Online 90 day reporting available from April 1st

2,936 posts in this topic

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

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...

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.

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"

Mission Impossible !!!

The website doesn't support my browser.

I am not going to buy a computer with an old Internet Explorer that still has all that buggs inside and isn't safe for hackers !!!

They are still using illegal copies of Windows XP I guess...

As said already it will work with other browsers. It has been found that with other browsers you have to copy and paste the website address into your browser.

You still get that message you posted but it will work after you click OK.

Most browsers have extensions you can install to emulate IE also.

^ yes,you're confused.

The user guide seems to be conveniently written in Thai!

You gave up too easily. Scroll down and there are instructions in English.

and - mainly - is *available* on most Windows PC

BTW did you read the original article ?

The service currently requires the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser.

The bureau hopes to make it compatible with other popular browsers later.

I have a website, and after reading the remarks about this only working on IE browser, just went to look at the report statistics on what browsers are used by visitors which are currently (in order of popularity): 1. Chrome, 2. Safari, 3. Firefox. That makes up more than 98% of traffic (mostly Western countries with very little Asian visibility). Netscape, all versions of IE and a couple of others make up the remaining <2%. If I and millions of other sites can handle all the browsers, then surely a Gov't department can(?).

Why don't they hire one of the experts from PAIBKK.com.

They have the experience since 1981 and were Europe's first B2B internet access and presence provider in 1993.

Also they hacked everything that could be hacked in the 1980's.

Also the link at the immigration website to the TM 47 document/form gives a 404 Not Found error

I have just done mine online, but when I clicked on "send" I didn't get any confirmation message. Email confirmation would be ideal. I will send my documents by post just in case.

Which part of "From 1st April" did you not understand ?

Same as me. Actually I am worried about this site. This could be a high risk of a massive database leak...

Take it in personally, send a proxy, use an agent or mail it in.

All or any of these will help you decrease your worrying significantly.

You have a choice in that suspicious individuals can continue making 90 reports at an immigration office where ALL "Your" information can be found on "Their" computers !

How many programming languages is the 10 year old skilled in using ?

Does anyone know if this is going to apply to all type of visas? Including Education visa?
If so, does that mean that the 1900 fee for the report have been waved?

This debate has nothing to do with "visas" and only affects those who stay in country for longer than 90 days. Making a 90 report costs Nothing !

You are confusing the issue with "extensions of stay" which will continue to cost 1900 Bht even for those on "ED visas" !smile.png

This is only for the 90 day reporting of address. Nothing to do with visas/extensions.
