So back in November 2020 I forgot to do my 90-day reporting before the due date so I went to immigration and had that settled, paid the fine of 0 thb thanks to covid something and got a slip of paper with my new due date which is like February 3rd. The due date is approaching and I can't seem to get it done at all online, on the app it says I've overstayed (that can't be right , my visa expires in September this year) and on the website it just tells me to go to immigration. Of course the 1178 hotline is perpetually busy. This is my second day of trying and I'm not sure what I've done wrong, I'd like to avoid going to immigration if I can help it. Is it me or the system? I'm actually panicking lol

The app is no longer working, try the below site:   https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do

You're nearly right. It's actually 15 days before due date, so the O/P should be able to use it from today.    

A little over a week ago as I discussed in another OP I could not do my online report like I have for over the past year.  I was told by @ubonjoe that it was probably because my most current extension

Just go to immigration, their systems are broken and hardly ever work.

OP, there is a specific window of dates when you can do online reports, you cannot report greater than 2 weeks prior to due date, today is just 2 weeks prior. Try tomorrow. (within the 2 week prior window)

 

(the window used to be 2 weeks prior through to 1 week prior, but I recall that has changed recently to, I think,  include all of the 2 weeks prior, others can probably confirm the window)

A little over a week ago as I discussed in another OP I could not do my online report like I have for over the past year.  I was told by @ubonjoe that it was probably because my most current extension of stay was done the month after my current 90 day report was done.  So, with this occurring, I made an on-line appointment for the morning of the 18th at MTT.  I arrived at 8 am for my 8:30 am que, walked right in as I was first in Que, because of the online appointment, and met the IO at his desk.  He took less than 5 minutes to review my passport, my current extension of stay and the soon to be expiring 90 day report I had been able to print out from my last on-line report. I was then given a new 90 day receipt with my next reporting date in April. 

 

Here is the gist of why I had to report to MTT and do it in person. 

 

As soon as the new date was given to me by the IO I asked him about the online system, and why it would not allow me to complete the latest 90 day report.  He indicated it was due to my previous extensions date of allowed to stay that I had entered into the form on the database when I did my last 90 day on-line report.  Because of this the system believed I was on overstay, and he told me that unless something changes that I will again have to do it in person the first time after I complete my next extension of stay next November.  As I said he indicated that the system thinks that a person might be on overstay since the previous date of stay allowed until used the old extension one has in their passport, and not the new one  as the Until stay date used had already passed.  Apparently the databases for both the 90 day report and the Extensions of stay are not linked and the 90 day on-line report system will not show your current extension of stay until the IO verifies it and inputs it into the 90 day system.  He then advised me that I should have no problem from now on and I can then do the next three 90 day reports on-line, but after the next extension I will more than likely have to appear in person to show my lovely face.  Crazy that they can not link the two databases and for the 90 day system to see the most current extension of stay.  Just wanted to update you folks as to what the IO said and what my experience was at MTT.  On-line booking for an appointment is the way to go nowadays here in Bangkok.

HUH. that actually makes sense, my previous online report was done before my extension last september ... so basically , i need to go to MTT anyway . that was very helpful and explains alot, thank you ! i suppose since everything's in my passport i just need to bring that ? and the old old online report too i suppose..

I have read about the reason being that extension was done and then the online report not possible. 

So how is the following explained.

1. 90 report in person Aug 13 last year.

2. Annual extension (retirement) October 15.

3. Successful online report Oct 30.

4. Currently unable to do online report.

 

My point is ....since I have done a 90 day report online after my last annual extension why can't I do one now.

BTW have tried the web link and imm app.

Also my current status states stay valid to Nov 2021.

Now another bl**dy trip to MTT.

The date for your extension was still shown as the one dated November 2020 in the system when you did the report in October.

WTH, the system is definitely messed up since they did their system update....ugh.  If that happens the next time to me, I will schedule another 8:30 am on-line appointment so I am in and out again and do not have to sit through a que.  It was fairly packed on Monday, not just expats, but all others needing 90 day reports from outside of the 4 countries which must go elsewhere.

I enjoy a little field trip every three month to visit immigration for the 90 day thing, and then have a nice lunch with the family at som good restaurant (somewhat missing where I live and work). I tried the web site ages ago and it wasn't working then and it certainly doesn't work now. It takes 5 minutes at the immigration office, no big deal.

And, by the way, a visa is something that is put in your passport that allows you to enter the country within a certain time period, stated in the visa stamp. When you enter the country the visa is used already, the IMO puts a new stamp in the passport that is a permit to stay a limited time and it is up to the IMO how long that is. You can get a multiple entry visa that allow you to enter the country multiple times on the same visa, usually given to people working, and can last for the time the person work permit lasts. Still, when entering the country on such a visa, it is up to the IMO to stamp how long you are permitted to stay.
