Yes i know it's for pattaya - but i should imagine it applys to all - it says no need to register every time we leave home

Completing the TM30 form once is enough for those on an extension of stay, Khun Pichai told Fabulous 103FM. Because foreigners on an extension of stay submit a 90 day report, they do not need to submit a TM30 form each time they return from a trip outside the province. thaivisa.com

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Very good, like you say it's for Pataya, may be we need to ask our local immigration department?

Another question that has been in  the back of my mind, if one has the required funds in the bank, ie: 800,000 Baht and during the period 2 months before and 3 months after (5 months), one is in need of medical care and you have to pay the medical bills that then deplete's your savings, what does immigration do or is there a leniency provision until one can bring the said ballance back up to the required amount?

KC - just MO

I see no purpose in Pattaya going it alone with this ruling - as it'll be Folks from OTHER provinces on 'Extension of Stay' that will benefit from the Pattaya interpretation - if he is instructing just Pattaya residents on the point the other Provinces will need the same or he'll be dropping them in it !  :o

As for leniency if you spend your B800/B400K on medical costs - I suggest you don't hold your breath !  ;)
And after all, Falang are 'encouraged' to have health insurance . . . . .

And thanks to Thaiga  :)

TM30 is something that has completely passed me by.  I did not know about this requirement.  When I make the trips to Bangkok, the hotel copies my pink card and I think they are responsible for sending the TM30.  On coming back to Korat, I think the pink card obviates the need for a TM30.  However, I may be wrong about that.  As for health insurance, I hope we do not have to go down that road.
