According to local agencies, of today, foreigners who were issued their six-month or one-year visas by the Chonburi Immigration Bureau no longer have to go to the immigration office to report in person every 90 days.
Visa holders wishing to stay legally in Thailand more than 90 days and hold valid visas now have two other choices. The first choice is to sign a Power of Attorney form and let someone else submit the form.
The second and easiest choice to report is by mailing the “Form for Alien to Notify of Staying Longer than 90 Days,” form TM. 47 to the immigration office before the due date of reporting which is 90 days after the last entry into Thailand and is stamped in the passport.
Police Colonel Chusak Panutumpon, is the new Chief of Chonburi Immigration located in Pattaya on Jomtien Soi 5. On his second day in office the new chief, as is customary, was introduced to news agencies to clarify his role and discuss his objectives for his new assignment in Pattaya and ask for suggestions.
