Unlike the main office the Bluport one has a tablet computer feedback questionnaire on each desk. One of the questions is did the officer ask for any bribe. So, they are only handling the very basic stuff.

It was standing room only when I arrived to do my 90 day report this morning (I was still out in 20 minutes).

About 5 minutes into the queue, a lady stood at the counter and announced that everybody would need proof of address. I panicked initially, thinking I had nothing with me, until I remembered I had my ID Card in my wallet.

There were a few gaps in the number sequence that followed, so I guess some people left upon hearing the announcement.

When I got to the counter, I just handed my passport over, and the lady was processing it. Mrs BB asked why I wasn't being asked for proof of residence. The lady said that because I'd lived here a number of years, it was not necessary. The announcement was for newbies.

Yes, I heard the same announcement last week when doing my 90 day report. If I remember correctly, the lady said that those without proof of address needed to go to the main office.

Did a 90 day and bought a re-entry permit at Bluport today. Apart from a photocopy of my passport (for re-entry), no other paperwork was required. The photos I had were redundant as they have a camera at the desk. In and out in under 15 mins.

It was nice to see the staff dressed in Thai costume. Much more welcoming than police uniforms. The one guy was probably happy. He had a Thai button-up shirt over his jeans and trainers!!

I am due to do my annual retirement visa next month and was wondering if the office near the Kings Palace is still open. I know this visa cannot be done at Blueport and haven't heard anything about the new Immigration Office finally opening. I hope the new office never gets completed as it is stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Regarding proof of address, isn't the address registration done at the main office proof enough? Everything of bills are in my wife`s name and driving license still with address from previous province lived!

Thank you.

5 minutes to do my 90 day report on Thursday at Blueport, just handed in my passport no further documents required. Far easier than trying on line unless you live a long way from an immigration office or have difficulties getting around.

5 mins!! They must have been having a 'go slow' day.

Seriously though, I've done it in just under 2 mins. It was so quick the first time that I timed it the second time.....

Years ago, when I first started visiting China on biz, the immigration officers were surly and suspicious. Then suddenly (and to my amazement, as I'd not seen them anywhere else at that time) they installed smiley face customer satisfaction buttons. All of a sudden, the officials were friendly and smiling!

I don't know if these gizmos make officials better at their job, but it's certainly nicer for the people they deal with..
