The "Muang Thong Thani" 90 day report process has been detailed previously on this forum but as the online reporting system is currently unavailable, I thought a fresh view might be helpful to those doing it for the first time.  The posted hours of MTT Immigration are 08:30-16:30, Monday-Friday.  Last queue number issued at 15:30.

 

Finding the Immigration location can be a bit of a challenge.  I suggest the use of Google Maps.  Aim for the IMPACT exhibition hall and if you pass with the hall on your right side, about 500m. beyond it is a right turn with a small sign indicating "Immigration". After making the turn, go straight ahead, into a  fenced compound with a small guard shack.  The building for the 90 day reporting will be on your left, probably with a bunch of taxis parked nearby.

 

Entering the ground floor lobby, there is a temperature check and you will be directed to a stairway going upstairs to the 2nd floor. (There is a copy/snack shop in the lobby if you need water)

When you get to the 2nd floor, you will encounter several lines of people.  Ignore those lines and look for the large room marked "Queue Number"

If you don't already have your "TM-47" application, go to the front desk and there is a tray of them.  Just take one and fill it out before getting into the line.  

When I arrived on Friday, March 5 at 1:15 pm, the line was long and the waiting area full.  I waited in the line and they checked my form.  They asked for the receipt of my previous 90 day report but when I said I had done it online, they just wrote "Online" on my application.; nothing more asked for.  I received queue #509;  numbers starting with #320 were just being called in groups of 10.

 

It was clearly going to be a long wait so I went downstairs and got a bottle of water.  The waiting area is pretty hot but I found the upper level had a very good breeze and was much more comfortable.

They seemed to be calling groups of 10 about every 10 minutes but as the afternoon progressed, they began calling groups a lot more quickly.  My group was finally called at 3:50pm. You are lined up in numerical order and marched to a hallway where you wait in line at a room with multiple desks.  As each desk becomes available, you are waved to it.  

I gave the officer my Passport and TM47.  She noted that my visa renewal was due the end of the month and stamped me through.  Took about 2 minutes.

All in all: three hours.

There were numerous taxis waiting outside the door for those wanting one.  There were also Moto Taxis for those wanting transport within MTT. 

Just for reference, I took a taxi to MTT from Phra Khanong using various highways.  Fare was B240 + about B90 tolls.  Return was close to the same.

Thats a lot easier than 200 baht to an agent!

I considered using an agent but I didn't know of any in my area and had no idea what they charged.  I was 2 days past my due date so I didn't want to take any chances.  I may try an agent next time if online reporting is still unavailable.  

Any recommendations?

First up thanks for the report. I did mine January 27 at MTT in person as even though online site was up I just couldn't lodge report.

I don't have any confidence in the system. 

If anyone has agent recommendations that would be great.

Id say it would cost more than 200 baht in transport and drinks/ snacks and time wasted etc .

Might as well share my 90 day reporting experience at Prachinburi Immigration. After having a pleasant lunch at the Robinson Lifestyle center in Prachinburi, I drove to the immigration office, which is easily found on google maps. I had no appointment, I entered a completely empty office (A Covid-19 era Thursday afternoon about 1:30), filled in the form, gave it to the officer together with my passport, waited 2 minutes and then got it back and left:)

They used to do it without a form at Prachinburi too, but then all the staff changed and now they require me to fill the form. The form is really not used for anything, they have all the info in the database and print the receipt from there anyway. It seems all the staff in local immigration offices get rotated every three years or so.

I  booked an appointment online for this coming Wednesday but didn't get a confirmation email. Should I expect one? I just clicked on “search your appointment”, filled the box, as prompted, with my passport number, clicked again, got the appointment details all right and printed that page: is that valid?

I made an appointment online and spent 20 minutes inside the building, all done.

Do you just go to the front of the queue and show your online appointment?

This is for downstairs and upstairs.

When I go to the immigration site to make appointment, there are two pages, the first for personal information, the second for the visa and appointment. But on the 2nd page there is only a field for date of appointment.  There is no field for time.  Am I missing something?
