It's a looooooong way till 31st July, and am sure an update will appear way before then, especially if the boarders don't open... 

Maybe scrap the 90 day reporting forever ?

Chiang Mai Immigration has set up a Drive Through 90 day reporting system at laft hand side of the main building.  I showed up at 12:45 yesterday and just parked directly outside the window for 10 minutes until they finished their lunch break.  A very friendly IO processed my papers in about 2 minutes but strangely asked a lot of questions seemingly to verify that my name and address was as claimed.  Waiting a short time in the car with radio and the a/c was no hardship but if the queue was longer it might not be so relaxed.

Obviously doing your 90-day reports on-line is the easiest way to do it.  No registration required, no documents to upload or show, no questions asked by IO, just fulling in the required data and normally within 24 hours your report is approved and you can scan/print the 'next appointment date' that you need to have with you.

But as the due date will have passed by July 31 is everybody going to rush to immigration on August 1? I would hope not, but they need to have a system in place to make a return to normal.

Don't worry, there will be no crowds of people forced to do their 90 days reports the same day the amnesty is over. The 90 days report is the least important thing to do at immigration, so there will be a plan.

According to my IO, when 90 day reports resume, it will be 90 days from when your last report was due, as if you'd continued to do them normally.

I've already crossed out my previous date on my report slip and hand written the next 90 day date on the slip as a reminder.

However as my next extension application is due prior to my next 90 day report, I'm expecting them to manually reset my next 90 day report from the date of my approved extension, which is what they normally do.

That will mean my next 90 day will be due October.

I would agree with that because the original notices translated to say everything would be done automatically. But as TIT I suggest we wait the next announcement as UJ says.

Normally I'd do that, but my VPN had a bug that kept it running even though the indicator said it was disconnected, and that stopped me reaching the Immigration site in time.  Ubon Joe's post made me check!

I read that some people have no problem doing 90 day report online whilst others find it impossible. I intend to try to do mine online but wondered if there is any difference between doing by pc or mobile. Have people had more success by using pc or using mobile?

My 90 day is due mid June, I will take the 15 minutes to renew it at the time and save all the drama later.

I did it on Win 7/32. IE didn't work, older Firefox didn't work, latest Chrome was problem free. Good that I didn't give up too soon.

Renewed mine last week. Took 2 minutes as no customers and full compliment of staff still working. Not sure why you'd wait until the cattle gates open in July if you can do it beforehand.

If you are living close to IO or need to be there often, hopping in to do it is an option.

But if you are living far away from your IO (mine is +70 km away in Sisaket, where I never have to be for any other reason), doing it on-line is by far the preferred solution.  My very first on-line 90-day report took me less than 10 minutes to submit, with approval next day.

I don't live close to an IO and I don't need to be there often; and doing it on-line is not an option in all provinces, so taking an hour or so drive now (with little else to do at present) to an empty IO office was by far my preferred solution.... as opposed to doing the drive to stand in queues in July.

As you will have to go to immigration when you submit your extension request I would also do the 90 day report then, the sections are usually completely separate and the extension application does not count as or act as a 90 day report. Since you are in immigration anyway you loose nothing by doing that and ensure that your next report can be online.

 

If you didn’t need to go to immigration anyway it’s a different case.

My IO is one that resets your 90 day reports whenever you submit an extension application.

They never used to until a couple of years ago.

Their reasoning is that by resetting your 90 day report when issuing the extension, it means in 12 months time your 90 day will fall within the window to submit your extension application again.

 

However where it then falls apart is that during the year the new 90 days is always set from 90 days of the date you submit it, not the date is was due. So if you apply 14 days prior to the due date, by the end of the year the 90 day and extension aren't in the same window.

 

It's Thai logic, we'll never understand it.
