I don't suppose anyone at immigration has put out any information about this. No? Thought not. What a drag.

Tried out the website when Ubon Joe notified that it was working, successful. Shame it was too early for my report at the time.

At least they have changed the graphic on the site now. At least we know it is "Under Construction/down".

You can click on the Enter website and it just takes you back to the main Immigration page ad infinitum.

That only comes up if you click the online 90 day reporting button on the immigration website.

If you use this link you get the "Failure of Web Server bridge:" message.  https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online

FWIW, since the online system is a fiasco, today I did my (second ever) 90-day at the rat Burana Big C.  None of the reporting locations are convenient for me (I'm in Central BKK, Erawan/Ratchaprasong area), but with the right timing on a Tuesday off-peak it was a relatively painless drive across the river and back - 20 min there and 30 back - certainly a big improvement over CW.

 

Rat Burana immigration is very easy to find, in the underground Big C Jumbo carpark area, and would have been very fast (zero queue) if not for the need to complete the silly "foreigner information" form in triplicate for the entire family. Highly recommended alternative for those in my neighborhood. I would never return to CW for this purpose.

Surely a postal notification is simpler still than a trip to CW?

I live close to the same area as you in Bangkok. Where exacly is the Big C (immigration office) ? And can I get there by BTS or MRT ?

Well to add even more confusion. If you managed to get your report online before it crashed, and you checked and it said pending, it is actually approved.

 

I put my in online early April. Waited and nothing... system crashed a few days later. We sent a courier out to CW, armed with passport. The officer there, took one look and rather rudely said, yes it was already processed....and by very rude I mean extremely. When questioned, he proudly announced to the courier, that is says so on his computer, so why was she there? When she explained the website is down , he said, that his wasn't so it was ok.

 

There also seems to be zero chance of phoning immigration. We tried the day before. It nicely said... for English press 1, so we pressed 1, to be greeted again... for English press 1. After 4 times we realised that was all we are getting... 

 

So I guess they just prefer the personal visit. A wonderful modern society. Why can't they just announce the problem?

If you google "Rat Burana Big C" you'll get the location, which is just across the river bridge then a u-turn (I tried to post a link, but not allowed).  I had no idea where it was either, just used Google maps for navigation and it was spot on:

Big C Supercenter

19 Moo 9 Ratburana Rd., Bangpakok, Rat Burana, Bangkok 10140

 

 I don't think it's convenient for BTS/MRT, so if you don't drive you'd probably be best with a taxi or another location -- also, add 50 bt each way for expressway toll.

Obviously, it's far too late to post it after attempting to use the online system.  Plus, I've never been able to successfully print out the immigration Word docs (always come out a mess), only the PDF versions (none for 90-day) have printed properly. This time I grabbed extra form copies for future use.

It may be because they haven't configured their secure https page correctly!

And the mass cyberattack mentioned elsewhere on here presumably means that it ain't gonna back online any time soon in all probability.

it is because someones brothers cousin did the IT work and the result is clear, what they should have done is gone to a professional IT company who have properly trained people to do the work

Postal votes in Surin Province are a no-no. Surin Immigration will not accept/process them. If we direct the application to Bangkok, their response is "you must apply at your local immigration".

Yes, but Bangkok Immigration, the reference to CW (Chaengwattana), does accept mailed-in 90--day reports, and doing that is often a lot easier and less expensive and less time-consuming that making an in-person trip to one of the BKK reporting offices.

The mail-in to Bangkok/CW works good....I've done it for my last five 90 day reports since the online reporting don't work for me...not in their database since my last entry into  Thailand was before Jan 2013.  I mailed the 90 day report package via EMS around 10-12 days before the due day (EMS cost approx 40 baht)....CW receives the package usually 2 days later....they process the package a few days before the due date and I get the new 90 day reciept returned via mail about a week later.   The only time and reason I now go to immigration is annually to renew my  retirement extension of stay.
