News Around Town
- Chiang Mai Resource Guide 2017 - Lori Rowe, CCCC advisor, has released her latest Chiang Mai Resource Guide 2017 (Aug. 2017). Contains a rich assortment of helpful topics touching on many aspects of Chiang Mai living -- prepared by someone with an extensive background from which to draw in working with others. [She and her husband, Bruce, raised their family here and have faithfully served this community for more than 20 years.]. (08/2017)
- Chiang Mai Immigration’s Calendar displays accurate holidays when Chiang Mai Immigration is scheduled to be closed on a business day M-F: http://www.chiangmaiimm.com/th-th/2016-06-05-07-26-37/2017-02-13-11-29-42.html (Note: you can also scroll forward to see future month holday closures as well) (08/2017)
- Immigration Online 90-day Reporting Link - Temporarily Working Again... Immigration's online reporting was working on 8-9 August when CCCC volunteers tried it. Submitted 90-day reports were approved the very next day (within 36 hours). It appears Immigration’s reporting site has been temporarily available again since the beginning of August 2017. Let’s hope this useful online service continues to last and will save folks time.
Caveat: Immigration’s reporting site has been up and down since the beginning of 2017 and will suddenly become unavailable from time to time without warning. It is best to allow plenty of lead time (7-15 days before your report is due) and not to become too dependent upon or have too high expectations for online reporting availability. When the system is not working, please try either Mail-In or In-Person reporting methods in Immigration Help.
- Main Chiang Mai Immigration office to remain at Promenada throughout 2017 - The Promenada Immigration ground floor and 2nd floor office infrastructure has been in place since the staff from the old Airport Immigration office combined with the Promenada staff (at the end of last while that location has been under reconstruction). For avoiding long queues, mid-week visits sometime will work better (avoid Mondays, Fridays, and days before/after holidays) but this depends on the type of visa you will be processing (e.g., Education/Teacher visa queues tend to be busier once the new international academic year begins). Visa Services: see signs displayed on glass walls of each separate office, according to type of visa, for where to queue. As an example the signs for Office #2 (located just to the left of the ground level main Immigration office) say, “Education, Missionary, Teacher, Monk...”. The signs for Office #3 say “Volunteer”, “Non-Formal Education”, “Student Visa”, “Retirement”, “Medical Case”, “Re-Entry Permit”, “Tourist”, “Transfer Stamp”, “Visa Cancellation”, etc. | Note: Depending on visa queues, some may start to queue at Promenada as early as 5 or 6 a.m. (bring torch/flashlight if you do!) to wait to receive their appointment sequence number later on (when offices open at 8:30 a.m.) | Reporting Services: for TM.47 and TM.30 reporting see Immigration Help. For reporting, best practice seems to be to arrive later in the morning or early afternoon. (08/2017)
- TM.30 Reporting Cycle - TM.30 reporting is typically handled by the Immigration Promenada 2nd floor office. See Immigration Help. (Note: some have reported they still have been able to make TM.30 reports or update their info on file (after returning to Thailand) at the small #3 building still standing at the rear of the construction underway at the old main Immigration office near the airport).
The CCCC has assisted many families over the years who are going through transition, not only when they first arrive but also when the time comes to finally leave. For those wanting housing please see Establishing a Place to Live below or perhaps post of a short description of what kind of a home and when you are looking to move to Chiang Mai in our CCCC FaceBook group.

Living in Chiang Mai
- Join our CCCC FaceBook Group to learn of the many local events going on in our community at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ccccclassifieds/.
- Get a copy of the 82-page booklet "Helpful Hints for Getting Settled in Chiang Mai” published by the Chiang Mai Community Church. Many have used this for their introduction to Chiang Mai. Cost: 50 baht -- one of the best guides for Chiang Mai living you can find. Here is how to find a copy.;
- See Lori Rowe’s latest Chiang Mai Resource Guide 2017 that she recently released (Aug. 2017). Contains a rich assortment of helpful topics touching on many aspects of Chiang Mai living -- prepared by someone with an extensive background from which to draw in working with others. [She and her husband, Bruce, raised their family here and have faithfully served this community for more than 20 years.];
- Refer often to the valuable CCCC Community Resources or Chiang Mai Community Map to help you find over 1000 useful tips and places around town. Google has told us these have been used by thousands over the years living here in northern Thailand and throughout the world;
- Check out Family Transition Fun and other trainings, workshops and events offered by the The Well International site -- useful whether you are new to Chiang Mai life or going through a transition in your life. Note: The Well International moved to their new location in World Club in August 2017;
- Exactly when do you have to next report to Thai Immigration? Click here to visit our Immigration Services Help. It may clear up your responsibilities for reporting to local Immigration authorities. See our recent updates to the TM.30 Reporting Cycle;
- See hints for setting up Banking in Thailand;
- While most of us may not like to think about contingencies, please be sure that you and your family have sufficient health care coverage in place. Self-insuring too often proves impractical and fails, especially if you should fall unconscious from a sudden injury or serious illness. Family and friends are stuck with having to quickly raise or obtain the needed funds. If you work as part of an organisation/foundation, they should give you further guidance in this area. (Note: the CCCC Classifieds team has no affiliation with insurance agencies and other than listing a few service locations, along with hundreds of other businesses on our community map, we do not give specific recommendations -- other than to say you need to have reasonable health provision.) FYI - typically health care costs are lower at local government hospitals rather than private, and there are highly regarded medical and dental teaching hospitals in Chiang Mai (see Hospitals). Your country embassy may be able to assist with communications in an emergency -- once again, please Register Online with Your Embassy... for the sake of your loved ones as well!

Navigating Life in Chiang Mai
About the CCCC Map - what started as a local home grown effort several years ago has developed into a veritable repository of accumulated community-wide shared knowledge of more than 1000 Chiang Mai locations. Current map usage recently surpassed 40,000 views (see Google map counter under its banner). The map’s hidden value can be found by clicking various place marks -- you will discover hundreds of contributions from folks in the community — includes tips, suggestions, and helpful hard-to-find info. --> Search "CCCC Map" or go to sites.google.com/site/ccccrecent/home/chiang-mai-map-cccc.
Chiang Mai Community Map - Where is _____? How do you find _____? | Click Search and submit a place, key-word or item you would like to locate, such as “Immigration”, “residence certificate”. Be sure to select “See all __ results” to display all locations and results. Tips: to uncover underlying info, click any of the symbols on this interactive map to see background, directions and photos. Zoom in and out as necessary to reveal surrounding details. Thousands make use of this latest version of the free CCCC Map. Click Here or web search for “CCCC Map” (also works on many mobile devices).
Use the CCCC CM Area Map with Real-time Navigation - if you use a mobile device that has Google Maps, when you open our CCCC Chiang Mai Area MAP in Google Maps, you should be able to obtain navigation routes, directions and travel times to various places. Note: mileage may vary depending on your Wi-fi connection and data plan. (08/2016)
Indoor Google Maps - you can now use Google’s Indoor Maps to view floor plans at some of the larger CM multi-storey malls. Click here If you would like to try this (best to use with desktop/laptop computer) using the Central Festival Department store as an example (in the bottom right of your map, choose among levels and floors -- this also works with Central Airport Plaza). For mobile devices, first open Chiang Mai Community Map, then view in Google Maps. If you cannot view Indoor Google Maps on your device, you should at least be able to obtain regular driving routes, ETA and directions if you have the Google Maps app installed (open one of our Placemark icons and, if displayed, select “View in Google Maps”). (08/2016)
Many helpful recommendations from folks who have lived right here in our own community for years went into pulling this information together, along with volunteer efforts from the Family Connection Foundation, Community Resource Foundation and sponsorship of local churches (like CMCC and CRF). Hopefully what you find in our publications will help make living in Chiang Mai just a little easier…
A helpful guide called “National Preparedness Month” has been prepared by ready.gov. While admittedly geared to life in the U.S., their excellent Make-A-Plan advice is directly adaptable to expats living overseas (Translations available: العربية | 中文 | Español | Français | हिन्दी | 日本語 | 한국어 | Pусский | Tagalog | Tiếng Việt) | If you do nothing else, register online with your own embassy here in Thailand (21 different countries). Lastly, consider this article “How to Deal with a Crisis Overseas” from GOV.UK. Tailor your plan as necessary with information from your embassy. (09/06)

Banking in Thailand
- Transferring Funds - As you may already know, two of the largest banks in Thailand are Bangkok Bank (BB) and Siam Commercial Bank (SCB). There are also many other banks from which to choose (you may want to ask a friend about their experiences with various banks.) For receiving funds from your home country, be aware that wire transfers, while a relatively safe option, also can be expensive. For Americans, Bangkok Bank has the unique convenience of having a New York branch where you can use more inexpensive EFT (ACH) to transfer funds directly to your account here in Thailand, thus circumventing expensive wire transfers. In fact, this method is deemed secure enough by the US Social Security Admin. for them to make regular monthly direct deposits to one's BB Thailand acct. number. (The main requirement in the later case is that the BB account must be in the name of the SS recipient only.) You can also use this method to receive joint account transfers from a U.S. bank or credit union as well . Upon receipt, the Bangkok Bank - NY branch will transfer these funds directly to your Thailand BB acct. For charges and methods, see Bangkok Bank’s Fund Transfer website. (If the U.S. SS option is something you would ever want to look into, be sure to bring your Soc. Scty. card with you when you come to Thailand -- Note: if you list a Thailand address with the U.S. SSA, they may send you their annual SS Form 7162 to verify “If you are still alive?”.). [Also note that other countries have their own rules and requirements to qualify for their retirement pensions or social benefits, such as, you must return to your home country for so many days each year to remain qualified (to our knowledge the U.S. does not impose such a requirement). Check with your home country government.]
- ATMs - Of course, you can also use ATMs to receive funds from your home country. However, be warned -- these fees can quickly add up! Thai banks impose heavy fees of 150-200 baht-per each ATM transaction! While some banking institutions back in your home country may reimburse you for some of these fees, others might add a Foreign Bank fee. Credit card and ATM companies also will deduct an additional 1% international fee or give you a low THB exchange rate. Monitor your home country and Thailand banking statements (many are available online). [The worse case which we have heard was one person who was naively surprised at the end of their first year that they literally had paid out thousands of baht (and hundreds of U.S. dollars) in fees!] Charles Schwab is one company in the U.S. that will reimburse these fees. There are others as well-- check with your home bank or credit union. [Note: Others please share information or suggestions how to transfer funds inexpensively from other countries -- please let the CCCC team know the details by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org -- thank you.]
- Credit Cards, Debit Cards, and Checks: Personal checking is not popular in Thailand. Thai banks may reluctantly accept personal checks for deposit but impose high fees of 300 THB or greater per check and usually have long float periods before crediting these to your account. Some Thai banks will let you set up Electronic Fund Transfers with utility companies here to pay monthly bills (you can also pay some bills at Central Festival, a local popular shopping mall, and at some 7-11s). Larger banks may also offer online transfers even to accounts at other banks. Most Thai banks can also issue you a debit ATM card which you can conveniently use at major stores. International MasterCard and Visa cards are both readily accepted (but again watch for those creeping international charges). Some credit card companies will not only waive their international fees but will reward or credit a percentage of all purchases back into your account (even for foreign purchases you make in Thailand). Please see this helpful article from Money Crashers: "7 Things to Consider When Using Credit Cards Overseas" - http://www.moneycrashers.com/using-credit-cards-overseas/

So when do I have to report to Immigration?
First, be sure to check the latest “Stay Until Date” you have stamped in your passport. Do not overstay! You must leave Thailand by this date or have extended your stay with Immigration. There are also other times when you need to report. We have described some of the important topics here (like when you intend to stay in Thailand beyond 90 consecutive days, or you have just returned from another country, or you have just moved to a new address). [Caveat Emptor: This is a free community service. We do not claim to be visa experts and all information is to be taken as advisory only.] We trust that you will find the following helpful.

If you are new to Chiang Mai...
Make careful note and keep track of your Stay Until Date in your passport so you do not overstay your authorised stay in Thailand (for penalties and consequences see Overstay Advisory below). There are many aspects to obtaining and processing Thai visas -- that requires extensive research. If you are part of a school, business, NGO or volunteer foundation, discuss with them how they might be able to assist you when applying for future visa changes/extensions. They also can give you advice on taking out a Re-Entry permit that protects, and does not void, your long-term visa should you need to fly out and return to Thailand. As an alternative, perhaps seek the advice of a visa agent in Chiang Mai. (Note: we do not recommend any particular agent but you can refer to our CCCC Community Map for help finding their locations).
While we on the CCCC volunteer team do not claim to be visa experts, as a free community service, we try to discuss (see below) different ways to handle repetitive routine time-consuming Immigration reporting procedures which all foreign nationals must endure who remain long-term in Thailand. We do this in an attempt to help folks work together as efficiently and effectively as possible, saving everyone time and headaches. Hopefully, the following topics will assist you to avoid being caught unaware as you continue to live in Thailand.
For starters, begin counting 89 days from the first day you arrived in Thailand, this will help you to anticipate when your first 90-day notification report is due (should you continue to stay beyond that date). The main Immigration office is now at Promenada [Note: while the old Provincial Chiang Mai Immigration office by the airport is under re-construction - until 2018.] Chiang Mai Immigration is sometimes referred to as the “One Stop Service” office and is located at Promenada Mall. The latter is where you also go to file 90-day Notification reports (TM.47) in person. See our Immigration Help. (04/2017).
TIP: A recommendation is to make yourself an Immigration “kit” with the following so you have copies of this information prepared anytime you need it (some will also include pictures of each person in their family and keep this handy whenever they go to Immigration):
- Signed copies of main passport pages for each foreign national in your family. This should include copies of each person’s visa, arrival date and TM.6 (Departure card) pages (Note: usually your Stay Until Date is stamped on your current Thailand visa page -- check to see that it is);
- Optional - Signed copy of homeowner’s blue (or yellow) house book (homeowner signs - can be faxed to you). Also, a signed copy of homeowner’s Thai National ID card [บัตรประจำตัวประชาชน - bat pracham tua pracha chon] (homeowner signs - Immigration may accept a faxed copy). The homeowner can write “For Immigration Purposes Only” (in Thai) on these copies if he or she feels more comfortable releasing this information that way;
- Optional - Copy of your rental/lease agreement if you have one (only show if asked to do so by Immigration).
- In addition, it is a good idea to keep a copy of the main page of your passport in your wallet or purse. Many businesses will want to make a copy of this when you conduct business. But bring your original passport with you when you go to Immigration (or if you go to a bank to open a new bank account or to make a withdrawal in person). You would also need your passport with you if you need to go in for a serious procedure/admission at a hospital.
Warning! -- DO NOT leave Thailand without FIRST obtaining your RE-ENTRY PERMIT! You may also need to obtain one for each person in your family whose permission to stay in Thailand is dependent upon your visa (when they are travelling with you). If you should omit or forget to take this simple but critical step (prior to departing Thailand) you will automatically make null and void your current Thailand visa! This can affect the dependent visas of other family members as well -- especially important if you hold a Work Permit and intend to continue your work in Thailand.
When you exit Thailand, keep in mind that Immigration does not necessarily warn you that you forgot to obtain your re-entry permit. Over the years there have been too many stories of folks returning to Thailand only to find out their long-term work visa had been cancelled when they left the country (when they did not bother to apply for a Re-Entry Permit). Then, if they had intended to continue their work here, they needed to start their entire visa application process all over again (often at an additional cost of thousands of baht and many weeks of work). This can impact your Work Permit as well. Re-Entry Permits cost 1000 baht per single entry per each family member travelling. But it will save you a lot of grief in the long run. For the few exceptions as to when you may not need a re-entry permit and other info, please refer to this article: “Thai Re-Entry Permit Explained”.
See latest address in 90-day Mail-in for where you now mail 90-day notification reports. With ongoing construction at the old Airport Imm site near the airport for the remainder of 2017, all Visa processing services are temporarily transferred to Promenada Immigration. TM.47, TM.30 (and TM.28) reporting as well. (9/2017)
If you recently mailed-in your 90 day report, did you ever receive your paper receipt from Immigration? Of, did you end up needing to go to Immigration to find out what happened? Could you please CLICK HERE to take a quick survey and let us know.
Immigration Promenada One-Stop-Service
(Update) Immigration Promenada Office - expect the recent fast pace to continue well into August as many new folks arrive to live and work in Chiang Mai. The infrastructure at Imm Prom office is mostly up to speed with transferred staff and procedures from the old Airport Immigration office (last fall), but longest queues typically still tend to occur Mondays and days before & after a public holiday. Visa Services: early morning signs are taped to the window of each separate office according to visa type. Queue in front of each (chairs may be available) to wait to receive your assigned appointment queue number later on. As an example, the sign at Office #2 (located immediately to the left of main Immigration office) might say, “Education, Missionary, Teacher, Monk...”. The sign for Office #3 will say “Volunteer”. Note: some will begin to queue before 5 a.m. to be assigned their appointment later (after 8;30 a.m.). The Chiang Mai Immigration Calendar displays accurate holidays when IPO is scheduled to be closed on a business day M-F: http://www.chiangmaiimm.com/th-th/2016-06-05-07-26-37/2017-02-13-11-29-42.html (Note: you can scroll forward to see future month holday closures as well). Reporting Services: For various kinds of Immigration reporting see following or go to Immigration Reporting. (07/2017)
Factors Contributing to 90-day Reporting Delays and Long Queues - Last July to early August was one of the four most active TM.47 90-day reporting cycles (repeat of an annual trend) . Anticipate TM.47 lines to swell and reach peak amplitude each and every following 80-90-day period. It will grow busier following the government holiday the second week of July and will also be impacted since Immigration’s online reporting site has been up and down since May. Mid-week afternoons tend to be better than morning for TM.47 walk-in reporting. Note: You can help reduce backup and manage queues by
- submitting your 90-day report online [when the system is up and running];
- filling out forms ahead of time; or
- by filing your 90-day reporting forms by mail.
IPO office hours M-F 8:30-16:30 | Tel. 053-142-788, 053142787 Cell: 0955428125 | See MAP: 18.76619, 99.037 | See Holiday Calendar when closed. Adjacent to the mall's accessible downstairs car park at the ground level below the larger of the two Promenada buildings -- under "Tom N Toms Coffee". IPO services include Business, Education, Marriage, Religious, and other Work-Permit-related and Volunteer visa processing, Tourist Visa Extensions, Retirement Stay Extensions; 90-day and TM.30 Reporting, Medical Cases, and Re-entry Permits. Coffee shop and facilities conveniently available early mornings.
Why are the IPO queues so busy during certain times of the year? - While some months, like, November, February-March and May-June are outside of the busier 90-day busy cycles, there are 4 particularly busy cycles or waves during the year: July into mid August then recurring every 3 months onward (watch out for that first month of each quarter.) Reason: Newcomers, including many families (some required to file at least 3-4 simultaneous 90-day reports) start to arrive to volunteer or work in CM in time for the international school year. If they have not travelled outside of country (usually most do not) they need to report again each following consecutive 90-day period. Other factors:
- Some make use of Immigration’s Online 90-Day Reporting website (that is, when it is working -- their site has been up and down since the beginning of 2017 -- for weeks at a time).
- Others have had consistent success by simply Mailing their 90-day reports to Immigration.
- Some using visa service agents to do their stay extension processing and notification reporting - several agencies available around town [for list -- search the CCCC Map’s banner lens for the word “visa”] -- all willing to file your (free) 90-day notification report for you -- but for a fee (average ~ 300 baht per report). These same agents also can assist you with filing your stay extension -- for an even higher price. But they also will check to make sure forms are properly completed and also save you the inconvenience of waiting in line. [Note: Most visa agents will offer to queue in line at Immigration even during early morning hours as your surrogate -- one of the key reasons many folks use their services].
- Tourist visa applications - Expect foot traffic at Immigration to once again pick up in July/August when many new seasonal tourists arrive in Chiang Mai from latitudes above and below the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. However, their numbers will dwindle again by the low-air-quality-index months of the new year (February-March).

Thailand Visa Overstay Advisory
TM.30 Reporting Procedure - Report of Alien in Residence
Where to Report: Immigration Promenada - 2nd floor office (while the Airport Immigration reconstruction continues). Usually a very short wait, especially if you are simply updating your TM.30 information already on file with Immigration (avoid Mondays and days following holidays.) [Note: Some have reported they have been able to also use the small building 3 located at the rear of the construction site of old main Immigration located on the road on the way to the airport]. (02/2017)
CM Immigration has been expecting some to have their TM.30 reports already be on file for first time visa extensions and in particular for any visas/extension that Immigration has to send to Bangkok for final approval (that said, this may be enforced intermittently). A copy of your TM.30 report receipt may also be required for other applications such as Residence Certificates.
As an expat living in Thailand and especially if you are under the authority of Chiang Mai Immigration, you should carry in your passport your receipt for your current TM.30 report. If you or your landlord have never filed this necessary report, not only can your landlord technically be fined, but Immigration has be known to delay visa renewal / stays-of-extension for some who do not have this report on file. This has caught many tenants and their landlords unaware. Unfortunately, it is often the expat who pays the consequences so you may want to bring your landlord up to date of this requirement. [Note: If you are not a tenant, we recommend that you go to Immigration Promenada and explain your unique situation (respectful use of Thai language has aided many negotiations).]
Initial Filing -- Earlier this year Immigration, for a while, had allowed renters with a signed lease agreement to successfully file their initial TM.30 report on behalf of their absentee landlord (provided they had supplied all supporting documentation -- see “Detailed Requirements” below). In so doing, they were able to complete their missing TM.30 report that their landlord was supposed to have originally filed for them -- technically within 24 hours after they first occupied their rental home, however, lately it seems that CM Immigration has relaxed the time frame a little (but still a good idea to do as soon as possible following a move). The CCCC began telling and tried warning folks of this requirement in September 2015, however, many still seem to be caught unaware or do not understand it, in spite of what has been detailed here since that time.
Check with Promenada Immigration for current requirements as to whether you can file this on behalf of your landlord. A few of months ago (while TM.30 reporting was still being done behind the old Airport Immigration office) some Chiang Mai Immigration Officers said at that time only the landlord, or his/her designated Thai representative, should present file the tenant’s initial TM.30 report. One expat renter wrote the CCCC when they were turned away when they attempted to file their initial TM.30 reports by themselves: "...I would recommend that in general if the landlord is not personally present to do the registration, that the Thai national in their stead will need a power of attorney form signed by the landlord. This is not something that is listed on the immigration website. I found one online here which I believe would suffice, although I didn't use it myself. http://phomes.perfecthomeschia.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Power-of-Attorney-Form.pdf. The article which references this form is here, and is a very helpful explanation of the TM30 process: http://perfecthomes.co.th/tm030-registration-thailand/.". Advice: Check with Imm Prom for their requirements at the 2nd floor Immigration Prom office.
What if I just want to UPDATE an Existing TM.30 Report - In contrast, it is a lot easier to simply update your old TM.30 report receipt. Perhaps you have recently gone out of country, received a new Arrival/Departure Card # and new entry date, and now you need to update your TM.30 information you have on file with Immigration. The good news is that Imm Prom has been allowing self-reporting updates solely by the expat to his/her prior existing TM.30 report info that is already on file with Chiang Mai Immigration -- provided he/she returns to the exact same residence and reports immediately after being out of country (they say within 24 hours but have allowed some to report up to a week later without penalty). In these cases, it does not take very long to wait in queue (and you do not have to go in early morning -- just go directly to the Imm Prom 2nd floor office). CM Immigration quickly enters/updates the expats TM.30 information (new Arrival/Departure card # and most recent Date of Entry) in their database and then endorses/date stamps their existing TM.30 receipt that the expat has (if they had kept their old receipt pinned in their passport and not lost it). You would do this for each household/family member whenever they re-enter the country (avoid Mondays and days following holidays).
Again, as an expat renter it is your responsibility to inform your landlord and to keep your TM.30 info with Immigration up to date every single time that you or anyone in your household exits the country and re-enters Thailand (which triggers new Arrival Card generation) -- even if you return to the same rental address.
CAVEAT: DO NOT REMOVE from your passport your important TM.30 notification receipt should you temporarily leave the country (as some have mistakenly discarded along with their old 90-day report receipts). Immigration will want to see (and stamp) your current existing TM.30 receipt again in the future. It further guarantees that you previously had a TM.30 report already on file (and prevents you from being fined the next time the next time you return to Thailand). You must report anew to Immigration within 24 hours after you re-enter Thailand (with your new Arrival Card information) so they can stamp/update your old receipt. If you should lose this important piece of paper, go Immigration Promenada and see if they could print out a new one for your passport from their records.
It is always in your best interest to ensure that your TM.30 report is properly filed and up to date. Not only is Immigration now checking if your TM.30 receipt (and info in their database) is up-to-date when you extend your visa, but you may also need to show it if you ever apply for other Immigration procedures, like obtaining a Certificate of Residency, in the future. (Some have suggested that including a copy of their TM.30 receipt has helped to speed approval of their TM.47 90-day report they had mailed in.)
If you live in a large condominium complex, check with the designated juristic person to see if they have already filed your TM.30 report for you. (If they had, ask for a confirmation copy to include with your passport.)
What is Required (also see detailed list below): signed copy of the first page of the report for each foreigner staying in your home. However, you only have to submit one signed copy of the report’s second page listing for your entire family (on the second page you must record the required info for each member in your home). Each person should keep a copy of the submitted report confirmation receipt in his/her passport (again, do not remove this slip from your passport when you temporarily leave Thailand and plan to return to the same address -- Immigration will update this same receipt with a new date stamp when you file your next TM.30 report upon re-entry).
Note: Any future 90-day notification TM.47 reports that you also submit should conform with your TM.30 information. In the event that folks find their 90-day reports are not being approved, or if they receive a message to report to their local Immigration office in person (whether they file online or by mail), there is a fair chance that they (or their landlord) had never filed their initial TM.30 report (or it does not appear in Immigration’s database) since they last entered/returned to Thailand. (CM Immigration may also be using your TM.30 report information when processing your next 90-day report to see if your Arrival (Departure) Card ID matches what is current.)
Some who have had their 90-day reports rejected said they did not have their current Immigration TM.30 information on file (with their new Arrival Card #) with Immigration since they had last entered the country. It is important that you go to Immigration to update your TM.30 information whether you have obtained a new passport number since your last entry into Thailand or if you have a new Arrival/Departure Card # .
Now, what do I do if I should go on domestic holiday or attend a conference within Thailand for just a few days? Do I still need to file another TM.30 when I return? - There has been so much controversy about this topic! If you are part of an organization, it is our recommendation to just accept the advice of your administrator as to their current position. Unfortunately, there are still those who had earlier misunderstood or had been misinformed that you also had to file an additional TM.30 report after every domestic only overnight trips. (Then when they went to Immigration were told this was no longer necessary). It is confusing when some sites still promote outdated information and has added to the high level of ambiguity surrounding an inconsistent or non-enforced requirement.
To again clarify, If you have confined your domestic travel to only within Thailand (even if you have traveled to, and temporarily stayed, in another one of Thailand‘s provinces) and if you keep returning to the same home residence listed on your current TM.30 and you do not at any time in your temporary travel, venture outside of Thailand’s borders, Immigration Officers appear to be lenient about not having to update your TM.30 report [as always, caveat emptor]. So far… we have not heard of families being fined for not filing a new TM.30 after going on a brief domestic trip to attend an overnight conference away but still stay within Thailand.
However, what is true is that people have been fined only when they have crossed a Thai border, and then have returned to Thailand, but failed to promptly update their TM.30 information on file with Immigration shortly after they re-entered Thailand. The law says within 24 hours, but if only slightly late, Chiang Mai Immigration has shown some grace (dress and act respectfully when you go to report). If you have any concerns about your current status, just check with Immigration and see what records they might have on file for you, before you extend your next visa/stay.
What about family, college students, or associates who temporarily are visiting from another country and staying in your home? We have heard that recently Chiang Mai Immigration has allowed self-reporting by current tenants (who have a prior existing TM.30 report that is already on file with Immigration). In recently reported cases the tenant has gone with their visitor to CM Immigration (now at Promenada) and their visitor has presented their new Arrival/Departure card # and recent Date of Entry. In these cases the Immigration Office has simply updated the tenant’s existing TM.30 information in their database and prints a new TM.30 receipt for their visitor to keep in his/her passport. Recommend that you do this shortly after your new visitor arrives in Chiang Mai. Note: Technically, it is your landlord’s responsibility to submit a new TM.30 report that now includes all of your visitor’s information on the TM.30 house roster (second page of report). As such, it is best to keep your landlord advised that you have a new visitor. But for the time being, see if Immigration can simply update their database for your visitor without your landlord having to accompany you. For those who have a condominium association available, check to see if they have TM.30 online access and can file these updates for you. (12/2016)
What happens when I move/change residences? if you are a tenant, your new landlord (or you as the “possessor”) would need to submit a TM.30 form that the homeowner/housemaster would sign. If you also move to another province, whether or not as a tenant, it is your personal responsibility to also file a separate TM.28 report (see TM.28 reporting reporting procedure below).
What if I am the owner of my condominium/residence? Since you do not have a landlord, you (or your spouse if they are the owner) would submit the TM.30 -- for yourself and for each additional alien living in your home (some of the required documentation listed below may vary for owners). Do this when you first buy your residence and when you subsequently re-enter Thailand from a foreign country.
Detailed Requirements (mainly for tenants) - items required to be submitted with your TM.30 report:
- Completed TM.30 form (download), including second page with Passport #, Arrival Date, Departure Card #, Type of Visa, Stay-Until date, etc. filled in for each adult and child foreign tenant (fortunately, unlike the TM.47--90-day report, only one TM.30 report needs to be filed for the entire family);
- Signed copies of main passport pages for each foreign tenant, including copies of each person’s visa, arrival date and TM.6 (Departure card) pages;
- Signed copy of homeowner’s blue (or yellow) house book (homeowner signs - can be faxed to you);
- Signed copy of homeowner’s Thai National ID card [บัตรประจำตัวประชาชน - bat pracham tua pracha chon] (homeowner signs - Promenada may accept a faxed copy).
- Note: while not required, suggest that bring you a copy of your rental/lease agreement, if you have one (only show when asked to do so by Immigration). A Residency Certificate is not required. (12/2015)
TM.28 Reporting Procedure - Alien Change of Address Required when Moving to a New Province
You are only required to submit a TM.28 report when you formally change your permanent residence from your old province to a new province within Thailand. (Note: if you are renting, the TM.30 form is also expected from your landlord - see above procedure). However, if you move within the same province, and if you are a tenant, your new landlord (or you as the “possessor”) also would need to submit a TM.30 form (again see above procedure) that the homeowner/housemaster signs, but not TM.28 report is required. (Be prepared - Immigration may also ask to see a copy of your current lease agreement when you do the latter.) This is being enforced so that Chiang Mai Provincial Immigration learns immediately of foreign aliens transferring under their purview. We do not have a firm answer on this, but we assume that if you are moving within the same province then your TM.47--90-day notification report would cover notification of your new address -- again, if it is still within that same province, but that should conform with the new TM.30 that your new landlord reported previously. (Always best to confirm with your local Immigration on this -- please notify firstname.lastname@example.org if you should hear anything otherwise.) TM.28 reports are filed at Chiang Mai Immigration Promenada.
Note: It is our understanding, according to a recent conversation with Promenada Immigration, that if you are only visiting temporarily in another province within Thailand (e.g., taking a week-long trip to Bangkok) then you do not need to submit a new TM.28 if you return to the exact same address where you were living before your trip. Furthermore, if you travel out of country and you return to the exact same address, likewise you also would not need to submit a TM.28 form. (10/2016)
Certificates of Residence are once again available for free -- but you need to make an appointment with the upstairs Immigration Promenada Office (not to be confused with the G4T office -- Google “CCCC Map” if you do not know where this is located). Also be prepared to wait for Immigration’s minimal two-week processing.
This is a detailed summary of Promenada Immigration’s current procedure (thanks Chiang Mai Answers):
- Make an appointment for Residence Certificate (RC) application (open 9-11 a.m. M-F).
- Bring the following:
- your actual passport;
- completed Residence Certificate application form (click link);
- 2 passport photos (6x4 cm with blue background);
- signed copy of your passport’s main photo page and current visa page;
- signed copy of census registration, or House Book (tambien baan), or lease agreement;
- (new requirement) receipt of Notification of Alien in Residence report (your TM.30 receipt from your passport -- see above TM.30 procedure for questions);
- copy of TM.6 (your Departure Card from your passport).
- After 2+ weeks, return to collect your approved RC application (it’s free). Confirm with Immigration how long this certificate is effective (we have heard reports of 30 days after date of issue).
- If you need faster service, you should contact your embassy or consulate. The latter typically requires an appointment and processing fee, but the life of the certificate may be in effect longer than a free one obtained from Immigration -- check with your consular service.
A helpful resource, found at http://tielandtothailand.com/certificate-residency/, reinforces required documentation needed when applying for your certificate. Following is an anecdote from ThaiVisa: http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/943632-certificate-of-residence-another-change-to-procedure/?do=findComment&comment=11171098
As an alternative option, G4T has moved its Residency Certificate service office upstairs next to the Camera Bug shop on the second level of Building A (see the CCCC Map) -- same floor as where Chi Chang is located (in the same building as Immigration Promenada). For this service G4T charges a 500 baht fee but may be able to provide you with the RC the next business day. (11/2016)
Foreign National Information Form
Note: Since the move to Promenada, Chiang Mai Immigration no longer requires and at this time in not enforcing the Foreign National Information Form to be submitted along with 90-day reports, processing extensions, etc. [ Click here to see a digital copy of this old report. Similar to your passport country’s consular services, apparently the key purpose of this report was to be able to identify you and locate your next of kin in case of emergency. Most critical items besides name, passport # and nationality, are your address in Thailand, names of parents (mother’s maiden name not necessary), contact person for emergencies. For other fields (not all are mandatory) please refer to note at top of the form. Suggestion - (In case this is ever enforced again) Prepare and customize copies in advance per family member (much info is duplicated). Have each person sign. Bring extra photos/forms with you (they may ask for multiple copies). Change as needed for future trips. Kindly consider completing as much as you can ahead of time to help reduce queue backup and processing time for everyone.] (01/2017)
New Passport - Transferring Visa Stamps
How to transfer Immigration Visa stamps and info from old to new passport, please see this excellent write up from CMBob on TV: https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/1001661-transfer-stamps-to-new-passport/. (Note: with new passport numbers expect that online 90-day reporting will not work for you when you go to try to use it -- until you leave and re-enter Thailand. Use mail-in or walk-in instead.)
Notification of Staying in the Kingdom over 90 Days
“If you are a foreigner staying in Thailand for a period longer than [consecutive] 90 days holding a Non-Immigrant Visa, you are required by Thai Immigration to report your current address every 90 days.” - Thai Immigration
How do I report? There are currently four choices:
- Notification in Person - at the Immigration Promenada Office (cost of personal time). One family member can do this for the entire family (other members need not be present). When you line up, be sure to get a separate queue number for each member of your family reporting.
- Registered Mail - small cost of registered postage and time to copy forms and mail. See procedure below.
- Agent Assistance Service for hire - more expensive (the office right next to IPO currently charges 300 baht per individual report).
- Online reporting - Immigration’s online reporting website has temporarily available since the beginning of August 2017 (this could change at any time).
GO TO: https://sites.google.com/site/ccccrecent/home/immigration-online-reporting-help
CAVEAT: Immigration's online reporting site has been up and down since the beginning of 2017. So may suddenly become unavailable again without any warning. [it has been temporarily AVAILABLE since the end of July 2017,] When not working, try either Mail-In or In-Person reporting methods described below.]
90-day Reporting in Person

Mail-In 90 day immigration Reporting Procedure
See Mail-in Reporting Simplified Work Flow
There is also an excellent write-up published on ThaisVisa on how to mail in your 90-day reports at http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/557382-90-day-report-procedures/ [special thanks to TV moderators Tywais and cmsally]:

[Note: Recently some have also reported being able to mail their reports directly to the Promenada address a without problem. However, when the renovation of the old Airport Immigration office is completed - in 2018, they may require that all mailed-in 90-day reports to only be sent to the above address.]
Expect some delay in receiving immediate confirmation by mail from Immigration after you have mailed your report -- especially during the predictably high volume cycles which occur during the first month of each quarter (Jan, April, July, October). So if you do use mail, send your report in early enough so that you have time to report in person if you do not receive your Approval confirmation slip before your report is overdue and you are vulnerable to be fined. Overdue reports can be especially costly for families -- 2000-5000 baht penalty plus 200 baht for each day overdue -- for each family member. [Note:. If you ever do not receive a returned Notification slip from them by mail, go to Promenada Immigration and they should be able to print you a copy. See What to Do When Mail-in Reporting is Delayed? (11/2016)
Again - If you do not immediately receive a receipt/confirmation by mail make sure you go to Immigration in person so you can check that you were approved so you are not fined. [There are reports of Mail-in rejections resulting from when foreigners leave and then re-enter Thailand but forget or ignore immediately filing a new TM.30 report upon their return.] (01/2017)

- Post Office at Central Festival (2nd level) - GPS: 18.8066, 99.01818 -- see MAP. Quite a few have discovered the convenience of this little full-service Thai post office, quietly hidden away on the 2nd level, opposite the south bank of elevators (in corridor by the southern car park entrance). While not as large as a main post office, its 3-person staff still provides the same quick efficient service. Standard Thai postal rates will apply (e.g., similar to what you might expect to pay at any regular post office for an airmail letter of equal weight). Many sizes of Thai post office shipping boxes, envelopes available. This is handy if you need to send a letter or package while out juggling shopping and errands. (15 Dec)
