If you wish to stay in Thailand for an extended period, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with 90-Day Report (Thailand-specific immigration process).
Every foreign national who stays in Thailand for a period longer than 90 consecutive days is required by the Thai Immigration Bureau to report the current address by submitting TM.47 form to immigration office (where his/her long-term visa was issued). The filing can be done 15 days prior to the due date but no later than 7 days after the due date. In case of late reporting, the foreigner will be fined THB 2,000 to 5,000. If he/she travels outside of Thailand, the 90-day report date will be reset.
For the first 90-day report, it is recommended that physical documents are submitted to immigration office to ensure a smooth process (for most immigration offices, foreigner’s physical presence is not required if a power of attorney is granted to his/her authorized rep). After the first reporting, online report can be made to Immigration Bureau via online system.
If you are an LTR Visa holder, the 90-day report has been extended to one-year report as one of the privileges. So if you travel outside of Thailand within the year, no reporting will be required.
