Visa exempt entry - last was 60 day extension to visit family valid till November 25th - went last week got turned down due to TM.30 and didn't have all the papers needed to do the TM.30 so went again yesterday (23rd November) and did Tm.30 first then went to K section with Tm.30 and got under consideration stamp and to come back on Dec7th.

 

Documents for extension I had was is just the TM.7 form, one photo on the form, copy of passport and all the relevant visa and extension pages, copy of the tm.30 and 3 forms you get there plus 1900thb.

Cool thanks! So if my hotel does the tm30 online is that sufficient or do I need a print out of their online filing? Also, any hassle about an embassy letter?

I'm a US citizen and I entered visa exempt back in Feb, and did a Covid extension back in Sep with the embassy letter, so my current stamp is valid until Nov 30.

 

I tried to do a Covid extension at MTT today (Tuesday, 24 Nov) and was denied because I didn't have "proof of address".  This seems to be a new requirement and it looked like a lot of people were having problems.  The immigration officer seemed to say that a receipt from my hotel would be enough, but unfortunately I didn't have one on me.  I'm planning on going back tomorrow with a receipt, so we'll see how that goes.  I think if the hotel does the TM30 online and they have your address in their system that should be sufficient, but my hotel evidently hasn't done that.  I tried showing them my hotel key (which has the name of the hotel on it), but that got me nowhere.

 

Lack of an embassy letter didn't seem to be an issue.  They give you a short form to fill out instead.  The last time I did the Covid extension, I had a letter from the US embassy, but now the embassy website says they aren't giving out the letters anymore because they aren't required.

 

Also, be sure to book an appointment online, as they check for that.  I just showed them a screencap of the confirmation screen.

You need the hotel to file a TM30. It will be useless going back tomorrow without it. A receipt of payment will not cut it.

BTW your hotel could file a TM30 and give you a print out of it. 

I'm overstating this but for others applying for extension it's important to deal/stay with hotel that confirms that they will do this for you.

How certain are you about that?  The woman working there told me that a receipt from the hotel would be good enough.

 

I asked at my hotel, they said they're currently having problems doing the TM30 for some reason.

 

I would be interested to know if anyone has tried to do this (at MTT, recently, for Covid extensions on visa exempt entries) with a receipt and without the TM30.

You could say that you were advised that receipt of payment to hotel would be acceptable. I have read where folk renewing their annual extension showing utility bills etc. and that was sufficient. 

Good luck. Please report back your experience to assist others.

What if you are staying at a private apartment in Bangkok? I have never been asked for this in 20 years and the past decade at my current flat.

Depends on what basis you live in Thailand. 

Stating "past decade at my current flat" means what? Living here on extensions based on...?

BTW private apartment means what?

Visiting a few months of the year in the winter every year, but renting the flat year round. Not living here, but visiting for 2 visits of two months each every year coming in on visa exemp. Stuck here now and can't get back home to Taiwan.

In other words you need to obtain extension.

That means you need to demonstrate where your staying... Simple really

Yes. So will my paid bills in the landlord's name be sufficient or must i get my friend who owns the place to file a tm30? It's the same flat for the last 10 years of visa exempt extensions I have filed 2 times a year.

No offense but you have asked similar questions for every "end of amnesty" and now end of your current extension.

I would have all this organized weeks ago. Now you post your planning on visit to IMM and wonder if you should have your friend file TM30.

In any event best of luck.
