I'm Puzzled Why My 90 Day Report was Returned to Me Unstamped

Recommended Posts

I've been sending in 90 Day Reports by Mail since 2011. Every time it has been returned to me in my self addressed stamped envelope duly stamped with a new 90 Day target date. 

My last 90 Days target date was March 9. I was under the impression that I could send in the report up to 10 days before the target date or up to 7 days after the target date if I do it by mail.

I sent my last 90 Day Report by Registered Post (EMS) on March 9. That's the date the T47 with all the necessary copies of my passport pages was postmarked. I just got back the self addressed envelope. But this time, the form was not stamped and a handwritten note on my T47 says: You must report in person.

I am completely puzzled what went wrong. 

 

This is now March 26 and we just started a 5 week lockdown. It's not a complete lockdown but I am 72 years old and the information I have heard is that no one over 70 should go leave their home. 

So I am thinking to wait until the emergency is over and then go to Chaeng Wattana to clear up this 90 Day Report. But I am still confused why my report was rejected.

 

Any thoughts or advice what to do next?

 

As always, thanks to the contributors and moderators of this Forum.

Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that

  • In person, you can apply up to 15 days before or seven days after the due date.
  • Online, you can apply in a window from 15 days until seven days before the due date.
  • By post, your 90-day report must be delivered to Immigration no later than the due date.

I believe you must do the report in person if you want to take advantage of the seven day grace period.

It is 15 to 7 days before the report date to mail them. At most offices they will accept them up to the report date.

Chaeng Wattana wants them mailed 15 days before.

This from notice given out a few years ago. See: 90day_notification.pdf

My understanding is that the "15-to-7-days-before" window for online reporting applies equally to the snail mail method. It looks like the OP was late with his report on this particular occasion.

 

The last time I used the snail mail method, my EMS report hung around at the post office serving my local immigration office (not CW) for 9 days after receipt from the local sorting office before finally being successfully delivered! Fortunately, the immigration office did not penalise me for late reporting on that occasion, like CW have the OP in this particular instance, since they were presumably well aware that their local post office was (and presumably still is) a masterpiece of bungling ineptitude and incompetence!

The op can check at https://track.thailandpost.co.th/  to see when his EMS letter was received at CW, to see if late arrival (most likely) was the reason. BTW the 90 days are now done in person at another building in Meaung Thong Thani, I read since yesterday. I wouldn't go until next 90 day is due.

With this new pop-up location for 90-day reporting, should one assume the mailing address for filing the TM-47 remains unchanged?

It will still be the same address.

Always mail 15 days before to be on the safe side.

i think trusting a passport to the mail is a brave thing to do.

Isn't the fine 500 baht per day up to 20000 for being late with 90 day report? Or is that for overstay?

 

I am supposed to do my 90 day report next week here in Hua Hin. Has anyone else here gone to the Hua Hin immigration recently?

 

Perhaps I should sit this one out and take the fine? What is everyone else doing?

 

I don't really feel like sending my passport in the mail. I live so close to the immigration that if I'm going to the post office I might as well just go to the immigration office instead.
