Haven't opened the site, but if you go into overstay, i.e. can't get to CWattana on time due to circumstances unforeseen, does it permit paying the 2,000B via credit card? If so, how much of a risk is that? Anybody?

If you are late you will have to go to immigration to do your report and pay the fine.

The instructions tell you that you can only do online reporting in the window of 15 to 7 days before the report date.

At some point in the future... so currently only available on a browser nobody uses and is going away completely.

It is possible to do it with other browsers. I just opened it on Chrome using a bookmark for the page I set up when this was first discussed. It will not work by clicking the link on the immigration website. Copy and paste this address in the your bowser extranet.immigration.go.th/pibics/online/tm47/TM47Action.do

Doesn't work with my Chrome of Firefox

Have you clicked OK on the message about it only working with IE, It should load after that.

When I do it in Chrome it does not always work the first time for some reason. But it does work on the next try.

Anyone else see the irony of opening up the program on this date? clap2.gifcheesy.gif

No

Because it's on 'Civil Service Day'?

Opened in Linux using Chrome and FF with the link. S>L>O>W as could be, and I am on fiber optic 3BB. Got the home page, scrolled through the agreement down to bottom, tried to click the "accept" but dysfunctional, but the "decline" works which of course boots you out.

Nor ready for prime time.

Could the announcement or some step-by-step instructions be pinned in this forum for future reference?

Shirley, it will be simple and straightforward to use, being written by Thai web designers. And well-maintained, too...

No need instructions.

My point exactly

Yeah I noticed that too! Is anyone surprised by this? What web lackey would design it only for explorer but a Thai?

Actually considering the usual "news item" posted on Thai Visa on that date and the usual hook-line-and-sinker reactions by Thai Visa members, it may be ironic is a way totally opposite from what you are implying.

It works. You have to scroll down to the bottom and acknowledge you've read the agreement by clicking a box. Then the "Accept" button activates.

As for ie it isn't being dropped as such as it will run in conjunction with the new browser as i'm led to believe on reading microsoft literature.

So this old man set in his way is smiling once again.

Just to point out ( and it matters to understand, it's not just hair-splitting) : you are NOT on overstay at any point if you miss your 90-day report. Overstay is an immigration offence - it means you are in the country illegally after your permission to stay has expired.

Your 90-day report does not PERMIT you to stay longer, and not doing it doesn't mean you have "overstayed". You can enter Thailand on Jan 1st, on a visa that allows you to stay for a year, and you still have to do a 90-day report at the end of March. If you do not do it you still have a completely valid permission to stay for a year, and this is not changed.

You merely become guilty of the technical offence of failing to report your address at intervals of 90 days, which is triggered whenever you stay in the country for 90 days consecutively. The need to do 90-day reports is in fact caused by the fact that you have permission to stay that exceeds 90 days, and so you are by definition never on on overstay after 90 days, even if you don't do your address report.

Does this work when doing a 90 day reporting for a non- immigration O visa, it is multiple entry and I have to do a border run every 90 days? I don't want have to do a border run every 90 days if possible.

An "un-clickable" link just goes to show...... I dunno. They are copying the US & Chinese government websites every step of the way I guess.

Don't you just love the efficiency of government?...... And some people think that paying taxes is a good thing.

In theory it is. Never, ever seen it work properly though as far as civil servants.

90 day report online is currently NOT recommended:

As HTTP Secure is NOT provided.

Seriously... It's not a site where you use your Credit Card,

and your personal data are all over the Internet already.

Why would a pirate lost his time to intercept your Internet communications with this site ?

A "pirate" may like to listen in at the immigration end though and be able to capture ALL details submitted via this site. Also, last time I checked, my name, address, date of birth and passport number were not available "all over the Internet" to anybody.

If an attacker were able to collect this information, he would have a nice database of every foreigner in Thailand, name, address, passport number, date of birth, gender, etc, which might be worth a baht or two to a marketer or a cyber-criminal looking to steal identities.

This is the risk you take, as they say, up to you...

It is for doing reports of staying longer than 90 days in the country.

You cannot stay longer than 90 days because your visa only allows you to get a 90 entry. You have to leave and re-enter the country to get a new entry every 90 days. You are not doing a report of any kind when you do that.

The only way you can avoid making border runs is to apply for an extension of stay. It could be for retirement, marriage to a Thai or being the legal parent of a Thai.

Nobody? IE still is more used than Firefox, Safari or Opera

Not by a long shot.

As for https, that is very simple to implement unless they can't afford to buy a commercial certificate but still can use a self signed one.

A step in the right direction for sure, but....

Maybe I'm sometimes a tad jaded by the reliability of Thai bureaucracy, and since going to immigration in KK isn't much of an effort for me, I'm thinking I'll give it 6-9 months and just see how things pan out.

Hopefully we don't get a rash of bemused looking farangs being carted off in shackles to an immigration paddy wagon, burbling something along the lines of..."but I submitted it all online, really I did"
