Visa Registration Guide
All foreigners who are staying in Thailand for more than 3 months must report to the Immigration Office every 90 days to report their current address. This goes for all types of visas with expiry of more than 3 months. The procedure is simple, though it’s best not to be late for registration as there is currently a 2,000 Baht fine for late reporting (No more than 7 days after 90 day period). If you are late by more than 7 days, you risk being arrested and fined 4,000 Baht.
You can report to Immigration at the following locations:
- Immigration Bureau Office, Chaengwattana, Bangkok
- Visa extension units, Ratchada Centre (BOI)
- Immigration offices throughout the country (See Visa extension for a full list of offices)
It is also possible to report by mail. If you wish to do so, you must submit the following:
- Copy of all passport pages (up to the latest arrival stamp in the Kingdom or latest visa stamp)
- Copy of arrival/departure card TM. 6 (front and back)
- Previous notifications of staying over 90 days (if any)
- Completely filled in and signed notification form TM. 47
- Envelope with 5 Baht stamp affixed and return address of foreigner for the officer in charge to send back the lower part of form TM. 47 after having received the notification. This part must be kept for reference and for future notifications of staying over 90 days.
