I am following this thread..... 

 

My parents arrive next week for a month and are staying in my house.  I am registered and up to date with my TM30 reporting for myself, but want to know how to do it for my parents at my address.

Your son has a 60 day tourist visa and extends this by 30 days?

In any case by law you would be required to file a TM30 for him, but if he got his 30 day extension previously already and won't visit the immigration office, then there is no real need to do the TM30.

If he plans to get his 30 days extension while staying with you you should file a TM30 or he or you might get fined when he goes to apply for the extension.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear he is only staying 60 days has visa for the amount of time he is staying doesn't need to apply for extension do i need to register him as staying with me.. We will  be traveling a little staying in Hotels do they not contact immigration. Each time we check in.. Out would my son not get questioned on leaving Thailand after 60 day as where he has been staying  thanks  any help appreciated

Don't worry about it and don't waste your time.

Depends on the hotel; by law they should, but depends where you stay (I've stayed in hotels in Bkk that weren't interested in seeing my passport, just booked in using my girls ID).

The rule is you should submit a TM30 to declare a foreigner staying at your residence, you would need to take a completed form, copies of his passport and TM6 card. Also proof you are the owner of the condo. 

I did this for a friend and no issues, other than it was likely completely unnecessary. 

As your son has a Visa and presumably no need  to attend immigration for an extension, or other service, there is really no need of a TM30. (Unless he gets into some trouble......)

Unless they are planning to extend visas before they fly out..i wouldnt bother. 

But they have to put an address of stay down on their arrival card from the flight.  

 

I was thinking of booking them into a hotel for a couple of nights before they check out and come to stay at our house.  

 

It's going to be difficult to get all the stuff I need to take to immigration... as the land owner / builder of my house is away too.

The address on the arrival card is sort of nominal. They'll get stamped in whatever address they put on it....so they changed their minds after arrival!

However, as was mentioned above, if they're going to have to get an extension from Jomtien, THEN the TM30 is needed.

 

  @jak2002003 that would seem to apply to your case too if your parents are staying 30 days or less without a visa or 60 days or less if they have Tourist Visas. (I'm assuming they hold passports from one the G9 nations)

Immigration at the airport only worry about overstays. They do not care where the traveler stayed during his visit. He will not be questioned on that.

The address on the arrival card has nothing to do with the TM30 report, it's more of an initial address. It doesn't have to be your address. If not extending the stay at immigration,don't worry about any TM30 report.

It certainly isn't mine wherever I fill it in. "Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit" does me fine (although it was "Dusit Thani Rama IV" until it was closed)

I used "Travelling around" for many years. No problem at all.

Well, I thought that too.  But my parents were grilled about the address, as it had no house number... and in immigration woman was not very friendly with them, saying it was not a hotel and she wanted the house number... she even called over another immigration officer.  Other people were also getting a lot of questions about where they were staying.  Perhaps its only in CM airport they are like this?

They are not extending their stay.  I wish they put a hotel address on it (which I gave them before they left).  

 

Anyway, I have managed to register them at my address online... I think!  Have the screen shots and printed them off for them.  

 

It seems they are not very welcoming of some tourists these days compared to a few years back.  If they want to encourage tourists to come they need to change their attitude and train the staff to be more polite when asking questions.  It's making people think they are criminals.

If they leave your address and go somewhere else and get reported while staying in a hotel,and then maybe back to your place again,you have to report them again. They are tourists and immigration don't care (I'm not talking about immigration at the airport). When staying here long term,then it's another story.
