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.

I've been in Korat for 28 years now with the visa issued at that time, it was extended year after year. And a 90-day report of this address I have been doing for as long as they have computers. When renewing the extension of stay a copy of my wife's house book and her ID card had to be submitted. She also had to fill in a form that she lives with me at that address, that I have income, that I am "gentle", and of course that she would report to Immi if that changed. ;)

Today, the young pre-examiner complained that there was no receipt of a TM30 report in my passport. He sent us to the young staffed Investigations office next to the 90-day office. There, my wife had to fill out a TM30 report and submit a copy of her house book and ID card. I got a third note (in addition to departure card and 90-day receipt) attached to the passport. Penalties for the 28-year-long "delay" did not have to be paid. My wife then got a code and a password written down, with which she could make the TM30 report online in the future. In addition, she was "warned" that visiting officers would check that I actually lived in her house. :-[

Then the annual extension of stay was renewed as always; I think that this time I only had to complete and sign three papers more than before at the pre-examination, firstly about my income, where options were provided for certificate of the embassy about proven pension, bank balance of and regular foreign transfer to Thai bank account. And then lots of confirmations of teachings about Overstay, work, obligation to report any change of life circumstances (such as divorce, loss of income, etc.) and the devil knows what else; I did not read everything in a concentrated way: the forms that had printed for place "Nakhon Ratchasima" already were not very comprehensible in English, not well translated, the phrasing obviously had not been checked by a lawyer in English. Probably done by the Google translator! The text in Thai may be more understandable if you can read it. ;)

Once with the deciding officer, everything went fast and without problems, as always.
