2 weeks late on 90 day reporting but have a doctor's note?

Recommended Posts

My friend was in an accident and is now 2 weeks late on 90 day reporting. Will they be fined the maximum amount or will a doctor's note from the hospital be sufficient? The doctor's note says they will not be able to return to work for several more days. The accident has prevented her from walking much.

Good chance they will be fined. You don’t need to report yourself do being ill isn’t really an excuse.

Is your friend aware that 90 day reports can be posted to the appropriate Immigration Office ?

no, she is a Cambodian on an L-A visa and doesn't own a computer and isn't computer literate.

She wasn't ill. She was in a car accident.

Any good friend could and would have made the report on her behalf.

Good luck, but as the 90 reporting can done by another person or online there is no real excuse for not doing it and the fine will be most probable issued.

He may get words of sympathy along with the fine. It is not a fortune and, apart from the fine, there are no other ramifications. In future, if he cannot go himself and reporting online does not work, he should get a friend to do it for him. Once he is over the 7 day grace period, he must go himself.

I was using “ill” generically. Ill or injured it doesn’t make any difference as she can nominate someone else to do it for her. 

 

It’s worth explaining the situation when she eventually reports as they can waive the fine, but I wouldn’t expect them to.

Why didn't you do the report for your "friend"?

Yes, someone else can/ could have done the report for her ( why the O/P keeps referring to her as "they" is a mystery).

I seldom go myself. I just send driver with my passport. No problem.

2,000 Baht fine. No big deal.

If you are earning 300 baht a day I would think being fined around 7 days pay IS a big deal. 

Let's put it into perspective using the Aussie minimum wage of around 18 dollars an hour.  18*8*7 is around a thousand bucks or 570 pounds.  Not a big deal?  I think it is. 

Reading the OP it seems his friend may be a Cambodian guest worker.  Might not even get 300 baht a day.
