OCTOBER 15TH October 2023

Update from Immigration.


All Customers must now have Valid TM30 certificates for 90 day reporting. (Also to make residency certificates for making new or renewing Driving Licences,  Open Bank Account, Buy/Sell Vehicles) and all Visa Applications and re-entry permit request. 

TM30 certificate is proof of registration in your Provincial Immigration office on arrival in Thailand from overseas within 24 hours of arrival every time you travel.

This Immigration Act is applicable to ever Non Alien traveling into Thailand from Overseas.

This has been Immigration Law since 1979.

The only exceptions is Retirement Visa Holders who own there own property in there own name (not partners name) or Company name. However even those of you who fall into this category should have made at least one TM30 certificate in their time here.

This change is affecting mostly those of you that have been in Thailand long term and have not needed to show this TM30 Certificate before (even though it has been Immigration Law since 1979 because Immigration has been lenient with its rules) 


Immigration can fine you up to 2000 baht for not complying with this act.

Check your passports now to see if you have a Valid TM30 Certificate. This could prevent you having problems and a fine with immigration next time you need to use their services.

If you require our assistance to get you a updated TM30 Certificate please contact us immediately. We require passport and proof of address to complete process for you.

If you need our assistance please contact us and we can assist you with this process.

Mots Services is delighted to be an official supporter of Pattaya 24/7 Charity Appeal for the Baan Kru Ja Orphange. Please take a minute to read about their wonderful efforts over the last few years and this years plans to make childrens lives better.

In 2017 Pattay 24/7 Facebook Group raised a very decent 68,000฿, in our first appeal and we gave it all to the Pattaya Orphanage. We bought essential items and delivered them one afternoon along with a small children's party.

In 2018, we decided to change the way we collected money and chose 3 selected charities to support. We raised over 460,000฿ again with a Just Giving Campaign and selling t-shirts locally in 2 restaurants. The group, now much larger, really embraced the Appeal with 3 members alone donating 14000฿, 23,000฿ and probably the most expensive t-shirt ever sold in Pattaya, a whopping 44,000฿! We donated 30,000฿ to the excellent Hand in Hand Foundation funding eye glasses for school children, another 100,000฿ for the Pattaya Orphanage and our biggest achievement yet, building a new Dormitory, allowing us to rescue 12 young homeless girls from the streets and give them a place of safety and love, along with installing new showers and a huge games enclosure, at the massively underfunded Baan KruJa Orphanage. This remains the best 330,000฿ we have spent to date. And we threw 2 fantastic parties for the kids too..

Pattaya 24/7 guarantees that we will account for every penny we raise via an INDEPENDENT AUDIT and will be appointing an Orphans Oversight team, consisting of a group of well known, trusted expats as we did last year.

This year there is not as much money around as last year, and the Exchange Rate is worse, so we will really have to go some to break that record. But we will endevour to raise as much money as we can regardless. Thanks to Scooters kind sponsorship of every shirt, and a new Worldwide mail order set up, also thanks to them, we will give it our best shot. As someone pointed out, we only need to sell 250 shirts at last year's average donation of 2000฿ to achieve our goal.

Our fantastic new 2019/20 Appeals shirt are now available in Scooters Bars from Monday, and a worldwide mail order will commence on Tuesday. Let's build as many new Dormitories as possible, and change as many young, stressed, innocent lives as we can.


Grab a T-Shirt or make a donation at either Scooters Bar Soi 6, Scooters Bar Soi Buakhao or online at the link below and help us to help the Orphans. 100% of your money will go to them.



Please join Pattaya 24-7 Facebook Group and donate what you can for a fantastic cause. Every little helps put a smile on a childs face and a secure roof over their heads.


Thankyou Mot, Bomb and La.   4th November 2019

Heading 1


UPDATE 15.05.2562

Currently this new ruling only applies to those applying for Retirement Visas overseas in their home countries.

The Thai Government has announced that proposals are in place and agreed that all Retirees over 50 must have medical insurance if they are to make a new Retirement Visa or renew their current Retirement Visa.

This is to relieve the stress of Thai Hospitals for unpaid medical bills from Expats living in the country.

It also means that Expats will be covered for Health Care and have piece of mind if they are to be struck down by illness in Thailand.

The new rules stipulate that the Insurance package must cover the Retiree up to 400000 baht for inpatient treatment and 40000 baht for out patient treatment.

There are currently ongoing talks between Agencies  for Retirees who are unable to get Health Insurance for pre-assisting conditions or because of age restrictions on policies . The Government Agencies will be looking for alternative solutions for Expats that full under this criteria. One example already suggested would be a larger amount of money in the Expats bank account on renewal of Visa. 


Mots Services will continue to update you when  Immigration announce how they will role this policy out. 

UPDATE: 15/05/2562

Currently this new ruling only applies to those applying for Retirement Visas overseas in their home countries.

01.12.2018  The Perils Of Getting A Thai Driving Licence


Have you wondered about getting a Thai Driving Licence? Have you banged your heads against a brick wall with the procedures and processes with Immigration and The Transport Agency?

 I always have people telling me quite rightly that they can do it themselves and it only costs 800 baht to 1500 baht depending on what service and type of Driving Licence you require, when you pay all the necessary fees.  

Let me tell you about my daily experiences with Immigration and The Transport Agency.


First Immigration. Every day I see people getting fined for not having done their TM30 Check within 72 hours. This can be up to a 1600 baht fine. And Immigration are not concerned that it’s the Landlords responsibility. If you want your Residency Certificate you have to pay the fine and then of course you have to pay for the Residency Certificate. Then I see people get sent home because they have not got the correct rental contract or they have not been notified that immigration have changed the rules again and only accept different versions of rental contracts or the House Books data is not correct. 

Up to 2-3 hours later and once you have navigated the Immigration Desks you have your trip to the Transport Agency to look forward to. The drive is a 30 minute drive from Central Pattaya.

Transport Office

3 Phrases to describe the Transport Office.  Organised  Chaos, Daunting, Zero Patience !!

The Traffic Police have ramped up there multiple 24 Hours Check Points and the Traffic Fines are ever changing. This has convinced Thais and the Expat Community that Thai Driving Licences are the way to go.

So when you finally find the Transport Agency and you think you have made good time, you will see a line of people waiting not so patiently in the hope of getting a ticket. On a bad day the line snakes round the walls of the Transport Agency. You see, the Transport Agency only give out a certain amount of tickets daily to Thais and Westerners and if you miss out on a ticket you are told “ Go home, come back tomorrow”. Don’t even think of begging or explaining you have driven through torrential rain at the crack of dawn. Because they will say, “ Go home, come back tomorrow”. Another favorite of the LINE GUARD is to tell you, “Go home, Come back tomorrow. You wear wrong tee-shirt”. Yes, there is a dress code.  

When the doors finally open the crush begins. Everybody, man woman and Soi dog’s crashes through the doors and gets to waits on the Ground Floor looking up at the Digital Number Boxes waiting for their ticket number to appear in Bright Red Neon Lights. 

Your number appears and you are thinking I made it. Hahahahaha. So wrong !!

You troop up the stairs and you are confronted with the Headmasters Desk. Paperwork Check time!! Wrong papers, not enough copies, wrong Licence, Licence not translated, and wrong size photo all receives the same monotoned advice. “Go Home, Come Back Tomorrow “.  “Why you ask” ?  “ Paper no good” they reply. “Why you ask?” “Go home, come back tomorrow”. Anger boiling inside you are quite rightly thinking, Help !! You see with the amount of people waiting to be processed and the Transport Agency Staff English Language skills they do not have the time or will to help you !

If you make it through the Headmasters checks you then wait patiently for your eye tests. Normally Thais go first. You are then confronted with the Eye Tests. Color Blind and Depth Perception Tests. If you do not listen clearly or you are the 58th Person In The Queue you may not here the garbled instructions clearly or be able to see the demonstration. If you fail and they are busy, guess what? “Go Home, come back tomorrow”.  

You get through the eye tests. Depending on what type of licence service you require that day. Either making a new Licence, Transfer your home country Licence,  or Renewing your Thai Licence you are either taken off to a room to watch the Thai Safety and Road Laws Videos, or carry out the Theory Test’s for car and bike (45 out of 50 for pass)  or you wait again patiently for your Picture to be taken for your new Licence.  You are told to go to several desks to get this process done.

If you are unlucky enough to have to do the manual driving tests or have to sit the Theory Test for car and bike (Car and Bike Theory Tests are different and you must get 45/50 to pass),  make sure you llisten clearly and keep up with the Instructions as you make your way round the Driving Course or Sit in The Computer Room. One mistake, “Go Home, Come Back Tomorrow”.

So finally you have your Licence when you have completed this Obstacle Course of Tests, Checks and more Tests. You have lost a few hours of your life, your blood pressure is elevated and you hope never to see the Transport Agency Again.


So in Summary, you can do it yourself or use an agent. If you want a stress free life, Mots Services will check your papers and immigration status and prepare all your paperwork (Immigration Residency Certificate and Medical Certificates included) so when you get to the Transport Office everything has been double checked. Mot will pick you up at your Residence and drive you in comfort to the Transport Office.  On arrival, you can sit and enjoy a coffee while Mot gets your Entry Ticket and deals with the Headmasters Desk. Mot will explain everything in detail, the process, and the test instructions for each individual test and will be there to hold your hand through the entire process. If you have to do the Theory Test, Mot will give you the Theory Test Questions and Answers to learn before you go and other learning materials are included. Mot will walk you round the Driving Course and explain the course in good, clear English.  And when you finally have your shiny new Licences without all the stress, Mot will take you home and you can drive legally on the roads of Thailand.  BE LEGAL BE SAFE !!!
