Went to immigration to do my 90 day report this afternoon as I figured it was the only day it would not be insane this week.  Perhaps, but it was busy enough.

 

The young lady at the front counter only asked what I wanted to do and gave me a number rather than pre-checking my paperwork.

 

There were fifteen ahead of me at counter #4 but things moved along quickly.  The officer checked my TM.47, and then scanned the last blue receipt.  If that was from the last 90 day report, that was interesting because it would have been before the first of the year thanks to out of country travel and my most recent extension.  She looked at the TM.6, checked something in the computer and gave me a new blue receipt and all of my copies of the lease, passport pages and TM.6.  

 

I think I will still take my copies next time.

I was there this morning to first pick up my passport with a new extension to stay, and then do my 90 day report. Getting the passport back was quick, but close to an hour wait until my number came up for the 90 day report. Usually in and out in minutes, but wasn't surprised by the delay today given yesterday was a holiday and another closure coming up on the 26th.

 

I've been several times now for the 90 day report with just the bar coded receipt. Never been asked for copies of anything, so don't bother anymore. Wish we didn't have to jump through the 90 day report hoop, but have to say since the introduction of the bar coded receipt it's been relatively quick and painless.

I just take my passport for 90-day reporting too. Last time in early October I timed it right and was in and out in just 3 minutes.

I made my report online Tuesday at 11:59 and then went out for lunch.
When I came back about 1 hour later,  my report had been approved already  B)

My attempt at using the online system failed this time. I don't think I have managed to use it for two successive reports yet.
Visited Soi 5 today around 11am and surpriaed that were just over 40 people in front of me and only one guy on the desk. However, he was getting through the work pretty quickly and the wait was around 45-50 mins.

Yup, a guy who lives in my building came in a little bit later and he was getting a bit twitchy as the clock moved towards midday. However, it looked as though they were dealing with everyone who had been given tickets before taking their break.

On a busy day they sometimes turn people away at 11, or sooner, and say come back after lunch.

Anyhow, thanks for update, mine to do in a week or two, then the dreaded extension renewal soon after...... :yikes:

It's rare that one can say this about a Thai operation, but they really do an outstanding job at Pattaya Immigration.
