DocumentsAt Samut Prakan Immigration Office, immigration officers want originals and copies of all your important documents. Here’s a list of them.
- completed TM.47 form (downloadable form)
- TM.6 departure card
- last receipt of 90-day notification
- copy of your passport photo page
- copy of your visa
- copy of your TM.6 departure card
When to GoIf your 90-day check-in date is approaching, make sure to go to immigration as close to your reporting date as possible. You’ll have seven days grace period from your report date to check in, so as long as you go within those seven days, you won’t be fined. If you show up a day after that seventh day, you’ll be fined 2,000 baht. There are no exceptions. One time I showed up one day late to Bangkok Immigration with paperwork showing that I was in the hospital under the doctor’s care. But the immigration officer said I still had to pay. If I couldn’t make it, she noted, I could’ve had someone else check in for me.
ProcessThe 90-day reporting process is fairly easy if you know what to do ahead of time. Here’s what you can expect from start to finish.
