If you have a Thai visa for a year, then you have you notify immigration of your location every 90 days. This 90 day reporting can be done in person, online or by post. This post is a step by step guide as to how to report by post.
The online immigration portal has been open since April 2015, and allows 90 day reporting up to 15 days in advance of the reporting date on your last receipt. Unfortunately though, many find they cannot use this system. The first tip is that it only works with one browser, internet explorer. You enter your details as shown on the receipt. After completing the first page and going to continue, a message pops up stating for you to contact your local office. You can check whether your details will work or not ahead of the 15 days by trying your details, if you get the pop up telling you to contact immigration, then it probably won’t work for you! If not, you don’t have to go to immigration, you can just post the following and get your new 90 report receipt returned by post.
- Completed TM47 form
- Original last receipt of notification (keep a copy for yourself)
- copy of passport photo page
- copy of original visa page
- copy of page with last entry stamp
- copy of departure card
- return envelope with 10 baht stamp on
Sign all copies to certify them. The documents need to arrive at the immigration at least 15 days prior to the date on your last receipt of notification. You need to go to a post office (not an agent) and use the EMS service which takes 24 hrs. Retain the EMS receipt as proof of postage otherwise you could end up with a 2000 baht fine if you’re late with your 90 day reporting.
You will receive your receipt back via post, if it goes past your reporting date maybe contact the local office to check. All these details are on the Thai immigration 90 day reporting page, although the addresses, annoyingly, are not. It simply says to post to the immigration office in your area, although you are probably best calling and checking with them first!
