‘Better if you do’: Phuket Immigration chief urges foreigners to re-register addresses, even if staying off-island just one night

Recommended Posts

Surely the Immigration Centre's would be over run by hundreds of expats returning from a weekend away...Still they could employ more staff lol

Yes a 6 month multiple entry tourist visa METV. It has been around about 3 years. If used correctly with your dates it can last for 9 months ( that would require 2 border hops or visa trips.  There is a very long thread on it in the visa section. Costs $200USD Approx.  No reporting. Sixty days each entry than can be extended for 30 more days at immigration. Petty much you have to get it in your home country. 


So it’s a 60 day multiple entry visa with a maximum stay of 90 days at a time (subject to visiting the immigration for a 30 day extension), it is NOT a 6 month visa that would allow you to stay in the country for 6 months hassle free. I make that 60 days hassle free, not 6 months hassle free.

The only thing you were right on was there not being any 90 day hassle, you have a 60 day hassle instead.

You actually got me excited, how crazy of me to think their might actually be a 6 month visa. We can all dream I suppose.

My understanding is it is the property owner that is legally required to notify them, do you know something I don't?

What is the procedure to "re-register"? Me and my wife live together in a house registered in her name. If we go away for a few days, when we come home does she need to take another day off work to go to immigration and report me?

I am fascinated  (well I'm not really!) by the number of people who are not affected by this who have chosen to post on the subject. This is about PHUKET, not Nakon Nowhere or the Sewer.

 

 

Is there a TV rule, saying that people are not allowed opinions of things, whether it be Thailand or worldwide related, unless you actually live in that place ? :coffee1:

Just go and register. How hard can it be?

Easy for me, as I only have a 20 minute drive to my local Immigration office.

 

For others it seems that a long drive each way could be necessary. Some of those folks may not have a car and have to rely on public transport - God help them.

No, why should Immigration be expected to presume you have returned to the property you regard as home?

 

You are legally required to inform them, not them make presumptions and guesses on your behalf. 

 

You could be visiting family, friends, some new gf or whatever and staying in their residence. I don't know any police force that would accept making assumptions and presumptions as part of a procedure like this.

 

And he's being very good to remind people so they don't get fined.

where do you come from? what do you want ? you exuse a stupid statement from a thai official. nowhere in the world you have to make a report when you return to your home adress. 

Why you not put a GPS chip under your skin and give the IMO your data so they can follow you 24/7

and why anybody should care about what a policeforce making assumptions? You do nothing wrong so you dont have to care the police or whatever.

You should get a life and not writing 21.xxx posts

What next?  A micro chip on arrival? Big Brother is watching you! Come back George Orwell. All is forgiven. Thailand, oh Thailand. Where are you going? You're becoming like rats in a bucket. Very alarming and sad.Many moons ago when I first arrived here it was explained to me that Thailand meant Free Land. Yeah?

Just forget it , if they fine you at immigration , make sure to film it and post on Facebook . 

Make sure the whole world gets to know what kind of stupidity this is.

Usual Thai immigration, and pretty much all the other departments type of comment.

No thought, brain in neutral and mouth in reverse...

And people wonder why Thais can't drive?

:cheesy:

Same old story: Please send your money to Thailand, but stay at home, we don't want you.
