That's interesting. They really should just roll it out to all foreigners with a valid long term visa. Works in every other country.

It seems perfectly reasonable that a competent government would want to keep tabs on non-citizen alliens who are residing within their borders, either for work, school, or retirement. (If my country did this, it might not be overrun with 30 million undocumented people all around the country doing who knows what). If you don't want to be treated like a resident alien...don't be one.

It seems to me that the reason they ask for the same forms to be filled out several times is simply this; it's their trap for people who may be making stuff up. I doubt they would be identical each time. But if that is what this is, it's a simple trap to circumvent for anyone with an IQ above 80...

Agree. If the government was competent however, there is a much more efficient way of doing this. The answer is out there if they care to look.

I should get into the desk manufacturing business. They will need more desks to place new piles of paper on now. ;-)

I always just thought it was an employment program.

In a recent development, the junta has ordered that all foreigners are to be rounded up, and the letter "F" placed on their foreheads to facilitate easy identification by authorities.

Just waiting to be advised where I need to report to collect my yellow star and to have my allocated number tattooed onto my inner arm. Land of Smiles? Really? 

 

We better tattoo all the details on our backs so they can just make a picture of it.

 

I don't mind if they try to find criminals or others who don't obey their rules but if you do nothing wrong they should respect us.

The police nust take care the Thai people. Many forener come to Thailand and make trouble. eg. Cut the body and put in the river and the freezer. do the bombs, kill the Thai with car and motorbike, steal the ATM, fighting the Thai people, killing the thai peple, get the drink and not pay, stay long time but not have the visa and more.
Everyday police have the problem. Many many problem because the forener have in Thailand. And crazy people.
So they must check the forener.


I don't disagree with you but I'd hazard a guess at least 95% of crimes committed in Thailand are by thais. Anyway, if they need to keep tabs on foreigners there is a much more efficient solution for both foreigners and immigration if they would just look to their neighbors.

There is already a ton of cyber-ink spilled on the Thai Visa forum since I broke the news on the forum about this form six months ago  (I still chuckle at UbonJoe's post:  "Looks like nonsense to me. There is no new form.").  Ah yes, some are still in denial.  

However, on several threads at TV, I picked up a lot of good suggestions on how to tactfully fill in the form, satisfying both my need for privacy and immigration's need to have the form submitted.  I did so, just last week for the first time, and the officer processing me hardly glanced at it before chucking it in my file.  

A lot of helpful information here.   I would suggest to read up, and fly over this little hurdle without ruffling your feathers.

"Lot of helpful information here" Where is "here" please...?

Sorry to be ambiguous.  I meant "here on ThaiVisa."   

In addition to the link in my post, just a few of the many threads here on TV on this topic....

 

 

 

Plus the very good article by Richard Barrow:
http://www.richardbarrow.com/2016/06/foreign-national-information-form-in-thailand/

 

If you still want more, Google is your best friend.  :wai:  "foreigner information form thailand" (without the quotation marks).
