Queuing system via smart phone set to make immigration matters in Chonburi easier

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Its great to see officials are looking to simplify things, the problem is they never really think few steps ahead.

 

things like it needs to be ALWAYS updated, as smartphones software gets constant updates, optimizes for all ALL browsers and again updated as each browser always gets updated., then also secured to avoid being hacked or information stolen and finally to be monitored by a human.

 

That means having extra work force to receive the information on the other end and respond to it. Which then means staff would need to receive training.

 

If this initiative is thought out as well as all others, i am afraid it would be another waste of time, just like 90 day reporting, which does not function for half of the time and other times no response is received at all

I'll go with the old-fashioned way for now. I can foresee a lot of problems with this.

If this information was already on a computer system from previous applications,ha ha,and they could link to that it may be viable but for the likes of an extension of stay ,retirement, you would have to upload a couple of dozen or more copies of whatever. Somebody at the other end would have to check the uploaded documents, respond when incorrect etc, then eventually make an appointment plus all the other things that can go wrong.

 

An admirable idea but very difficult in practice. A few test runs with selected applicants may have been a better way before the app was put on general release?

Bring it on!  90 days online works great for me. 

That may be true if you entered the country recently. But instead of updating the database the immigration recommends to leave the country and return as a workaround for their bugs. 😞

There are a couple of key phrases in the OP, "queuing system" and "So long as your documents are in order"

 

I suspect this will be no more than a "dont need to take a paper ticket" when you arrive at immigration.

 

It appears to be nothing more than an appointment app and probably wont put you in front of the people who already took a paper ticket when the arrived.

Just try it, they want access to almost everything, location, photo's, documents just name it... I uninstalled it already.

Is that why there isn’t an IOS App!?

Apple will not permit access to any of the above without the explicit user approval.

Ok then I'm quite positive that it wont work very well ....look at the very very long thread for the (simple) online 90 day report for past track record...this new app seems to be multiple times more complex.

Reality is, you will probably now have to provide a photocopy showing proof the app is on your phone.

It is my understanding that the clients of Thai Immigration are strickly foreigners.  So why would the app and the instructions shown in the photos be in Thai?  Am I missing something here?

Silly question , so that immigration officers can follow it 😂😂😂

Same here. Soon they'll want to know when I empty my bowel!
