THAILAND – 90-Day Report Can Be Filed Online
Effective 1 April 2015, the Thailand Immigration Bureau will implement an online filing system for the 90-day residence report for foreign nationals, which should make the reporting process easier.
What is the 90-Day Report?
Any foreign national who remains in Thailand continuously for more than 90 days is required to report his or her current address to the Immigration Bureau within a period of 15 days before and 7 days after the 90 days is reached.
Until now, the report had to be submitted at the Immigration Department Office where the foreign national’s visa was issued, either in person or by mail.
Failure to file a 90-day report can result in a fine of 2000 baht (about $60) or more.
Foreign nationals can now make their 90-day residence report by submitting a notification form online here or via the main Immigration Bureau site, within a period of between 15 days and 7 days before the due date of notification.
The status of the application can be checked during the remaining 7 days before the due date, and a receipt must be downloaded as proof of submission, once the application has been marked as approved.
However, at present the online report filing system is only available for those using Internet Explorer as their browser.
- Ensure that a 90-day report is submitted either in person, through an agent, by mail or online within the allowed period.
- Be aware that the filing period is much shorter for online submission of the report.
