so this is just if you leave the country and then re-enter to your same address? 

What about if just go to another province for a week and then return to same address? 

Same address means same address it is stated very clear..... so if no same address need TM30 making

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?

If you have a single entry visa or visa exempt entry the reporting still applies to you.

If on a multiple entry visa or a extension of stay with a re-entry permit it applies to you.

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.

 

Supposing that "specified time in the visa" refers to the validity of our permission to stay in the Kingdom: so if we come back to the same address after the original visa and respective "specified time" have expired, but with a new visa and respective "specified time" in our passport, does the landlord/hotel manager have to report?

Surely if one of us "aliens" has a lease on a condo for one or more years, that should be proof that's where we intend to stay for the duration of the contract. Hence a 90 day report is superfluous. Same with someone living in a house in their Thai wife's name.

 

The simple solution would be that if you permanently leave your registered (via TM6 or TM30) place of residence you would be required to report your new residence within a specified period of time.  Such as 14 days or 30 days.  Don't do it and there would be some sort of penalty.  The requirement could be printed on the TM6 and TM30 forms so there would be no excuse for not knowing.

What valid period?

 

Could they not run it through an actual lawyer... in any case, too little, too late. Expats will remember this "hospitality" for years to come.

The ones still there.

 

The ones still trying to get back will have several other bitter and sad memories..

If they eventually get back.

No report for staying in hotel and etc if you return to your reported address is needed.

That is very clear in 2.2 of the regulation.

I just read that, so confusing when they right things they way the do, simple English would help as you have explained the way you understand it Joe.

 

So one more time for us slow ones if you don't mind please.

 

I have a marriage extension, so if I go to another province and, stay in a hotel or even go overseas and come back in on a re-entry permit, and return to my address, I do not have to do a TM30

 

But if I go overseas on and return on a reentry permit and stay in a province on holiday (say Phuket) for a week before I return to my province, then I would have to lodge a TM30 when I return ?

 

Thanks in advance

No and no. You only need to do one if you change addresses.

So, in a nutshell.

 

I can go in and out on my multi entry permit as long as I return to the same house of 20 years or so, that I have yellow book for, without worry or reporting, (for either of us), to anybody on a TM30?

 

Am I correct on this?......... End of story?

 

The mobile Section 38 app that does that TM30 check in is no longer working on my phone anyway.

So no more reporting at all, only if I change my address ?

 

Am I to understand that the TM30 is basically a dead duck, unless you change addresses ?

In your case yes.

In article 2.1 it appears that it also changed the reporting location requirement to be only immigration office and removed the local police station.

If so, that also helps to remove a point of issue some people reported previously.
