TM.30: Immigration chief tells foreigners: Report where you are and who is staying with you


The acting head of Thai Immigration Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang appears to be stepping up his policy of making sure that all house owners and hoteliers report the whereabouts of foreigners within 24 hours or face fines.

He has also warned foreigners staying longer than three months to make their 90 day reports or face fines.

Thai news site Naew Na - who have become somewhat of a mouthpiece for immigration in recent days - featured the latest stories about officers acting on Sompong or Big Oud's orders.

In Chonburi at Sunset Village Beach resort in Jomtien and at the "1000 Resort" in Phichit immigration found everything to be in order.

But in Roi-Et a house owner was fined.

And in Singburi a house in Moo 13 Mai Dat sub-district was surrounded and the house owner was fined under section 38.

The message from these stories - appearing in Naew Na almost every day recently - is clear:

If you have a foreigner staying in your address it must be reported within 24 hours.

If you are on a long stay visa make sure you report your whereabouts every 90 days.


Over the past year, Thai immigration have started to more strictly enforce its requirement of the reporting of the locations of foreigners staying in Thailand.

The requirement isn’t new and is actually part of the 1979 Immigration Act, covered under section 38, which reads:

“House owners, heads of household, landlords or managers of hotels who accommodate foreign nationals on a temporary basis who stay in the kingdom legally, must notify the local immigration authorities within 24 hours from the time of arrival of the foreign national."

“The notification of residence of foreign nationals is made by the manager of licensed hotels according to the hotel act, owners of guesthouses, mansions, apartments and rented houses using the form TM. 30”.

If you are staying in a hotel, then the hotel will complete the TM.30 on your behalf.

However, if for example you have friends or family staying with you at your home in Thailand you have a responsibility to submit a TM.30 within 24 hours of their arrival so that immigration know your friends are staying at your address.

If you live in a rented property in Thailand, your landlord needs to submit a TM.30 to tell immigration you are living at that address.

Likewise, perhaps you or your wife owns a property in Thailand which is rented out to a foreigner, you also have a responsibility to submit a TM.30 form.

If you live in a house which is in your wife’s name and you are not named on the tabian baan, then your wife is required to submit a TM.30 form telling immigration you live there.

As mentioned, the requirement to submit a TM.30 is not new but it is now being more rigorously enforced.

Failing to complete a TM.30 can result in a fine of up to 2,000 baht.

You can submit the TM.30 form at your local immigration office.

If there is not an immigration in your province, the form can be submitted at your local police station.

The TM.30 can also be submitted online but the system only works for Chrome and Internet Explorer users.

As with many rules and regulations from immigration, the actual requirements may differ from one office to another.

To confirm exactly what is required in your province, contact your local immigration office.

General in English / Thailand Wants to Restrain the World’s Strongest Currency

Thailand Wants to Restrain the World’s Strongest Currency

Thailand’s central bank is fretting over how to cool the world-beating surge in the baht just as the U.S. keeps a watchful eye out for signs of unfair currency policies.

Bank of Thailand officials intensified verbal intervention in the past week, with Senior Director Don Nakornthab saying Wednesday the “worried” monetary authority is mulling how the baht can be restrained. He also flagged the possibility of an interest-rate cut.

The baht has climbed 8.3% against the dollar in the past year, the best performer globally, according to Bloomberg-compiled data. It’s viewed as a safe haven given Thailand’s history of current-account surpluses and near-record foreign reserves.

Thai foreign-exchange reserves are rising toward a record level

The currency’s surge threatens to deepen this year’s sharp slowdown in the export-led economy.

“For now, verbal intervention, physical intervention and closely monitoring non-resident Thai baht accounts” are options for the central bank, but capital controls are unlikely, said Roong Sanguanruang, a market analyst at Bank of Ayudhya Pcl in Bangkok.

Intervention in the foreign-exchange market isn’t as easy as before because of growing U.S. criticism, she also said.

Sliding exports pose a threat to Thai economic expansion

Thailand was listed as a major trading partner in the Treasury Department’s semi-annual foreign-exchange report in May, signaling greater oversight of its currency policy.

The Bank of Thailand has previously rejected allegations of currency manipulation and said it doesn’t seek an unfair advantage in trade.

Don said Wednesday he didn’t know which steps to restrain the currency could be rolled out, while adding that one option may be to ask banks to be stricter on short-term transactions by non-residents.

The baht weakened 0.2% against the dollar as of 11:15 a.m. on Thursday in Bangkok.

The central bank left borrowing costs at 1.75% and cut its economic growth forecasts last month as the U.S.-China trade war dims the nation’s outlook.

Η EgyptAir στο νέο διοικητικό αεροδρόμιο του Καΐρου

Το Υπουργείο Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας της Αιγύπτου ξεκίνησε την πειραματική λειτουργία του αεροδρομίου New Administrative Capital (NAC), την Τρίτη με τη συμμετοχή του υπουργού Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας Younis El-Masry και της υπουργού Τουρισμού Rania Al-Mashat.

Σε συνέντευξη Τύπου, το υπουργείο Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας αποκάλυψε ότι η EgyptAir ολοκλήρωσε τις εγκαταστάσεις της στο νέο αεροδρόμιο, μαζί με τα καταστήματα αφορολόγητων ειδών στις αίθουσες άφιξης και αναχώρησης και έκανε την πρώτη της δοκιμαστική πτήση στο νέο αεροδρόμιο.

Αυτός ο αερολιμένας είναι μεγαλύτερος από τον Διεθνή Αερολιμένα του Καΐρου και αναμένεται να αυξήσει τον τουρισμό μειώνοντας ταυτόχρονα την κυκλοφορία στο Διεθνές Αεροδρόμιο του Καΐρου. Η τοποθεσία του NAC είναι σημαντική επειδή βρίσκεται στο Ανατολικό Κάιρο κοντά στα λιμάνια και τις πόλεις κοντά στο κανάλι του Σουέζ που δεν έχουν εύκολη πρόσβαση στο Διεθνές Αεροδρόμιο του Καΐρου.

Το NAC διευκολύνει την κυκλοφορία σε αυτές τις ζώνες με την ελπίδα ότι θα μετατρέψει την περιοχή σε διεθνή κόμβο. Πριν από την έναρξη των πειραματικών επιχειρήσεων, αξιωματούχοι του υπουργείου πολιτικής αεροπορίας εξέτασαν τους σταθμούς επιβατών του αεροδρομίου της Νέας Διοίκησης, τους μετρητές διαβατηρίων, τη ζώνη αφορολόγητων ειδών, τους αεροδιάδρομους και το κέντρο ελέγχου.

Ο κεντρικός τερματικός σταθμός του αεροδρομίου είναι πάνω από 5.000 τετραγωνικά μέτρα, με χωρητικότητα φιλοξενίας 300 επιβατών ανά ώρα. Υπάρχουν οκτώ θέσεις στάθμευσης με μέγιστη χωρητικότητα 500 αυτοκινήτων και 20 λεωφορείων.

Το νέο διοικητικό αεροδρόμιο είναι το κυριότερο έργο της κυβέρνησης, καθώς η διοίκηση επιδιώκει να διαμορφώσει την Αίγυπτο σε ελκυστική επενδυτική αγορά.

General in English / Tourists face JAIL for riding scooters without a Thai licence

Tourists face JAIL for riding scooters without a Thai licence

They face a month in jail or a one thousand baht fine.
Rental shops are also on the radar with fines up to 2,000 baht for anyone who rents to tourists who&nbsp;don’t show a license.</p>
Pol Maj Arut Sathanon said he was following orders handed down from
the RTP HQ that were being taken seriously by the new Pattaya chief Pol Col Prawit Chorseng.
Patrols could be expected every night and shops were being inspected.
Sophon referred to “gangs of tourists” on noisy bikes touring around
the resort annoying other road users, other tourists and residents.

The announcement appears to be a response to an incident involving
Arab tourists who were part of a large group driving around that led to
the death of a female Russian tourist a few weeks ago.
Another serious accident just this morning saw two Thai students grievously injured in an accident with a tourist on a motorcycle.
Pol Maj Arut said that all tourists must be in possession of an
international driving licence (or other legal permit) to rent and ride a  motorcycle at the resort.
Offenders could face a month in jail and a fine up to 1,000 baht or both.
Shops renting bikes to tourists could face a fine of up to 2,000 baht for contravening the regulations.
These were being strictly enforced, he said with no get out clause.
The force is also cracking down on illegally adapted motorcycles and cars in the city.
