90-Day Reporting

90-Day Reporting

90-Day Reporting. For foreigners residing in Thailand for more than 90 days, staying compliant with immigration regulations is crucial. One essential requirement is the 90-day reporting, a process of notifying the Immigration Bureau of your current address every three months. This article provides a comprehensive guide to understanding and fulfilling this obligation.

Who Needs to Report?

The 90-day reporting applies to all foreign nationals holding a temporary stay permit and planning to stay in Thailand for longer than 90 consecutive days. This includes individuals on:

  • Non-Immigrant Visas (e.g., marriage, retirement, education)
  • Extensions of Stay

Tourists with visas valid for less than 90 days are exempt from this requirement.

The Reporting Window

You have a window of opportunity to submit your report. Ideally, you should file it within:

  • 15 days before your 90-day period ends.
  • 7 days after the 90-day period ends.

Reporting Methods

There are three ways to complete your 90-day reporting:

  • In Person: Visit your local Immigration Office and submit the completed TM.47 form along with necessary documents.
  • By Mail: Registered mail is an option, but ensure you receive confirmation of receipt.
  • Online: For those who have previously reported in person at least once, online reporting through the Immigration Bureau website offers a convenient alternative.

Required Documents

Here’s what you’ll need to have ready for your report:

  • Completed TM.47 form (available at Immigration Offices)
  • Passport (original and copy)
  • Visa or Extension of Stay document (original and copy)
  • Proof of residence (e.g., rental agreement, utility bill)

Consequences of Non-Compliance

Failing to submit your 90-day report within the designated timeframe can lead to:

  • Fines of up to 2,000 baht
  • Potential delays when renewing your visa or extension


  • The 90-day period starts from your date of entry into Thailand and resets upon each re-entry.
  • If your address changes within the 90-day period, you are required to update your information with Immigration.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure a smooth and compliant stay in Thailand. Remember, it’s always best to consult with immigration authorities or immigration specialists for the latest regulations and specific requirements.
