It's 2019-(on my last visit to chaeng wattana for a 90 day check) I asked the woman, why does the online usually not work.  She tried to explain it couldn't be less then 2 weeks from due date or more than 1 month.  So set a reminder to do it online this week(my next date coming up in 3 weeks.  I have tried ALL WEEK and keep getting an extranet message that says contact immigration.  ITS BEEN 4 YEARS AND IT STILL ISN'T WORKING)  I have been here for 10 years and have only been able to do it ONLINE once!

I believe the time limit is between 15 and 7 days before due date. 

Applicants can submit this online application within 15 days but not less than 7 days before the due date of notification.

It is a bit hit and miss at some offices.

Out of my last 6 90 day reports I tried to do online , only Two ( this includes my last one ) have been dealt with.

The other Four , totally ignored.

I have a few fundamental questions about online reporting. My apologies if it was addressed already. In the past doing 90 reporting I always went in person and received a stamp telling me when to next do my reporting and for verification purposes at hotels etc. If I were to report online obviously there would be no stamp:

1. Are you supposed to print something and keep that with you as proof you are in visa compliance for hotels, police and the like?

2. If you successfully report online does the system tell you when the next due date is? (Day count can be tricky)

3. If you report 90 day online how often are you still required to go to immigration in person (is it yearly?) and do you need to bring receipts of everytime you reported yourself online since you last visited in person?

1. Yes there is a receipt with the barcode and next reporting date you can print off.

2. See 1) 

3) Depends what you need. The only obligatory requirement is extension renewal, but that may force TM30 reporting requirements. I have never been asked of the 90 day reporting and throw the old receipts away.

 In my experience recently the next reporting day is 90 days from the date the on-line report was processed. If you report 15 days before your due date and it is processed quickly then your next reporting date will be only 75 days from the last one.

Correct, I have done as per now 11 online reports, between 78 en 75 days after the previous one.

 

I keep the approval in my " Drive ", only print it out when I have to go to Immigration.

Well I was given one possible explanation for the on line 90 day reporting to fail.

It's a partial system with restricted access. New applicants, recent arrivals are entered into database A. This database allows access to apply. Other applicants that have been in country long term are in a separate database or have restricted access to protect the system from hacking.

It's pretty typical of a data entry system that has been cobbed together piecemeal and is not yet fully implemented.

As a comparison, take a patient database in a hospital. Admitting can make a new entry but the rest of the terminals can't. Additions to entries are further restricted as they have become protected medical records. Admitting cannot access the extended database or alter it in any way. But they can open a new record on the same patient which gets parented to the initial DB entry. A hierarchical system.

It appears that immigration is slowly moving towards a full system, but if some of you will recall, the initial on line reporting was restricted to Microsoft Internet Explorer. It was not a robust multi-platform DB. And it appears immigration is still trying to piecemeal that SQL DB together. This would explain why some locales or persons can access and renew why others can't.

I usually print it out and staple it into my passport. I also keep a copy of it on my phone together with copies of relevant passport pages. I have not yet had occasion to test if the MiB will accept this in lieu of the original passport.

Some officers might, others not.

 

But the officer who might or not accept it, may act differently with another person.

 

So a forum now is a place where one can relate his own experience, at a certain moment and location;

with no guarantee at all it will be the same for someone else, even not sure the same officer will have the same reaction next time you are confronted with him. 

 

There are now different topics where the o.p. let know his experience, immediately followed by many posters claiming : " wrong/false, I... " as if their experience is the only correct one.

I live in BKK, filed my 90day report online at noon today

was approved when I checked at 8pm

I came back from Burma at Tachilek in January

stayed in same Pattaya Hotel 5 times this year, they file TM 30s for me

I never ever filed a TM 30 in BKK

So as long as you don't have to go to Chaengwattana, it seems OK

Curious what happens, when my retirement extension comes up in December

I guess a hardcore quick fix would be to check into a hotel every time before going to immigration. You should be all TM30'd up then, if they bothered to submit it.
