when changing condo and it took maybe 5-7 minutes every time.

Even easier to register ON BEHALF of the owner/landlord.  You only need a copy of their thai ID-card and a copy of the house-book to do that.  That will allow you to register with YOUR e-mail address, so that you do not have to bother the owner/landlord with this.

But in case the landlord is not willing to provide you with a copy of his ID-card, there is the option to register as tenant using your passport and copy of the rental contract.

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

Just go to your local immigration within 24 hours. 

Are you serious? Does someone really travel all the way to the immigration to do this TM30? I have never been asked for a TM 30 in the past 10 years of staying here and never heard anyone I know doing one. 

 

Has something changed recently because they never asked for it at Chaeng Watthana? 

 

How do you even do it if you stay at your own house – I don't get it since there is no landloard?

I just did PM you a Guideline document on TM-30 which will clarify this often misunderstood document and when it is needed.

When I have done my TM30, at Phayao Immigration, I simply go with my Thai/wife GF and fill in the required forms.  I/O has sometime checked with her about the address I have given, to get Thai spelling.  Never has he ever aske for any evidence of the property existing.

Main thing is to do this as soon as possible.  One time I stayed 2 days in BKK before travelling to Phayao, and there was great fuss because I could not find receipt from the hotel I had stayed at in BKK.  make sure you can account for every day in Thailand before you go to your I/O

 

I have a 'Yellow Book' which I always take to I/O when doing this, and no-one is ever interested in it.

TM30  Just one more thing to tell you you are not really welcome in Thailand.

Section 38. The house – master , the owner or the possessor of the residence , or the hotel manager
where the alien , receiving permission to stay temporary in the Kingdom has stayed , must notify the
competent official of the Immigration Office located in the same area with that hours , dwelling place or
hotel, within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the alien concerned.

 

Your wife is the owner and house master, you are a possessor of the house.

Either one of you can register.
