Now the computers are fully up and running with printers.I was told when you visit next time you dont need to use the TM.47 form (90 days)just bring your passport with the last reporting slip that is stapled in your passport.Now the computer prints the date.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Update

Another change of staff and no ladies in sight now.

90 Day Report: For those who don't already know, there is no form to complete now. The last time I reported I was still being asked to confirm my name but this time a form was printed from the records for me to sign. Passport is still required, of course.

Extension: The new forms are mainly in Thai. I don't yet know whether the proof of address and marriage requirements have changed.

General: Visitors are no longer allowed to enter through the rear doors from the car park. The disappointing change is that the snack chiller is empty!

There are road works in the area. The turn into the Immigration office soi was closed today but there are signs, in Thai, directing visitors another way. I doubt whether the closure will last for more than a day or so.

That is what I expected, when I was there a week ago. The lady told me, things had changed again on August 1, and gave me the usual form to fill out. I better should have printed out and taken along the one I got filled out already in my computer.  :-[

But the lady printed out the receipt she stapled in my passport. I didn't sign on what she had printed out, just on the one I had to fill out.

The very pretty lady named Dow who spoke good English & would never have hit her chin on the ground if she had fallen over is now in Nong Khai Immigration.

Was there for my 90 days report today. They changed things again. For the 90 days report you need to go to counter 5, that is the room opposite the entrance, to the right of the staircase up, a few steps down. The number you can get at a new machine just in front of the room. In tiny letters you can read on the machine that it is for the 90-days report. Over the door is a new board showing which numbers are served now. It says on the door "90-days report", but, when the door is open, that you can only see when you're inside the room.

There are two desks inside, staffed with a lady on the left and a gent on the right. Opposite the desks are chairs lined up along the wall.

When my number came up I entered the room, handed my passport and filled-out TM 47 to the gent, who was alone now; the lady had gone out. He put my passport on a pile behind the printer, out of my view. The chairs were almost all occupied by young Thai females in college uniform, one Thai male, all holding EU passports in their hands and probably doing the reports for farang friends or relatives. The officer kept on working, from time to time handing a passport back to one of the waiting. He answered a call on his mobile phone, chatting for a while, before he finally got to doing my report. When finished he wanted to hand my passport to a foreigner who had come long after me and was probably waiting for his number to be called. Only upon my objection the officer had a look at the picture in the passport, and then looking embarrassed handed it to me without a word. So better make sure as long as you're in there, that the passport you're given back, is your own, and yours isn't given to somebody else!
