Do they transfer your landing card so you can still do 90 reports online?  My passport expires next year.

The TM-6 (Arrival/Departure Card), the TM-30 (Notification of Residence), and any 90-Day Report receipt papers can be physically moved over by the IO or by you into your new passport once the stamps are 'transferred'. The same TM-6 Departure Card portion (and its number) stays with you until you exit the country.

Funny thread.

Yes you need letter from your embassy. That gives Thai imm permission to transfer stamps. 

Also will transfer info from info previous non o .

There is no way to exit Thailand now. 

In any event you can travel with both passport

The Canadian Embassy doesn't issue a letter asking for the stamps to be transferred. I specifically asked and they said no, they put a stamp in the old passport showing it was cancelled "and that should be good enough".

I will print out the Transfer Stamp request and see if the Embassy will stamp it at least. Would be a real annoyance if they say no and I have to go back to the Embassy again.

not wanting to hijack the post, but how long do you have , to transfer the stamp to your new passport ?

 

does it have to be done ASAP , or can you do it on your next extension which might be months later ?

 

I guess you only get an extension to the expire date of your passport, right ?

There is not written minimum time to do it. But best to get it done so you do not have to have 2 passports with you when you need to dc something.

That is correct.

I switched passports last week at Pattaya. I went to the office first and asked if I needed to and they said only if I needed an extension. If I was just leaving by the airport don't bother. I had no letter from the Australian embassy but they stamped the old one saying it had been replaced and I wrote in the new number. Chonburi Immigration did the changeover in about 10 minutes. No questions, no fees.

I got a new Canadian passport in June, using the BKK Embassy. All that happened was that they sent the new and old passports and then I went to Phuket Immigration and all the key info got moved to my new passport- original entry date plus my O visa. All the paper stuff got stapled to my new passport. Make sure to ask for your old passport to be sent back and double check while at Immigration that everything was moved from old to new passports. Quite easy actually.
