Online 90-day reports now possible in Phuket

What the digitally-produced report looks like.

PHUKET: -- It has been confirmed that, as of April 1, foreigners living or staying long-term in Phuket can do a 90-day report online to Immigration.

When the system was originally launched, it could be used only by those in Bangkok. The system is now available countrywide.

So far, the online system can be used only with the Internet Explorer browser.

Speaking with The Phuket News today, Phuket Immigration Superintendent, Pol Col Sanchai Chokkajaykij said, “The online system has officially been in use since April 1, giving more channels for foreigners to submit their 90-day report to Immigration, and it is more convenient.”

However, Col Sanchai warned that online reporting can be done only in advance, between eight and 15 days before the due date.

Those who miss this window must report to Immigration in person. Anyone reporting more than seven days late will be fined B2,000.

The online process appears to be relatively straightforward:

Go to the website.

Select English language (unless you can read Thai).

Click on the "Notification of staying over 90 days" tab on the left of the page.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click where it says ʻnotification of staying in the Kingdom over 90 days via Internet̕. This will open a new page with an explanation of the online process.

Once you have read the information select, ʻI have read and fully understand the above terms and agree to accept them̕, and click “Accept̕. You will then be taken to Part 1 of the application process.

Complete the fields as require, enter the CAPTCHA password and click ʻSubmit̕. This will take you to Part 2 of the process.

Again, complete the fields as required and press 'Submit'. This will lead you to Part 3.

Check that all information in Part 3 is correct. If any details are wrong go ‘Back’ and re-input the details. When all is correct, select ‘I have read and fully understand the above terms and agree to accept them’ and click ‘Accept’.

You are now at the acknowledgement page. Make a note of your reference number or print the PDF confirmation.

After five days you can go back to the website and click again on the "Notification of staying over 90 days" tab and check on your application status using either your reference number or passport details.

Once you see that the status is marked "Approved̕" click on the "view" option next to it. From this you will be able to download and print a PDF of your 90-day report.

This report must be kept in your passport at all times. It shows the next date you are due to make a notification.

Please note:

The website states, "Failure to provide correct information or failure to provide all information required for the online application form may affect your chances of applying for an online 90-day report."

Col Sanchai said that anyone leaving information out or including incorrect information (including typing mistakes) will have to apply in person, but will be allowed to apply online on the next occasion.

He denied an online report that anyone arriving at Immigration more than seven days after the due date will be barred from using the online system, though they will be fined.

How can its website be trusted since its url is not https?

Not necessary to have https in front to be secure, though not 100% clear how secure.. I just checked using SSL Certificate Verify.

extranet.immigration.go.th resolves to 118.174.40.243 Server Type: Oracle-Application-Server-10g/10.1.3.5.0 Oracle-HTTP-Server The certificate will expire in 1409 days. A reminder is already set up. Update The hostname (extranet.immigration.go.th) is correctly listed in the certificate. The certificate is self-signed. Users will receive a warning when accessing this site unless the certificate is manually added as a trusted certificate to their web browser. You can fix this error by buying a trusted SSL certificate certificate_bad_server.pngCommon name: extranet.immigration.go.th

Organization: Immigration Bureau

Location: Sathorn, Bangkok, TH

Valid from March 4, 2015 to March 3, 2019

Even the connection is still not encrypted - how can expat's data entry transmission be secured and protected against the hackers?

Usual paranoia about security -- nothing you enter on the reporting form is so sensitive. Take a look at the way they recycled passport copies :)

I hope they get the other browsers working soon. Stone age internet at it's worst -- even I could make a simple system that'd work just fine and interface with their database.

True, but you have a file on the Immigration Computer Network anyways.

If you check online banking, they encode their data before it is sent over the internet. I would ask if the Immigration Reporting page is encoded as well. Probably is fairly safe. Anyways, it is more likely that their database is targeted already...especially by ....(initials of any government agency)

Another heads up....what is stopping the cleaning lady or garbage man (at the immigration office) from selling trash cans full of crumpled up copies/completed forms....with your data on it. I would just show up before the garbage truck, and throw a bag or two in the back of my pickup. Plenty data there. No documents in the trash is much better...so I would do it online.

Some people are very lucky... I applied online on 8 April for a 90-day Notification which was due to expire on 20 April and my "Confirmation" is still "PENDING".

It got to the expiration date so I went to Phitsanulok Immigration who could shed no light on why I was still PENDING. They said, "new system, no know!!!".

Does anybody have the Helpline contact details, please? The first number on the online documentation is "disconnected" and the second is useless.

Thanks
