  • (1888PressRelease) May 07, 2015 - The websites and state that the 90 Day Report online application must be submitted within 15 days and not less than seven days before the due date of 90 Day notification. The processing time begins when Immigration has received the completed application form within seven working days. The person can check his/her application status online, within seven days after the application is submitted.

    Once the 90 Day Report application has been approved, a receipt of the notification can be printed out which should then be kept in the passport. The receipt will also show the next due date of notification.

    90 Day Report notification that is overdue cannot be done through the online system.

    "This is good news for the expat community in Thailand, in that it offers a more convenient and time friendly option of meeting the 90 Day Report requirement", said BSA Law spokesman Apisakdi Kongkangwanchoke.

    As a leading law firm in Thailand, BSA Law provides various legal services and advice to foreigners and Thais. This ranges from general Thai law and Thai labour law issues to Thailand work permit and visa processes, accounting, auditing and tax consulting, investment advice and guidance on starting a business in Thailand.

    The 90 Day Report requirement - in which a foreigner staying in Thailand for longer than 90 days must notify immigration of this, and must do so for each period of 90 days - is widely considered an unnecessary and time consuming exercise. Before the introduction of the new online system, this typically saw the foreigner having to report in person to immigration every three months.

    The process can also be done through registered mail, with the required documents needing to arrive seven days before the due date of notification.

    If a person is unable to fulfill the 90 Day Report requirement by or on the due date, there is a grace period of seven days beyond the expiration of the 90 day period. For those who do not report, there is a fine of THB 2,000 which rises if the person happens to be arrested for any reason.

    Important to note is that renewing a visa or Thailand work permit does not constitute meeting the 90 Day Report requirement. The 90 Day Report must be done separately.
