Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

I am qualified for retirement but keep busy with consultant work while I still have some oil in my tank. Up until maybe 3 years ago, I had the pick of maybe 3 or 4 gigs a year that helped my avoid 90-day reports but more importantly, got me out of this arguably blighted Realm for a reality check. L...

Re: Cambodia or Thailand

Have only been to Phnom penh twice in the last six weeks, for roughly a week at a time, but this place has potential in the coming years and is starting to move. I can't speak for the province areas, (haven't been there) but then my intention, if I did move there, would only be to live in the city o...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

A change of personal circumstance, plus I just can't sit an twiddle my thumbs all day. Managed to keep myself busy part of the time, but some days are just very slow. Plus I am still at an age to do it, at least for a few more years. Another two - three years down the track and it will be a little m...

Re: John's budget build

Hi John Nice to see that you are nearly finished and about to start your gardens, by the look of it. Don't buy your plants, just pot/grow them from cuttings. You would be surprised how many plants grow from cuttings, after you dip them in a bit of Root Hormone or Vitamin B1 and then just stick them ...

Re: World Cup Rugby

I think pipoz is not banging on about the English being defeated and only made an informed call as to Eddie Jones's comments. Perhaps it was Eddie's attitude to the loss which caused his players to sook around at the presentation and not wear their 2nd place medals. Eddie Jones should have complime...

Re: World Cup Rugby

I listened to Eddie Jones's crap response in the after match interiew, when he defended the result by saying, something along the lines of, "these things happen and look we are still the second best team in the world". Sorry Eddie, but one game does not make you the second best team in the world and...

Re: World Cup Rugby

Brilliant tactics by the South African Coach. He did his homework well. You could see it in the way the Safa's tackled the English big men players and the speed off their line. As for Eddie Jones, well Eddie, you will just have to eat a lot of that sh...t that you peddled in this last week.

STWW , not quiet sure about all that? I understood it, that if I want to/try to extend my current Non Imm O-A Visa in March 2020 (out to 2021), then I will need to have my Long Stay Health Insurance in place by next March 2020 But between now and say February 2020, I can come and go from Thailand wi...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

The intention now is that I will fly out for a week just before my Non-Imm Type O-A Vista expires, sometime in March 2020, and then re-enter Thailand on a 30 Day Tourist Visa. After being back a week, I will then apply for a Non-Imm Type O Visa (not a extension of my O-A), which when the Type O is a...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

OK, I've read through it several times, still aren't sure what it says. But it appears to say all extensions of stay for Non O-A or rather extension of stay based on retirement. The wording is that extensions of stay (for retirement) where the original visa entry was a Non-OA need insurance issued ...

Cambodia now has a straight forward retirement visa, up to a year. No reporting or income requirements. From my reading it is easy to get if 55+.
That's what I was told (no reporting or income requirements) when I was there
