I have never been able to use the online 90 day report. It always stops at the first page, asks for the capcha then tells me to contact the immigration office.

Can somebody clue me here?

Have you made last entry within the last 6 or so years?  Has your passport recently changed?  Do you use the drop down menu selections?  You use IE or supported browser?  Do you only fill out required fields and make sure all spelling is correct (as reported in person)?  I can not use myself as last entry was too long ago so can not offer more advise then above, which have seen mentioned.

Last entry over 15 years ago. No change in passport in the past 9 years. I use the drop downs and have rechecked them multiple times for accuracy. I have tried both IE and Firefox. I have checked every last detail repeatedly for accuracy and spelling. I just tried again 5 more times.

I click Submit I get a blank grey page with a box that says "For further information regarding The 90-day Notification Report Service, please contact the Immigration Branch Office in your residence area"

You can not use online system until you make a new entry into Thailand.  The database does not extend back that far and there is no way to update without a new entry into the country.  Same as for me.  I use mail reporting now.

That explains things. Of course us old timers get lowest priority. I wonder why that never occurred to me. 🙄

After a disastrous problem with the EMS I'm not about to mail my passport. But on the bright side, with Chiang Mai Imm now operating so promptly it's a pleasant early AM drive, grab a cuppa on the way, park in an empty parking lot, kick it back with a book in the waiting room opened by 6:30, and usually well before 7:30 I'm covered and out of there.

You don't need to mail the original passport, copies are enough. I did so last month and it was returned to me approved within a week, with a handwritten note to add TM30 copy and departure card copy next time. 

I did it by mail because after several years of successful online reports I could no longer do it due to having received a new passport.

One golden rule regarding immigration issues: Verify what immigration officers tell you.

I was told that I had to mail my passport in. Mandatory, no exceptions.

 

So I have to include a copy of every page of my passport that gives a chronology of my presence here? The last time I went in for my 90 the officers became a little peeved I had the usual 4 copies of my passport. Only two were required now. And now I forgot which two were required. Front page and most recent? But if I mail it in, we are talking 10-15 pages?

 

PS I rather liked the little clerical mis-stamping on one of my yearly report ins. It granted me 900 years extension.

 

 

PPS Comedy: In front of me in line at immigration. An irritable European farang was explaining he couldn't produce his old passport as it had been destroyed in a washing machine. The elderly highly experienced immigration officer, a blank expression on her face, shifted her eyes from him momentarily to look me in the eyes. Just one split second glance, two cops exchanging an unsaid in that glance: BULLFEATHERS. (Passports aren't paper. They and the ink used on them is waterproof. If it really had been destroyed, it was bogus).

Normally they need the data page, last visa/entry stamp or entry referring to them, the current permitted to stay stamp and departure card copies plus previous TM47 receipt and new TM47 application with return stamped envelope.  Send registered or EMS as tracking needed if you do not get back to prove you sent and was received.

It would be great if one could reset one's new passport details with Immigration, in-country by making a visit in person, thus allowing use of the on-line reporting system(s).

 

Having the leave and re-enter the country seems like a strange way to encourage use of modern reporting technologies?

Indeed, this should be possible as part of the process of getting one's stamps transferred from old to new passports, I would have thought. But, there again, this is Thailand, lest we forget.

Well after many years of trying to do the 90 day report online and failing each time, I installed the Immigration Services android app. I filled out the information yesterday and today amazingly found my 90 day notification was approved! Amazing! I am very glad I didn't need to go to CW Bangkok and waste my morning doing this 90 day report.

 

A few thoughts on the process:

It was a one day turnaround time. I was impressed.

I found no way to actually download the PDF documents from the Immigration App to my device.

I had to perform a screenshot of the PDF file and use that for documentation and printing.

My name on the 90 day report receipt shows as (First, Last, Middle) which is strange as it was correct order (First, Middle, Last) on the application form.

"Nationality" is misspelled on the 90 day receipt as "Nationalit". Not a big deal but should have been caught.

 

Has anyone figured out how to download the PDF from the app to the device? This would be very useful.

does anyone have the address to apply by mail.. for 90 day extention

A 90 day report is not an extension.

Which immigration office are you wanting to mail your 90 day report to?

When I try to send the online form for 90 days report I end up on a blank page... the thing is not working. Is there an app to do it ?

The blank page is due to a pop up message being blocked. The message you cannot see means your record could not be found.

There is a app. For android it is here. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=th.go.immigration.immeService&hl=en

Same name for IOS on Itunes or whatever.

I downloaded the app but haven't received the link to confirm my email.

 

My record could not be found ? What I'm doing wrong ??
