Chong Chom border crossing experience

Recommended Posts

I departed Thailand at the Chong Chom / Osmatch border crossing a few days ago.  The Immigration Officer removed both my TM30 and 90 day report documents from my passport.  I asked him what he was doing and i was told these will be returned to me on my return.  He hadn't even determined if I  was returning via the same point, but that is in fact my intention.   Has anyone experienced this at this border crossing?  I am concerned the I.O. on entry will know nothing about it and this will give me a huge problem at Korat Immigration the following day.

 

Any personal experiences would be appreciated.   This is on the back of mind and no amount of $1 beers will bring peace of mind.

I have never heard of any crossing removing the report slips.

Maybe they were worried they would get lost at Cambodia immigration.

The missing 90-day slip is now academic in any event, since you will be resetting the 90-day reporting clock upon your return to Thailand.

 

The lack of a TM30 slip could, however, be more worrying if it means that you are now going to have to make a special trip to your local immigration office PDQ upon your return to Thailand clutching a freshly-completed TM30, which they might not otherwise have required you to make had the original TM30 slip still been in the passport.

Are you on an extension based on marriage or multiple entry non O visa ?

I'm on non O based on retirement. 

I assume you mean a extension of stay based upon retirement.

If you had a valid multiple entry non-o visa you would not be doing 90 day reports.

CM immigration requires you to do a new TM30 every time you return from another country so the old “missing” TM30 is academic as well.

The 90 day report slip is routinely removed by immigration at airports (although once or twice they have left it in).  As has already been pointed out, leaving the country means that these documents are no longer current.
