How do you know that no one bothers .

The hotels and condos that I stay in , they report it without telling the reported person

They've never asked for any I'd.

If they don't know who I am, how can they report I'm staying?

Maybe I just look honest (or you don't).

he standard of policing on KT has often been questioned and I think that this visa overstay confirms the doubts many posters have raised in the past.

That this man can stay continually on a small island for 6 years without raising any suspicion is a big joke.

Not really , it happens all over Thailand , overstayers are everywhere , especially in remote villages in Isaan .

Don't make this a KT problem again , because it's not . 

 

Big Joke is in the news weekly arresting overstayers and criminals all over Thailand.

If they enter anything in the records and have any sort of rudimentary database, it should be easy and fairly quick to do some searches or queries and find the gaps.  No doubt thousands of missing or incomplete records, name errors, passport errors.  But fine, start there look for entry date and exit date.  No find?  Dig and look deeper

Or actually do something useful with government $$$.

How can you be documented an illegal at the same time?  Happens all the time in the USA.  The size of the country itself is used to hide in, but that is a separate thing.  The USA has policies about documented illegals.  It is extremely common.  Do a little research and you will see.

You didn't answer my question.............give is an example, somthing we can chew on.

Do your own research. If the question was how can one be a documented illegal, the answer is simple.  The USA actually has a fairly long and drawn out deportation system. One can get a lawyer, claim abuse or fear of reprisal back home, the case can be under adjudication for a very long time.  For some data you could read here, or get off your butt and look into the issue if you really care.  And the article contains several links to DHS websites.

Whenever you stay anywhere (be it at a hotel, a person's home, etc…) the owners of the place have to report you to immigration within the first 24 hours

I have stayed in umpteen number of road side co called resorts in Issan but never my passport was scanned or I was registered. I was always with my GF though. One time my passport was stolen and I even reported to police to get a police report for a new passport. Police never questioned me for TM30 or other such nonsense. Of course, that was may be 2011/12.

I do not stay at any hotel asking for my passport, if they do not want my driving license they can go to hell, I will stay somewhere else.

I guess that excludes staying at any reputable hotel then. Any business accommodating guests is required to online register guests with immigration with one of the required information being the Passport number. 

 

I would assume smaller guesthouses in the countryside might close both eyes but doubt that any better hotel in a tourist centre would accept this?

Wrong, so many hotels accept this. The only cheap chain that requires passport is Hopinn, all other hotels around 1000 thb do not care. I haven't showed my passport to any hotel since years, and when going to higher range hotels Thai check inn for me and my passport is never asked.

Interesting, did not think that bigger corporates would be willing to break the law for the sake of a night's accommodation.

My Thai DL is accepted everywhere , the passport number is the same number on the DL . My address is printed on the back of the DL so it's actually better than a passport, give them all the information they need.
