How's anyone managed to escape the error that comes up while registering on the app? I've tried it few times...on iOS - not sure if it makes any difference. Anyone managed to use it on iOS without the error when registering?

It finally worked for me on Android. Seems the app was recently updated. Now the error messages are in English. I filled out all the fields and clicked Register and got an generic error back. Fortunately, with this new app the fields stay filled in, so I just kept re-clicking Register. After a dozen or so tries it gave a different error, password needs a letter and a number. So with a good password I finally got the Register to work. Took about a week for the activation email to arrive. Now I'm registered and awaiting my next due date for 90 day report to try the app out.

Fellas,

 

Need your advice. For the first time I tried to submit my TM47 online and it was rejected with the following comment from the immigration officer: กก.3

 

P.S.: I did all my TM30 reporting correctly and renewed my visa for another year in July.. so I cannot think of anything I have done wrong.

 

Do you have any idea what this could possibly mean?

 

I checked the form three times before I submitted it; all personal information are correct, however, the only thing I wasn't sure was the checkbox which mentioned something like "special service" - I do not recall its exact wording. My visa was issued at One Stop Service Center in Chamchuree Square. I am not sure if this would need me to tick the "special service" box!?

 

Anyhow, I can no longer resubmit through the online system as I have gone beyond the allotted time frame for online submissions. I had one colleague in my office call the number mentioned on the TM47 form, however, no one picked up the phone (and we called several times throughout the day).

 

This is all very disappointing. 

 

With Regards,

Sambora

I suspect your report was sent to the wrong office.

I assume you got email informing you that it was not approved or did it say it was rejected.

Actually, both! When searching for past submissions in the "check the status of your application", then the overview says "not approved". However, when opening the specific form, then it says "rejected" in the top right hand corner.

 

So you guess that it was sent to the wrong office because I did not check the "special service" checkbox?

If the details are at all changed will it definitely be rejected?

 

Mine will only require a change in the apartment number, but will be the same building. I just want to plan ahead for the hike to Chaeng Wattana. I suppose it must do because presumably a 'change of address' form will also need to be filled even if it is the same building.

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 was correct. I just got my mailed in 90 back as rejected referring me to the local Imm office. So they only have regional databases. If you aren't in the Bkk DB, whether on line or mail in, you will get rejected. Very likely the on line and the mail in DBs aren't shared either.

I have been successfully using the on-line system to submit my 90 day report for over two years. However, my passport expires next June (the same month as my extension renewal) so I guess my information contained on the database will then be "out of date" and I shall not be able to continue to report on-line (unless things change or I leave the country). Has anyone had any experience of this?

You will not be able to do one after you get a new passport until you leave and re-enter the country.

The database the system checks after you complete page 1 is from your most recent entry the country which means your new passport number will not be in it.

I have the same problem and was told by immigration to do a border hop to get a new entry if I wanted to do online reporting.

This is yet another major flaw in immigration procedures. It's a database, just add the bloody entry as in the old TM6. Same with changing visa classes etc. Makes absolutely no sense to leave the country for something so trivial.

AFAIK, this anomaly still exists, and if affects the ability to file a 90-day report online (web or app). It also affects one's ability to get through the online TM8 appointment booking system.

 

I got a new passport recently, officially transferred the stamps at CW and was unable to use the 90-day online systems, new PP disconnected from exisitng TM6, I guess?

 

I have no idea why Immigration cannot realign the new passport with the current TM6? But suspect some sort of old code/disparate system issue?

 

I did my 90-day report in person yesterday at CW - also got my new multi-reentry permit. AFAIK, the only way to get back to being able to use the 90 day online system is to exit and reenter the country. For me, this is not worth a special trip as I have two trips coming up over the 3 ~ 5 months.

IMHO , this is up there with the doing of the one year extension not resetting your 90 day clock.

Immigration cannot access the database the system checks when you complete page one of online reporting.

It is automatically generated when you do an entry to the country. The only way for it to be updated is to do a new entry.

Surely the updating of the database is effected by the Immigration Officer at the point of entry. Yet Immigration cannot access the database?

 

Sounds like a bit of a lash up to me.

The officer enters the info in the system they use. As soon as the entries are completed the relevant info is transferred to the online reporting database. Once the info is transferred it is not possible for it to be changed.

It's very likely a case of missing functionality to manually insert TM6 entries, or inland IOs don't have the permissions to do them. I haven't seen an actual TM6 entry in their PC, but I suspect it's just the TM6 number and your passport number bound together with the timestamp. I haven't seen the IO writing much in at the keyboard when entering. A no brainer to add that to the system if it's missing.
