    Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    Do you know if hotels are obliged to inform if you are an over stayer? The same question lso if staying in someones home. For example I have rented a condo for a day or 2 in the past and know that the authorities were not informed. I also rent a condo on a one year lease but leave and go back. Should I be reporting myself? Also if a friend stays does the same apply?
    What are the penalty's for getting it wrong?

    On the immigration form I fill in I do say that I am going to the condo.

    It is the landlords responsibility to do the report, not the renter's. They only take a copy of your details page, so I don't think overstay could or would be reported.

    As long as the baht keeps flowing in, I'm sure many locals could care less about the legality of a renter's visitor status. JMO'

    They probably feel it is not their responsibility to check up on their tenants as long as they are paying on time and not doing damage. I can understand that.

    I can see the tenants side also. When you come to a country temporarily and move from place to place sightseeing or whatever, you shouldn't have to feel like where you sleep at night is the government's business.

    When I was in Vietnam the hotel desk kept everyone's passports and reported their details daily to the Police.

    Yikes! We are told to never turn over out passports. That would be a predicament.

    Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    On the arrivals card i just put "various" down as my address and explain i'm moving from place to place. 5 years ago when i was here, i'd say less than half of the guesthouses took my passport details. Now 99% of them do. Plus i still have to deposit my passport when hiring a motorbike as i have no other form of photo ID, though some accept a cash deposit ranging beween 1000B and 5000B, depending on how long i'm renting for. Let's hope they never loose it.

    I think a ban is a bit much unless you're a repeat offender or overstay without good reason or for a long time. If your flight was at 2am not 2pm as you thought and overstayed by 2hrs, would you still be banned? I guess rules are rules at the end of the day.

    Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    From the news in the UK today: "Landlords who fail to check the immigration status of tenants could be fined or imprisoned for up to five years under a new criminal offence to be included in the bill."

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...migrant-crisis

    I wonder if this law will come to Thailand?

    There have already been reports on the inter-web where a foreigner's thai wife went to their local immigrations office to turn in a TM30 (Notification from for house-master, owner or possessor of the residence where alien has stayed) only to have immigrations threaten them with a fine for not having done it already.

    No reports on whether anyone has been fined or not.

    Why on Earth would a law passed in Britain come to Thailand ? Do you wonder whether every law passed in every country might come to Thailand ?
