Immigration set to announce automatic visa extensions and suspension of 90 day report

I see a number of people saying that the post office doesn't have 10baht stamps, why can't you use 4 x 3baht stamps ?

Because they specifically say to use a 10 baht stamp?  But the point is there is no rational reason for such if they are not going to return copies for use next time - as letter postage is 3 baht.  Getting 4 of them on envelope can be done but it should not be required.

I have never used mail application.
Perhaps they intend / do send back numerous copies thus postal rate goes up from 3 - 10baht ?
A clear case of screwed logic.

Common sense finally prevails about two weeks too late. The bureaucracy in this country is ridiculous.

It is a 90 day reporting alternative to visiting immigration but requires stamps so you still have to go out to buy them and mail the letter.

Indeed they did return the copies until the last year or so - but Bangkok seems to have changed to just returning the receipt the last times I did by mail.

Needless to say that I'll keep doing my 90-days reporting on time (via post) just to be on the safe side 😐

A very sensible idea. Because you just never know.

whats with all the critical posts on this thread so far - yes maybe a bit late but seems to me like sensible good news and I am pleased to hear this 

 

well done Immigration - eventually realised what was going on was unworkable and dangerous

 

Thumbs up from me

Hmmmm ... I detect some discrepancy between the message you posted praising Immigration for how they handle the present situation and the motto under all your posted messages reading 

> My tolerance for idiots is extremely low

I will continue my online 90 day report as normal, calling them after it gets to pending for them to approve on the phone. It's worked for the last 2 years.

But its been suspended so no need for stamps etc ....

 

Sure some unfortunate guys having been so indoctrinated with immigration conformity over the years will still be trying to do it, or rushing to fill in a tm30 if they accidently cross the borders into another province or presenting to their local office to proudly show still they still have 27 million baht in the bank and havent spent it on loose women, gambling and whisky.

No it has not been suspended - only talk of doing so for a limited time period.
