90 day report without a permanent fixed residence

I'm not sure what the OP has regarding his permission of stay. Perhaps annual extension? Anyway my question...I thought he was required to do first extension in person or via mail at the immigration office where he obtained his extension?

Hence the question on what Visa type he entered Thailand.

- If he entered VisaExempt or on a 60-day Tourist Visa, he would have had to extend his permission to stay already and normally the Imm Office would require a TM-30 notification issued by the Hotel/Guesthouse he is staying;

- If he entered on an STV or 90-day Non Imm O Visa, the 90-day report would approx coincide with his application for an extension of stay (which would also require a TM-30 to be filed, but in that case the Imm Office might want to see a longer-term commitment than simply the Hotel-issued TM-30);

- if he entered on a 1-year Non Imm O-A Visa, he would have no need to apply yet for an extension, but he definitely would have to do the 90-day report (and in order to do that a TM-30 needs to be filed prior confirming the place where he will be staying long-term).

>> I was in that last case.  So I registered the house of my girlfriend where I was staying on the IO TM-30 website (and did that on her behalf).  Once confirmed (took 1-2 days) I then did sent a TM-30 on-line (once again on her behalf) that I - a foreigner - was staying at her premisses, and took a screenshot from that notification uploaded in the IO TM-30 database. 

After approx 90 days continually in Thailand I then visited my local Imm Office to do my very first 90-day report (first one has to be done in person).  Imm Officer asked about the TM-30 and I did show him the screenshot of having done that.  No problem, and 90-day report approved.  Since that first one I have been doing my 90 day reports on-line ever since (as my Imm Office is more than 1 hour drive from where I live).

Note: Having my girlfriend's house registered on the IO TM-30 website also allows to file the required TM-30 of any foreign guests staying over here.  There is no need for them me doing that (except when they would want to extend their permission to stay at my local IO), but it is required by Thai law and my girlfriend could be fined for not notifying local IO of a foreigner staying there.

According to some of his previous posts in a different topic, he entered on an Elite Visa back in December.

Doesn't the PE company provide service to do 90 day address reports for their customers?

In Bangkok I believe they should, in other Provinces, no.

If he's still in Bangkok then he should contact them.

The point is not so much about him doing a 90-day report, but whether the Imm Office where he would be doing that first one in person, would accept it without him having a 'permanent address for Immigration purposes'.

That will depend on the immigration officer.

I did my first ever last August in person at MTT. I took along lease etc etc. Even had my rental receipts. I did not have a TM30.

The io basically wanted nothing. He looked at my TM47 and said do you live this condo. I replied yes. He then slid my 90 report slip to me. Yes that's only one experience but accurate. 

My guess is that if the OP has his hotel send a TM30 (also ask for them to print copy) then he will be 100% right to go.

There is no such thing as a "permanent address for Immigration purposes", the TM30 done by the hotel is as good as any other.

It also has nothing to do with what kind of visa he used to enter Thailand.

You are mistaken...

If you have done a one-year extension of your permission to stay, there should be no problem doing a 90-day report through the same office where you did your extension and using the same address you used at that time. At most offices, you can do this by mail if the online system is not working.

 

The difficulty usually arises when you want to apply for the one-year extension. Most offices dislike people who do not have proof of a long term rental agreement or other (semi-)permanent address.

Gordon,

 

Not telling us something? 

 

Let's keep it simple. Report in your district.  The same people with the same cameras and security, and the same guy at the same office, where you had your 1 year extension. 

 

You want to make more problems for yourself and/or others?

 

You will need you Tambien Baan, sooner than later....

That is, indeed, important context. I would normally suggest doing a 90-day report using the address specified when entering the country (i.e. where you said you were going to be staying after quarantine) at whatever immigration office services that area. If you never, in fact, stayed at all at that address, try using the first address where you actually stayed, at the appropriate immigration office, but that might be queried.

And obviously the address must be in the same province as the Imm Office where you will be doing that very first 90-day report..

If I'm mistaken we would see topics now and then where people who stay in hotels have problems to do a 90 day report, that we don't see such reports suggests that probably you are mistaken.

 

I wonder why multiple people here recommend to report a fake address (Which would be illegal. No i don't think anybody would be prosecuted for it), if there is really no problem to do it the correct way (get a printout of the TM30 from the hotel, take it to the IO and do the 90 day report)
