Or they could just issue an ID card like every other country with a somewhat functioning and competent bureaucracy, couldn't they?

I wonder what that foreigner who wrote a letter about "foreigners stop complaining or leave" thinks about this.

They could just shackle a GPS ankle band on us all, problem solved, voila! Oh... sorry that idea has already been presented by some minister and is under consideration.....or was that the one with the SIM cards?

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.

 

As someone already mentioned, it may be to do with different departments acting out of synch.

 

I think we could explain it partly by the hierarchical nature of their society along with greng-jai. They dare not upgrade to a cracked Windows 95 yet for fear of upsetting some old toad that takes comfort in piles of paper and pretty, coloured-in stamps.

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.

 

"They" and/or some of them don't particularly respect us (for whatever reasons) any other time so why even consider such a strange idea?

i would suggest that the police start at Pattaya first and when they have sorted the good guys in bad guys out, then perhaps they can start somewhere else, i think they would be a few years sorting Pattaya out.

In a section titled ‘Personal Appearance’ the form also asks for details of height, weight, skin colour, hair colour and details of any scars.

 

 

If I gain/lose weight or yield to father time and shave my head completely bald after I fill out the aforementioned form, will I get fined 4K BHT?

Next time when you get immigration stamps, you might have to point at Google link where you stay.

 

But don't point the Issan buffalo hut which you will take care with your girl friend. That is only for tourist promotion. :stoner:

One would think that all could be easily recorded once and that's it. Obviously the database is not maintained well. 

I have no issue with any information given to the authorities, except income maybe. 

Luckily I am not subject to 90 day reporting, as My work requires me to leave country regularly. But most of the info is actually given when applying for visa anyway.

Guess they're updating their database, and you're only asked if there's any changes next time you make your immigration report.

Did my 90 day two days ago in Khon Kaen and no extra form. Filled out the 90 day form ahead of time, attached passport photo, visa photo, embarkation card photo (which weren't even look at) signed the form and out in two minutes

Did my 90 day last week in Khon Kaen (as well as visa extension and re-entry permit).

Foreigner Information Form required.  

In and out in one hour (I was first in line). 

All foreigners are not created equal, evidently.   :whistling:

I didnt realise we have to fill it out each time we do 90 day, I had just done it last month for Visa renewal, then told it must be done again this month for 90 day.

Is this being done for all the Burmese/Cambodian/Chinese working/living here????
If so, it will take them 10 years to complete then the info will be out of date.

Perhaps, it's Thailand's equivalent of the Doomsday Book (from the great survey of 11th century England)?

Thai cops making home visits to fill ‘invasive’ immigration forms, foreigners say

By Asian Correspondent Staff 

 

THREE foreigners living in Thailand have complained of receiving visits by policemen asking them to furnish personal details, purportedly as part of a controversial immigration policy mooted by the authorities for national security reasons.

 

According to Thaivisa.com, the three foreigners residing in the northern province of Chiang Mai were visited at home by the uniformed officials who asked them to provide details like their monthly income, height, weight, and even skin color.

 

The three, said Thaivisa, wrote about the visits and posted their accounts in the website forum. They claimed that they were asked to provide the details in the ‘Personal Information’ form from the ‘Transnational Crime Coordination Unit Region 5 (TCCU R5).
