Thanks I just may need this......mind reader???
Only applies to Chiang Mai. You need to confirm what Surin immigration are. FYI TM 28 is not new but enforcement of it has become a hot topic since 2014.
I was under the impression that JohnB may have encountered this recently in Kab Cheong. I may be completely wrong though.
Your correct on that but the link you gave is talking about Chiang Mai not Surin and immigration districts tend to treat matters differently. TM 28 is to my knowledge required by Surin Immigration
I have not been asked for one (ever) and I'm due for a 90 day report in two weeks. Not that it should be a problem as I have not "relocated" for some time.
My wife was fined 800 baht for not reporting that I had returned to live in her house after a trip to Europe. This happened at my last 90 day report.
I thought the form to advise Immigration of such matters was the TM30.
As I said its up to them not Chiang Mai. BTW I have never to my knowledge turned a TM 28 into KCI or SI. And my wife to my knowledge has never turned in a TM 30 to KCI or now SI. Go figure.
Doesn't the TM 6 qualify as notification of your address when you arrive in country? Obviously on condition that you complete the TM 6 accurately and do not relocate subsequently.
Technically no. But you need to ask YOUR. local immigration office. Not Pattaya, Bangkok or Chiang Mai. They will all read it to suit them.
Does that then mean that (dependent upon the area where you stay) as a visitor and in addition to the TM30 completed by your hotel/guest house, you personally have to complete a TM 28 and submit it to the local immigration office? Is anyone in authority telling this to the thousands of tourists arriving every day (according to TAT)?
