TM30 question (on behalf of a thai person)

Recommended Posts

I have a Thai friend.

She owns her own condo.

Her foreign friend will fly from his country to visit her and stay at her condo for a few months.

She said the app for the TM30 is not working.

I have just tried the immigration website on 3 different browsers (English Version) which seems to be completely broken.

When I go to the Thai website, the website link also seems to be broken!

 

I'm wondering how all the tens of thousands of guest house & hotel owners manage to register every tourist when it seems like the website and app are broken ?

 

Also:  I have seen different info regarding the fine.

some sites have said between 800 to 2,000 baht.

and one article in the Bangkok Post said the fine can go up to 10,000 baht !

 

My friend said she is happy to pay up to 2,000 baht and not bother with the stress of the app and website. But if its 10,000 baht, then she will obviously try to register the foreigner.

Maybe the app works on some phones and not others?

 

Check out the reviews of this app on 'Google Play'

it seems that 90% of people say its broken or not working or has some fault.

or maybe you have an earlier version of the app which worked better ?

Presume the friend is coming as a tourist. Unless he will be attending immigration for something like an extension then do nothing.

I said it in my first post, but if he gives her address on arrival she is likely to be picked up if she doesn't do TM30. Also if he stays longer than 60 days on a tourist visa he has to go to Immigration to extend it, and have to give her address.

I think you will find the negative reviews are people having problems registering, incorrect documents etc, nothing to do with the app

Hi, I PM-ed you a step-by-step instruction on how to register on the IO TM30 website and subsequently file your TM30s.

It's easy (if you know how).

perhaps the same people who can never seem to file an online 90 day report either...which also has worked fine for the past 3 years I've been using it

We would assume that the friend that "will fly from his country to visit her" according to the OP, means in distant future. 

Yes currently no entry to Thailand for tourists.

As I mentioned in early post, unless he will be attending immigration for something like extension, do nothing.

Someone mentioned address on arrival. 

Put anything. Hotel Short time, soi 4.

Note to OP, if she is hell bent on doing the TM30, then do it by mail. Easy process.

Thanks peter.

My friend cant even get past stage 1 because the site isnt loading.

I am in London now and I can confirm the link does not work (tried in 3 browsers).

but others on this forum say its working fine,, so maybe its because I am outside of thaialnd?
