90-day immigration report requires form update

90-day immigration report requires form update

It is now required of foreigners reporting a 90-day stay in Thailand to submit a new TM47 form, which is the standard application form for the period, along with a receipt and a barcode in their passports. With the aim of “refreshing” the 90-day data base, it appears that the Chonburi Immigration Bureau has implemented a new rule. Recently, there have been cases of foreign nationals changing addresses without notifying immigration authorities. In addition to completing a new TM47 form, foreign nationals must provide their passport, a copy of their ID and visa page, and proof of address (such as a lease, yellow book, or recent TM30 receipt). They will receive a fresh receipt to put in their passport.
Separately, foreign nationals returning to Thailand by land or sea are advised once more not to overlook the additional bureaucracy of the TM30 form, which verifies local address. If an expat wants to use some immigration services, such as opening a bank account, renewing a driver’s license, or extending a visa, they must present an updated TM30 receipt (issued since previous admission into Thailand). Foreign nationals with expired TM30 receipts or none at all have been subject to fines in recent times.
