ASEAN Today – Regional Legal and Business News for May 2019 including an Immigration update on the TM30 reporting requirement and health insurance requirements for retirement visas and an overview of the employee benefits under the new Labour Law.
TM30 Reporting Advisory Although a new Head of the Immigration Bureau has been appointed, at present, there has been no change to the policy of reporting to the Immigration Department each time a foreigner enters Thailand. The reporting process remains as follows: Within 24 hours of arriving in Thailand a hotel, service apartment, or owner of the residence where the foreigner will be residing must file a TM 30 notification with the Immigration Department.
This regulation applies to foreigners who own their own condos in Thailand; they will need to make this report on their own behalf. Each time a foreigner returns to Thailand from a foreign trip, a new report must be made.
