Regulation Known as TM30

The organizations representing the foreign business communities in Thailand has opposed the decision made by Thai Immigration to apply immigration law year 1979.

For months, foreigners working and residing in Thailand have been venting about dramatically increased immigration reporting requirements under a regulation known as TM30.

Last week, the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce of Thailand issued a statement on the need for a reconsideration of the order and sent a letter of “concerns and recommendations” to Interior Minister of Thailand.

The communities stressed that “Ease of doing business is a hallmark of any nation`s attractiveness for trade, investment and tourism and TM30 is undoing those good achievements. Our neighbors do not have such kind of these continuous tracking requirements”

This kind of requirements on foreign national living in Thailand has caused many businessmen to rethink their investment in Thailand.
