90 Day Reporting - Comments and Experiences 2016

Recommended Posts

I have been reporting my 90 day by post for 2 years .Never had more than a 4 business day turn around.

I posted the last 90 day report on December 24 expecting with the New Year holidays there could be a delay.

Today, January 8, I still had not received my receipt.So drove into the re furbished Airport Office arriving at 11.30 am, plenty of parking, very few people

Waa directed to a desk which had an officer, who has worked there for long time, and a girl sitting on the computer.

He chose to speak to my wife in Thai and I know he speaks English as we have talked before.

The story went like this, they will no longer accept reports by postal mail you have to do it online or go to Promenada,because they dont

have enough staff. The girl went through a small pile of reports and mine was there attached to the return registered envelope.She processed it immediatly

Now the clincher he told my wife I was lucky I could have been fined 4,000 baht for late report if I hadn't come in ,hang on I still had 9 days, the girl

had no more than 20 reports to process. His parting shot was "tell your husband there is no more corruption in Immigration" not sure what that had to do

with my visit. So you have been warned folks that is my experince today.So online or go to Promenada as at todays date,it well could change again.

Mods please move this post if you think it should be somewhere else.

same thing happened to me on Monday report not come back,went to airport office spoke to elderly officer,who your right would only speak to my missus,told me or her,to go home as 90 registered,must admit last time I spoke to this guy he was jovial and very helpful,love to no who has upset him,as he was a good friend for farang,and yes he told me no more mail,go office.ps report come in post Tuesday,16days it took.

Last two 90 day reports were quick and efficient at Jomtien Immigration office. Polite staff. Can't fault them since the place has been re-organized.

use to be the same at chiang mai office to a certain degree,until they turned bandit on there customers,or vice versu

They have won with the "retirement visas" they are stopping mail in?

Online 90 days will be the next to go as the local office gives approval or not I believe? This is a situation out of hand that it appears nobody can/ will do anything about.

My last mail in did not arrive in a reasonable time,I also went in to ask what was happening, same long term officer who had told me months ago that mail in was no longer accepted and I should go to Prom, things changed after

Nancy's efforts and it was acceptable and subsequent mail in's turned around in a few days. Anyway, the officer checked my "submission" noted that it had been received,

I cannot say what I was asked to do before I received my printed receipt, this was end of November.

This seems rather strange as we have one post by Connda who posted his 90 day report on the 24 dec. and received his confirmed slip on the 5 jan. and Sparkles who posted his the same day and did not and then was told no more 90 day by post. So is this of cover up of a slip of an immigration officer or a mistake by the poster

Posted mine on Dec 18/15 and they received it on the 21st. Just received my receipt back in the mail today Jan 8/16 exactly 3 weeks after mailing. I see rumors on here that the mailing has been cancelled can someone please confirm this positively?

Thanks

Well I can only tell you as it happened, my experience was 11.30am today.No mistake trust me. You should not be surprised things change very quickly here.

There was no point im me arguing the logic that to bring it in, or post it, takes exactly the same time for the girl to process it on the computer.

Expect more reports in coming days as I know one person who is still awaiting his mail in to return .He posted 3 days after me.

I always seem to be unlucky with my 90 day report at the immigration Promenada.

The 1st time I went at 1 m... was told all the numbers had been used up.

2nd time (the next day) went really early... still did not get seen till gone 3 pm.

Yesterday I went at 7.45 am.. the 90 day line was really long... I knew I would have not got a number or at best not got seen till the afternoon... I did not want to wait in that boring place all day...

So I went in the visa service shop thing next door and the girl got my 90 day in less than 10 minutes.. for only 300 baht.

In the old place in the city I used to get the 90 day really quickly and never had any problems. I can't drive as I am partially blind and have to rely on friends to take me there.... so next time I am going to try the on line reporting.

My 90day is coming up, any updates on mail in situation ?

As reported in other threads, the 90 day mail-in service got a little behind during the holidays and the staff processing them at the airport doesn't take kindly to people coming in person to inquire about the status of their report. But, they are still accepting 90 day reports by post. Go ahead and mail yours, but definitely do it 15 days ahead of the due date. Don't try to cut it too close.

For your 300 baht you could have had a nice breakfast at Rim Ping's "Bistro" and seen a movie. I'd rather do that than give the money to G4T. Did you ask yourself how it is that they can jump the queue to get your report done in 10 minutes and what you're doing by supporting that?

Obviously he didn't. He asked him self do I want to sit here all day long or just pay 300 baht and be on my way. He decided that he did not want to sit there all day long so he just paid 300 baht and was on his way. In the process he helped speed up the line for those who want to sit there all day.

I strongly suspect he is a bit like me. He didn't come to Thailand to straighten it out just to retire.

Don't you love Thai visa. One poster says they are no longer taking mail in 90 day reports by mail and it goes viral. The fact is they are still taking them in.

Sorry for your sight problems ,maybe get a friend to help you with doing it for the first time online as it doesnt work for some of us.

You now know the reason that you have to wait hours if you queue to process it at no cost.

You mention only 300 baht for less than 10 minutes "work" is ok ,that's a days wages for many Thais.
