They are required by law to report, which hotel is this?

I am still in negotiations with hotel.

I would just inform them that they can either do the TM30 or you will file a police report tomorrow.

If they don't do it visit immigration tomorrow, file an official police report because they break the law, and then attach a copy of this police report instead of the TM30 receipt to your extension application, might work.

Thanks. We told them already if they don't refund my money I will call police. They agreed to refund 6 nights initially but incredibly now saying that they have no cash and will refund to my fiancé's bank tomorrow.  I paid them for a week in full in cash when we checked in at 3:15pm.

That's all good however doesn't solve your TM30 problem. For me the extension is #1 priority.

Is there a hotel where you could check in of course making sure that they will do TM30 and provide printout for you.

Where was your previous hotel.

No offense but given that you have left it to last minute bit surprised that you did not insist on seeing the tm30 with this hotel when checking in.

Hi Jack. We actually tried to do the visa extension last week and immigration gave us a link to a line app to book an appointment and given tomorrow. Our hotel last few days was in my girlfriends hometown of pattalung and I have the printout of that tm30. We messaged this hotel today as we travelled here to make sure they did it. However only when we got here was there a problem

am i missing something here

I thought it was the hotels problem to notify immigration not his, so why would this effect his extension ?

If it does effect him, why can he not just do a TM30 before asking for extension.

I had to do this in my I.O , even though the hotel had notified immigration, but immigration still insisted i had to do a TM30, because i had been in a hotel, before they would let me do my 90 day report

Easy

Just go & get /apply for extension & if the matter comes up, just tell immigration I thought / or they refused to do 

Thai law for thais & up to them

You changed your location today, so is there any reason why you can't do the TM 30 yourself at immigration tomorrow?

 

I would still report the hotel to the authorities for trying to scam you out of 1,000 baht.

Update:

 

My fiance called immigration hotline and they simply told us to tell hotel that they must register us within 24 hours. Not much help. 

 

The hotel have now said that they will send someone to immigration tomorrow and they will do my tm30 . They said they are unable to do it online as they are not registered and could only do it in person. However, they say it could be after 11 and I have to be there at 10:15.

 

So I'm just going to call in to the office next to immigration that handles the tm30 before my appointment and explain everything. I have my tm30 printout for earlier this week in pattalung and I will have my fiance to translate. 

 

Thanks for all the advice

That would not be accepted since you are now in Hat Yai province and using the immigration office there.

Luckily I asked for a receipt today when I checked in so have that. 

 

Also have all the Facebook messenger exchanges from my fiance with the hotel for the past 4 hours if they deny anything. 

 

Cheers everyone 

 

This thread latest post indicates you might have time up your sleeve for extension

Immigration don't miss an opportunity, expect a fine up to 2,000 baht. 

 

Don't forget to give a hotel review on trip advisor. Shady landlords including condos don't want to do TM30s

Excellent result! 

Did you also notice that it seems that the 60 day covid extensions have been continued.

ps personally I would skip the review. It's well known that some hotels don't do TM30 (yes they should). 

You have your extension so happy ending.

There are not many other foreigners here but I did hear them tell a man that he should wait another week to do his extension. I can get my fiance to ask them if you wait a little 👍

Think it's pretty much certain. TV agent posted it in a thread yesterday (I posted their comment above).

I believe Ubonjoe is in process of translating it.
