Thai Immigration announce changes to TM30 reporting

This is why I mentioned these should be vetted by a lawyer. Vague language creates nothing but opportunities for corruption and confusion.

 

Either way -- either an ongoing TM30 permission or at worst one requiring an annual renewal/refresh -- would be an improvement over the prior "every time you go abroad and return" requirement.

AFAIK, my annual extensions of stay and re-entry permits are not "extended."  They run one year and they expire... And in order to remain, I have to apply for new ones before the old ones expire, AKA, lose their "validity".

When you apply for a extension of your permit to stay never expires unless you fail to apply for an extension.

The new re-entry permit is only to keep your permit to stay valid when you enter the country. If you did not have one your extension would be gone.

Waste of your time and immigrations to go to an office

And that was the crazy and unfair requirement that when you applied for an extension of stay and the owner of the place where you are staying had not filed a TM30 of you arriving at his premisses, that you were fined for his shortcoming and worse that your application for extension of stay could be denied until the matter was solved.

That issue should not occur now since the report only needs to be done once. I think most people had problems because they had left the country or stayed someplace that reported them. Only first time applicants should possibley have that problem.

Never done a TM30 in 10 years, moved around a bit too (overseas and local).

Well any amendment to the TM30 is a step in the right direction,but still confused I am. My wife and I own our home in Chiang Mai,she submitted the TM30 to inform immigration that I live at the property she owns arghhh. We have been considering doing a road trip to Sukhothai,Tak,Hua hin,phuket and back,about 6 weeks in total. Upon our return to our home in CM does she need to re submit the TM30 to tell them I am back at home and my permanent address. 
The other amendment could be,people that live here on a permanent basis like myself,Retirement visa should only need to inform immigration once you change your permanent address. Taking one less drama out of the equation.

You are very logical.

The alien as defined in paragraph one shall include those who

being granted multiple-visa who leaves and returns to the Kingdom with specified

time in the visa, and those with re-entry permit.

Does this mean this only applies to those with a single or multiple entry attached to their visa? If not travelling outside Thailand and not applying for a single or multiple entry, would you still have to jump through the hoops if travelling around thailand with one permanent place of residence?

I am the house master. Already reported myself, wife and our child in a TM30.  Gone to the beach and staying at an AirBNB. Property manager copied all passports and said she must report us all in the system to immigration. So when get back home to Bangkok I have to report us all over again in Section 38 app? Yes or No. I have retirement visa and wife and child follow my visa. What is this I see TM28 been replaced with TM27 and TM29? More opportunity for immigration to confuse and issue fines looks to me.
