90 day Enforcement
Upon getting my new Visa and Work Permit this week I noticed a new glossy form stapled into my passport reminding me of the 90 day notification.
I assume all Farang know this although a friend of mine did get caught a few months ago.
The fine for not re-registering each 90 days is now 5,000 baht plus 200 Baht per day over 90 days!!
90 day reporting – by post!
When the Immigration Bureau moved from Suan Phlu the ‘90 day Reporting’ of one’s address required by law went from a short stroll down the road to a two hour road trip to the middle of nowhere and two expensive taxis! However it is now a trip to the post office (coincidentally next door to the old Immigration Bureau!).
Many 2Bangkok members may be unaware that you can ‘report’ by mail – simply photocopy the picture and all used pages of your passport, photocopy your departure card (TM6), fill in form TM47 from their website and send it to the below address together with the previous 90-Day form and a self addressed 5 Baht stamped envelope. Send it in 7 days ahead by EMS post (31 Baht) and two weeks later all the passport copies are returned (for re-use) together with your new date to report and fresh TM47 form. Simple and easy!
Their address is: 90 DAYS REGISTRATION,
IMMIGRATION DIVISION 1
120 MOO 3, CHAENGWATTANA ROAD,SOI 7,
LAKSI, BANGKOK. 10210
Saves a lot of time and money!
A friends says he received his back with a note that they now require a 10 Baht stamp on the SAE!
